The first season of The Rings of Power (2022) left many unknowns After entering one of the most conflictive times in Middle Earth, the rise of sauron. In the last chapters, the true identity of the Dark Lord was revealed to us, capable of taking on different forms, solving one of the great mysteries of the series. Now, the trailer for the second season continues to contribute to the suspense.

We can see Halbrand (Sauron) dressed as an elf, to the great Eagles appear in Númenor or the Stranger holding a staff, which brings him closer to the figure of Gandalf. Nevertheless, some new images from the second season They have shown another character that we had not seen until now, not even in movies, and everything indicates that it is the mysterious Tom Bombadil.

Bombadil has never been adapted into the series and movies, so it remains a mystery to all fans.

Tom Bombadil is one of the great dilemmas of Tolkien’s stories, since, although he plays a significant role in different novels, We have never been told its origin or function. The writings capture a colorfully dressed and very friendly man who lives in the Old Forest.

There are few references to Bombadil in Middle Earth, however, Some events show us the power of the character and their skills. In the novel of The Fellowship of the Ringwhen Frodo flee through the forest of the Nazgûl, meets Tom Bombadilwhich rescues them and even teaches to Frodo a magical song capable of defeating the Barrows.

In relation to this, it is also known that Bombadil was able to put on the One Ring and not be affected by it., not even because of its power of invisibility. Therefore, it is more than likely that we are talking about a higher being more powerful than the Istari and, why not, that he himself Sauron.

Tom Bombadil will be in the second season of The Rings of Power

In the writings, Bombadil is known as The Mayor, referring to his stay in Middle-earth since his own birth, perhaps before the Valar themselves. This would explain why it is known to all races from men to hobbits, including elves. Proof of this is found in the conversations they have Gandalf and Elrond during the Council of Elrond, in which They name Bombadil as an old acquaintance.

Thus, It is expected that the next season of The Rings of Power explain the beginning of the relationship between Bombadil and the alleged Gandalf or the why he also met Elrond. Furthermore, it will be very interesting to know the connection between the mysterious character and the creation of the Rings of Powerwhich seem to be forged in the following chapters of the series.

Either way, showrunners will have great freedom When dealing with the character of Tom Bombadil, what could go against you as happened in the first season, which was highly criticized for a notable lack of fidelity in relation to what was written by Tolkien in his books.

We will never know if Bombadil belongs to the Maiar, the Istari or if its existence is simply above all this, but the truth is that The Rings of Power have the opportunity to capture the behavior of the character and answer many of the questions.
