The Land of Shadow
As Frodo and Sam make their way to Mount Orodruin, they realize that the Lord
of the Nazguls has been killed in battle by a sudden change in the air. Frodo and Sam came close to Orc quarters on the vast plain and get behind a bush just in time. One Orc kills the other and disappears.
A band of Orcs mistake Frodo and Sam for Orcs (since they are wearing stolen Orc clothing). They are fOrced to march with the Orcs. Later there is some confusion and Sam and Frodo slip away, finding a pit in which to get some fitful rest.
At this point, it seems like each time the two Ring-bearers get close to some kind of success, something gets in the way. Suspense builds and the plot escalates.
