Stage 9-2

In the forest, Merry and Pippin meet a very peculiar creature, a gigantic tree-like character who calls himself an Ent. The curiosity of this unlikely meeting is suddenly overshadowed by terror when the Hobbits realize Grishnákh, the Orc captain from Mordor, has pursued them into the woods.

Dialogue
Grishnákh There you are! Nobody to protect you now!
Grishnákh You can run, but you cannot hide!
Grishnákh Nowhere to run now, innit?
Merry & Pippin Our new friend here is very angry about what the orcs did to the forest!
With the help of the Ent named Treebeard, Grishnákh is taken care of. The Hobbits cannot believe their luck, meeting such an ancient creature. It is decided they will rest in the forest for the moment, as it is not safe to venture into the open plains where Saruman has extended his influence.
