The Rings of Power's Celebrimbor wants to meet a certain dwarf character in season 2

Full spoilers for The Rings of Power season 1 follow. Potential spoilers for season 2 are also incoming.

Celebrimbor actor Charles Edwards wants The Rings of Power season 2 to introduce a deep-cut dwarf character – and subsequently explore their friendship in more detail.

Speaking exclusively to TechRadar ahead of The Rings of Power episode 8, Edwards revealed how thrilled he would be if the high fantasy Prime Video series' next entry included another dwarf from Middle-earth's Second Age. The individual in question? Narvi, who shares a close friendship with Celebrimbor after the duo worked together on the Doors of Durin, Khazad-dûm's famous West-gate. 

This entrance was built by the two smiths in the Second Age, allowing for travel and trade routes between Khazad-dûm and Eregion during a prosperous period in elven and dwarven relations. However, it was sealed up during the War of the Elves and Sauron, thus bringing the kingdoms' ties to an end. In the Third Age, it becomes the entry point for Frodo and company to enter the Mines of Moria in The Fellowship of the Ring.

Lord of the Rings fans already know that The Rings of Power's second season will mark the live-action debut of another elf character. That individual is Cirdan the Shipwright, one of the oldest elves in existence who is gifted one of the titular Rings of Power. Cirdan is certain to receive one of those pieces of jewelry after the three elven rings were forged in The Rings of Power's season 1 finale.

Understandably, Edwards is excited to see Cirdan's introduction in a live-action capacity. However, he would be equally as enthused, if not more so, to see Narvi make their debut in the Lord of the Rings TV show. In the source material, there's little mention about the pair's close bond, so seeing another elf-dwarf friendship through Celebrimbor and Narvi play out on the screen would make for fascinating viewing.

Thrilling as Narvi's involvement in The Rings of Power season 2 would be, though, Edwards isn't sure if the dwarf character would be able to appear in the Prime Video show's next batch of episodes. Primarily, much would depend on whether the show's writers and Amazon have the rights to bring Narvi into the fold.

"That [Narvi's introduction] would be great," Edwards said. "I mean, whether the rights allow it, I don't know. I can't remember when Narvi is mentioned, or whether he's allowed to be in it. 

"But I think the creation of the doors [of Durin] will be a wonderful thing, however fleeting it may be. A lot of people don't know who Celebrimbor is really, but they know The Lord of the Rings, and they know the doors from The Fellowship of the Ring. So it'd be quite cool – and Celebrimbor's name is on the door as well, so yes, Narvi's introduction would be quite cool to explore."

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Peloton Reverses Course, Will Continue to Support Apple GymKit

Earlier this week, Peloton said that it would drop support for Apple's GymKit feature that syncs data to the Health app. Customers were unhappy with the decision and complained to the company, leading Peloton to announce a change in plans. Peloton on Thursday said that after listening to member feedback on GymKit, the integration will continue to be offered. Peloton wanted to stop offering GymKit integration in favor of the Peloton One-Tap tracking feature, but GymKit has been a key feature on the $2,500 Bike+ since its 2020 debut , and other Peloton machines since 2022. After listening to Members’ feedback about discontinuing Apple GymKit integration for Bike+, we have decided to continue offering Apple GymKit integration. As a Member-first company, we are always grateful to our Members for sharing their views. — Peloton (@onepeloton) February 16, 2024 The One-Tap tracking app does monitor distance, pace, and heart rate metrics, but only basic information is synced t

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
