1. What were your first impressions on this scene?

It's been awhile since I first saw it, but I think I liked it. It was not familiar to me from the books, but it did its part in developing Eowyn's character in the film.

2. Why do you think they chose to show the camera looking down at Éowyn, rather than from the side as in the previous moment?

I'd never thought about it. But Theoden is (literally) looking down at her in this moment, right? It reflects her feelings that she is not valued and considered less (than the men).

3. When Théoden says ‘You must do this for me’ his tone is final. Éowyn might obey him, but I think her expression tells a different story. What are your thoughts on this?

Yes, I do not think she is happy about this.

4. If you were in Éowyn’s position, determined to fight but told not to, would you do as she did and obey Théoden’s orders out of duty, or would you rush to fight alongside Aragorn?

Yes, in this instance I would. While the assignment she is given is not to her taste, it is an important thing someone has to do, and as a member of the royal family she is a natural choice the people will accept and follow.
