First of all, I'd probably change that whole 'the ring can be destroyed if you chuck it into Mt. Doom' thing. I'd totally make it indestructable. Don't ask me how. But I would. :P

Actually, Sam ends up getting more fame and appreciation from the Shirefolk when he returns than Frodo does. He even becomes mayor, while Frodo is basically unappreciated.

Anyway, for that...

I don't think he is surprised, although I see how one could be mislead in that scene to believe so.

I think Gandalf takes a moment to feel comfort about the fact that Sam is going with Frodo. Like...

I thought the Eye was effective in the way that it made the audience realize how dangerous it was for Frodo and Sam to be scuttling about in Mordor, trying to reach Mt. Doom. I mean, they could have...
