Adrenaline [In reply to] Can't Post

I think it's a bit out of character too, but I chalk this one up to adrenaline. Flight is not possible, so the fight aspect of the hormone takes over. Frodo's reaction is primal, not calculated.

When Old Man Willow was eating his friends and couldn't be persuaded not to by fire, Frodo resorted to flight, running around in the middle of nowhere calling for help. Both times he was being instinctive rather than rational.
