Season 3 Episode 3 – Beren and Luthien

Doriath

  • Beren watches Luthien for a time, before he reveals himself. He calls her ‘Nightingale’. Luthien flees from him with Daeron, not understanding fear.
  • Beren searches for Luthien again. He hears her singing on a hill. He runs out of the shadows crying ‘Tinuviel’. Luthien does not flee after she sees his fair form.

  • Beren relays his story to Luthien, including the death of his father.
  • Luthien takes him back to her father’s realm, but does not inform Thingol.
  • Luthien leaves every day to see Beren, making Thingol curious.
  • Still suffering from despair, Luthien cradles Beren’s head against her breast, holding his hand. He falls for her. Seeing the love and happiness her actions give to Beren, she falls for him too.

Amon Ereb

  • Caranthir and Amras reach Amon Ereb, where they make deals with Azaghal the dwarf of Belegost.

Angband

  • Sauron reports back to Morgoth, who is pleased. He tasks Sauron to man Minas Tirith while he attacks Hithlum.

Hithlum

  • Fingon has gotten word that Morgoth is planning to attack Hithlum from the north. He rides out to meet them.
  • Vastly outnumbered, he is overrun. Luckily, word had reached Cirdan in the Falas, who sailed his ships north and saves Fingon.
  • Galdor was slain in combat. Hurin defies the orders of Fingon and chases the orcs throughout Anfauglith, slaughtering many.
