Aragorn, revealed as the hidden heir of the Kings of the West, joined with the Riders of Rohan against the forces of Isengard, and took part in the desperate victory of the Hornburg. Merry and Pippin, captured by Orcs, escaped into Fangorn Forest and there encountered the Ents. Gandalf returned, miraculously, and defeated the evil wizard, Saruman.
Meanwhile Sam and Frodo progressed towards Mordor to destroy the Ring, accompanied by Smeagol
