Nice thinking [In reply to] Can't Post

I believe this has to do with Thorinīs personality, his stubbornness and incapacity to say to himself: " I canīt do this. This is out of my reach." I think the fallen oakenshield reflects how he tries to do more than what they ask of him. The message here would be, IMO, "this is as far as you can go". In one of my viewings,

Gandalfīs words came to my mind during this particular scene. "Your pride will be your downfall." Nothing truer for the character. His oakenshield fell, and thus fell his pride. Unfortunately, he will not learn from this mistake.

Cheers, and welcome to the forum.Smile
