He is warned by Bilbo's shout and manages to avoid capture by the goblins. He follows the goblins and their captives through the mountain. He uses his magic to kill the great goblin and to douse the fire and lights. He then leads them away from the goblins and out of the mountain. Unfortunately, Bilbo is 'lost' in the process.

Yes, in chapter 9 the dwarves (but not Bilbo) were imprisoned by the Wood-elves in Mirkwood forest.

I think Gandalf came to Bilbo to either get a 14 man. (Another reply) Gandalf was helping the dwarves, and he believed that Bilbo could help. However, his help to the dwarves was secondary to his main mission: to get information about Sauron. Sauron is mentioned in the Hobbit, as the Necromancer; in the Lord of the Rings, Gandalf confirms that the "Necromancer" was no other than the old enemy, Sauron.

No, Gandalf never told the dwarves that Bilbo was a spy. He was a good friend of Bilbo's, and they trusted each other.
