Well, I'm probably a hundred percent wrong, and then some.... [In reply to] Can't Post

...but I think it could follow quite naturally. Here's how:

What happens at Laketown is the action climax of the film. We see it happen and its immediate aftermath, then go back to the Mountain where Bilbo and the dwarves are realising that Smaug hasn't come back. Just as in the book, they make their way further in, discover the treasure unguarded and so on.... Result, the mountain's theirs again... cue celebrations.

And then, just when you think it might be all over, we see the messages go out to Thranduil and his elves, the Lakemen, the Gundabad orcs. We see the armies forming to move on the mountain..... The dwarves think they've won - but we know it isn't over yet and there's worse to come.

Seems to me that would work, and would be very much in keeping with Peter Jackson's way of ending these films with climax, resolution, hint of what's to come. He doesn't do cliff-hangers, or at least, he hasn't yet. Everything builds to a huge action climax, from which we emerge drained and exhausted but glad to have come through, then just as we're all smiling and the titles are about to come up the pile of gold shifts and the dragon opens one very large, very alive eye. In DOS I reckon the dragon's eye will be the armies on the march.
