lots of subtle things going on here... [In reply to] Can't Post

I like how Aragorn's acknowledgment of Theoden as Rohan's King impacts Eomer...and of how Eomer's guard softens further as he picks up on the worry/concern that Aragorn and the others have about the hobbits, resulting in the gift of the horses.

Based on how the films have developed Aragorn to this point, having him announce his kingship would have been way over the top here..and by holding back on that, they were then able to use the whole film to show Aragorn growing into that role.

I did like the Eomer/Aragorn bond in the books, which they really don't develop at all in the films, but I can understand that they felt it was not as essential to the story as some of other relationships. Eomer's loss is the Theoden's gain, and also gets worked into the Legolas/Aragorn bond, and I liked how that played out on screen.
