    Actually since you didn't specify I assumed this was not a 3-2-1 puzzle and therefore a one word answer was not what you were looking for...

    And I was gonna guess Argonath!

    The actual answer is much more fitting.

    You have it.

    Aragorn, speaking of Gandalf while the fellowship was at a decision point in Moria;
    He is surer of finding the way home in a blind night than the cats of Queen Berúthiel.
    Beruthiel, the "catwoman" of middle-earth.

    Your turn.

    Those 3-2-1 thingies are way harder to come up with than I thought!

    This is not one, but all I could come up with this time...

    humbug hostage host

    Should be easy enough right?

    Try it this way;
    First, come up with a Final one-word answer.
    Second, figure out a clue for that.
    Finally, decide upon a three-word clue for the second clue.

    IE; Beruthiel -> Catwoman -> Gotham's chief vixen

    Then after you have that, make sure there are not a whole bunch of possible alternative answers... that is maybe the hardest part.

    Aye I was trying to work it backwards, but I just couldn't come up with anything very clever...

    If I ever get the anser on this thread again I will spend more time on it for sure.

    Oooo very clever answer! I'm tempted to take it but I'd like to keep going a bit!

    Here's a hint: all three words refer to the same person.

    Humbug, Hostage, Host

    I have 2 answers and I think both fit equally well, so I can't decide on which is a better fit.

    The answers are Saruman and Sauron.

    Humbug has several meanings one of which is "fraud".

    Both Saruman and Sauron can be thought of as frauds.
    Saruman was acting fraudulently when he pretended to be helping the free peoples against Sauron and when he pretended to be an ally of Theoden/Rohan.
    Sauron was acting fraudulently in his guise as Annatar when teaching the elves ringlore. (Lord of gifts indeed).

    Both Saruman and Sauron were hostages. Saruman held captive in Orthanc by Treebeard.
    Sauron taken hostage and held captive in Numenor by Ar-Pharazon.

    Both Saruman and Sauron acted as hosts when they held various individuals as captives; Saruman held Gandalf captive. Sauron held many captives including Gollum/Smeagol.
