Follow TV Tropes
Moved from under the LOTR entry. If some more Tolkieninly-inclined than I can figure out whether or not this is indeed an example of the trope, and how, amend the current entry appropriately.
Tolkien himself said the two towers are Orthanc and Minas Morgul. The second one doesn't appear until Book IV Chapter 8, so yes, it is an example.
How about.. How I met your mother? The whole thing has nothing to do with the framework story. Presumably "your mother" is Robin, but that has yet to be confirmed.
On the Lord of the Rings entries...Granted I haven't read the books, but from everything I've heard, it's never really established which of the myriad towers in the book the title refers to, and it's obvious from the beginning that Aragorn is the long lost king.
I always assumed that the towers were Minas Tirith versus Minas Morgul.
