Much better if they use the real lie [In reply to] Can't Post

As Kangi pointed out, the "lie" that shows the influence of the Ring is not whether he had the Ring, but how he got it. And, of course, that "lie" doesn't exist in any edition of The Hobbit, but rather exists as the difference between the first and second editions, and is described in LOTR. I think they could have Bilbo tell the Dwarves the false story (which we will know is the false story, since we will have seen the "true" events) without making it into a big ominous moment, and perhaps have Gandalf briefly wonder at the veracity of the tale. That would set things up nicely for LOTR without spoiling the "My precious" moment.

'But very bright were the stars upon the margin of the world, when at times the clouds about the West were drawn aside.'
