I think you're absolutely right.

Tolkien wrote the Party chapter and began this one as a straight-up Hobbit sequel for children. But then there was that eucatastrophic moment, when a childish prank on the tardy Gandalf transformed - right there on the page - into hiding from a sinister horseman cloaked in black. This indeed is the moment where the "New Hobbit" turned a corner.

Gildor/Gandalf: The first germ of the chapter "The Shadow of the Past" was a conversation between Bingo and Gildor, which was later transferred to Gandalf at Bag End.
