The Rings of Power Episode 4 Release Date, Time and Plot Preview

**Warning – Spoilers ahead for The Rings of Power**

The Rings of Power Episode 3 hit the ground running with character development this week after the introductory double-bill, and before you get withdrawal symptoms, we provide a preview of Episode 4.

A number of new characters were introduced this week, including Elendil, Isildur, and new villain Adar, while showing the Harfoots’ migration and Galadriel and Halbrand’s arrival in Númenor.

Developed by J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay for Amazon Prime and based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s novel, The Lord of the Rings, The Rings of Power will be set thousands of years before The Hobbit and its successor, starring Robert Aramayo, Morfydd Clark, Owain Arthur, Maxim Baldry, and many more.

Episode 4 Plot Preview

Episode 3 ended on a major cliffhanger when the Orc captors introduced Arondir to Adar, whose face remained blurred until next week.

We will likely find out the identity of Adar and what his ranking is beside Sauron, while Arondir hopefully tries to make a second escape.

Episode 4 will also see Bronwyn and Theo complete their travel while the young boy grabbles with the broken dagger in his possession.

Furthermore, focus will shift back to the Dwarves as well as Elrond and Celebrimbor’s “project” and Galadriel and Halbrand’s union to take back the Southlands will also develop.
