Why did no one help Gandalf up?

When Gandal was on the edge in Moria, the whole Fellowship (ecept Frodo who tried to save him, but was held back) just stood back. What I wonder is why didn't they help him up? Why did they just stand their & let him fall?

Because the orc army was hot on their trail and they had to haul ass

I'd guess because arrows were starting to rain everywhere, and that bridge prolly wasn't to stable after that little fight which broke most of it.

There is no good reason.

It's one of the Dumbest Lord of the Rings Moments.

Because it was a freaking Balrog!

What could the Fellowship do?
Gandalf was handling the situation just fine plus the heroes were being assaulted by goblin archers.

The way it's presented in the movie it seems like one of the Fellowship could have helped him up. The Balrog's whip clearly was no longer attached to his ankle and the goblin arrows were landing well short of threatening anyone. My theory is that Gandalf pushed himself off because he knew that the Balrog had to be killed.

Doesn't explain why none of the other Fellowship (besides Frodo) tried to rush forward to help him. Even out of knee-jerk instinct. They all just stood there. If the archers were a threat they would take cover, but they literally stood there out in the open and watched Gandalf struggling to hold on.


I love nitpicking.

I wonder if he really threw himself off to go after the Balrog. Maybe he was trying to demonstrate how to fly.

Possibly. The Balrog, if capable of flight, could have flown back up if there was no interference.

Drama? Alternatively, with Balrogs being masters of the dark arts, Gandalf was being dragged down by the Balrog's invisible powers. That or Gandalf had been made feeble by some strange magic of the Balrog, whO were always noted as the embodiment of the idea of fear in LOTR.
