Depends. If Bilbo had willingly given up the ring, Gollum might have been to distracted with the return of "His Precious" to hurt Bilbo. If Bilbo fought for it though, Gollum would without a doubt have killed him in some gruesome manner.

How does Gollum guess that Bilbo has his ring?

Bilbo and Gollum enter into a riddle game. While trying to think of a riddle, Bilbo is fiddling around in his pocket, and he happens to feel the ring he had just picked up. He didn't think much about picking it up, so, while, trying to come up with a riddle, he mumbled, "What do I have in my pocket?" In spite of this not being a proper riddle for the riddle game, Gollum accepted it and asked for and received 3 tries to answer it. He failed, then went back to get the ring from where he thought he'd hidden it (actually, it had fallen off without his noticing). When he saw the ring was gone and remembered Bilbo's odd question, he put 2 and 2 together and deduced Bilbo had the ring in his pocket.I believe it was when Bilbo couldn't come up with a riddle, so he thought out loud the question: "What have I got in my pocket?" After Gollum realized he didn't have his ring, he then supposed that it was, indeed, in Bilbo's pocket.Because Gollum found him and would not tell him the way out until Bilbo gave him the Ring and Bilbo would not give him the ring untless he answered the riddles correctly.Gollum and bilbo have a game of riddles, bilbo asks, "what have I got in my pockets?" He gives Gollum 3 guesses, and gollum guesses all three wrongGollum asks Bilbo what he does have in his pocket, and bilbo refuses to tell him, multiple timesGollum discovers HE, (himself), has lost the ring and goes into a state of panic. Gollum then remembers the riddle, "What do I have in my pocket?" and after guessing wrong he assumes it's the ring, and gollum tries to attack BilboHope this helpedJackI believe it was when Bilbo couldn't come up with a riddle, so he thought out loud the question: "What have I got in my pocket?"

How are Bilbo and Gollum different?

Gollum was first known as smeagul but once he found the ring and killed his brother he was then known as Gollum (he got this name when the ring took controlled of him and he started making the chocking noise sounding like the word Gollum). He had the one ring for hundreds of years giving him unnatural long life. He became fixed on the ring and would kill anyone who would take it like he tried to do to Bilbo once he noticed he had lost it. Gollum would not give the ring up easily and tried to take it from Frodo in The Lord Of The Rings. Bilbo had it for much shorter time, so part of his own mind was still in control and was not as obbsessed with the ring as Gollum, and was able to find the will to give it up and pass it on to his adopted heir, Frodo Baggins.

At the end of The Two Towers why did Gollum turn evil again?

Because Frodo deceived him into following him which resulted in Gollum getting caught by Farimir. Gollum didn't know that Frodo had to do it or Farimir's men would have killed him. This act by Frodo angered Gollum because he didn't' understand what was happening, and Gollum's bad side came back.

Why does Gollum go back to his island in 'The Hobbit'?

After the riddle game in The Hobbit, Gollum went back to his small under-ground island where he lived to retrieve his one precious possession, the One Ring. He was planning on putting the Ring on, thus turning invisible, and then he decided that he would sneak back, still invisible, and attack Bilbo and kill him. However, Gollum had left the Ring in the goblin tunnel, where Bilbo had found it, so of course the Ring was not on Gollum's island when he went in search of it.

Why doesn't Bilbo tell Gandalf and the dwarves about the magic ring?

There were two editions of The Hobbit that were written. Prior to the Lord of the Rings, the ring itself had no history, and so Bilbo actually did reveal that he obtained the ring from Gollum. Later, when the Ring's malevolent history was dabbled into, Tolkein realized Gollum would never give up the ring willingly, and re-wrote the chapter in later editions to reflect that Bilbo more or less stole the ring. Canonically, Bilbo told Gandalf and the Dwarves that it was a prize for winning the riddle game. Gandalf had his suspicions, however, and managed to get the true story from Bilbo much later. The fact that Bilbo would lie about the entire incident struck Gandalf as alarming, since Hobbits weren't prone to such things as lying. One might say that the reason Bilbo lied was due to the effect that the Ring was having on him.

What would happen if Gollum had met Wormtongue?

They would have probably become fast friends, and Wormtongue would have probably helped Gollum steal the ring. Then Gollum would probably have fought with Grima Wormtongue for the ring and Gollum would probably have killed Grima and won, but later die from internal bleeding because of the fight.

What is the significance of Gollum's role in The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings?

Goodness!! Even though Gollum is a complete horrible nuisance, a stinker and a slinker in Sam's words, without him, The Ring would never have passed to Bilbo, and then it wouldn't have gone to Frodo, and he wouldn't have been able to destroy it, and even if Frodo did get The Ring to Mount Doom, Gollum wouldn't be there to wrestle it from him and plunge into the fiery depths, poor Frodo would have gone mad, and Sauron would get The Ring back eventually, which would probably kill Frodo, and even Sam, and the world would be destroyed, and everyone would be killed, and, and... etc.
