'The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power' takes the audience back to a time when the Rings of Power hadn't been forged yet and Sauron hadn't shown up in his full form. In the third episode, the kingdom of Numenor is introduced, with Tar-Palantir, who is unable to rule the kingdom, his daughter takes charge and becomes Queen Regent.

Unfortunately for Miriel, she must live long enough to see her island kingdom being destroyed by the wrath of Valar, which has already been mentioned in the show. If Numenor marches to Middle-Earth, the evil will be stopped in its tracks.
Unbeknownst to both, this act will result in the destruction of Numenor. Previously, Gil-galad had said that Galadriel might stoke the fire of the very evil she was attempting to rid of, and this will prove true in a number of ways. Eventually, Sauron will be sent to Numenor and he will persuade Pharazon, now the king, to march on the forbidden lands of Valinor, which will result in the
