PLOT (spoiler alert!!!):
The dragon Smaug destroys Laketown, while Tauriel escorts Fili, Kili, Oin, Bofur and Bard’s children out of the burning town on a boat. Bard breaks out of his prison cell and kills Smaug with the black arrow, and the dragon’s falling corpse crushes and kills the fleeing Master of Laketown. The survivors choose Bard as their new leader, who then decides the Laketown people should head for the ruins of Dale for refuge. Kíli confesses his love for Tauriel, and he and the other Dwarves journey to reunite with their company at the Lonely Mountain while Tauriel travels to investigate Mount Gundabad with Legolas. Upon arriving at Erebor, they are informed by Bilbo that Thorin has been afflicted with Smaug’s “dragon sickness” as he searched for the Arkenstone. It is revealed that Bilbo actually stole the Arkenstone from Smaug but knows it should be hidden from Thorin.
