Bilbo was left alone to save the dwarves. He made a plan to get the spiders away from the nests and quickly went back to rescue the dwarves. The dwarves exclaim to Bilbo that because of his actions they stayed alive. Tolkien illustrates this when he states: “They knew only too well that they would soon all have been dead, if it had not been for the hobbit; and they thanked him many times”(166).

Once somewhat recovered, by chance, Scottie sees the object he created walking down the street in the form of Judy Barton. This is when patriarchy appears in the movie.

He uses the sword that he had taken from the elves and kills the spiders, despite his fear of being eaten by them.
