Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Aragorn lies listening to the ground. He tells Legolas and Gimli that the pace of the Uruk-hai who captured Merry and Pippin has increased, and that they should hurry. The three hunters carry on following the tracks of the Uruk-hai until Aragorn sees an elven brooch on the ground.

Not idly do the leaves of Lórien fall.

They realise they are catching up with the Uruk-hai and continue on, with Gimli struggling in the chase. Upon climbing to the top of a hill, they look out over the plains of Rohan. Aragorn senses something strange and asks Legolas what he can see. The elf replies "The Uruks turn northeast. They're taking the Hobbits to Isengard!"
