Synopsis[edit | edit source]
After trying to convince Frodo into taking the One Ring to Minas Tirith, Boromir returns to the rest of the Fellowship. After Aragorn asks him where Frodo is, Boromir confesses, and tells him that Frodo put on the Ring. Merry and Pippin run off to find him, with Legolas and Gimli close behind. After a few angry words, Aragorn sends Boromir after the rest, whilst he takes Sam with him.
Sam feels differently. As his legs are not long enough to keep up with a Man, he starts thinking where Frodo might have gone. His guess - Frodo went to the boats - is correct, and after nearly drowning he is drawn aboard by a still invisible Frodo. As the two Hobbits head to the other shore, they are followed by Gollum on his log.
Searching for Frodo, Merry and Pippin are caught by Orcs. Boromir comes in to save them, but as they flee he is pierced by arrows. He manages to stay up by leaning against a tree, and pulls out the arrows. Before he can strike at the Orcs, however, he is hit again. In a last effort, he blows his horn. Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli hear the horn and rush towards to the sound.
With Boromir fallen, the Orcs take the two Hobbits and leave. When Aragorn arrives, he finds only Boromir, who confesses into trying to take the Ring from Frodo, and repents from his deeds. Legolas and Gimli arrive, but Boromir has already died.
