The LOTR trilogy tends to evoke literally every emotion in viewers, but sadness is generated the most. For every two steps that Frodo and his allies walk, they take one step back, with that back-step representing everything from betrayal to injury to kidnapping to death. They eventually get to their destination, of course, but a lot of tears had been shed by that point. However, more tears were shed by viewers who noticed heartbreaking details that the rest of us missed.
Here are 15 such small but hugely emotional details that fans noticed about the Lord of the Rings movies.
