And thus it was. A Fourth Age of Middle-Earth began. And the Fellowship of the Ring though eternally bound by friendship and love… was ended.
And I really hope those four guys would bond because one, it would make the fifteen months go a lot quicker if everybody was friendly and got along, but also for the film I knew that having the hobbit sort of feeling that they really were connecting with something that was important for the movie. – Peter Jackson
‘And here he was, a little halfling from the Shire, a simple hobbit of the quiet countryside, expected to find a way where the great ones could not go, or dared not go. It was an evil fate.’
‘One tiny Hobbit against all the evil the world could muster. A sane being would have given up, but Samwise burned with a magnificent madness, a glowing obsession to surmount every obstacle, to find Frodo, destroy the Ring, and cleanse Middle Earth of its festering malignancy. He knew he would try again. Fail, perhaps. And try once more. A thousand, thousand times if need be, but he would not give up the quest.’
