Re-Viewing Lotr

Tomorrow is the day.

Reviewing The Two Towers I find that at one point Gimli says to Aragorn: “Bless you” in German: “Mögest du gesegnet sein!” I wonder wether this is a quote from the books because it just doesn’t fit. Blessed by whom or what? I remember very distinctly that the books never made mention of any gods or a spiritual world.

And the horse that Aragorn rides back to Helm’s Deep on, is indeed the same horse of Theoden’s son that is released by Aragorn in a scene in the extended edition.
