Bilbo should have used the ring... Can't Post

In the final scene when he attacks the Orc about to behead Thorin, that way he could have killed Azog too before he knew what had hit him...Laugh

Sorry for nitpicking, I suppose Bilbo was so upset that he forgot about the Ring and acted on sheer impulse, but it's just something that PJ overlooked (which is unusual for him: like his ideas or not, he usually comes up with decent explanations for most things he does on screen).

"These are Gundabad Wargs! They will outrun you!"

"THESE are Rhosgobel Rabbits! I'd like to see them try...."

    He was trying to keep the Ring a secret at this point, from Gandalf and the Dwarves... QuackingTroll Send a private message to QuackingTroll Jan 8 2013, 9:47pm
