“In episode three of Prime Video’s The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, Galadriel speaks to Míriel, the Queen of Númenor. That’s notable not just because it introduces the audience to one of J.R.R. Tolkien’s most spectacular locations, but also because it reminds us that on this series, female characters actually talk to each other.”
