To sum up an essay regarding Glorfindel in HoMe XII - The Peoples of Middle-earth, Last Writings: after Glorfindel was killed defending those who would escape Gondolin's fall, his spirit returned to Mandos but was released quickly because of his sacrifice; he then spent time in Valinor (during this stay he was enhanced and became a follower and friend to Olorin), and returned to Middle-earth, probably in the Second Age. These are Tolkien's latest ideas regarding Glorfindel's reappearance.
