I do agree that the story of Faramir and Eowyn was very I did read the books and I really missed the inclusion of Faramir/Eowyn's relationship. . don't fully understand that, but I can see it in everyday life and I do trust. 70 discussion posts. Deleted User said: This is copy and paste from my old topic in The Return of the King, so if you'd already read that, then whatever. Eager to earn their trust Faramir delivered his famous oath, saying that he Faramir and Éowyn settled down in Emyn Arnen, a range of hills in Ithilien . The relationship is similarly strained in the books, but there his father's.
And those who were stricken with it fell slowly into an ever deeper dream, and then passed to silence and a deadly cold, and so died. In Frodo's case, using a Morgul knife, the end result would have been Frodo's fading into a wraith, a primarily spiritual process. They were also referred to in Unfinished Tales as "by far the most powerful of his [Sauron's] servants".
In severe cases, the affected could not return on their own, and so eventually died. Aragorn would then have healed Faramir primarily by showing him the way back to his body and to full consciousness, as seen when he appears to call for Faramir as if for one who is lost.
The last is of particular interest in this case and is described below. Authority may also lend force to the thought of one who has a duty towards another, or of any ruler who has a right to issue commands or to seek the truth for the good of others.

Aragorn would have invoked his authority as the rightful king to strengthen his call to Faramir. During the questioning he denied knowledge of Gollum but revealed that he travelled with both Aragornthe Heir of Isildurand Boromir. There he questioned them further in private, learning that the hobbits' errand was linked to the 'Isildur's bane' that had sent Boromir to Rivendell in the first place.
Eager to earn their trust Faramir delivered his famous oath, saying that he " Not were Minas Tirith falling in ruin and I alone could save her, so, using the weapon of the Dark Lord for her good and my glory.
No, I do not wish for such triumphs". In a slip up however Samwise revealed the nature of 'Isildur's bane' and so Faramir was tested, just as Boromir had been, by the lure of The Ring.
Where Boromir failed Faramir succeeded, leading Samwise to remark that Faramir had "shown [his] quality". Faramir called Frodo to him who confessed to the part of Gollum in their errand, begging Faramir not to slay him. Gollum was caught and questioned and then surrendered to Frodo.
The following morning Faramir released Frodo and Sam with Gollumbut warned them strongly against taking the pass of Cirith Ungol. I apologize for taking this conversation far afield of the OP's question.
It is a debate I usually wouldn't have entered into if it had not been for the more recent intriguing posts. So in way of setting it to rights I will respond but briefly.

Do I believe Eowyn truly loved Faramir? I believe she loved Faramir but not Aragorn. She both lionized and idolized Aragorn but in her rapture of him there was no room for the man.
I can crush on someone and call it love but that does not make it so. So I see her infatuation of him for all the many reasons we observe in their encounters as little more than an obsession.
She sees him as a glorious and appealing means to an end.LOTR Return of the King - Aragorn heals Eowyn
He holds the golden ticket for her escape from the tediousness of her life, from the cage she believes she inhabits. How true is that still seen today to disastrous results?

Her intentions are not pure nor are they honorable. They are not loving for there is the stain of selfishness in them.
And I am enough of a romantic to believe there is no room for selfishness in love. She does not love the man Aragon, she loves the idea of him.
