Rings of Power: This is what happens in the season premiere

Rings of Power: Galadriel

Rarely have fans waited for a series premiere with such conflicting feelings as they did for Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power. Now the cat is out of the bag, in the form of two episodes that Amazon made available to its Prime customers on September 1, 2022. We have looked at them, tell what happened in them and draw a first interim conclusion.

Welcome to the Second Age

The first two episodes of Rings of Power spend a lot of time introducing viewers to the world of the Second Age and the version of Middle-earth that Amazon created. So there isn’t much action, but an overview of the status quo. It is as follows:

Centuries after defeating Middle-earth’s arch-villain, Morgoth, the Elven people yearn for peace. Only Galadriel is obsessed with catching Sauron, her brother’s killer, and pursues him to the ends of the earth. This does not please Elf King Gil-galad at all, nor does Galadriel’s close friend Elrond, who worries that the Elf will be consumed by her quest. Gil-galad decides to officially end the war against Morgoth’s minions and send all warriors to the west where they can find everlasting peace.

Galadriel is also there, but she jumps out of the boat at the last minute to continue her search for Sauron. Meanwhile, Elrond makes the acquaintance of the elven smith Celebrimbor, who wants to build a forge in order to create things in it that are supposed to outshine even the legendary Silmaril. For that he needs help. Elrond proposes an alliance with the dwarves – but they are difficult people, which is also Elrond’s fault.
