More from Fili plz!!! Can't Post

So there's been a fair number of comments re Fili getting more screen time, and while I personally think the camera loves Aidan Turner, who has really impressed me as AT is constantly "on", constantly responding to Thorin and totally "IN" every scene he is in, IMO there just has NOT been enough Fili. Think Dean O'Gorman has done well with any scene he has been in, and wish there had been one extra scene or two w. Thorin/Dwalin/Balin re grooming Fili as the heir.

DOS was a great improvement in that respect, but I still would have liked to have seen a scene where Fili is overhearing the conversation between Kili and Tauriel, maybe comes up behind Thorin at the Laketown steps confrontation, has some sort of hero moment in the river. I know this is a crowded field and Dwalin is rightly by Thorin's side, but IMO from the Appendices, Dean O'Gorman can really fight well, w. those dual swords. And to me Fili's dynamics are really interesting, because he is Thorin's heir, the older brother, but he truly loves Kili, and now there's the complication of Kili and Tauriel - and an ELF just saved his brother's life.

REALLY hope that TABA puts Fili more in the driver's seat, somehow. Total speculation but I could see a scene where there's a huge argument with Thorin at some point w. Thorin's attitude - which is interesting because the elves did imprison them, but Tauriel saved Kili - Fili trying to tell an angry, dragon-mad Thorin that elves aren't ALL bad (am sure that would go over well.)
And of course since Smaug is on his way to Laketown there's hope for a huge Fili hero-moment, and I say it's about time. Maybe there's a confrontation w. Bard, or he helps Bard somehow, seeing as I would guess Kili is not completely well and may not be fully mobile.

W. all the fuss over Kili and Tauriel, I am surprised that PJ didn't spend more time exploring the Thorin/Fili/Kili dynamics. Just the fan drawings on the Internet tell me there's an understandable appeal of bonded brothers, and an uncle that becomes a father-figure. It's something people relate to - to the fearsome Thorin (and Dwalin) helping to raise these "boys".
Seems like a missed opportunity so far.

And as an aside - TOTAL SPECULATION - so assuming Oin, Kili, Fili, and Bofur flee Laketown at some point during the chaos Smaug causes - do they just march up the road to Erebor through Dale - because except for Oin who was some sort of traveling merchant w. Gloin re the Appendices (e.g. they were around for the fall of Erebor but not in the castle - maybe in Dale) none of them have ever been there, and the terrain looks pretty harsh. And will they grab a boat or what?
