Hmmm, I could have sworn that Gandy thought that it was one of Sauron's lesser servants taking shape again at first, and that that was why he was so lacksadaisical about the whole thing for so long...?

Interesting Question

Everyone seems to be getting question 20 wrong. Merry actually struck the Witch King first which gave Eowyn the opportunity to do so as well. So it would seem like more of an effort between Merry and Eowyn, not just Eowyn herself.
