<!--==Plot==
 +
At [[the Prancing Pony]] Inn in [[Bree]], [[Gandalf]] the Grey warns [[Thorin]] [[Oakenshield]] that someone is trying to have him killed. He persuades Thorin to obtain the [[Arkenstone]] to unite the [[Dwarves]], and suggests that a stealthy burglar may be needed to steal the jewel back from [[Smaug]].
 +
 +
Twelve months later, Thorin and his [[Thorin and Company|Company]] are being pursued by [[Azog]] and his [[Orcs|Orc]] party down the [[Carrock]] following the events of the previous film. After [[Bilbo Baggins|Bilbo]] informs the group that a [[Bears|bear]] is also tracking them, Gandalf ushers them along to the home of a [[Skin-changers|skin-changer]]. Upon their arrival, they are attacked by the same bear; Gandalf reveals that it is the [[Beorn's Hall|home]] [[Beorn]] and that he may be able to aid them in their journey. That night, Azog is summoned to [[Dol Guldur]] by the [[Sauron#Sauron's Return|Necromancer]], and instructs his son [[Bolg]] to take over the hunt for Thorin. The next day, Beorn loans his horses to the company so they reach [[Mirkwood]], and hinder the pursuing Orcs. Upon arrival at the forest border, Gandalf discovers [[Black Speech]] graffiti imprinted on an old ruin, coinciding with a telepathic message from [[Galadriel]] imploring him to investigate the tombs of the [[Nazgûl]] (at an [[High Fells of Rhudaur|unnamed location]]).
 +
Without giving any reason for his sudden departure, Gandalf advises the Company to follow the [[Elves|Elven]] path though Mirkwood, and to wait for him before entering the [[Lonely Mountain]]. But upon losing their way in the forest, the Dwarves are captured by giant [[spiders]]. Bilbo, with the help of his new [[The One Ring|ring]], manages to free them from the webs and names his sword [[Sting]]. However, while fighting the attacking spiders, Bilbo drops the ring, and he begins to learn of the corruption it has on him after brutally killing a crab-like spider to retrieve it.
 +
 +
The Dwarves are captured by the [[Elves of Mirkwood|Wood-elves]], including [[Legolas]] and [[Tauriel]], a captain of the guard. They are to the Elven-king [[Thranduil]]'s [[Elvenking's Halls|kingdom]], and are locked up. During their captivity, a romantic subplot develops between Tauriel and [[Kíli]].
 +
While the others are imprisoned, Thorin is given audience with Thranduil, but he refuses Thranduil's aid and is imprisoned as well. Under the cloak of the ring, Bilbo helps the Dwarves to escape by using empty wine barrels, which are sent floating down the river. Along the way, they are ambushed by Bolg and his Orc party, while the elves pursue the Dwarves to cease their escape. In the ensuing chaos, Kíli is wounded by a Morgul arrow. Legolas and Tauriel are forced to halt their pursuit of the Dwarves in order to end the Orc onslaught. One [[Narzug|captive]] is imprisoned and questioned by Thranduil. When Thranduil learns that "The One" has returned, he decides to seal off his kingdom to protect it from the impending evil. However, Tauriel leaves to save Kíli, whom she learns has been poisoned by the orc's arrow, and Legolas accompanies her.
 +
 +
Subsequently, the Company meets a man named [[Bard]] and bribe him to smuggle them into [[Lake-town]], where the descendants of Dale made their home, and where the [[Master of Lake-town|Master]] of the town rules with an iron fist. The group attempt to steal weapons before being captured and in the process learn that Bard is a descendant of Dale's ruler, [[Girion]], who died attempting to kill Smaug with [[Black Arrow]]s. After Thorin convinces the townfolk and Master that they will share the riches of the recaptured mountain, the adventurers receive a grand send-off. The injured Kíli is ordered to remain behind while [[Óin]], [[Fíli]] and [[Bofur]] remain to tend him in Bard's house.
 +
 +
As the events of Thorin's company occurs, Gandalf reaches the remote tomb of the Nazgûl and found that they have been revived. He is joined by Radagast, and it is revealed that the Necromancer cannot be a mere human as the Nazgûl answer only to one master. Returning to Mirkwood, while sending [[Radagast]] to warn Galadriel of their discovery, Gandalf enters the Orc- and [[Wargs|Warg]]-infested Dol Guldur, and is attacked by Azog. While attempting to escape, the Necromancer appears, and, following a duel between the two, Gandalf is captured. With his worst fears realized – that the Necromancer is indeed Sauron – Gandalf watches in horror as the Orc army marches towards the Lonely Mountain.
 +
 +
Once at the Lonely Mountain, Bilbo deciphers the [[Thrór's Map|map]]'s cryptic clue and uses moonlight to find the hidden keyhole that opens the [[Back Door|secret door]] into the mountain. [[Balin]] then explains Bilbo's real purpose and send him down to the treasury to locate the Arkenstone. Unfortunately, Bilbo's searching quickly awakens Smaug, who initially finds the [[Hobbits|Hobbit]] amusing, but swiftly tires of him and intends to kill him. In Lake-town, Bard hears the rumbling caused by Smaug's awakening and attempts to affix the last Black Arrow to the town's launcher, but is arrested. Óin, Fíli, Bofur, and Bard's daughters, [[Sigrid]] and [[Tilda]], are attacked by Bolg's hunting party before Legolas and Tauriel drive them off, with the latter remaining behind to tend to Kíli. Then, in a dream-like state after his medication, Kíli admits his love for Tauriel. After convincing Thorin that they must help Bilbo, the Dwarves enter the mountain and find themselves and the Hobbit being hunted by Smaug. Tricking the [[Fire-drakes|fire-breathing]] Smaug into rekindling the forges, they attempt to kill the dragon by drowning him in a flood of molten gold. However, Smaug survives, and stumbles out of the mountain determined to make the people of Lake-town suffer for giving aid to the Dwarves, leaving Bilbo horrified at the turn of events.

[edit] Synopsis

“The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” continues the adventure of the title character Bilbo Baggins as he journeys with the Wizard Gandalf and thirteen Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield, on an epic quest to reclaim the Lonely Mountain and the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor. Having survived the beginning of their unexpected journey, the Company continues East, encountering along the way the skin-changer Beorn and a swarm of giant Spiders in the treacherous forest of Mirkwood. After escaping capture by the dangerous Wood-elves, the Dwarves journey to Lake-town, and finally to the Lonely Mountain itself, where they must face the greatest danger of all — a creature more terrifying than any other; one which will test not only the depth of their courage but the limits of their friendship and the wisdom of the journey itself — the Dragon Smaug.''
