After the Dragon leaves the Lonely Mountain, the people of Lake-town see a threat coming. Orcs, dwarves, elves and people prepare for war. Bilbo sees Thorin going mad and tries to help. Meanwhile, Gandalf is rescued from the Necromancer's prison and his rescuers realize who the Necromancer is.
For the scenes where Galadriel picks up Gandalf, a dummy of Sir Ian McKellen was used. This dummy was called Michael Gambon (it was even included with that name on call sheets (as seen in the appendices documentary)) because Gambon and McKellen sometimes get mistaken for one another. See more »

By Durin, you've lost your axe!
[Bifur reaches up to his head and notices the axe that was in his head has been dislodged]
No, he hasn't! There you go, cousin.
[takes the axe head and throws it over his shoulder]
You know where you can stick that.

Although I really enjoyed the first and second one, I didn't want to watch the third one because pretty much everyone I knew said it was disappointing. Well I watched it today and was so disappointed in myself for giving too much credit to what other people think over what Peter Jackson presented through the film's two predecessors. The film was really fast paced and didn't have any dragging lagging boring scenes. There was always something going on that had my full attention, not to mention very emotional and memorable ones that were hard to find in films that I've watched over the past 2 years. Everyone comes from different backgrounds so obviously not everyone's going to like or dislike the same movie, but I thought this one really had depth and I regret not seeing it in theaters. Peter Jackson's films only get better and better IMO.
