To recover the greatness of things past — within The Lord of the Rings, to save Middle-earth and their beloved Shire — the hobbits of the fellowship must overcome complacency and fear, and aspire to the heroism of the other races. Frodo and Sam, of course, do so in finally fulfilling their quest to carry the Ring to Mount Doom. This very experience later makes it impossible for Frodo to remain in the renewed Shire, for he has outgrown it and must journey on to the Undying Lands with others who understand his sacrifice.
He tries to avoid his destiny as king repeatedly and even appears reluctant as he takes a deep breath at his coronation. Unsure of his worth, he rejects Arwen and doubts himself. By no means is this Tolkien’s hero, who never once shies at taking the paths of the dead, and is hailed openly in Rivendell as Isildur’s heir and one of the Dunedain. As early as Bree, Tolkien’s Aragorn appears kingly and bears the broken Narsil, anticipating its re-forging. Except for the brief scene on Weathertop and a passing hint in the director’s cut at Eowyn’s bedside, Jackson omits all suggestion of Aragorn’s ancestral, semi-divine healing powers, a right of kingship and of blood.
Galadriel also glows, as do her husband, Celeborn, and Elrond in their initial appearances. All these characters have one thing in common: they all leave, along with Bilbo, on the last ship to Valinor at the epic’s close. Action scenes, too, echo each other. Sam reaches to save Frodo from the Cracks of Doom in Return with the same grip Frodo uses to pull him from the water at the end of Fellowship: their friendship and loyalty is mutually strong, equally necessary to the quest’s success. Galadriel reaches to Frodo through a dream in his battle with Shelob, and Aragorn to him on Caradhras: the support system and unity of races is thereby made clear.
