Dol Guldur-Timeline Can't Post

So like most of you im also very confused how they will handle this subplot. It would be really interesting to see what you all think about it and describe your ideas.

So,here is mine:

1. as a Flashback/Prologue for DoS:

Gandalf meeting up with Thrain at Dol Guldur for the first time, where he gets the key and map.Thats why he knows where to go through the fortress on his second visit together with Radagast. Maybe he had to leave very fast or Thrain died right after giving him both for safekeeping. IF that is the case, he will be resurrected by the Necromancer after that.

Reason ? Thorins quest-further information to Azog-Azog starts haunting the dwarves.

2. in present time:

Gandalf leaves the Dwarves after Beorn, travelling to the High Fells of Rhudaur. I dont think geography is such a important point for PJ concerning this scene ;)
Also its possible that these Tombs are situated on the right side of the Misty Mountains, although that isnt Rhudaur anymore i guess ?! However, i think that in Beorns House he will explain that he has to meet up again with Radagast. There could be a short flashback too, where he tells Radagast to meet up there,but not for which reason. Thats why Radagast says during the tomb-sequence "why am i here Gandalf?" That scene should talk place when Radagast tells Gandalf about his discoveries at Dol Guldur in AUJ. If so, that scene could be also in the Extended Edition.
They decide to travel to Dol Guldur again after seeing the tombs are all empty...

3. in present time:

Both arrive at Dol Guldur and Gandalf immediatly notices that there is something massive wrong. Possibly he feels another strong power hiding in the old fortress. Later on , he gets attacked by a driven mad and resurrected Thrain and gets imprisoned by Bolg and his orcs. Radagast is able to escape and informed the White Council about what happened at Dol Guldur...

THE END with the subplot for DoS.

I guess we will see the Assault on Dol Guldur and Galadriel rescueing Gandalf in There and back again. Just my personal impression because otherwise DoS would be a bit overloaded to me. Gandalf imprisoned is a nice cliffhanger as well to me.

Your ideas/suggestions ?!

    I don't see him being captured there. More likely (one would hope) to stay more true to the books AinurOlorin Send a private message to AinurOlorin Jun 21 2013, 7:08am
