Everyone, please let me know what you think we should do next week, because Roshawn is feeling kind of averse to finishing the book and she kind of wants a buffer before the final chapter. Is that something that would interest you, or would you rather we just go right ahead with it so that we can start discussing the series?
This chapter really is an unusual one. Roshawn tells me what she had kind of expected the chapter following Harry’s death to be, and her thoughts are very interesting and not really something I had thought of. She finds this loophole for speaking to Dumbledore one last time to be completely acceptable, and despite how angry she was with him, she finds herself feeling a bit as Harry does…she just can’t stay mad at him.
We find out so much about the reason that things worked out how they did, from Harry winding up in the King’s Cross Station rather than dying and going on right away, to the way his want reacted to Voldemort’s, to what Dumbledore’s real feelings were about his family and Grindelwald. There’s a lot of revelations here, and I can’t wait to finish and get to talking about them even more! Squee!
Enjoy the episode, everyone, and I will see you soon!
