Or, for that matter, when Thorin was picked up in the warg's mouth, yet survived (with a little help from Gandalf.) Hello, puncture wounds? Even if Gandalf revived him (which seems to be the implication), unless he also healed the wounds, Thorin can look forward to dying of sepsis in short order. There's fantasy violence and then there's complete nonsense.
Do dwarfs catch sepsis? Did Gandalf use an anti sepsis spell? Does warg saliva have an antiseptic effect?
It just seems to me that there should be consequences of some
kind to Thorin's injuries. He did get his ass kicked pretty handily.
"Plot armor" is fine as long as it doesn't make itself too obvious, which it sure did here.
