She’s one of the most legendary female characters on TV. Ever. She’s flawed, and she’s strong, and she’s weak, and she’s complicated. She’s a person. Sometimes she cracks under the pressure. But she’s got a job to do, and she gets it done.
I'm incredibly sorry for the language but it's important to look past it to see the story. My favorite part of LOTR is Gimli and Legolas and their developing friendship and I will never understand why a lot of it was cut out of the theatrical versions.
