All I hope for is this "Fallen from stars man" is not Gendalf.
That would explain his special relationship with the hobbits, but lol (I mean, lore) haha..

I'm kind of assuming it is.

I think the man from the stars is Sauron. His magic killed the fireflies, and his lava vibes seem appropriate for a servant of Aulė.

Either that, or he's someone new. I don't think it's Gandalf.

Yep. In the original text, the fall from heaven lasts nine (?) days and all of Book 1.

Wouldn't that conflict with the Tolkien canon if the Fallen Man were Gandalf? Not a Tolkien expert myself, just asking.

Well yes, he's not meant to arrive until the third age. But then they seem to be having the rings of power being forged in Ar Pharazon's time, which is about 1700 years too late, so sticking to the timeline clearly isn't a priority.

-- Spoilers --

I like what they did with Adar. The idea that the initial mockeries of the firstborn were closer to Elf than to Orc is kinda neat. When I initially saw his elf-ears, I thought he might be a Maeglin-ish character, but not so much.

I didn't feel great about Dark Evil Sword being a key to a volcanic mouse-trap, but it looked cool nonetheless.

This most recent episode was a lot more watchable for me because it stuck to one of the plot arcs. It's harder for me to stay engaged in the episodes where they jump around between the groups.
