Having reclaimed their treasure from the dragon Smaug, Dwarf king Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) descends into the madness of greed, unable to focus on anything but recovering the fabled Arkenstone, held secretly and uncertainly by Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman). When the people of Lake-Town arrive looking for shelter, Smaug having destroyed their homes, Thorin's men are distressed by his decision to barricade the entrance to Lonely Mountain. Bilbo makes a risky choice to avoid war when Thranduil (Lee Pace, AMC's 'Halt and Catch Fire') arrives with his Elvish Army, joining Bard (Luke Evans, "Dracula Untold") with his demands for Thorin to honor his word, but Sauron's dispatch of hordes of Orcs forces alliance in "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies."
