“Then they halted, for the wizard and Bilbo would not enter the wood, even though the king bade them stay a while in his halls (…) Then the elves turned towards the Forest, and Bilbo started on his long road home.”
~The Hobbit, Chapter 18: The Return Journey
So, I didn’t realize that Bilbo did not actually go back through Mirkwood on the way home. Interesting little tidbit there, but he, Gandalf, and Beorn actually take the long way around. Not that I blame them of course…
I don’t care how many reassurances some pretty elf-king gave me. That would be a big steaming pile of NOPE for the rest of my natural life. Like “Thranduil, come closer, I have something important to tell you…”
“…your forest sucks, LOL, #BilbOut.”
See you guys on the other side!
