The conclusion of Rings of Power season 1 provides resolutions. Sauron, who is he? Who dropped to the ground? The Rings will manifest when? It’s time for Sauron, the ominous force of evil, to manifest himself now that Mordor has been created upon the smoking remains of the Southlands. At least, that is what is anticipated for the genuinely epic fantasy prequel’s Season 1 finale. For a detailed explanation of everything that happened in The Rings Of Power Season 1 Episode, 8 Recap continue reading at tvacute.com.
The Rings Of Power Season 1 Episode 8 Recap
Here is how the action unfolds in Amazon’s LOTR: The Rings of Power season 1 finale, which contains more talking points than a Dwarven history book does Durins. Previously in The Rings of Power, the Stranger was being followed by both his Harfoot comrades and a group of enigmatic mystics as he made his way toward Greenwood the Great. While the Elves were considering how to avoid perishing without access to Moria’s mithril reserves, Galadriel was traveling in their direction with a sick Halbrand who had been severely hurt by Mount Doom’s eruption. While the Southlands were being transformed into Mordor, Queen Regent Mriel’s Nmenórean army suffered heavy losses and returned home with its tail between its legs. Where is Sauron? was purposefully the central enigma of The Rings of Power’s first season. Despite primarily concentrating on a villain who can compete with Waldo and Carmen Sandiego, episode 8 of The Rings of Power covers a wide range of topics. A monarch takes his last breath, an important event in J.R.R. Tolkien’s mythology occurs, and a wizard shows up exactly when he plans to. The fate of an entire race is on the line.
The Rings Of Power Season 1 Episode 8 Recap: Who is Sauron?
The Rings of Power finally proves what many already knew when Charlie Vickers‘ character first revealed himself: Halbrand is Sauron, thanks to a cunning fake-out involving the Stranger. Following his successful recovery from Adar’s attempted murder, Sauron has assumed a human appearance, necessitating a critical examination of his whole season one of The Rings of Power arc. Sauron seems to have used events to his advantage throughout the season, bearing the insignia of the Southlands and pretending to be hurt that could only be fixed by elven hands. His main objective was to get to Celebrimbor in Eregion and start the forging of Middle-Rings earths of Power.

In The Rings of Power, Sauron waxes poetic about how he longs to mend the wounds Morgoth inflicted and seems to think of himself as the good guy. Galadriel realises right away that Sauron is only concerned with Middle-restoration earth’s if he ultimately succeeds in establishing his rule. Although Sauron bakes a lasagna of lies throughout The Rings of Power season 1, his interest in Galadriel seems curiously sincere as the villain even offers his companion a spot by his shadowed side if his schemes are accomplished.
Gandalf Is (Probably) The Stranger Rings of Power’s “The Grey Moth”
Despite the fact that Daniel Weyman’s Stranger is originally mistaken for Sauron, this proves to be a very bad instance of Maiar identity confusion. The Dweller learns that her “Sauron” opponent is actually an Istar, or magician. The Istari are Maiar spirits, like Sauron, but they have taken on human form and have been sent by the Valar to battle evil rather than create it. Similarly to Sauron, the Istari come in Middle-earth with limited abilities and hazy memories. Only five Istari are ever mentioned by Tolkien, and they all emerge in the Third Age rather than the Second. This group includes Radagast, Saruman, Gandalf, and the two rarely-seen blue wizards.
The Rings of Power strongly imply that Gandalf is their Stranger. The honorary Harfoot tells Nori, “Follow your nose,” exactly the same counsel Gandalf gives to Merry in The Lord of the Rings in the last minutes of the season 1 finale as his memories begin to slowly come back. The Dweller, Nomad, and Ascetic are transformed into moths during their battle by the Stranger as an added hint, evoking the insects Gandalf communicates within The Lord of the Rings.

The Rings of Power Season 1 Recap: What happened to Numenor?
In the finale of The Rings of Power season 1, Nmenor’s terrible news keeps coming. The wicked Pharazôn starts making preparations as the King’s passing approaches, but his scene holds one not-so-subtle sign of things to come. Pharazôn makes reference to immortality in a speech on life and death, saying that “no man, not even a king, may acquire” it. This phrase, along with the almost hungry expression on his face as he says it, perfectly prefigures the Chancellor’s goals in The Rings of Power. The first thing Pharazôn wants to do is rule Nmenor after Tar-death. Palantir’s Second, the terrible guy with the beard wants immortality, which Valinor alone can grant.
Mriel (Cynthia Addai) tries to come up with a plan to conceal her recent blindness from the people of Nmenor as this is going on. The Queen obviously thinks that people’s perceptions of her blindness will be one of two things: either a scathing indictment of the mission to Middle-failure earth’s or a snide indication of “weakness” from her ignorant followers. No matter how much she trains, Mriel won’t be able to fool Pharazôn, who will undoubtedly find a method to take advantage of her blindness for himself.
Elendil (Lloyd Owen), who in the season 1 finale of The Rings of Power eventually acknowledges his affiliation with the Faithful, is at least Mriel’s friend. Elendil, who had previously refuted the charge, now admits he is friends with the Elves and desires for Nmenor to revert to its former ways despite the loss of his son. The Rings of Power’s season 1 conclusion does not address Isildur’s fate after his absence in Mordor, but viewers will understand that he is alive because of The Lord of the Rings.
Only three Rings of Power—the three Elven Rings Galadriel, Elrond, and Gandalf wear throughout The Lord of the Rings, which Tolkien explicitly states Sauron was not personally involved in creating have been fashioned by the time the credits begin to roll. The seven Rings for Dwarves and the nine Rings for Men are all that are left. These final sixteen Rings of Power not only play a crucial role in Sauron’s master plot, but they also bear the brunt of his evil influence. In The Rings of Power season 2, Halbrand could possibly return to Eregion in a new identity, perhaps as his canon “fair” form, Annatar.
