AJ: mom, is anyone going to die? I'm worried!
Me: well, they are going to battle.
AJ: so is someone going to die?
Me: er, yes...but if you're asking about Aragorn, Legalos, Gimli, and the others...no, they don't die but other people will.
AJ: oh okay so like some riders of Rohan that I don't know very well.
And with that she cheerfully bade me continue the story.
