Aragorn's "Death" Scene Can't Post

Those of you who are familiar with my posts may or may not know that while I am highly complimentary of PJ's film trilogy, there is one scene that makes me cringe at the very mention of it. I'm referring to the scene in 'The Two Towers' in which Aragorn is dragged over a cliff-face by Sharku's Warg, and is thought dead by his companions.

Does anyone have an idea as to the purpose of this scene? I am in need of enlightenment. From what I can see it is unwanted, not accurate to Tolkien-lore and totally unnecessary. The only reason that I can think to include it is to show how vulnerable the people of Rohan are without Aragorn's leadership, as Theoden is not the king he once was and Gandalf has left them to find Eomer.

What are your thoughts about this scene?

"What do you mean, good morning? Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not, or that you feel good this morning, or that it is a morning to be good on?"-Gandalf the Grey, The Hobbit.
