His father and Dwalin have left, and now Thorin faces life in the Shire on his own. Between overheard conversations, continuing tensions with Bilbo, and his quest to find the key to the hobbits’ power, Thorin begins to settle.
But from the distant south unrest spreads.

I like to think Thorin and Dain spent time together pre-Smaug. Dain loves boars so much, he probably carried around his pet pig all the time. Whenever Thorin visited the Iron Hills with his dad, Dain would show off his best pigs and have Thorin ride them.
