Gollum escapes them all Can't Post

In The Council of Elrond chapter, Legolas says that Gollum appears to have been rescued by from his Elvish captors by a force of orcs. These, with Gollum, are tracked as far as the elves dare towards Dol Gildur.

Any theories about this?
Whose orcs (Saurons? Sarumans? Independents?) and why are they sent to capture Gollum?
Do you think that Gollum then gives the orcs the slip? Or do they release him, and if so then why?

Disclaimers: The words of noWizardme may stand on their heads! I'm often wrong about things, and its fun to be taught more....
Feel free to meddle in the affairs of noWizardMe by agreeing or disagreeing (politely...) with my posts! I may not be subtle, but at least I'm usually slow to anger...

                    True! Success for any rescue (as opposed to capture or recapture). Fiasco for the elves.// noWizardme Send a private message to noWizardme Mar 3 2013, 5:30pm

            Mirkwood was always the intended prison, it seems FarFromHome Send a private message to FarFromHome Mar 5 2013, 10:19am
