    Summary

    This is what happens to a man who is dead: Those left alive cut his body open, to see what was wrong inside him. In secret, he is pulled apart. They mourn him, and they bind him, and they bury him, deep beneath the earth. Maedhros has seen that once before, the total black of the grave, wet and stifling and cold. That is where they lowered Grandfather Finwe’s body, after he was dead.

    Maedhros is dead too, but all out of order.
