The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power Episode 6: Adar and his Orc army bring war

Armed with a massive orc army, the mighty Adar (Joseph Mawle) brings war to the Southlands in the sixth episode of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power.

The last episode ended with Númenor setting sail for Middle-earth, after Galadriel (Morfydd Clark) convinced Queen Regent Miriel (Cynthia Addai-Robinson) to come to the aid of the Southlands.

The men and women of the Southlands will need all the help they can get, as Adar and his orcs waste everything in their path.

The episode begins with Adar saying, ‘New life, in defiance of death’ in the Quenya language.

Adar rises to his feet to find hordes of his Orcs bearing torches, ready to march into the night for their leader.

‘My children. We have endured a lot. We cast off our shackles, we crossed mountains, fields, frost and fallow land, “until our feet bloodied the ground,” he tells the masses of orcs.

We have endured from Ered Mithrin to Ephel Arnen. However, one more test awaits us tonight. Our enemy may be weak, his number few, but before tonight is over, some of us will fall,” says Adar, as we watch Waldreg (Geoff Morrell), who in the last episode swore allegiance to Adar.

‘But for the first time, you do not do it as nameless slaves in distant lands, but as brothers. Like brothers and sisters in our home!’ he tells him as the orcs begin to sing, ‘Nampat’.

“This is the night that we extend the iron hand of the Uruk and close our fist around these lands,” adds Adar, as they continue to sing Nampat.

The episode cuts to Adar and his army approaching the watchtower… but when he opens the gate he is surprised to find it deserted.

Adar tells one of his subordinates to search the place and find them… when we see Arondir (Ismael Cruz Cordova) hiding in the walls above them.

As the orcs continue their search, Adar finds the wall that Arondir discovered, when Waldreg approaches him.

“No offense, sir father, but where is he?” What happened to Sauron? Waldreg asks, as one of the orcs says there is no trace of him and assumes he must have gotten smart and scared.

Adar insists that the elf is here, saying in the orc language that he ‘smells’ it when another orc says ‘Up here’ as Arondir begins his attack.

He takes out some orcs with his bow and arrow, before shooting a flaming arrow at a precise pulley, causing the entire watchtower to collapse.

He moves quickly and blocks them all as the tower continues to collapse, crushing the orcs one by one.

Waldreg says that Adar must move now as Adar grabs him as the tower collapses.

We see the tower collapse from a distance, as we hear all the humans cheer, though some wonder how many could have survived that.

Bronwyn (Nazanin Boniadi) tells everyone to follow her as they have to prepare the village while everyone rushes.

The show made history long before the first two episodes debuted on Thursday night, as it is considered the most expensive series ever.

The show’s inception dates back to July 2017, when a grueling lawsuit between Warner Bros., the studio behind The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit movies, and the JRR Tolkien Estate was settled.

Both the studio and the estate began offering the television rights to the franchise to streaming services, with Amazon quickly becoming a favorite.

Amazon co-founder Jeff Bezos previously gave streaming service Prime Video a mandate that he wanted a full-scale franchise.

Bezos was also reportedly a huge fan of the franchise and was personally involved in negotiations just for the rights, which were eventually acquired in November 2017 for a whopping $250 million.

Amazon also struck a deal with the Tolkien Estate and the Tolkien Trust where they are believed to have greenlit more than five seasons of the show.

With an estimated production commitment of between $100 million and $150 million per season, Amazon is expected to shell out $1 billion for production costs and rights, when all is said and done.

The series was created by Patrick McKay and JD Payne, who had previously only worked on 2016’s Star Trek: Beyond as uncredited writers.

The duo launched a series that would be set in the Second Age of Middle-earth, a story glossed over in a five-minute prologue during the Lord of the Rings movies.

They wanted to expand this to roughly 50 hours of television, which would include the forging of the Rings of Power, the rise of the dark lord Sauron, the fall of the island kingdom of Númenor, and the final alliance between men and elves.

However, there will be characters that fans will recognize, most notably Galadriel, played in the LOTR movies by Cate Blanchett, with the much younger version played by Morfydd Clark.

There have been rumors that a white-haired character shown in the trailers, played by Bridie Sisson (previously thought to be Anson Boon), is actually Sauron himself, although this has not been confirmed by the producers.

Executive producer Lindsey Weber would neither confirm nor deny Sisson’s character, but did offer a hint about his origins to Time.

“We’re enjoying all the speculation online and we can tell you that Bridie Sisson is an amazing actress,” Weber began.

“We also thought that the fans would like to know that his character is traveling from the far east, from the lands of Rhûn…” Weber joked.
