**Warning – Spoilers ahead for The Rings of Power**
The stakes are being raised in The Rings of Power as dominance in the Southlands grows stronger and we look ahead to the next entry in order to preview Episode 6 and the battle ahead.
Episode 5 put us back with the Harfoots’ migration as the Stranger protected Nori and her family from wolves. Arondir and Bronwyn’s party divided as some joined Sauron’s forces, but Galadriel and Halbrand finally saw eye to eye and departed from Numenor to help the South. Elrond was also stuck between a rock and a hard place as his oath to Durin was challenged by the fate of the Elves.
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 6 Preview
The short preview for Episode 6 supplied by Amazon Prime confirms that Galadriel, Halbrand, and the Numenoreans will undertake their first battle together, presumably against the Orc camp that currently holds the Southlands.
Arondir will also have his hands full trying to convince Bronwyn to stand against the growing evil and not succumb to fealty like she believes her kind is destined to do.
Additionally, Elrond and Durin will arrive back at Khazad-dum, where they will have to persuade the Lord to allow the Elves to mine Mithril for the sake of their survival, but we all know what lurks in the depths of the mines and the Balrog will soon be awakened.
