So beautiful [In reply to] Can't Post

I think this shot is so sad and beautiful. To me, it seems like very early dawn - that time of the night that is so cold, and many sick or injured people seem to die at this time. The candle is burning low, showing that she's been there all night and that maybe her own fire is burning low, too.

The fact that he's in such a cold, dark room makes me wonder whether Grima or his henchmen had anything to do with where he was put when he was brought back to Edoras, or was it just the most convenient?

I think Eowyn's dress here shows her goodness and pureness/loyalty to Rohan, and the fact that it is elegant, fine, well-fitted, with the belt matching her pale golden hair, it is perfectly contrasted to Grima's outfit in the next scene - his bulky, grimy looking black furs. That also shows that she feels at home and in her element in the cold, sparse environment of the Golden Hall, where Wormtongue wants to shield himself from the cold, and from the environment itself.

The faded tapestry tells me that this is a place that was once full of splendor and warmth, but has fallen onto harder times.
