Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Frodo got stabbed by a Ringwraith.

The first adventure of "The Lord of the Rings" was when the hobbits from the Shire made their way to Rivendell with the One Ring while being pursued by Ringwraiths. The wraiths attacked the party when they were camping at Weathertop. Frodo tried to escape the wraiths by putting the ring on to make himself invisible, but the wraiths were still able to sense the ring, and stabbed Frodo with a poisoned Morgul blade at 1:14 in "The Fellowship of the Ring" (extended edition).

This was the first of many times Frodo would be stabbed in the series.
2. The Fellowship of the Ring was formed.

Getting the One Ring to Rivendell was just the first part of the adventure. Elrond convened a meeting of dwarves, elves, and men to discuss what to do. It was decided that the ring needed to be taken to Mordor to be destroyed in the fires of Mt. Doom. Elrond declared the nine volunteers for this quest the Fellowship of the Ring at 1:45 in "The Fellowship of the Ring" (extended edition).
3. Gandalf fought a Balrog in the mines of Moria.

The Fellowship was struggling across the Misty Mountains, so they decided to travel through the dwarven kingdom of Moria (also called "Khazad-dûm"). Gandalf did not want to because he knew that the ancient and evil Balrog lurked somewhere in the caves.

Indeed, Gandalf fought the Balrog at the Bridge of Khazad-dûm at 2:26 in "The Fellowship of the Ring" (extended version), just before the rest of the Fellowship escaped the caves. Gandalf sent the Balrog into the chasm, but was pulled down with the beast as it fell.
4. Boromir sacrificed himself for some hobbits.

The Fellowship was attacked by Uruk-hai at Amon Hen at the end of "The Fellowship of the Ring". They were looking for Frodo who bore the One Ring, but all they knew was that he was a hobbit. During the battle, Boromir sustained lethal wounds protecting the hobbits Merry and Pippin.

In the books, this battle actually took place at the beginning of "The Two Towers".
5. Gollum joined Frodo and Sam to lead them to Mordor.

After the recap of the first movie (Gandalf's battle with the Balrog), this was the opening scene of "The Two Towers". Frodo and Sam were lost in the Emyn Muil with Gollum stalking them. When Gollum finally attacked, they managed to fight back and subdue him. Frodo made a deal with Gollum to get them out of the rocky maze.

The whole of "The Lord of the Rings" was six books, with two books per publication (so "The Two Towers" contained books 3 and 4). Book 4 contained everything about Frodo, Sam, and Gollum, while book 3 had everything else (Aragorn, Rohan, the other hobbits). Book readers would have already read the climax at Helm's Deep before reading this scene, which is why the movies were specified for this quiz.
6. Marry and Pippin met Treebeard.

Merry and Pippin were captured at the finale of the previous movie by Uruk-hai, but escaped when their band was attacked by the Riders of Rohan (Rohirrim). They ran into the forest and were saved by Treebeard at 0:39 in "The Two Towers" (extended edition).

The ents (tree people) were known for being slow in everything (speech, walking, decision-making), but were fearsome enemies, as Saruman discovered at the end of the movie.
7. Rohan made a stand at Helm's Deep.

The Uruk-hai army of Isengard was sent against Rohan. King Théoden of Rohan could not realistically mount a defense at the city of Edoras, so he had everyone march to the more defensible Helm's Deep. The Battle of Helm's Deep was the climax at the end of "The Two Towers".
8. Aragorn negotiated with some ghosts.

The Army of the Dead were the ghosts of men cursed by Isildur thousands of years before "The Lord of the Rings", for breaking their oaths. They killed anyone who wandered into their domain. The only person who could release them from their curse was the king of Gondor, descended from Isildur, but the ghosts believed the lineage had ended, leaving them with no hope of peace. Aragorn proved he was the king by successfully parrying the King of the Dead's attack. Aragorn offered to release the ghosts if they would save Gondor from the army of Mordor.

The ghosts were first seen at 1:53 in "The Return of the King" (extended edition).
9. Frodo got stabbed by a giant spider.

Gollum's plan was always to kill Frodo and get the One Ring back. As a trusted guide, Gollum led Frodo into the lair of Shelob, a giant spider. Frodo realized Gollum's betrayal, escaped the lair, subdued Gollum (again), and was just continuing his journey to Mordor when Shelob paralyzed him with her stinger at 2:24 in "The Return of the King" (extended edition). He was wrapped in web, but Sam fended off Shelob before she could take Frodo.

In real life, no spiders have stingers; they transfer venom through bites.
10. Gollum bit off Frodo's finger.

At the climax of the final movie, Frodo's will to destroy the One Ring failed. Instead of casting it into the lava of Mt. Doom, he put it on (becoming invisible), and tried to escape. Gollum, still wanting the ring for himself, saw Frodo's footprints and grappled him, biting off the finger with the ring at the 3:32 mark in "The Return of the King" (extended edition). Frodo continued to fight Gollum, accidentally pushing Gollum into the lava with the ring, killing the Dark Lord Sauron.
