    I was thinking of having Sauron and Shelob develop Black Speech down the line in the Second Age. Maybe Sauron and Morgoth develop this speech to hide their movements?...

    There would have been some sort of Melkian language in Anfband, probably a predecessor for Sauron´s invented language.

    Some of our Orc Names, Boldog, Gorgol, Lug, Othrod would come from that language.

    I think the Sauron-Shelob connection shouldn't be overplayed...
    Sauron calls her his cat, to him she´s a halfblood or some degenerate thing, not even really a maia, and to her - she´s only into eating and growing and breeding lesser spiders, she doesn´t care for Sauron´s schemes too much.

    Agreed. It's so tempting but should be avoided.

    For Balrog weapons, maybe they can make their flames into axes, swords, knives, clubs, but not complex objects like bows? Kind of like the T-1000?

    Could someone please jog my memory: have any Balrogs been destroyed before Season 4?

    About half of them, I think.
