Shelob, the King’s Return, falls under the sword of Sam, who finds in one of the eyes of the spider the only soft spot in his body and thus perforated. The final blow came from Pungolo, the sword that Bilbo had donated to Frodo in Gran Burrone before embarking on the dangerous journey to Monte Fato: seriously injured, so for the first time in his life the great spider was forced to flee from Cirith Ungol and find shelter elsewhere, without telling anyone where he really went to hide.
After the War of the Ring and the destruction of Sauron and the One, it is likely that Shelob has returned to his den, now no longer used as a secret passage for the lands of Mordor and then relegated to a simple hideout without any kind of vellness exploratory. In the version told in the Shadow of the War Shelob is a spider, as has already been mentioned, that appears under the clothes of a woman, capable of visions all the time and ready to any dislocation, even to be able to tell her in the Ring War .
