one last roll of the dice? Can't Post

How do you think the Dol Goldur plotline fits in the context of the real narrative of the Hobbit concerning
Bilbo and the Dwarves? I think there is an interesting possibility that Dol Goldur heightens the main narrative in
demonstrating Bilbo and the Dwarves commitment to Middle-Earth in their fight for the last vestiges of the old guard,

I don't know whether the White Council considers the assault on Dol Goldur a success or not. Perhaps they don't know
themselves and are content to wait it out and hope for the best, but I see the White Council thowing in the towel after
Dol goldur. The White Council concedes the fight to the growing Darkness after this one last assault and passively hands
over the reins to the other folk to fight it out wherever they encounter it themselves. elrond and galadriel chip in when they can,
but rarely help from the front lines...radagast disappears or something, and sauruman joins the other side lol, which just leaves
gandalf and other characters like bilbo and thorin and the dwarves who still have a stake in the world. so the dol goldur plotline
could complement and heighten what bilbo and the dwarves are specifically trying to accomplish, which is not to save the world,
but to win their own objectives.

so the Dol Goldur plotline could indirectly slide the white council to the sidelines as their last abortive attempt before they concede
to the inexorable rise of the dark master, whereas Bilbo and the Dwarves push on yet and try to win their stake. the white council
quits and the journey yet continues for Bilbo and co. and thus restoring the story to the main narrative!!!! the wc star fizzles out lol, but
those so-called 'other' folk are the ones who continue their day-to-day existence!! long live bilbo and thorin and the dwarves! do you think
the dol goldur plot could be an asset to the main storyline in this way?
