I intended replying to this post earlier but I wanted to check something out which I've only just got round to. This quote is from Rolling Stone some years back - I wonder if PJ had this scene in mind:

" Peter Jackson explains how, at first, he had to spur on Wood to inhabit the darker side of Frodo. 'He was having to summon up feelings of genuine hatred that he didn't enjoy doing', says Jackson. 'Those were the times when I had to say to Elijah, 'I'm not quite believing it - let's do it again.' And when they did it again, he was there"

He certainly was 'there'!! Amazing for someone so young and for whom those feelings were obviously completely alien:)

Whoa, yes! What a look of utter repulsion! However the "genuine hatred" may have been for Gollum, put to the test in Shelob's Lair (the realisation scene and then the fight in the tunnel). He was great though, EW, in these scenes. I sure wish he'd do something on screen that tapped into that well again. He really can be so GOOD.
