Welcome! Catching up is quite the accomplishment at this point. Any thoughts on the Season 6 frame?

Thanks! Perhaps the Lay of Leithian could be used in the frame. Maybe Gilraen is telling Estel the story through the poem, but breaks off at around the same point that the Lay abruptly ends. Elrond would tell Estel the rest of the story. 'it is a long tale of which the end is not known; and there are none now, except Elrond, that rememer it aright as it was told of old' - Aragorn in Lord of the Rings.
Are trolls entwives?

All assumptive though. It’s not a hard no. IF orcs are created from elves (and there in is the mockery) there’s nothing to say the tragedy of the entwives isn’t in death, but perhaps a similar corruption. There’s no evidence for or against in the text. But a lack of evidence doesn’t make it unviable. At the very least, there’s a clear comparison drawn to a possible precedent.

The Entwives were alive and well in the Second Age, living in what became the Brown Lands north of Mordor. That is where their gardens were. Trolls were developed in the First Age in Beleriand.

Ah poo, that is true.

Saw it as a proposed idea online and just fell in love with it for the pathos of it all. Boo to timelines lol
