F.A.460. Gorlim was wearing of toil and flight and he sorely missed his wife so one night he turned to his home. But Sauron had been there before him to track Barahir on the command of Morgoth and he captured Gorlim. But Gorlim would not tell anything until they offered him reunion and freedom with his wife if he would tell the dwelling of Barahir. With that offer, and standing before the eyes of Sauron, he could not withstand and told all he knew. Indeed he was united with his wife for she was dead and Sauron cruelly put Gorlim to death. The treason of Gorlim caused the death of Barahir and his men save Beren only.
