Middle-earth Conspiracy Theories Can't Post

So why did Glorfindel leave Mandos's halls to return to Middle-earth?

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

He told the Balrog, "I'll be back." [In reply to] Can't Post

He was true to his word. However, the Balrog was no Terminator and could not equal the feat. Therefore, Glorfindel settled for terrorizing the Witch-king and being ignored by future movie-makers.

"I had forgotten that. It is hard to be sure of anything among so many marvels. The world is all grown strange. Elf and Dwarf in company walk in our daily fields; and folk speak with the Lady of the Wood and yet live; and the Sword comes back to war that was broken in the long ages ere the fathers of our fathers rode into the Mark! How shall a man judge what to do in such times?"

"As he ever has judged. Good and ill have not changed since yesteryear; nor are they one thing among Elves and Dwarves and another among Men. It is a man's part to discern them, as much in the Golden Wood as in his own house."

He thought he'd try to follow his dream of movie stardom. [In reply to] Can't Post

I posted this without reading the above posts. Now I see mine is a bit too similar to some before me. I'll try again with something new/different.

He wanted to wield his sword again, to see how well he might still fit into his silvery battle armor... [In reply to] Can't Post

...and to see how that might look on the big screen. Preferably in IMAX.
