Once again this thread is probably already on here but oh well. I'm confused. Are the Glorfindel in the Silmarillion and the one in LotR the same person or different?? I thought that the Glorfindel (I think he was from Gondolin) in the Sil died in the fight with a Balrog but some people say it's the same one. I think Elves return to Ea but wouldn't he return to Valinor and not Middle-earth???
