All right, here it is.

The BIG question, no joke.

I haven't read the book in forever, so that's why I can't answer it, but this reviewer has the same feat I do, that we won't actually see Smaug in all his splendor until the third film. What do you guys think? In spite of the title of the second film, I'm afraid it's going to just tease us.
I think there are two thoughts here. My view is having Smaug die in the second movie exacerbates the "false ending" problem. My view is to have the Necromancer be the villain of the second and Smaug in the third. But, since it's called the Desolation of Smaug, I suspect the second one will be Smaug-heavy.
