The Rings of Power: This title already hints that we’ll see the creation of the Rings of Power in The Lord of the Rings series on Amazon Prime Video – and in the Season 1 finale, that’s actually the case . The creation of the rings differs from the works of JRR Tolkien, but in the end Celebrimbor (Charles Edwards), Galadriel (Morfydd Clark) and Elrond (Robert Aramayo) forge three rings. Tolkien’s famous ring poem already reveals, however, that it wasn’t all by a long shot.
But first things first: In the finale of “The Rings of Power” we first see the three Elven rings: Nenya (the Ring of Adamantine or Ring of Water), Narya (the Ring of Fire) and Vilya (the Ring of Air). In the following picture you can see Nenya below, Vilya on the top left and Narya on the top right:
Galadriel becomes the bearer of Nenya – if you still remember “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring”, you can see the adamant ring on Galadriel’s finger (here played by Cate Blanchett). Narya goes to season 2 confirmed Círdan (and later to Gandalf) and Vilya is first carried by Gil-galad (Benjamin Walker) and later by Elrond.
Because the Elven Rings were inspired by Sauron/halbrand (Charlie Vickers) but were created without his direct involvement, they are largely free of his influence. It is different with the other rings of power, which have yet to be forged.
In the ring poem is still from “Seven the dwarven rulers in their halls of stone” and “The mortals, forever doomed to death, nine” and of course “One[em] ring to rule them, to bind them all” the speech. So the seven rings of the dwarves, the nine rings of men and Sauron’s one ring are still missing.
In Tolkien’s works, the three Elven rings are actually forged last and the other rings before. and actually all rings are elven rings – Sauron is the one who distributes them to the humans and dwarves (Except for a ring that Celebrimbor gives to the dwarven ruler Durin III).
In the series it will probably be different. Sauron probably not only forges his master ring here, but also the missing 16 rings for the humans and dwarves and distributes them directly. However, it is also possible that Celebrimbor and Co. forge other, less powerful rings in Season 2 and then finally fall into the hands of Sauron.
However, now that the secret of Sauron/halbrand is known, that doesn’t seem like a good idea. In addition, Sauron’s influence on the rings, which is necessary for the nine humans who wear the rings to become the nine Ringwraiths – the Nazgûl, would then probably be missing. And you will hardly want to do without these iconic figures in “The Rings of Power”.
We will most likely find out more about this in season 2 – but it will probably be a while before it appears on Prime Video:
