Fog on the Barrow-Downs

Summary

The next morning the Hobbits set out and arrive at the edge of the downs by evening. They get lost and are captured by the barrow wights. Frodo calls for Tom, who rescues them. Tom sings them to consciousness and brings back their ponies, which had strayed. He gives them each a sword from the barrow wights’ stolen treasure. The swords had been forged by the Men of Westernesse, foes of the Dark Lord. Tom sees the Hobbits off and they set out towards Bree. Frodo reminds the others that he is now traveling under the name of Underhill, not Baggins.


Notes

Frodo shows his presence of mind twice in this chapter. First he is able to sing to Tom despite being under the spell of the barrow wights. Second, he remembers to travel incognito, as unknown assailants are pursuing him.
