Heard the news everyone's talking about? New series, new era.
Why is the Scouring of the Shire, which fills the penultimate chapter of The Return of the King, important? What does this self-contained hobbit conflict have to do with the greater quest to destroy the Ring, and was it really a poor choice for Jackson to leave this episode out? You’re in luck. I happen to have a lot of words to say on this subject.
