Dagger in hand

A man of prodigious fortune, coming to add his opinion to some light discussion that was going on casually at his table, began precisely thus: "It can only be a liar or an ignoramus who will say otherwise than," and so on. Pursue that philosophical point, dagger in hand.

--Michel de Montaigne, Of the art of discussion.

I didn't mind the elves showing up at Helm's Deep, but Naomi Chana did. She has a good point. More I think about it though, I come to the conclusion that the reason the film needed for Haldir to show up was so that someone resembling a major character could die in the battle. Odds like that and no-one important on the good guys' side goes down? Audiences won't buy it. But who else you gonna kill?
