In Lord Of The Rings, why does Gimli cry out when he sees that his dwarf ancestors had died?
I recently saw The Hobbit 2,.and I'm assuming that they do get their mountain back from the evil Smaug dragon. Soo flash forward a couple years in lord of the rings, the guys are in a mountain and Gimli thinks that the other dwarfs will greet them however he cries out when he sees some corpses. He freaks out.......This was when they all got attacked by a huge octopus-like creature. Gandalf said some words to open a door in the mountain. When they got in there where corpses all over the floor. why did Gimli cry out? What happend? Or what is it that happend to Thorin (not sure if i spelled it right).
