The Ring of Barahir is the twenty-fifth scene of The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (extended edition). This scene was not featured in the theatrical release of The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Grima arrives at Isengard, now a place of pits and forges rather than trees and greenery. In Orthanc, Saruman is irate with the new status of Gandalf the White. Grima tells him of an elf, a dwarf, and a man following Gandalf. Saruman questions if the man was from Gondor. In response, Grima tells him that he was from the north and described a strange ring he wore. From the description, Saruman deduces this to be the Ring of Barahir, and that therefore Gandalf thinks he has found the lost king of Gondor in this man. However this does not affect Saruman's plans, and he decides to continue with his attack on Rohan.
