A thought about 'Gandalf addresses White Council' video

A thought about 'Gandalf addresses White Council' video Can't Post

I looked (briefly if I'm honest!) for a thread on the 'Gandalf addresses the White Council' video, but didn't find one. I also tried adding a comment on the video page on this site, but it wanted an email address to allow me to continue (I'm always reluctant to type ever more email addresses into web sites--especially as I'd hoped my forum login would be sufficient for commenting elsewhere on TORN).


I think Gandalf is saying: "Orcs have attacked us on the road." I wonder if the 'us' he's referring to are Thorin and Company. Is this White Council scene after their passage of the Misty Mountains, and Gandalf is speaking of trolls and orcs from recent personal experience?

Have you watched any other clips?

There is one where the company is attacked by 2 Wargs at Trollshaws. Warg scouts have tracked them, and this then leads into the infamous scene 88.

So yes, it is in reference to the company. PJ and co. have added this before Rivendell.

There's a scene in the movie with orcs and wargs that attack them before they reach Rivendell.

Yeah (spoilers) [In reply to] Can't Post

I heard "on the road" too :)
They were attacked by two wargs and then saying "orcs are not far behind" or something like that!
