Hobbit Plot Diagram
Transcript of Hobbit Plot Diagram
Jordan Roncal Long before they've been separated due to being ambushed by the spiders, Thorin was capture by the King of Wood Elf. The King had asked for Thorin to state his business in being in the woods, disturbing the King's people. Although Thorin's statements were entirely true, the King thought it was nothing but fabrication. As a result, Thorin is sent to prison in the deepest caves possible, yet is served greatly and given a place to rest until he "decides to tell the truth." Rising Action As the group of dwarves and Bilbo search for Thorin, they too are ambushed by the Wood Elfs and taken to the King. All of them except for Bilbo, who's ring had slipped on his finger when the wood elves surprised them. Being told the great gate's the only way into the palace, Bilbo's shocked to see another way in; a stream pouring out from the lowest regions of the palace. He later enters the palace through the great gates while the wood elves reentered the palace. Climax While the guard and butler were passed out due to the fine wine they had drank, Bilbo snatched the keys from the guard and released all 12 dwarves and Thorin for the cell. Feeling sorry for the guard, Bilbo placed the keys back onto him; he's in enough trouble as it is. Bilbo remembered the empty barrels floating out of the stream and quickly got each dwarf in each empty barrel. When two wood elves arrive to assist the butler with the empty barrels, they are confused because they've felt heavy. Being as careless and impatience as possible, the butler said they were empty, so the wood elves rolled the dwarf-filled barrels to the stream. Amazed and distracted by his great work and achievement, he had forgotten to place himself into an empty barrel. There was one last barrel being rolled out, he caught hold of it before the hatch had closed. Falling Action Now the dwarves and Bilbo had escaped the Wood Elf palace and headed towards Lake Town. As they reach Lake Town, Bilbo opened each barrel to release the cramped dwarves. Arriving on the bridge they've been surrounded by Lake Town guards asking for the party to state their business. Thorin, pridefully, let his name be known and demanded to see the Master of Lake Town. Rising Action The people of the town are shocked and quickly do their best to feed the King of the Mountain. Bilbo, Thorin, and the rest of the company slowly gain their lost weight back, along with some new gear and horses. The group has replenished spirits from the nights at the Lake Town, and set out toward the Lonely Mountain. They encounter the door leading into the mountain, but don't know how to get in. Bilbo, being observant, remembers the clue on the map, and at sunset, the group enters through the doorway into the mountain. Rising Action Bilbo sneaks into the heart of the mountain, with his ring of invisibility. There, he finds the dragon that calls himself the "King under the Mountain", Smaug. Smaug isn't able to see him, and Bilbo takes a chalice from the mountains of gold surrounding the dragon back to the dwarves. He comes back later on, and Smaug is able to smell him out. From there, the two have a conversation, talking in riddles and on guard. Bilbo escapes before he could be roasted, and Smaug flies off to eat their steeds, sealing them into the mountain without escape. Climax Lake Town was entering a lazy, peaceful dusk when Smaug first attacked. They saw his large shape from quite a distance away, and the guards of the town moved in with their bows, with Bard leading them into battle. The men fought bravely against the dragon, who was destroying buildings with fire. Soon, the town was ablaze with light and fire, and many citizens were dead, wounded, or in the water. The boats were filled with many of the children, women, and elderly. Most men were swimming for it when they saw that all was lost, except for the captain of the guard, Bard. He saw the weakness of Smaug, a hole in his scaly hide on his chest, and fired his last arrow at it. The dragon, who was mortally wounded by this, dove into the deep waters of the lake, never to be seen again. The townspeople, while saddened by the losses of their town, livelihoods, and neighbors, were glad to still have their lives, all thanks to Bard. From here, they started to rebuild with the help of the elves, and Bard was called a hero among many. Falling Action The humans and elves marched up Lonely Mountain, with their small armies in tow, to ask Thorin to give a share of his gold to help the reconstruction of Lake Town. Thorin, greedy with all his treasure, turned their request down, and tension soon rose with this turn of events. Thorin sent for reinforcements from his family, as he sensed that a fight was soon near. Bilbo, being a thief, took Thorin's prized treasure, the Arkenstone, and gave it to Bard and the Elvenking, telling them to use it as a negotiation for their gold. Thorin finds out and declares Bilbo a traitor. As soon as this occurs, the Goblins from the Misty Mountains came upon the elves, humans, and dwarves. This sudden event triggered a hasty alliance between the three, and the War of the Five Armies started. The war ensued, and Bilbo, being unaware, was knocked out. While he was unconscious, the alliance was losing ground, until the Lord of the Eagles and his followers came to their aid. This helped the alliance gain the upper hand, and they ran the few surviving goblins out. Resolution When Bilbo woke up, he was faced with a revelation that he never expected to hear. Thorin Oakshield was mortally wounded, and Fili and Kili passed away. Thorin apologized to Bilbo with his last remaining breaths, and soon he was no more. His memory lasted in many minds of the warriors. Bilbo and Gandalf said their farewells to the elves, humans, and eagles, and slowly made their way home. Gandalf had business to take care of, and bid Bilbo farewell in front of the town where this adventure started. When Bilbo was spotted, the town was shocked, because many believed him dead. The town was auctioning his possessions off, including his home. So after kicking his cousins out and getting his possessions back, Bilbo returns to his comfy little hole, taking note of the fact that he became a wiser, more courageous Hobbit throughout this adventure, and tied his loose ends with the rest of the dwarves, humans, and elves many years later. The End
