IMAGE: A BRIGHT LIGHT suddenly flares...Frodo squeezes his
eyes shut, gasping.
Where am I?
A FAMILIAR VOICE cuts through the swirl of sound.
You are in the House of Elrond, and it is
ten o'clock in the morning on October the
twenty-fourth, if you want to know.
INT. FRODO'S BEDROOM -- DAY
Frodo's eyes flicker Open He is lying in bed next to an Open
Window...Dappled sunlight plays on richly carved
timbers...the sound of a nearby waterfall drifts through the
Vista of Fir Trees.
ANGLE ON: GANDALF IS SITTING NEXT TO FRODO'S BED...
softly puffing on his pipe. He smiles at Frodo.
Yes, I'm here and you're lucky to be
here, too. A few more hours and you
would have been beyond our aid. You have
some strength in you, my dear Hobbit.
Frodo sits up, looking at Gandalf questioningly...
What happened, Gandalf? Why didn't you
I'm sorry Frodo.
Close on: Gandalf... troubled. His eyes drift away.
I was delayed.
EXT. ORTHANC SUMMIT -- NIGHT
SARUMAN stands over Gandalf, gloating...
Get up! So much for the power of the
Ring or embrace your own destruction!
With the power of his staff, Saruman raises Gandalf from the
ground, then sends him crashing to the floor.
There is only one Lord of the Ring. Only
one who can bend it to his will...and he
does not share power.
SUDDENLY! GANDALF lurches to his feet and Throws himself off
the Tower! Saruman watches Gandalf fly away from
Isengard...on the Back of a GIANT EAGLE.
So you have chosen death!
EXT. SKIES OVER MOUNTAINS--DAWN
Gwaihir the Eagle soars majestically over the mountains,
carrying Gandalf towards the dawn.
