ANGLE ON: EOWYN crawls to where THEODEN lays, mortally
wounded . . .
THEODEN looks up at EOWYN ... his breathing shallow ... his
vision clouded . . .
I know your face ... Eowyn ...
EOWYN smiles down at him as she GENTLY STROKES his FACE ...
My eyes darken ...
No . . . I am going to save you ...
You already did . . .
(clutching her hand)
My body is broken ... you have to let me go
THEODEN touches her tear-stained face ...
I go to my fathers . . . in whose mighty
company, I shall not now feel ashamed ...
Final Revision - October, 2003 114
THEODEN is DYING . . .
THEODEN DIES ... EOWYN breaks down, SOBBING ... ALL AROUND is
a VISTA OF DEFEAT.
