The Dweller group have been hot on the Stranger’s heels since they were introduced in Episode 5 of The Rings of Power. However, the chase is misinformed. They are after the mysterious man, believing him to be their lord Sauron. When they manage to capture the stranger and the Harfoots are no match for their power, things seem to be heading for a truly unfortunate end.
