Arwen being at Helm's Deep was a big one. [In reply to] Can't Post

There was a report of a 'female scream' from the Helm's Deep set, which led to rabid speculation (and angst) that Arwen would be at Helm's Deep. Of course she wasn't, but it wasn't until the TT EE came out that it was revealed in the extras that not only was the original plan for her to be there, but that some footage of her had been shot. (These were the XenArwen (Xena-Arwen) discussions.)

Would Gandalf be killed at Isengard? This was prompted by a photo of a miniature of what appeared to be Gandalf (because the figure was wearing grey) impaled on a large, spikey wheel. It was on TORN only briefly before Weta asked for the photo to be removed. (However here it is in TORN's scrapbook: http://scrapbook.theonering.net/scrapbook/large/526.)

I think the most heated and long arguments came with the revelation, just a month or two out from TTT being released in theatres, that Faramir would take the Ring and the Hobbits to Gondor. Impressively, those weeks of outraged discussion went by with nary a spoiler in the subject lines.

I think a significant discussion leading to ROTK was about how that film would be able to cover everything that was left in the book, given that TTT stopped before Shelob or the Saruman confrontation at Isengard.

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

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís 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.
