My thoughts on the Rings of Power FWIW

I put together some of my thoughts about the Rings of Power Season Finale, but now I’m thinking about doing a short series where I fix the problems in season one in a what if treatment. I’m not a script writer but I write epic fantasy books for fun set in a world that’s like the Fourth Age in Middle Earth. But in my books, magic is coming back with a vengeance. So I know something about plotting character and story arcs.

Here are my full thoughts for those interested:

Show Notes:

In this short episode, I give my thoughts and impressions of the season finale of Rings of Power. What I liked. What I didn’t like, and a few scenes that left me confused. 

Next week, I will return with more of Curse Breaker Enchanted. I just needed to get this off my chest. And no, I could not have written a better screenplay. That’s a skill I don’t have, but if this was a book, I would have done it differently.

Would it have been better?

I don’t know. If I ever find a way to do something like this in my fantasy world, we’ll see. But I don’t know if I could based on the rules and Sarn’s existence. I’ll talk more about that in upcoming episodes and less about Rings of Power until I can look at it objectively.
