I could see... [In reply to] Can't Post

... this prologue being the most "dive-into-story" prologue we ever had (maybe with the exeption of TTT, although that one calmed down right after the prologue with the Emyn Muil).

IF DoS ends on the Erebor-story-arc with Smaug leaving Erebor, I could see TABA opening with the story of Girion/Arrow/Necklace/Bard... with the images of Dale getting destroyed hundreds of years ago blending with the panic building in Laketown, as they see the mountainside on fire. Prologue and opening act could blend into a dark, action and emotionally powerful momentum, re-emphasizing the theme of homelessness and - via the necklace - the theme of greed, and foreshadowing the eventual "peace-trading" of the necklace of Girion and the Arkenstone.

ďA dragon is no idle fancy. Whatever may be his origins, in fact or invention, the dragon in legend is a potent creation of menís imagination, richer in significance than his barrow is in gold.Ē J.R.R. Tolkien

Words of wisdom that should be remembered - both by critics, purists and anyone in between.
