The Two Towers Scene 5

Scene 5

Scene 5

  • Éomer and company come across the slaughter left by Saruman's orcs. They find the barely-living body of Théodred, son of Rohan's king, Théoden.
  • Éomer returns and, along with his sister Éowyn, tries telling his uncle Théoden that they must take action to stop Saruman's armies.
  • But Grima Wormtongue, a fellow as slimy looking as his name sounds, speaks to the very old and tired King, telling him that Éomer is a war-mongering fool.
  • In fact, Théoden has already signed a document banishing Éomer, although this seems to be wholly Wormtongue's doing.
  • Éomer is dragged away by Rohan guards.
