Pippen's Predicament. [In reply to] Can't Post

1. What do you think of his expression here? His look almost says "Wait! What just happened?" It's shock but also a bit uncomprehending.
We just saw that Pippin felt somewhat responsible or at least in the debt of the steward because Boromir gave his life to save him and Merry, and therefore pledged allegiance to Denethor. Now Pippin sees what kind of man the steward is and is apparently shocked. Any comment? Poor Pippen is between a rock and a hard place. On one hand is Denethor and the other is Gandalf and from his pledge he has made in complete sincerity he's wedged himself in to the cross fire between these two great men.
2. Now Merry and Pippin are separated and it is time to find out whether or not Pippin can really do anything or if he is just for comic relief, a rather defining point for his character don't you think? Well, every story does need some relief of tension and Pippen's antics have been great for that. I've always liked watching Pippen grow up through our the beginning of ROTK.

Additional comments?
Pippen Rocks! (this of course has nothing to do with the scene but it can never be mentioned to much.)
