SummaryAdd a Summary
In the second part of Lord of the Rings, Aragorn, Gimli and Legolas arrive at Rohan in the midst of their search for missing Merry and Pippin and meet an old friend. Meanwhile, the two hobbits find themselves kidnapped by the Uruk-hai to be taken to Saruman, but escape into the feared Fangorn Forest, where they meet an unlikely friend. Frodo and Sam continue their quest to destroy the Ring, but meeting an enemy along the way (who proves quite helpful) may not have been a chance.
