Plot points... [In reply to] Can't Post

IMHO, the only real function the Dol Goldur subplot has to the story of The Hobbit (Bilbo and the Dwarves) is to keep Gandalf (and his peers) from arriving at Erebor until it's essentially too late to salvage Thorin's kingship.

It really has bigger impact on the overall LOTR storyline and I think provides us with context for Bilbo's story (Bilbo and the Ring) within the greater legend/timeline of Middle Earth. It's the gathering storm that will takes us to Frodo in the FotR.

At least that's how I see it. I'm sure there are lots of views on this.
