Three rings for balance. One for rule, two in opposition, and three for balance. I suppose so that a majority would prevent one person from getting out of hand. Also I suspected Halbrand from the beginning and once he headed toward Eregion I was certain. I'm glad the "wizard" has left the Harfoots and yes that goodbye scene was totally filler. We learned that Nori's friend will be the new pathfinder and that she has her families blessing. It also looks like they are headed through the Gap of Rohan.Nori's goodbye scene may have been the longest in cinematic history.
Galadriel didn't tell Elrond and Celebrimbor that Halbrand was really Sauron?
I didn't get the reasoning as to why they decided to forge three rings. Maybe I missed it but it seemed like they just did it with no explanation.
I thought it was odd that when the artist woman yelled "Help!" about the king that nobody seemed to immediately show up.
They definitely offered a rationalization in the dialogue [50:44]: “one will always corrupt; two will divide,” in Galadriel’s words, so 3 were needed for “balance,” offered Celebrimbor.I didn't get the reasoning as to why they decided to forge three rings.

The Internet. A computer can’t get hacked if it isn’t connected to the Internet. (poetic license claimed)We don't know how yet, but at some point, the Dark Lord binds them.
Do we think the Halbrand made a ring before he slipped away? Or did something to the Mithril?
What I meant (said poorly) is the way he was Sauron all season. We just missed it, or chose to overlook it. He never lied once. He often asked for forgiveness. He even apologized for killing her brother. But to her it seemed a generic "I'm sorry for your loss", but in hindsight, he was literally apologizing.Did I miss this?
It was distracting that she didn’t immediately tell them.Galadriel didn't tell Elrond and Celebrimbor that Halbrand was really Sauron?
Heh, just noticed the nice visual effect as Elrond let the mithril drop into the melting pot.The mithril is likely the back door, since Halbrand’s “gift,” as it was dramatically characterized, was the suggestion to combine the mithril with alloys … to ensure that the mithril was used in the making of the Elven rings.
The series can't reference the Silmarillion. Amazon doesn't have the rights.IIRC in LOTR, Galadriel had one and Arwen had one that she gifted to Aragorn. Not sure where the third was.
The series is based on Tolkein's writings. Not sure if it's the Silmarillion or not.
Gil-galad, Círdan, and Galadriel. Círdan's ring later went to Gandalf, and Gil-galad's ring went to Elrond.IIRC in LOTR, Galadriel had one and Arwen had one that she gifted to Aragorn. Not sure where the third was.
Just to clarify, this is the way Toklien said it. But obviously, that's not the way this story is going, since the Dwarf & Men rings haven't been made yet.Sauron (in disguise) and Celebrimbor together made the 9 rings for men and 7 rings for dwarves before Celebrimbor made the 3 elf rings. Sauron never touched the 3, though they were made with the knowledge Sauron shared with Celebrimbor. After being 'discovered', Sauron snuck off to Mount Doom to make the 1 by himself. As soon as he put it on, the elves with the 3 knew it and removed and hid them immediately.
