Ah, yes. Tinuviel there has always been enhanced in feeling due to (as was the intent) the connection with Aragon. Reading the book through again with knowledge of Arwen, and what the War of the Ring...

For the first question, was it a deliberate mockery on the part of the Wight; a sacrifice...

Obviously, the imprisonment in the Barrow couldn't have lasted very long; just enough time to strip all of hobbits, except Frodo, and reclothe them in white.

Well, who's to say that was the only key? Seems rather slack of the Brandybucks to risk its loss. After all, all it would take is a drunken stroll into the Forest after dark, and you're sending to...

Exactly. I lost my taste for the "Priya" threads early on, because it seemed clear that Balfrog was less interested in honest discussion than in hammering away to prove "her" theories, as if proof...

If the War of the Ring does serve, as Gandalf intimates, to "train" the hobbits of the Fellowship, it makes sense that Pippin might need the more difficult "lesson".

Not sure if I have it exactly, but as a fairly quiet introvert by nature, I like Turin's admonishment to Androg:

Yeah. Ours went out Sat. the 14th. Didn't want to call anyone on the weekend because of the outrageous surcharge, and now there's apparently a horde of people in the area with the same problem.
