I think the Battle of the five armies and in particular our charge out of the fortress. We had been waiting two years to do that scene and on the morning we filmed Richard Armitage turned to me and the gleam in his eye said it all. He said to me , “We have been waiting two years to do this and I can see you are ready”. He was so much our king in that single moment. It was like the charge of the Rohirrim in the Return of the King which I was also lucky to be a part of. Just …..well hard to describe, but very emotional.

'No!' said Thorin. 'There is more in you of good than you know, child of the kindly West. Some courage and some wisdom, blended in measure. If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world. But sad or merry, I must leave it now. Farewell!’

Things I’d like to see in TABA:

- Legolas getting into some serious trouble after following Bolg ..alone
- Thranduil being told Legolas is missing/held captive/hurt
- Thranduil levelling Laketown to the ground (and Smaug with it) bc it happened to be on his way to retrieving his little greenleaf
- Embarrassed Legolas
