Yes, my guess is that this is Nain

Nain has a red hammer, and Dain has a red axe...Together, they are RED DWARF.

If so, it is likely that what we are seeing is indeed the Battle of Azanulbizar. But the setting seems wrong. So, is it possible that PJ and company have conflated the attack on Erebor by Smaug, with the Battle of Azanulbizar? Perhaps this attack includes not just Smaug, but a horde of Goblins as well, led by Azog?

This would seem to justify the massive Dale set, etc. Perhaps we are getting a full-scale, extended flashback of Smaug AND Azog's attack on Erebor and Dale, with goblins running through the streets and attacking soldiers and civilians, and Smaug raining fiery death from above?

I think this is indeed possible. And to explain the moss growing on some of those Ereborian walls, perhaps PJ will imply that the dwarven realm was in decline, and thus was unprepared for the attack? Sort of like the barbarians at the gates of a diminished Rome?

I hope this is not the case, as I want to see Azanulbizar at the foot of the Misty Mountains, where it belongs...
