October 14, 2022

*WARNING: Spoilers ahead for The Rings of Power Episode 8*

After teasing fans with a number of mysteries throughout its first season, Amazon’s The Rings of Power finally offered some answers in Episode 8.

The gripping episode, finally, confirmed Sauron’s identity and also hinted that the Stranger might actually be a wizard we’ve met before.

However, the episode also offers more teases for what’s to come, which means the focus turns to what’s next in The Rings of Power and if there will be an Episode 9.

The Rings of Power episode 8 recap

Episode 8 of The Rings of Power landed on Prime Video on Friday, October 14, 2022.

Titled Ally, the episode opens with the Stranger being accosted by the three Mystics, minions of evil who believe him to be Sauron.

However, the Stranger does battle against the Mystics when Nori and her fellow Harfoots are endangered and he is ultimately revealed to be one of the Istari, a wizard – the one we met in the original Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Elsewhere in Eregion, the Elves are growing increasingly desperate in their efforts to turn what little mithril ore they have into something that can save their race.

Halbrand unexpectedly comes to the rescue with a suspicious amount of knowledge on how to create alloys used to make jewelry.

Galadriel finally begins to realize that Halbrand may not be who he claims to be and after researching Southland’s broken line of succession she finally learns the truth, he is Sauron.

Halbrand flees Eregion after Galadriel confronts him about his true identity and arrives in Mordor while Celebrimbor completes the forging of the three Elven Rings of Power.

Will there be an episode 9 in season 1 of The Rings of Power?

No, there will not be episode 9 in season 1 of The Rings of Power.

This is because the opening season of the series only consists of eight episodes.

The chapter count isn’t unusual for a TV series, but it’s slightly shorter than the total episode count of The Rings of Power’s fantasy rival House of the Dragon, which has 10 episodes in its first season.

After starting with a two-episode premiere on September 2, The Rings of Power aired every Friday until the eighth and final chapter landed on October 14.

The full Season 1 release schedule is as follows:

  1. A Shadow of the Past | September 2
  2. Adrift | September 2
  3. adar | September 9
  4. The Great Wave | September 16
  5. Separations | September 23
  6. Udun | September 30
  7. The eye | October 7
  8. Ally | October 14

Season 2 is in preparation

While Season 1 may have just ended, Season 2 is already in the works at Amazon.

Filming for the second installment began on October 3, 2022 in the UK after production moved from New Zealand where Season 1 was filmed.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, The Rings of Power co-showrunner Patrick McKay said season 2 will be “a few more years away.”

Beyond the second season of The Rings of Power, Amazon has reportedly planned a total of five seasons for the series, so there’s still plenty to come as this adventure has only just begun.
