Not nothingness. It "went withersoever it was doomed to go, and never returned to Middle-Earth," [In reply to] Can't Post

There is a sad aspect to it though. He forsook his last chance when he met Gandalf and Galadriel on the road. He might have gone sued for pardon, as Sauron himelf once had the opportunity to do. Yet his pride forbade it. Unsure

I always loved the way Tolkien described Saruman's spirit rising and leaning to the west, only to have a wind come out of the west and dissipate his spirit. It showed that Saruman, at the very last minute, after all the evil he had done, still hoped to return to Valinor, but was disowned and rejected by the Valar, pretty much diminishing this once-mighty spirit to nothingness.

I would say that... [In reply to] Can't Post

the line about her possessing knowledge that the wizards don't could be referring to her "foresight" or use of the Mirror, but as for "enchantments" well, that has me guessing it might be whatever magic she is going to unleash on the walls of Dol Guldur! Unsure

But to ease your mind a little, AO, there is also the statement "Of all the Wise, she is perhaps Gandalf the Grey's strongest supporter and confidante..."

Yep, that was the quote... [In reply to] Can't Post

And I agree that it was sad, and that was what so powerful about it, at least to me.

Yup great in the Wicker Man [In reply to] Can't Post

Although his greatest role for me will always be that of the heroic white magician the Duc di Richleau in the Devil Rides Out.

I didn't like his dialog in AUJ either, but his comments in the Weta Chronicles II Characters book softened my stance on his performance (that and the fact that he's a frail almost 91. Glad he was able to contribute.)

I like him as Saruman (loved him in FoTR) and laughed at the spike death (how very Dracula Hammer PJ ;)), so Saruman's movie death doesn't really bother me.
