I know that Tolkien wrote about the idea that Glorfindel of Rivendell and Glorfindel of Gondolin are one and the same... and I have thus accepted it, but what do you guys think of it? I'm curious.
And in any case... Finrod it seems was also let out (as well as Luthien but that's a different issue involving pity and such) as in "But Finrod walks with Finarfin his father beneath the trees in Eldamar."
So... I was thinking that at least in these two cases there is a trend—two people that made great sacrifices to save important historical figures were let out of the Halls of Waiting.
What do you think of this idea?
