Lie Down in the Darkness, Rise up from the Ash

Ch. 14: Who Might Have Met Too Late

"...I think one so honest as your brother would not last without a protector. Without someone to guard his interests closer to home."

I like this observation of Legolas', and it seems to fit well with what we know of both Eomer and Eowyn: Eomer, who was ever forthright in the narrative, and Eowyn, who was certainly eloquent and equally forthright when she was in her own, but who had also, by necessity, to practice circumspection under Wormtongue's time of power, and subterfuge when she defied her uncle's orders.  She had some capacities that he did not; that she would have had occasion to protect her brother behind the scenes is realistic.
