Dol Guldur is going to be much less of an event than people are expecting, methinks [In reply to] Can't Post

I honestly don't think we'll see a huge battle or anything like that. That is coming at the Bo5A. Sadly, what we are going to see is the weakening of Gandalf as a character, with him being 'defeated' by the Witch-King and/or the Necromancer, and then saved by Galadriel.

I think DoS will end with Radagast dead and Gandalf on the brink of death, calling out to Galadriel, who will appear in the same manner as she did at Rivendell, out of nowhere (this is why they introduced this ability of hers in AUJ)

Early in TABA we will see the second White Council meeting where Saruman agrees to the overthrowing of Sauron from Dol Guldur. He will say that even though he didn't agree with Radagast's ways, the death of one of his Order cannot be ignored and Sauron must be removed before he becomes too powerful.

Though I'm convinced the confrontation with Sauron will be pretty short and sweet. The whole White Council subplot shouldn't take up any more than 20-30 minutes of TABA, leaving 2 hours to deal with Smaug's death, Bilbo's 'betrayal', the Bo5A and the conclusion. Sounds right to me.
