The Return of the King

Saruman has been defeated and now faces the wrath of Gandalf. His armies have been lain to ruin, and his life comes to a bitter end on the steps of Isengard. Knowing that the dark lord will attempt to overthrow the kingdom of Gondor, Gandalf and Pippin journey to warn Denethor that alliances must be reforged. The king is unresponsive, forcing them to send a plea to Aragorn in Edoras for assistance. The heir of Isildur journeys into the dark mountains to call forth an army that no mortal foe can defeat, while Arwen lies near death in Rivendell, having forsaken her last opportunity to journey into the Gray Havens.

Gollum has poisoned Frodo’s mind against his loyal friend, and Sam unhappily abandons him on the threshold of their greatest future foe: Shelob, a great and terrible spider that indwells in the passages of Mordor.
