As the first arrow strikes home, he sees the fall of the White City, its gate shattered. In the streets, his people die, swept away by the black tide of Sauron's army.
The second arrow paralyses his arm, and brings a vision of his brother's death as he rallies his men for a last defence of Osgiliath.
The third arrow brings him to his knees and drives the hope from his heart as he sees the doom that will befall his little ones in Orthanc's fell confines. In the wake of Boromir's lost honour, all he loves falls to dust.
