"3. Arwen being tied to the ring...since when?"<P>Since she is now mortal and cannot take the ships to Valinor. Hence she is bound to the fate of the Ring like all mortals are.

Of course Isildur isn't going to get out after being shot but Aragorn could just as eaily have died, its symbolism. Isildur fell to the ring and got killed for it. Aragorn didn't because as Arwen...

If the scene was intended as a comparison to Isildur then it si a brilliant scene regardless if it is in the book or not. If it wasn't intended that way then it is a brilliant mistake.
