Madhi19 Reddit new post madhi19 on TIL that according to Tolkien, Sam Gamgee is the "chief hero" of the Lord of the Rings. The quest to destroy the Ring only succeeds because of Sam, who repeatedly saves Frodo from disaster, and he is the only character strong enough to surrender the Ring voluntarily and easily.

There a theory that Tolkien was toying with the idea of killing Frodo during the whole writing process. That because he rewrote the book from the start several times. Some of his major rewrote he started when reaching points like Weathertop, Moria and Cirith Ungol.
