Synopsis / Summary The Hobbit: Battle of Five Armies:
Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield and company are still inside the Lonely Mountain as the dragon Smaug flies out to destroy Lake Town for their association with the intruders. Still locked up by the Master of Lake Town, Bard manages to escape and fires upon Smaug. Bain arrives and Smaug taunts them until Bard fires the Black Arrow upon the beast, killing him. While the Master of Laketown is trying to escape while carrying all the gold he took from the town's coffers he ends up getting crushed to death by Smaug's dead body. As Bard tells his people that they will take residence in Dale, Kili confides his love for Tauriel, and the four Dwarves set off in a boat to the Lonely Mountain to meet up with their company. Arriving at Erebor, Kili's group finds Bilbo and learns that Thorin has lost his mind while scouring the gold for the Arkenstone, which is actually on Bilbo's person who is keeping it at Balin's behest. The maddened Thorin proceeds to command the Dwarves to block the gates to prevent anyone from entering or leaving.
Meanwhile, having become a prisoner in Dol Guldur, Gandalf is saved by Galadriel and given to Radagast while Elrond and Saruman hold off the Nazgûl wraiths. But Sauron appeared to them with the Nine at his side. Elrond and Saruman looked in horror as Galadriel takes on the Dark Lord and the Ringwraiths, banishing them out of the fortress. Though Elrond believes they must warn the Free People of the enemy's return, Saruman tells him to take Galadriel to safety while he deals with Sauron. Radagast provides Gandalf a horse and his staff before riding to Dale. At that time, Azog approaches the Lonely Mountain with his vast Orc army while learning from Bolg that an Elf army under Thranduil is also approaching. Azog tells Bolg to head to Gundabad and ready their other army. Following Bolg to the fortress of Gundabad, Legolas and Tauriel see Bolg with a huge Orc army and hundreds of war-bred bats.
When Thranduil's army arrives in Dale, he forges an allegiance with Bard to claim a necklace of white gems from Thorin's treasure. Though Bard attempts to reason with Thorin to avoid further bloodshed, the stubborn Dwarf refuses to listen to his company's dismay. As they prepare for the battle, Thorin acquires Bilbo a mithril vest which the hobbit wore since then. Thorin began to talk like Smaug, telling Bilbo that he will never share the treasure with Bard and Thranduil, not wanting to part any single coin. After Gandalf arrives at Dale, Bilbo sneaks out of the Lonely Mountain to hand the Arkenstone over to Thranduil and Bard. Inside the camp, Thranduil reminds Gandalf that he is the one who started all this and he will finish it. The next day, the elf army and the people of Lake-Town gathered at the entrance of the Lonely Mountain. Thranduil and Bard rides at the front, where Thorin threatens to kill them if they get any closer. Bard unveils the Arkenstone at the gates of Erebor and Thorin learns of Bilbo's actions and almost kills the Hobbit. Luckily, Gandalf approaches at the front with Bard and Thranduil, telling Thorin that Bilbo is his to keep and the other Dwarves hold off their leader so Bilbo can escape down the wall to Gandalf. Then, a dwarf company under Dain Ironfoot II arrives and is about to attack the Elves on Thorin's call, but Azog sends one branch of his army to attack Dain's army. While Thranduil assists Dain's army, Azog sends the rest of his forces to attack Dale with Bilbo, Gandalf, Bard, and the other Elves coming to its defense. Gandalf, Thranduil, Bard, and Dain do the best they can to hold off the Orc armies as more and more come, killing more Dwarves, men, and elves. Meanwhile, Alfrid took a pile of treasure and escapes the battlefield, with Bard permitting him to do so.
Inside the Lonely Mountain, Thorin eventually overcomes his madness. Thorin and company burst out of the Mountain and joined the battle, much to Dain's delight. While the others aid what remains of Dain's forces, Thorin rides towards Ravenhill with Dwalin, Fili, and Kili to kill Azog. At the same time, after being banished by Thranduil despite her and Legolas warning him of Bolg's army, Legolas and Tauriel set off for Ravenhill with Bilbo following to warn the Dwarves of the second Orc army. However, Bilbo ends up being knocked unconscious as Thorin battles Azog to avenge Fili who was killed moments ago by the Defiler while Kili dies protecting Tauriel from Bolg. But after Legolas kills Bolg, the Great Eagles arrived led by Radagast and Beorn to assist in the battle and they quickly decimated the Orc army. When Bilbo has regained consciousness, he finds that Thorin has killed Azog but was mortally wounded in the process and dies soon after making his peace with the Hobbit. Sometime after, a disillusioned Legolas leaves his father to meet up with one of the Dunedain, a man who goes by the name of Strider. Thranduil, after seeing Tauriel kiss the dwarf's dead body, finally accepts Tauriel's love for Kili and agrees with her plan on burying the dwarf.
Bilbo bids his goodbyes to the surviving members of Thorin's company, telling them they are welcome to join him for tea whenever they are in the Shire to which he returns with Gandalf. But as they part on the outskirts of the Shire, though he does not know its true nature. Gandalf knows of the Ring that Bilbo found in the Goblin tunnels before they part ways on good terms. Bilbo's story ends when he returns to Bag End and finds the Sackville-Bagginses are auctioning off his belongings and are about to sell his house. The scene transitions to Bilbo on the day of his 111th birthday when he receives a visit from Gandalf.
