If they reach the human settlement of Lake-town it will be time for the hobbit Bilbo Baggins to fulfill his contract with the dwarves. The party must complete the journey to Lonely Mountain and burglar Baggins must seek out the Secret Door that will give them access to the hoard of the dragon Smaug. And, where has Gandalf got off to? And what is his secret business to the south?

I'm dying of thirst over here.

Come on! Come on!

- Here you are.

- Thank you kindly.

- Oh, watch it!

- Sorry, darling.

- There you are.

- Thank you.

Master Stadle.

Mind if I join you?

I'll have the same.

I should introduce myself.

My name is Gandalf.

Gandalf the Grey.

I know who you are.

Well, now. This is a fine chance.

What brings Thorin Oakenshield to Bree?

I received word that my father...

...had been seen wandering...

...the Wilds near Dunland.

I went looking.

I found no sign of him.

Thorin, it's been a long time...

...since anything but rumor was heard...

...of Thrain.

He still lives.

I am sure of it.

My father came to see you

before he went missing.

What did you say to him?

I urged him to march upon Erebor,

to rally...

...the seven armies of the Dwarves...

...to destroy the dragon and take back...

...the Lonely Mountain.

And I would say the same to you.

Take back your homeland.

This is no chance meeting,

is it, Gandalf?

No.

It is not.

The Lonely Mountain troubles me...

...Thorin. That dragon

has sat there long enough.

Sooner or later...

...darker minds will turn towards Erebor.

I ran into some unsavory characters...

...whilst traveling on the Greenway.

They mistook me for a vagabond.

I imagine they regretted that.

One of them was carrying a message.

It is Black Speech.

A promise of payment.

For what?

Your head.

Someone wants you dead.

Thorin, you can wait no longer.

You are...

...the heir to the Throne of Durin.

Unite the armies of the Dwarves.

Together, you have the might and power...

...to retake Erebor.

Summon a meeting

of the seven Dwarf families.

Demand they stand by their oath.

The seven armies swore that oath

to the one who wields the King's Jewel.

The Arkenstone.

It is the only thing that will...

...unite them,

and in case you have forgotten...

...that jewel was stolen by Smaug.

What if I were to help you reclaim it?

How?

The Arkenstone lies half a world away...

...buried beneath the feet

of a fire-breathing dragon.

Yes, it does.

Which is why we're going to need a burglar.

How close is the pack?

Too close. A couple of leagues, no more.

But that's not the worst of it.

- Have the Wargs picked up our scent?

- Not yet. But they will do.

- We have another problem.

- Did they see you?

They saw you.

No, that's not it.

What did I tell you?

Quiet as a mouse.

Excellent burglar material.

Will you listen? Will you just...

...listen?

I'm trying to tell you

there is something else out there.

What form did it take?

Like a bear?

Ye... Yes, but bigger.

Much bigger.

You knew about this beast?

I say we double back.

And be run down by a pack of Orcs?

There is a house...

...it's not far from here,

where we might take refuge.

Whose house?

Are they friend or foe?

Neither.

He will help us or...

...he will kill us.

What choice do we have?

None.

Come on!

This way! Quickly!

Run!

Bombur, come on!

To the house!

Run!

Come on, get inside.

Open the door!

Quickly!

- Push!

- Push!

Dwalin!

Come on, lads!

What is...

...that?

That is our host.

His name is Beorn.

And he's a skin-changer.

Sometimes he's a huge black bear.

Sometimes he's a great strong man.

The bear is unpredictable...

...but the man can be reasoned with.

However...

...he is not overfond of Dwarves.

He's leaving.

Come away from there.

It's not natural. None of it.

It's obvious. He's under some...

...dark spell.

Don't be a fool.

He's under no enchantment but his own.

All right, now get some sleep. All of you.

You'll be safe here tonight.

I hope.

So you are the one they call Oakenshield.
