Glad you were able to join us for the end of the Twitch stream, Odola! Sorry these things do not happen at a European friendly time . They often run that late, though.
That is a fair complaint about Beren. He's not at his best in this episode, being nearly out of his mind for parts of it. I will point out, though, that he doesn't exactly become a war leader, statesman, or politician, so maybe it's okay if he's not cut out for that? He's a fighter and a lover, so brave and bold, but not necessarily a leader. He will coordinate the attack on the Dwarves someday, but that is the closest he will get to that role. And that fight is again a revenge ambush!Alltogether I do find that outline quite interesting and exciting - even if Beren comes out somehow lacking in stategic thought and generally irrational in his complete lack of planning - generally he appears as unfit to be a war leader, stateman and politician.
