Gollum’s Motivation

Listening to the BBC’s radio adaptation of Lord of the Rings, I picked up on an interesting detail. Gollum’s actor makes it more clear to me that his motivation in protecting Frodo is he hopes to regain the ring. He actively wants to keep Frodo safe because he knows if the Enemy gets hold of the ring, he will never get it back.

I don’t know if I realized that fully until now.
