Lie Down in the Darkness, Rise up from the Ash
Ch. 27: Price of Passage
In the original story Faramir's decision to let Frodo and Sam go is a great achievement and a testimonial to his true quality. How much more at the end of this chapter, in light of what he has learned - and of what was done to him!
And here I thought it was Frodo's great charisma eliciting answers from Faramir - after all, how often do we read (and write) about a character being surprised by his own words, or answering in spite of herself? What a chilling scene, the more so because it is between Frodo and Faramir. I don't think Frodo ever did anything like this in Tolkien's original, though he spoke of it darkly enough to Gollum when first they met. It just never got to that point (and thank God it didn't.)
