An old discussion re-visited: The End of DoS Can't Post

Potentially spoilery



Doing some thought-juggeling in another thread, I had another idea for a possible ending of DoS.

Let's see what you guys think (I only summarized this in a bullet-point kind of way):


Last third of the movie: Bilbo entering Erebor, talking to Smaug and leaving again intercut with the skirmish at Dol Guldur

Last scenes in the WC-scenario: a Galadriel / Gandalf scene: Sauron has left, but they realize what power he seems to be gathering again and that he is by no means defeated but that the dark days are yet to come; Gandalf is probably wounded, if we can believe some sources; fear of Gandalf not to reach the North in time anymore (assuming that through a Azog/Bolg connection he knows by now that there will be an attack on Erebor).

Last scenes in the Erebor-scenario: Smaug leaves the mountain and sets the mountain-side on fire; he also attacks the dwarves, though they can ultimately rescue themselves (giving that storyline a climax and some real threat); Smaug decides to attack Laketown

Last scene: other than in the book, the thrush does not actually speak. Bilbo attaches a short note to the bird and sends it to Laketown in the hope to alarm them. While Smaug still sets the mountainside on fire, the thrush vanishes into the South.
