Hey guys! One lovely soul on the internet was kind enough to try to give an explanation for the eagle plot hole that has plagued us for years!
Why the heck didn't Gandalf just get the eagles to fly Frodo straight to Mount Doom? It would have saved a lot of time!
To preface this, the author VulcanDeathGrip is sure to say:
"It's been a while since I read the books so I'm not sure if my theory matches up with them. I've based the theory (mostly) on the films, and obviously there's a lot of spoilers."
So let's not judge too harshly!
