Frodo and Sam capture Gollum and have him take them to Mordor. They are captured by Faramir, but he lets them go. Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli go to Fangorn Forest in pursuit of Merry and Pippin and find Gandalf, who has been reborn. At the Battle of Helm's Deep, all looks lost until Gandalf and the Riders of Rohan charge from nowhere into the Uruk-hai and kill them. Merry and Pippin are taken care of by Treebeard the Ent. The Ents decide to attack Saruman for killing trees. They wash away all his work and renders him helpless. Arwen decides there is no reason for her to stay in Middle-earth, so she begins to leave.
Continuity mistake: Gimli is lying with his face under the water, after jumping off the Deeping Wall and landing on the Uruk-hai. In the close-up, the right arm that grabs Gimli's shoulder to help him out of the water is Legolas' right arm. Yet, in the wide shot, suddenly it is Aragorn helping Gimli to his feet, not Legolas.

Question: Maybe I missed something, but why didn't Gandalf notice that Sam was not there? He acts surprised when Aragorn says that Frodo didn't go to Mordor alone, Sam went with him. Yet, he has already seen Merry and Pippin, and Legolas, Gimli and Aragorn are with him, and he knows that Frodo went on alone, so where does he think Sam is? Please excuse me if I missed something.
