my apologies for my recent absence [In reply to] Can't Post

...but I have a few spare minutes, so here are my thoughts.

I like the idea of Beorn more as a mystery than simple eucatastrophe -- maybe it is my proclivity for imagining the "para-narrative" lives of secondary and tertiary characters... I like to think that some characters float (or, "barge" in this case) in and out of the story. I always had the impression, anyway, that Beorn is his own werebear and that any reason he might do or say anything is not always easy to understand or interpret.

As for Bard and the Elvenking -- could it be (as you said in post #1) that Thorin learned something about adventuring and furthermore these two kingly figures learned a valuable lesson as well? To me it seems a very meaningful gesture on both their parts, especially given the tension between the three of them leading up to the battle...
