Since his much-anticipated intro, a character like Adar (Joseph Mawle) has benefited from the built-in mysticism surrounding his place in the canon. Is he Sauron in disguise? Or another puzzling character pulled from deep in the lore? Or perhaps a whole new villain? What’s interesting, however, is that speculation is possible, all of which pales in comparison to the simple fact of whether or not the character is compelling to watch. After all, it’s terrible how a writer’s room goes too far in one way or another in balancing maintaining a sense of mystery with an uncomfortable viewer by holding back too much and for too long.
Well, this latest episode – written by Nicholas Adams, Justin Doble, Payne and McKay – picks up on a significant delay with some of the show’s biggest characters revealed so far in the story. . Almost in response to this complaint, “Udûn” opens up to Adar planting seeds on the eve of the battle set in last week’s episode.
“New life. In spite of death,” he muttered flashily to no one in particular, further hinting at his dark origins and disturbing his new role as the “father” of the species. Orcs. But any further testing will have to wait. There’s a battle to fight and win, though he at least takes the time to start a rallying speech with his minions that could easily be mistaken for the hero that Arondir and Bronwyn later used to stir up their people. To welcome freedom from slavery, a new homeland, and a chance to correct some serious (perceived) mistakes, Adar sees the coming massacre of the people of the South as a cause worth sacrificing. .
As far as the villain’s plans and motives go, we only know that it somehow involved the Orcs’ excavation at that labor camp, a plan to block the sun for the Orcs that were destroyed. his burn and looking for a new home. Yet, despite being kept in the dark, “The Rings of Power” still places us right in the enemy universe unlike no other Middle-earth story we’ve experienced before.
