Definitely a prologue [In reply to] Can't Post

I think there will be a prologue, because that's just the way PJ does things. But something tied to Laketown could be workable - maybe a flashback to Bard's ancestor (Girion?) talking to his children or grandchildren about the black arrows and their purpose. If I remember correctly, he didn't survive the attack, so maybe the discussion could take place right before the dragon attack, maybe even hearing the "sound of a hurricane," then cutting to the current Laketown and the same sound.

Otherwise the meeting with Dain would possibly work, as long as somehow they bring up Dale or Laketown in the process. Perhaps Dain could be critical of the plan, since their chances of killing the Dragon are nil, and Smaug would just finish what he started, or something like that. Then maybe a quick shot of Thorin watching as Smaug flies toward Laketown, while Bilbo says something about the 4 dwarves still there. I don't know, just some speculation here.
