I agree in part. I think they went a tad far in making him seem [In reply to] Can't Post

like a disregarded blowhard. That said, there is at least more precedence for this than there was for the lop sided interactions between Gandalf and Galadriel. Galadriel had grown wary of Saruman, Saruman did sometimes run on in condecension (though at this stage he was still masking his scorn for Radagast, so they may have overplayed that), and Gandalf could be very impertinent. Indeed, in at least one council meeting he does the magical equivalent of blowing smoke in Saruman's face.

In Reply To
care for the way Saruman was portrayed as a grump, and was talked over in secret by Galadriel and Gandalf. I doubt they would ever have done that, and Saruman was pretty powerful surely he would have known? His voice alone could influence men and Elves. It seemed out of character for Gandalf to roll his eyes at Saruman too, in FOTR Gandalf was full of respect for Saruman.


"Hear me, hounds of Sauron, Gandalf is here! Fly if you value your foul skins, I will shrivel you from tail to snout if you step within this circle!"

"Do not be to eager to deal out death in judgement. Even the very wise cannot see all ends."

        Elrond's comment directly implies Gandalf is answerable to who they are about to meet, and that happens to be Galadriel. ElendilTheShort Send a private message to ElendilTheShort Mar 21 2013, 9:52am
