Sauron should appear in The Rings of Power

The Dark Lord Sauron is expected to be in power rings to some extent, since the title of the show was revealed.

Since the series is set during the Second Age, the show’s title only points to one historical event during the Second Age – the forging of the Rings of Power.

Sauron was the one behind the forging of these rings, ending with the creation of the One Ring featured in The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

It’s highly likely that Sauron will enter the series as a villain as viewers get flashbacks of how he became the Dark Lord after Morgoth was defeated.

Who is Morgoth?

Morgoth, or Melkor, was known as the first Dark Lord of Middle-earth and became the root of all evil in Eä or the universe.

Morgoth was a powerful Ainur, or Saint, who ruled during the First Age after rebelling against his creator Eru Ilúvatar. One of his many evil deeds included stealing the Silmarils depicted in Tolkien’s book. The Silmarillion.

During Morgoth’s reign, Sauron became the Dark Lord’s right-hand man in charge of commanding Morgoth’s fortress of Angband and his forces in the West.

Morgoth was slain by the Army of Valinor during the War of Wrath and banished to the void. However, remaining loyal to his master even after his death, Sauron quickly became the second Dark Lord.

Fans Are Convinced ‘Meteor Man’ Is Sauron

A scene during the recent trailer for power rings showed an older man falling to Middle-earth by a meteor and coming out of the fire with the help of a Harfoot.

While some fans thought it might be Gandalf, others were convinced it was Sauron. Sauron and Gandalf were both known as Maia who are said to have entered Middle-earth in the same way.
