After securing support from the elves of Numenor to fight for the humans of the Southlands, Galadriel (Morfydd Clark) trains them for battle in Episode 5 of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power.

While Galadriel was about to be sent back to her homeland, a powerful omen - the white petals from a sacred tree falling - caused Queen Regent Miriel (Cynthia Addai-Robinson) to support the elf's cause.

Thursday night's new episode - entitled Partings - also shows the diminutive Harfoots continuing their pilgrimage, while Theo (Tyroe Muhafidin) shows Arondir (Ismael Cruz Cordova) his mysterious blade while Elrond (Robert Aramayon) and Durin (Owain Arthur) pay a visit to King Gil-Galad (Benjamin Walker).

The episode begins in a field with Nori (Markella Kavenagh) and the monstrous Stranger (Daniel Weyman), as she tries to teach him her language.

He keeps saying, 'My great thumb' but she corrects him to say, 'Migration,' the arduous pilgrimage the Harfoot find themselves on.

'You see we winter in the Old Forest, and in mid-summer we make for Norfield Glen to snail while the snailing's good,' Nori explains.

She adds that, 'at the first blush of the oak leaves we head to the Grove,' which is an orchard with all sorts of food.

'The only trouble is there are hundreds of perils between here and there,' Nori explains while eating a snack.

He asks what 'perils' are and she says 'danger,' and anything that will 'kill ya,' as the Stranger asks what kill means.

'It means to make something... dead,' she says solemnly, as a realization dawns upon the large stranger.

'I'm peril,' he says, though Nori insists he's not and the fire he caused with the fireflies was, 'just an accident.'

'You're not a peril. You're good,' Nori explains. 'You're good because you're here to help,'  when her mother Marigold (Sara Zwangobani) calls for her and they leave. 

The show made history long before the first two episodes debuted on Thursday evening, since it's considered the most expensive series ever.

The show's inception can be traced back to July 2017, when a grueling lawsuit between Warner Bros. - the studio behind the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit films - and the J.R.R. Tolkien Estate, was settled.

Both the studio and the estate started offering the television rights to the franchise
