Merry and Pippin try to convince Treebeard and the Ents to help them fight Saruman. The Uruk Hai prepare to destroy Rohan. Meanwhile Elrond tries to convince Arwen to leave Middle Earth for Valinor. Aragorn tries to get Theoden to ride out and face the army but Theoden instead makes them go to the refuge of Helm's Deep and the Hornburg. Eomer, and the Rohirrim are too far away to come to aid them. The elves, sent from Lothlorien with Elrond's convincing, come to the rescue of the Rohan, a few old men/boys against ten thousand Uruk Hai and Orcs. Gandalf rides out to get help. Frodo and Sam continue their journey, and manage to capture Gollum, who agrees to lead them if they spare him. When they get to the black gates he explains he knows a better way. Gollum's old personality Smeagol starts to push through and for a while Gollum/Smeagol is changed by Frodo's kindness to him. They are captured by Faramir, Boromir's brother and son of the king who wants to use the ring to save Gondor. Frodo lures Gollum/Smeagol to him in order to save his life, but Faramir treats Gollum/Smeagol badly and Gollum/Smeagol believes that his 'master' has betrayed him.Gollum is once again dominant. Faramir drags Frodo all the way back to Ithilien, but after seeing proof of what the ring can do to corrupt let's Frodo go. At Helm's Deep the Uruk Hai using gunpowder given to them by Saruman blows the outer wall and breaks down the gate. The Rohan soldiers retreat in further, and finally they are trapped within the inner chambers of the Deep. Gandalf returns with Eomer and the Rohirrim. Treebeard does not want to help Pippin and Merry but when he sees the destruction Saruman has caused he and the Ents destroy Isengard by breaking the dam. Gandalf explains that they won this battle, and now the larger army of Sauron's is going to try and destroy a weakened Gondor. They cannot win but instead must give Frodo enough time to destroy the ring. The sinister Gollum convinces his Smeagol side to lead the hobbits into a trap . . .

Sam: It's like in the great stories Mr. Frodo, the ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were, and sometimes you didn't want to know the end because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end it's only a passing thing this shadow, even darkness must pass. A new day will come, and when the sun shines it'll shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you, that meant something even if you were too small to understand why. But I think Mr. Frodo, I do understand, I know now folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn't. They kept going because they were holding on to something.
Frodo: What are we holding onto, Sam?
Sam: That there's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo, and it's worth fighting for.



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.



John Rhys-Davies is missing the end of his middle finger on his left hand due to a farming accident as a child. The make-up artists made artificial, gelatin fingertips for him to wear in the movies. Davies one day, cut the tip in half, put 'blood' in it and closed it up. He went over to Peter Jackson (unaware of the gelatin tip) and said, "Boss, I've had an accident, look what happened". Jackson saw a small cut, but Davies bent the tip back and it split open, gushing. Nice.
