** To some, this idea is quite {{Narm}}y, with the StarWars trash compactor immediately springing to mind...

*** Which is exactly Tolkien's philosophy throughout the books. Remember the beginning of the Silmarillion?
--> "And thou, Melkor, shalt see that no theme may be played that hath not its uttermost source in me, nor can any alter the music in my despite. [[EvilCannotComprehendGood For he that attempteth this shall prove but mine instrument in the devising of things more wonderful, which he himself hath not imagined."]]

* There are many parallels in Smeagol and Frodo's stories. Both Hobbits, both with one dear best friend, both driven mad by the One Ring... What would have happened if Gollum hadn't gone with Frodo and Sam on their journey, if [[AloneWithThePsycho Sam had been left alone with Frodo]]? Would Frodo have wound up killing Sam the same way Smeagol killed Deagol, and ultimately would the Ring have remained with Frodo until Sauron had reclaimed it? Having Gollum along, a trio instead of a duo, changed the dynamics and thus the outcome of the whole story.
* What would have happened to Gollum if he'd met Shelob again? After all, he brought her the meat the stuck a pin in her.

** Adding to this, The Crack of Doom being unguarded is brilliant in itself. Sauron not only didn't really think anyone would have the will to resist the One Ring's influence enough want to destroy it and stay that way until they reached the Crack of Doom not to mention actually succeed in getting there alive, but even if they did the One Ring would unavoidably finally corrupt them once they tried to destroy it anyway. The Crack of Doom is left unguarded both because the constantly erupting Mount Doom makes it impractical to do so and also as SchmuckBait to both draw whoever has the One Ring to Sauron's doorstep and corrupt the Bearer turning them into his servant or creating a new Dark Lord depending on who did it. Sauron covered all bases except the only one he couldn't possibly have predicted or done anything about, the One Ring being destroyed accidentally.

* In the Houses of Healing, the herb-master characterizes the athelas (kingsfoil) Aragorn asks for as a home remedy used by old men. The old men who use it are probably about Aragorn's actual age--he's close to ninety.

* Tom Bombadil gives the four hobbits a whole day of his time, just telling them stories. Not only that - he recounts (backwards) the story of the entire world, all the way back to the beginning. Frodo´s reaction at the end of this, is a mix of StunnedSilence and a mystical revelation. This experience is a part of the point of Bombadil, giving us, and the hobbits, a sense of "depth". It also gives some meaning to Pippin´s joke towards Gandalf while riding to Gondor, when he asks Gandalf for the "whole story of Middle-Earth, the heavens and the sundering seas" - Bombadil already gave him that one. The bet is - can Gandalf do the same? He is at least just as old as Tom Bombadil.

* The scene where the Corsairs of Umbar (well, their ships anyway) arrive at the Battle of the Pelennor Fields shows the orcs showing an OhCrap expression when Aragorn, Gimli, and Legolas step off seems a bit comical at first, since they're essentially showing fear of three people (remember, they don't even know about the ArmyOfTheDead thing yet). Taking a moment to see it from their view, it suddenly becomes a lot more understandable: "Wait, these aren't the people we were expecting! Who ''are'' these people? ''What have they done with our reinforcements?''"

** And Hobbits just want to be left in peace, unnoticed, invisible.

** And Hobbits just want to be left in peace, unnoticed, invisible. They want to farm their lands, eat the results, and be left alone. There's little in the way of hierarchy or rulers. Even Gollum had no desire for power or riches. He just wanted the ring to have it. Bilbo used it to become invisible. Samwise puts it on and sees a magnificent, Platonic ideal of a garden, but shakes it off by thinking of how much of a pain it would be to maintain. It's like their brains can't handle the concept. The reason Sauron never bothered handing a ring to Hobbits - they're both beneath concern ''and'' have no real capacity to want anything he could offer.
