Return of the king #2

[ #16380 ]
OK, I'll review it a bit more. Return of the King is really tying all loose ends together.

      However, it is extremely likely the Voice of Saruman chapter will be back in the extended edition.

      The love scenes in tTT were incidental, and didn't change the story at all. I was far more annoyed at what they actually changed, like
