Scene 22

Scene 22

  • The preceding scene ends with a close up of a sewer underneath the great wall of Helm's Deep.
  • We hear Saruman's voice and then see Saruman speaking to Wormtongue about this sewer, which he says is Helm's Deep's one weakness.
  • We see him pouring out some black powder, making sure Wormtongue gives it a wide berth with the candle he's holding.
  • Wormtongue insists that it would still take an army of thousands or tens of thousands to breach the impenetrable fortress.
  • Saruman agrees, and then walks out to the balcony of his Orthanc and addresses the enormous army of orcs and uruk-hai he's been gathering. Wormtongue is stunned.
  • He tells them to march to Helm's Deep and leave none alive. We have a feeling this is going to be a long night.
