thranduil and thorin confession? Can't Post

Smilei was just wondering what you all think about thorin and thranduils relationship?
I believe we will see some kind of confession and acceptance between the two, either before, or during the bo5a or at thorins death bed. I believe it will be touching to see two enemies become friendsEvil

Friends? *spoiler* [In reply to] Can't Post

No, not really. I don't see the two becoming friends as, for example Legolas and Gimli did in LOTR, even if they had enough time.

Some sort of understanding each other and maybe forgiveness? Yes, I could see that. They might make their peace with each other in the end.

But this cannot happen before Bo5A, so I suppose it would have to be after the battle. However, there is a question of time there as well. I mean, how many deathbed interviews is Thorin going to have? He *has* to talk to Bilbo, that is far more important to see in the movie than any talk with Thranduil.

On the other hand, I wouldn't mind if Thorin and Thranduil do not see each other after the battle and do not make whatever peace between them in person. I like that in the book, when they buried Thorin under the mountain, Thranduil laid Orcrist on his tomb. I always understood that as a symbol of him honouring Thorin and making his peace with him in a way. That would actually be my preferred option. Simply follow the book...

This is one of my favorite parts of the book. It is to be hoped that the PJ and Co. don't make any changes here.
