Fan Theory: Lord of the Rings' Biggest Plot Hole Isn't a Plot Hole

You're not the only one wondering about the eagle factor in the LoTR trilogy. You're also not the only one who's thought of an answer.

Fan Theory: Lord of the Rings' Biggest Plot Hole Isn't a Plot Hole
New Line

To fantasy fans, it's a plot hole to end all plot holes: If the three hobbits from the Lord of the Rings trilogy are smart enough to get to Mordor on foot, why aren't they smart enough to fly there on giant eagles, saving them time and toil? I mean, none of them are idiots. (Well, Frodo and Merry aren't idiots.)

Well, wouldn't you know it: There's a fan theory for that, and here it is. After you see it, you may never see Gandalf -- or a hobbit, for that matter --in the same way again.
