“The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power” has done what Peter Jackson’s films couldn’t: it expanded on J.R.R. Tolkien’s love of song and poetry, his obsession with trees, and his anti-war sentiments. But the show has made some changes to lore and story, even going so far as to break the single biggest rule from “Lord of the Rings.”
Season 1 explores the origins of many elements from the movies, such as the eruption of Mount Doom that turned Mordor into a hellish landscape and Sauron’s journey to reclaim his power and spread his corruption. The finale’s end sees the Dark Lord’s alter ego, Halbrand, entering Mordor to claim the land, but he does so on foot.
While this might seem like a small insignificant detail that went overlooked by those more interested in the possible conflict between Sauron and Adar, his method of arrival violates a fundamental rule. Fans of the series may be quickly reminded of the well-known fact
that Sauron has chosen to ignore:
One does not simply walk into Mordor.
