Full spoilers follow for The Rings of Power episode 8.

After a few bumpy, slow-paced episodes, The Rings of Power has found its feet in the last few weeks. The two entries preceding the season 1 finale – Udûn and The Eye – have been electric, dramatically shocking, and action-packed affairs. So much so, in fact, that season 1 of the high fantasy Prime Video series could’ve peaked early, leaving its eighth and final episode feeling like a damp squib.
