How will this line of dialogue from FOTR now fit in? ***spoilers!!*** Can't Post

In FOTR when Gandalf and Elrond are in Rivendell discussing what do about the Ring, Elrond says:


"This peril belongs to all middle earth. They must decide now how to end it. The time of the Elves is over - my people are leaving these shores. Who will you look to when we've gone? The Dwarves? They hide in their mountains seeking riches - they care nothing for the troubles of others.


The last few lines about the dwarves originally helped in introducing the dwarves overall and setting up the issues between Legolas and Gimli, however TH prequel(s) might put a whole new slant on it. On the one hand,
new viewers who are watching the 6 films in order will have just spent 3 movies becoming very attached to the Dwarves and appreciative of their history and civilization, and in particular are going to still be really hurting over the loss of Thorin, Fili and Kili, and so these words might seem seem harsh and one-sided. On the other hand, given the events of the BOFA, and depending on the ways in which the film makers choose to depict those events, these comments might instead be given more meaning and justification.

Any thoughts,comments - or as Roheryn would say, funny noises Wink?

        Yes, from the Elves' perspective Loresilme Send a private message to Loresilme Jan 20 2013, 10:07pm

    But Thorin couldn't even get help for his quest from other dwarves. Silverlode Send a private message to Silverlode Jan 20 2013, 11:26pm
        So is Thorin's perspective possibly not valid then? Loresilme Send a private message to Loresilme Jan 21 2013, 12:24am
            Well, frankly, fighting a dragon is a suicide mission. Silverlode Send a private message to Silverlode Jan 21 2013, 2:34am
