What if, like
What if the Balrog was really an angel, and so was Gandalf, and the angels work in strange, mysterious ways, to further their own goals, and the goals of whoever they've decided to call their masters at the time? Like, what if the Balrog was just taking a nap, and Gandalf sorta managed to kick his hive over, or the plan all along was for Gandalf to assassinate the balrog, so shit wouldn't get fucked up when war eventually hit?
What if the movies have told people what the fuck's really going on, so we'd not have to explain to every single moviegoer that, yes, Gandalf is an angel, and yes, so is Sauron, and Sauroman, and the balrog. Maybe, while they're at it, they shouldn't have added that one scene in the extended versions, where Gandalf gets his staff broken by the fucking witchking in a staredown.
