Plot speculations for DOS Can't Post

Can you believe we still have to wait 9 1/2 looonnng months til we finally get to see DOS? I'd start jumping up and down with excitement already, but I think I'd be pretty tired come December. It's like the anticipation for Christmas when we were little kids, only...well, drat it, this is even better!

Okay, okay. Was just thumbing through the edition of The Annotated Hobbit that's currently living by my laptop (here's an aside question for you: how many copies of The Hobbit do you have in your house, and where are they all living right now?) and got into Flies and Spiders. (Another aside: I just realized there are several paragraphs there directly referring to Elvish history as recounted in The Sil -- how many times have I read The Hobbit (including just recently), and The Sil too, and I just now noticed this? LOL!). I can't get past the fact that in the book, the Elvenking does not recognize Thorin. This is a rather signficant point in the book. This can not possibly be true in the movie -- unless Thranduil comes down with an amazing case of amnesia. So I can't help wondering, what in Middle-earth will be Thranduil's excuse for locking up Thorin and the rest of the Dwarves? What is the Company going to do that so offends Thranduil? Just trespassing? Surely Thorin will know that they are in Thranduil's realm, and ought to have ready some smooth arguments for why Thranduil ought to leave them alone, should they run into each other. And Thranduil's betrayal of Thror et al. when Smaug attacked Erebor ought not to cause Thranduil to feel such anger towards Dwarves that he locks them up on sight.

So, that's what I can't stop thinking about. Much more interesting than cow water, which is something else I ought to go think about.

What other plot points are you super-curious about? And what are your thoughts on this one?
