#14—“Many Meetings”

Our first episode of Book Two looks at wrath. The Heads wonder whether anger can be directed towards a good end, or if it is inevitably a tool of the Shadow.

We also look into Bilbo’s notion of life as a story and history as a confluence of many personal stories. The story of Frodo as the Ringbearer began where Bilbo’s ended. Will Frodo’s quest find its end at Rivendell?

  1. Wow, Chris, your version of the song is amazing! If you ever decided to sing the whole song, you would have at least one person listening ❤
    You know, I am wondering whether Bilbo at the time of his adventure thought it was relatively light. He was a lot less prepared, mentally, without an uncle telling stories about the world beyond the Shire, but also given the time he had to "plan" this. Now he seems to have a nearly flippant attitude, but while he was experiencing it? Obviously, not the whole continent is at stake, but from Bilbo's starting point facing a dragon with 13 dwarves also seems pretty tough… From our perspective it is definitely less dark, but for him at the time I am not so sure…
