**Warning – Spoilers ahead for The Rings of Power**
The Rings of Power delivered a gripping entry this week that raises the stakes tenfold for next week’s penultimate episode and we eagerly look ahead to preview Episode 7.
Episode 6, titled Udûn, saw the people of the Southlands, including Arondir, Bronwyn, and Theo battle against Adar’s orc army, while Galadriel, Queen Regent Miriel, Halbrand, Elendil, and the Numenorean soldiers traveled to Middle-earth to aid them.
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 7 Preview
This week’s entry delivered an hour of action-packed entertainment that seems worthy of a series finale, but there are still two episodes to go.
Episode 7 will see the direct aftermath of the volcanic eruption – the awakening of Mount Doom – and the full extent of the lives lost in the disaster will be realized.
We know from the preview that Galadriel is unscathed by the wall of ash that engulfed her during this week’s closing moments and The Lord of the Rings fans will surely get a kick out of seeing the foundations of Mordor being laid.
While the Numenoreans and people of the Southlands retreat from the devastation, it’s likely Sauron will be regrouping in preparation to invade the newly ashen expanse.
Additionally, the preview also shows that we’ll return to the Harfoots to see what becomes of the mysterious figures who are hunting the stranger. Elrond and Durin will also mine too deep for Mithril and the rise of the Balrog is imminent.
