What is 'the trap' at Dol Guldur? Can't Post

In the trailer, we see Radagast ask Gandalf 'What if it is a trap'? It got me thinking about the Thrain angle again. In the Empire article, Peter hinted that there will be a father-son theme in this next movie. Perhaps in the Prologue we see Thrain wanting to follow Azog into Moria to finish him off to avenge his father, but he wants his son Thorin to carry off his legacy in Erebor, so he gives Gandalf the map and key, and asks Gandalf not to tell Thorin about him going to kill Azog (since he knows he may fail and die). This is to protect his son.

Flash forward to present, and the Necromencer wants the same map and key to enter Erebor to ambush and capture Smaug, so he has Thrain as a hostage to lure Thorin back (but instead he gets Gandalf). We also find out Azog and Bolg are agents of the Necromencer, hence why Thrain was brought to Dol Guldur.

Thoughts?

            Agreed. I think there will be a Bolg and Gandalf confrontation, and if there is any propriety in these films AinurOlorin Send a private message to AinurOlorin Jul 8 2013, 8:32am
