Summon the legions! Things are on the move after last week’s foundational episode of The Rings of Power, with the Southlands preparing for an orc assault and a mass Middle-earth convergence underway. Behold everything we know about The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power Episode 6, from release time to plot and more. But before we dissect the details…

What happened in The Rings of Power Episode 5?

At the old watchtower, Bronwyn rallies the Southlanders to defend themselves and not bend the knee to Adar’s army, but there are many who’d rather surrender than fight. Theo shows Sauron’s broken hilt to Arondir, who recognizes it as a key to enslave Middle-earth from the enemy’s commander that was engraved on the watchtower wall.

Nori and The Stranger work on their communication skills as the Harfoot migration passes the Grey Marshes and over The Braids towards their destination. But there’s a pack of hungry wargs on the hunt that The Stranger vanquishes with a cool telekinetic shockwave.

Actor Bridie Sisson made her appearance as The Dweller, one of three mysterious white-robed priestesses drawn to the site of The Stranger’s meteoric fall with her similarly-garbed companions. Could this be a disguised Sauron or more misdirection?

At Lindon, Elrond’s oath to Prince Durin to keep the Mithril discovery a secret weighs heavy. In a bit of rewritten Mithril mythology, King Gil-galad recounts the legend of the ore that contains the Light of the Lost Silmaril and its importance for the continued existence of the Elven race.

And with Halbrand accepting his heroic role by Queen Regent Miriel’s side with Númenór’s expeditionary force to Middle-earth, it’s hopefully time to kick things into a higher gear. Clear the lines and square the sails and let’s see what this week’s pivotal episode offers up!
