A Thought on Tauriel

A Thought on Tauriel Can't Post

Hi, all!

I was thinking about The Hobbit today, and if memory serves I do believe that Bilbo is able to free the Dwarves from Thranduil's Hall because Galion the Butler and the Captain of the Guards get drunk and pass out like any rational Elf would do. I also thought... wasn't Tauriel announced to be the Captain of the Guards in Mirkwood?

Does this mean that we may see Tauriel get drunk with the butler and pass out? It would certainly be a different side to female Elves as seen in the rest of the series...

Unlikely [In reply to] Can't Post

While not impossible, everything I've been able to piece together about Tauriel's story arc would suggest that she does not get drunk with Galion and pass out. She appears to be far too serious and responsible in her role as head of Thranduil's bodyguards. Also we know she reports the Dwarves' escape (one of her lines is "The cells are empty!"), which would suggest that she discovers that the Dwarves have somehow escaped. Galion may get drunk by himself or there may be another elf, perhaps a gaoler with the keys to the dungeon cells, who drinks with him.

Don't mess with my favorite female elf.

Personally [In reply to] Can't Post

I have the impression that the whole events will play out very differently to the canon, with orcs in Mirkwood and everything.

I think the Lady might get the Butler drunk and help the Dwarves escape. After all there is the Hot Dwarf factor and all that.
