Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

[Aragorn is floating in the river and washes ashore.]

[Arwen is lying on her bed in Rivendell.]

[Dreaming, Arwen kisses Aragorn on his lips.]

Arwen: "May the grace of the Valar protect you."

[Brego arrives and nudges Aragorn until he awakes. The horse kneels down and Aragorn slowly gets on its back and rides away.]

[In Rivendell, Arwen lies on her bed. Elrond enters the room.]

Elrond: "Arwen. Tollen i lû. I chair gwannar na Valannor. Si bado, no círar." (Arwen. It is time. The ships are leaving for Valinor. Go now, before it is too late.)

Arwen: "I've made my choice."

Elrond: "He is not coming back. Why do you linger when there is no hope?"

Arwen: "There is still hope."

Elrond: "If Aragorn survives this war, You will still be parted."

Elrond: "If Sauron is defeated, and Aragorn made king and all that you hoped for comes true… you will still have to taste the bitterness of mortality."

[Arwen's face changes and we see Aragorn lying dead, Arwen standing next to him, crying.]

Elrond: "Whether by the sword or the slow decay of time, Aragorn will die. And there will be no comfort for you. No comfort to ease the pain of his passing."

Elrond: "He will come to death. An image of the splendor of the kings of men in glory, undimmed before the breaking of the world."

Elrond: "But you, my daughter, you will linger on in darkness and in doubt. As night falling winter has come without a star."

[Arwen is walking alone in empty woods, dressed in black.]

Elrond: "Here you will dwell, bound to you grief, under the fading trees, until all the world has changed and the long years of your life are utterly spent."

[The scene comes back to Rivendell and we see Arwen's face. Tears fall from her eyes and she gasps.]

Elrond: "Arwen… there is nothing for you here, only death."

[Elrond sits next to his daughter and holds her in his arms.]

Elrond: "Ah im, ú erin veleth lîn?" (Do I not also have your love?)

Arwen: "Gerich veleth nîn, ada." (You have my love, father.)

[A group of Elves, including Arwen, sets off from Rivendell.]

[Elrond stands and watches, as Arwen looks at him one last time before leaving.]

Galadriel: "I amar prestar aen. Han mathon ne nen, han mathon ne chae a han noston ned wilith." (The world is changed. I can feel it in the water, I can feel it in the earth, I can smell it in the air.)

Galadriel: "The power of the enemy is growing. Sauron will use his puppet Saruman to destroy the people of Rohan."

[The Uruk-hai army marches.]

Galadriel: "Isengard has been unleashed."

Galadriel: "The Eye of Sauron now turns to Gondor. The last free kingdom of men."

[The of the Eye of Sauron watches. Frodo and Sam are lead to Henneth Annûn.]

Galadriel: "His war on this country will come swiftly. He senses the Ring is close. The strength of the Ringbearer is failing. In his heart, Frodo begins to understand. The quest will claim his life."

Galadriel: "You know this. You have foreseen it. It is the risk we all took."

Galadriel: "In the gathering dark, the will of the Ring grows strong. It works hard now to find its way back into the hands of men. Men, who are so easily seduced by its power."

[The One Ring flies through the air.]

Galadriel: "The young captain of Gondor has but to extend his hand to take the Ring for his own and the world will fall. He is close now, so close to achieving his goal."

Galadriel: "For Sauron will have dominion over all life on this Earth, even until the ending of the world."

Galadriel: "The time of the elves is over. Do we leave Middle-Earth to this fate? Do we let them stand alone?"
