"that road there, where does it lead"?

"that road there, where does it lead"? Can't Post

Sorry, two posts in one day but re-watching the movies after a few years and new things jumping out.

Why did Legolas answer Gimli's question about the Dimholt road, and not Eomer who was standing right there? I know he's been around for a few hundred years and maybe heard the story in Mirkwood, but wouldn't Eomer know more about it?

Because they needed Legolas to say something that wasn't obvious just once? // [In reply to] Can't Post

Ha. Never thought of that. [In reply to] Can't Post

Even riding up the hill, would have made more sense for Aragorn to explain the Dead backstory.

Eomer doubtless fears that speaking of it will attract the attention of the Dead which could lead to unfortunate consequences.

Whereas Elves don't fear the dead so Legolas just blabs away.

I'm sure Eomer wants to slap him.

“Did you say 'You Shall Not Pass' or 'You Shall Not Sass'?" asked the Balrog.

"I said 'You Shall Not Pass,'” replied Gandalf; "and I wish you wouldn't keep appearing and vanishing so suddenly: you make one quite giddy."

"All right," said the Balrog; and this time it vanished quite slowly, beginning with the end of its wings, and ending with its shadow, which remained some time after the rest of it had gone.

'Well! I've often seen wings without a Balrog,' thought Gandalf; `but a Balrog without wings! It's the most curious thing I ever saw in my life!’
