Gandalf In The Two Towers:
Gandalf continues to battle with the Balrog as they fall down the chasm in Moria. After Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli find him in Fangorn Forest, Gandalf recounts the rest of what happened. He pursued the Balrog up to the peak of Zirakzigil and finally struck the Balrog down before he died. However, he was sent back because he was not finished with his task.
Gandalf then says that they must go to Edoras, home of Théoden, King of Rohan. Gandalf summons Shadowfax and the four ride to Edoras. At Edoras, they find that King Théoden is in the grips of Saruman's spell, which was woven by his advisor, Gríma Wormtongue. Gandalf breaks the spell. Gandalf next tells Théoden that he must fight the forces of Saruman. Théoden refuses, but later word arrives of raids on the Westfold. However, Théoden chooses to retreat to the stronghold of Helm's Deep.
Gandalf rides out of the Edoras Stables, telling Aragorn to look for his return from the east at dawn on the fifth day. Just as the defenders of Helm's Deep are being overwhelmed and making one last charge, Gandalf arrives leading Éomer and three thousand Rohirrim. By riding in from the east at dawn, the Uruk-hai are blinded by the morning sun and easily routed.
