Wondering about the Arwen/Elrond scenes in ROTK

Wondering about the Arwen/Elrond scenes in ROTK Can't Post

Did PJ explain how the scenes with Arwen and Elrond came together in ROTK? It seems choppy, as if some of it was shot for the earlier movies and stitched in with reshoots. Or scenes are missing?

Timeline-wise it feels like it takes place during Two Towers (which would give Elrond more time to reforge the sword then ride thousands of miles south). The shot of Elrond watching the sword get reforged looks like it follows right from his mind-chat with Galadriel.

Wasn't Arwen's vision of Eldarion, [In reply to] Can't Post

then Arwen facing off with Elrond, originally meant to be in TTT? Or am I mis-remembering?

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.

That [In reply to] Can't Post

and the first half of the Elrond / Arwen scene, I think, was supposed to be in TTT. The second part of the scene (Arwen's costume changes) seems to be a completely different scene inserted. We see part of what I assume is the original scene ending with Arwen on a bridge in the ROTK trailer with a line from Elrond: "You gave away your life's grace; I cannot protect you anymore."

I can't make heads or tails of how much of this was originally intended to be in TTT, but that seems designed as a cliffhangery line.

Of course, these were all reshoots, as Arwen somehow made it to Helm's Deep by the events of the "original" 3-film script.
