REVIEW: Hogwarts Legacy Is a Well-Built & Easy to Pick Up Exploration of the Wizarding World

Hogwarts Legacy is a successfully immersive recreation of the Wizarding World that works best when it leans into a full sense of exploration.

The Sorcerer’s Stone is one of the most quotable films in the franchise. Being such a young boy introduced to a new world of possibilities, Harry is guided by wise and experienced wizards who help him discover his own path in life. At the same time, the film also sets up the future conflict between Harry and Voldemort by exposing the significance of his parents’ death, creating much meaning to Harry’s life.

“You’re a wizard, Harry.” — Rubeus Hagrid

“I’m a what?!” Yes, Harry, you’re a wizard! The line that started it all, Hagrid visits Harry while the Dursleys are hiding out from owl letters from Hogwarts. Hagrid, without a care in the world what the Dursleys think of him, explains Harry’s magical heritage and that he needs to be attending the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Without Hagrid’s blunt delivery of the line, Harry probably wouldn’t have been as convinced that he possesses magical abilities.

The line itself has become a meme in recent years, with most people commonly spelling the quote as “Yer a wizard, Harry,” to imitate Hagrid’s lovable and recognizable accent.

“It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to your enemies…” — Albus Dumbledore

Albus Dumbledore played by Richard Harris from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to your enemies, but a great deal more to stand up to your friends.

Albus Dumbledore was always there for some wise words, and The Sorcerer’s Stone was the perfect example of this. Dumbledore was Harry’s mentor until his death in later years, using his experience as one of the greatest wizards in history to help Harry through his troubles at Hogwarts.

During the final dinner in the movie, Dumbledore hands out some extra points to the Golden Trio to celebrate their efforts defeating Professor Quirrell (and by extension, Voldemort). But to prove his favoritism to Gryffindor even further, Dumbledore gives Neville Longbottom some points for attempting to stop Harry and his friends from leaving the corridor at night. Dumbledore’s approval solidified Neville, who was rather seen as a cowardly boy, as a rightful member of Gryffindor.

“I’m going to bed before either of you come up with another clever idea to get us killed…” — Hermione Granger

Now if you two don’t mind, I’m going to bed before either of you come up with another clever idea to get us killed — or worse, expelled.

Hermione Granger was always the voice of reason in the Harry Potter franchise, embracing the parental role among the Golden Trio even as a young girl. It wasn’t just her extensive and deep knowledge of wizarding history and lore that got them through sticky situations — it was her practical mindset that erased fear from the children and led them through victory.

In this one line alone, Hermione shows where her priorities lie: school. Yes, getting killed is not ideal, but this is a young girl who believes all of her value lies in grades and has a great fear of failure.

“I’m not going home. Not really.” — Harry Potter

Harry and his owl Hedwig in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

I’m not going home. Not really.

The Harry Potter franchise doesn’t beat around the bush that Harry grew up in an abusive household. His aunt and uncle loathed him, knowing he’d grow up to have magical abilities, and his cousin bullied him. Hogwarts was the first place Harry felt safe in the world, so it’s understandable that he’d never want to leave.

Upon rewatching, it’s incredibly sad that Dumbledore and other people knew that Harry was returning to a family that abuses him every summer. Although it may just seem like a few short months to outsiders, time spent with the Dursleys probably felt like a lifetime for Harry, just waiting until a new year at Hogwarts started again.

Something Evil Has Returned to Hogwarts

Although not the most critically acclaimed, nor a fan favorite among the eight films, The Chamber of Secrets provided some lighthearted humor in a rather grim time at Hogwarts. Harry’s second year proved to be more challenging than the first when Tom Riddle’s spirit helped Ginny Weasley open the Chamber of Secrets, an ancient legend at Hogwarts. As an attack on muggle-borns emerge, Harry looks to his allies for help, while also learning more about the magical world.

“What exactly is the function of a rubber duck?” — Arthur Weasley

arthur weasley

Now, Harry you must know all about Muggles. Tell me, what exactly is the function of a rubber duck?

Harry was introduced to almost all the Weasley family members this film, who didn’t play a huge part in the first movie. They only briefly knew him, but Molly and Arthur Weasley looked after Harry like he was their own, and he finally felt like he was part of a family.

When he meets Arthur for the first time, Harry’s a little taken aback about Arthur’s inquiry about rubber ducks. The strong curiosity in such a mundane object in the muggle world proves that it’s like a rare artifact to wizards.

“Why couldn’t it be ‘Follow the butterflies’?” — Ron Weasley

Ron and Harry looking terrified in the Chamber of Secrets

Why spiders? Why couldn’t it be ‘Follow the butterflies’?

It’s a running joke from here on out that Ron Weasley isn’t the biggest fan of spiders, and this fear is actually used against him in future installments by dark magic. But this moment in the second movie is a hilarious way to let the comic relief side character have his chance to shine, while also exposing some of his weaknesses.

Harry and Ron are tasked by Hagrid to follow the spiders in the Dark Forest. There they would find Aragog, who was accused of being the murderous monster in the Chamber of Secrets, which resulted in Hagrid’s expulsion from the school. But Aragog tells Harry and Ron the truth of his innocence. Even if Ron was terrified of the giant insects, he was willing to overcome his fear like a true Gryffindor to get the truth once and for all. This quote definitely goes down in history as one of the funnier Harry Potter quotes.

“I didn’t know you could read.” — Draco Malfoy

“Reading? I didn’t know you could read.”

What’s great about this one line is that Tom Felton, Draco Malfoy’s actor, improvised this line as just a child actor. It ended up being one of the most hilarious lines in the entire franchise, not only showing Draco’s wit but his cruel nature that he picked up from his parents.

Draco is the cookie-cutter bully during Harry’s time at Hogwarts, and picked up a few followers of his own, creating a clique of Slytherins. When Harry and Ron are disguised as Crabbe and Goyle, his two most loyal followers, Draco takes a shot at Goyle’s intelligence to show his superiority over the boy.

“Let us hope that Mr. Potter will always be around to save the day.” — Lucius Malfoy

Let us hope that Mr. Potter will always be around to save the day.

If Draco wasn’t enough to handle at Hogwarts, now Harry has to deal with his entitled father, Lucius. The head of the Malfoy family, Lucius never tries to hide the fact that he hates the young boy simply because Voldemort does. It’s a wonder Lucius was never under Ministry watch for attempting to murder Harry on school grounds.

Before the attempted murder though, Lucius sarcastically remarks to Dumbledore about Harry’s heroic acts. The line also points out the plot in almost every Harry Potter movie in a meta way, as Harry is always the hero that saves the day.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban’s Biggest Changes From Book to Film

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was a faithful adaptation of its source material, but the movie couldn’t help but make a few changes.

The Prisoner of Azakaban is deemed by many as the best installment of the Harry Potter franchise, thanks to its darker and more mature tone, and Alfonso Cuarón’s gorgeous direction. It’s the beginning of the coming-of-age saga in Harry Potter as the Golden Trio become teenagers and start to deal with adult problems. The notorious “killer” Sirius Black escapes from Azkaban, just as the soul-sucking Dementors and mysterious new teacher Remus Lupin find their way to Hogwarts.

“You foul, loathsome, evil little cockroach!” — Hermione Granger

You foul, loathsome, evil little cockroach!

Hermione had a reputation for being the judgmental bookworm of the group. She had the answers for everything, and was a relatively sweet girl who was bullied by Slytherins because of her muggle-born status. That is until she proved she wasn’t a girl to be messed with.

When the group learns that Draco told his father about the incident with Buckbeak, which meant the harmless creature would be executed, Hermione confronts Draco with these mighty words. She chooses not to use a hex on him to not stoop to his level, but instead punches Draco in the face when he mocks her.

“I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.” — Fred & George Weasley

A view of the Marauder's Map as it opens

I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

A quote that sparked a thousand tattoos and a song of the same name, this saying was the key to revealing the Marauders Map, which allowed the user to track any person on Hogwarts grounds. Fred and George Weasley give Harry the map to find his way into Hogsmeade, but Harry would use it throughout all his time at Hogwarts.

The map was created by Harry’s father James, and his three friends, whom they named themselves the Marauders. The password to the map reflected their mischievous antics during their time as students.

“Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times…” — Albus Dumbledore

Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, when one only remembers to turn on the light.

Albeit a little cheesy, Dumbledore’s line about finding light in the darkness does highlight the thematic elements of Prisoner of Azkaban. With a new director on board, it was the first movie in the franchise that felt a bit more mature in style and story. Dumbledore’s welcoming speech to Hogwarts students is just preparing them for a dark year ahead of them.

With soul-sucking dementors guarding the school and a supposed serial killer on the loose, Dumbledore must have felt a little pressure to at least give the kids a heads-up that this year wouldn’t be like the rest. And while it may not have been an intentional connection, this quote does foreshadow Dumbledore’s Deluminator gift to Ron after he passes, which he uses to find Hermione and Harry in Deathly Hallows – Part 1.

“Twelve years of it! In Azkaban!” — Sirius Black

Sirius Black confronting the Golden Trio and Peter in the Shrieking Shack

I did my waiting! Twelve years of it! In Azkaban!

Before it’s revealed that Peter Pettigrew was the one who betrayed Harry’s parents, Sirius was framed for killing 12 Muggles, which was also Peter’s fault. Sirius waited 12 years in Azkaban to avenge Lily and James, and to prove his innocence.

But at the time of this quote, Harry believes that Sirius’ main goal was to kill him. Gary Oldman’s unstable and emotional portrayal of Sirius temporarily sells the idea that he’s a heartless murderer on the verge of cracking.

Everything Is About to Change

The Goblet of the Fire marked the end of the innocent era of Harry Potter, and was the beginning of a darker one. At first glance, it appeared that the film strayed away from the traditional storyline of just following Harry and his friends by introducing new schools and students. But by the end, the Triwizard Tournament was entirely insignificant in the grand scheme of things when Voldemort rises from the dead and witnessing Cedric Diggory’s death left a profound effect on Harry’s life.

“We must all face the choice between what is right and what is easy.” — Albus Dumbledore

No spell can reawaken the dead, Harry. I trust you know that. Dark and difficult times lie ahead. Soon we must all face the choice between what is right and what is easy.

Harry has just seen Voldemort return and a fellow student being murdered before his eyes, but the press don’t believe him out of fear that it’s true. Dumbledore, though, knows that Harry’s telling the truth because he’s seen this coming for a while.

This quote is incredibly moving, especially for fans who have seen the last film. Dumbledore has secretly known for years that in order to defeat Voldemort, Harry must die. This quote acts as foreshadowing for Harry’s decision to die by Voldemort’s hands in order to kill the part of the soul that lives inside him.

“Did you put your name in the Goblet of Fire?!” — Albus Dumbledore

Michael Gambon, Beloved Harry Potter Star, Dies at 82

Michael Gambon, well known for his role as Dumbledore in six of the eight Harry Potter films, has passed away.

Harry! Did you put your name in the Goblet of Fire?!

This one scene wasn’t intended to be humorous, but its contradiction to the book scene made it so. After Harry’s name shoots out of the Goblet of Fire, Dumbledore confronts him by slamming him against the wall and yelling at him if he submitted his name.

Fans have pointed out the stark differences between how movie Dumbledore and book Dumbledore confronted Harry. Book Dumbledore “calmly” approached Harry to ask him, whereas movie Dumbledore goes off the rails. Perhaps Michael Gambon took some creative liberty with the throwaway line, and it ended up being one of the most iconic lines in the franchise.

“Besmirching that name by behaving like a babbling, bumbling band of baboons!” — Minerva McGonagall

The house of Godric Gryffindor has commanded the respect of the wizarding world for nearly ten centuries. I will not have you, in the course of a single evening, besmirching that name by behaving like a babbling, bumbling band of baboons!

Professor McGonagall stood her ground for the entirety of Harry’s time at Hogwarts. Other than Dumbledore, she was a role model to Gryffindors and set them straight when she discovered any high jinks or silliness.

The Yule Ball was a chance for every school participating in the Triwizard Tournament to show off their good graces, and it’s not an understatement to say Hogwarts fell behind on its professional reputation compared to Durmstrang and Beauxbatons. With pranksters and foolish students among the Gryffindor house, Professor McGonagall needed to make it clear that no one was going to destroy the house’s name at one of the most prestigious events in the wizarding community.

“I’ve killed Harry Potter!” — Neville Longbottom

Oh my god! I’ve killed Harry Potter!

Give it up for Neville to make the Triwizard Tournament all about himself. To be fair, he really did think he killed the Chosen One and would’ve faced serious repercussions for doing so, but Harry was also participating in a tournament to the death. But Neville was an anxious boy before becoming a professor; he always assumes the worst first.

Thankfully, the gillyweed Neville gave Harry didn’t actually cause him to drown. It actually helped Harry rescue Ron and Gabrielle Delacour in a courageous moment, which wasn’t required of him in the second task.

10 Order of the Phoenix Members Who Sacrificed the Most in Harry Potter

These Order of the Phoenix members sacrificed their families, their lives, and even their sanity to fight Lord Voldemort.

Voldemort’s resurrection in the previous film left the Wizarding World in shock. Harry’s closest allies, many of whom were a part of the Order of the Phoenix, are plotting how to defeat Voldemort. Others, such as the Ministry of Magic and the press, are choosing to ignore Harry’s warning and pretending like everything is normal. A new Defense of the Dark Arts teacher Professor Umbridge slowly overtakes the school and applies her abusive practices to assert the Death Eaters’ control. With strict guidelines they must follow, Harry secretly creates Dumbledore’s Army so students are well-prepared when the fight against Voldemort arrives.

“If they can do it, why not us?” — Harry Potter

Working hard is important, but there’s something that matters even more. Believing in yourself. Think of it this way: Every great wizard in history has started out as nothing more than we are now. Students. If they can do it, why not us?

As the most qualified and experienced of students in Defense Against the Dark Arts, Harry takes it upon himself to teach fellow students how to protect themselves. With Dumbledore being absent, Harry fills the Headmaster’s shoes by applying his own bright knowledge.

Just like Harry and his friends, wizards like Dumbledore were students at one point in their life. But what sets Dumbledore apart from the rest is that he’s confident in his abilities and never shows self-doubt. That confidence is what’s helped him defeat dark wizards like Gellert Grindelwald and Lord Voldemort, and this growth mindset is what will help current students in the future.

“Nice one, James!” — Sirius Black

Sirius Black dying in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Some viewers might not catch this line at first glance. When the Order of the Phoenix arrive to help Harry and his friends fight against Death Eaters at the Ministry of Magic, Harry chooses to stick by Sirius’ side. Using what he learned in class, Harry disarms Lucius Malfoy, to which Sirius responds, “Nice one, James!”

In his final moments, Sirius saw Harry as his former friend James Potter, who were thick as thieves. For a slight second, Harry felt pride in being recognized as his father and having a supportive godfather like Sirius.

“I’m quite proud to be their son.” — Neville Longbottom

I’m quite proud to be their son. But I’m not sure I’m ready for everyone to know just yet.

Before Order of the Phoenix, Neville was always the goofy, forgetful kid who everyone secretly wondered how he managed to get into Gryffindor. But when he briefly tells Harry his backstory during one of the training sessions, it all starts to click.

Neville tells Harry that Bellatrix Lestrange tortured his parents so far to the point they weren’t the same people they knew before. His parents were part of the original Order of the Phoenix, and Neville takes up their bravery by being one of Harry’s steadiest supporters when no one else believed him.

“We’ve got one thing that Voldemort doesn’t have…” — Harry Potter

Dumbledores Army standing in the Room of Requirement in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Even though we’ve got a fight ahead of us, we’ve got one thing that Voldemort doesn’t have… Something worth fighting for.

Voldemort is considered one of the greatest villains of film history, but it’s worth taking a look at why he failed so terribly. He had all the power in the world, manipulated hundreds to thousands of wizards to turn to the dark side, yet a teenager defeated him. Where did everything go so wrong for him?

Harry figured it out quite early after having a run-in with Voldemort at the Ministry of Magic. Voldemort’s ambition is purely world domination and power. He has no personal stake in this fight. Unlike him, Harry’s fighting to protect his friends and innocent wizards. Fighting for love trumps fighting for power any day.

The Half-Blood Prince took a little bit of a pause after the events of The Order of the Phoenix. The sixth film in the franchise, it mainly follows the Golden Trio as they explore love and the danger that comes along with attending Hogwarts. On the side, Harry and Dumbledore work together to retrieve a memory from Professor Slughorn, as Harry is also learning more about the cryptic Half-Blood Prince.

“Why is it, when something happens, it is always you three?” — Minerva McGonagall

Minerva McGonagall from Harry Potter

Why is it, when something happens, it is always you three?

This quote pretty much summarizes the entirety of the Harry Potter franchise. After witnessing Katie Bell get possessed at Hogsmeade, Harry, Ron and Hermione are called into questioning by Professor McGonagall. She’s astounded that once again, the three have found themselves at the wrong place at the wrong time.

The line not only reiterates that, although Harry is a common target in the Wizarding community, he and his friends somehow always get involved when it’s not necessary.

“I’m the Half-Blood Prince.” — Severus Snape

You dare use my own spells against me, Potter? Yes. I’m the Half-Blood Prince.

Harry had been fascinated by this so-called Half-Blood Prince for school year after finding his spells in an old potions textbook. The added notes have helped him get to the top of his potions class, but using one of the spells on Draco Malfoy ended up almost killing him.

Professor Snape reveals himself as the Half-Blood Prince after Harry attempted to use the Sectumsempra spell on him, which Snape immediately blocked. This petrifying confrontation comes after Snape kills Dumbledore in the most shocking twist of the series so far, and Harry is now under full belief that Snape is a Death Eater with years of dark magic under his belt.

“Otherwise, the bowl will remain empty… forever.” — Harry Potter

Harry Potter talking to Slughorn in the Half Blood Prince

Otherwise, she died for nothing. Otherwise, the bowl will remain empty… forever.

Dumbledore tasks Harry the tricky mission of gaining a memory from Professor Slughorn in The Half-Blood Prince. Slughorn holds the key to understanding how Voldemort gained knowledge of horcruxes, and how many he made exactly. But Slughorn’s guilt in teaching Tom Riddle about horcruxes holds him back from revealing anything.

Slughorn’s pet fish that Lily Potter gifted him went missing on the day of her death, and felt responsible for her and James’ death. But Harry tries to convince him to rise above his cowardice to help Harry defeat Voldemort once and for all, so that Lily didn’t die in vain.

“But I am the Chosen One.” — Harry Potter

Harry, Dumbledore, Ron and Hermione in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

At least in the most perilous time of modern Wizarding World history, Harry still has a sense of humor about his situation. Harry’s in the most danger out of everyone in the Wizarding World, and perhaps the only way to cope with this fact is to joke about it. Yes, he is the Chosen One, but at least he can get a date out of it.

This lighthearted moment between Harry and Hermione, in which she smacks his head with a paper after he jokes about taking advantage of his title as the Chosen One, was certainly needed in one of the darkest films of the franchise. The playful moment goes down as one of the funniest moments in the Golden Trio’s friendship.

The beginning of the end, Deathly Hallows – Part 1 is the only movie in the franchise to not take place in Hogwarts. Harry, Ron and Hermione instead ditch their last year to look for the remaining Horcruxes in order to defeat Voldemort once and for all. But the overwhelming pressure, and failure to retrieve most of the items, causes a rift between the friends. The movie doesn’t shy away from displaying mature scenes that include torture, and the loss of an iconic character that no one was ready to let go of.

“Such a beautiful place, to be with friends.” — Dobby

Harry cradles Dobby's body in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1.

Such a beautiful place, to be with friends. Dobby is happy to be with his friend.

Dobby the house elf was a creature introduced in the second movie, and didn’t have much of a role until Deathly Hallows – Part 1. Dobby was always eager to help Harry for freeing him years ago, and paid him back in full by rescuing him and his friends from Malfoy Manor.

The rescue mission, however, came at a grave sacrifice. Dobby was killed by Bellatrix Lestrange and died in Harry’s arms at the beach. The last words he spoke to Harry was that he was grateful to be surrounded by friends in a beautiful place, keeping the optimistic attitude that Harry failed to have during the entire movie. As one of the most profound Harry Potter quotes about death, the emotions running through this scene were compelling. Dobby represented an innocent victim of war who didn’t deserve his fate.

“Ron, you don’t have a wife.” — Harry Potter

Deathly Hallows Elizabeth Cattermole Kissing Ron Weasley

Ron, you don’t have a wife.

Deathly Hallows – Part 1 was a pretty grim installment of the Harry Potter series. Ron’s jealously grew into a rageful hatred toward Harry and Hermione, as he also worried about his family potentially getting hurt for being associated with Harry. Voldemort’s control over the wizarding world grows more every day as he takes over the Ministry of Magic.

Harry, Ron and Hermione’s expedition as Ministry workers provided humor to lighten the terrorizing prospect of being caught by Death Eaters. In one scene, Ron is so fully into character that he begins to worry about his persona’s wife after being threatened.

“Dobby never meant to kill!” — Dobby

Dobby using magic at Malfoy Manor in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1

Dobby never meant to kill! Dobby only meant to aim or seriously injure!

Before Dobby’s death, he manages to churn out more iconic lines that fans will remember for a lifetime. In the midst of danger and chaos, Dobby proves he’s still an innocent house elf who’s just trying to help his friends. But maybe he should’ve chosen a better choice of words.

Dobby drops a chandelier on Bellatrix Lestrange in order to give Hermione a chance to escape following one of the darkest storylines in the franchise. When Bellatrix retaliates that he could’ve killed her, he sweetly responds that he really didn’t want to kill anyone — just seriously injure enough to give Hermione a window to run. Only Dobby could add this type of comedic effect during a harrowing scene.

REVIEW: Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows – Part 2

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 serves as a perfect close to a film franchise that’s captivated fans for 10 years.

The final installment of the franchise led to many revelations that were full of inspiring and heartbreaking moments. Harry faces Voldemort one last time as the dark lord brings the fight to Hogwarts, forcing everyone to fight in the ultimate war for freedom. Although the good guys win in the end, it came at the cost of several lives who were willing to put their lives on the line. It was the perfect conclusion to a saga that people grew up with, making it emotionally difficult to part ways with these beloved characters.

“Harry Potter, the boy who lived… come to die.” — Lord Voldemort

Harry Potter, the boy who lived… come to die. Avada Kedavra!

Dumbledore’s hidden mission to prepare Harry for his death finally comes into play in the final movie. Harry learns that when Voldemort initially tried to kill Harry as a baby, Lily’s love protected Harry. The spell backfired, and instead Voldemort accidentally created a Horcrux that remained inside Harry.

The quote itself is a tragic reminder that Harry was only just a boy. He was only 17-years-old, but had lived a life of a fully grown person. He was a child fighting an adult’s war, and was willing to sacrifice himself to save the best of humanity. No child should ever have to make that decision, but it shows that Harry was a better person than Voldemort could ever be, which is why he ended up surviving in the end.

“Always.” — Severus Snape

Snape’s undying love for Lily was so strong that he made it his life’s mission to protect Harry for her. It was when Snape showed disgust in Dumbledore’s ultimate plan for Harry that he revealed his patronus was the same as Lily’s, which represents a kind of love so few wizards have. Dumbledore seem surprised by this, asking that even years after her death if he still had affection for her. Snape replied with, “Always.”

Aside from Voldemort, Snape was always seen as the ultimate bad guy in the series, but his true colors were revealed in the end. He dedicated his life to living as a spy for Dumbledore, and ended up dying as a lie. The quote is especially powerful because Snape only had to say one word to show his true reason for living, making this one simple word one of the most powerful Harry potter quotes about life.

“Not my daughter, you bitch!” — Molly Weasley

Not my daughter, you bitch!

Molly Weasley was the surrogate mother Harry never had, and always showed love and kindness toward him and all her children. She provided a safe space for Harry, one where he felt like he didn’t constantly have to look over her shoulders. But when someone dares to disrupt that safe space or hurt one of her children, that’s when she unleashes her inner mama bear.

Molly confidently screams this at Bellatrix after she attempted to kill Ginny, Molly’s youngest and only daughter. Molly then proceeds to kill Bellatrix, a feat that no one thought was possible. But Bellatrix underestimated the power of a mother’s love, and all the deaths and pain she caused in her lifetime were finally avenged.

“When have any of our plans ever actually worked?” — Harry Potter

When have any of our plans ever actually worked? We plan, we get there, all hell breaks loose!

The downside of relying on three teenagers to save the world is that they really don’t know what they’re doing. Even with Hermione, the brightest witch of her age, the Golden Trio were working off their wits and Dumbledore’s not-so-clear instructions.

After Harry, Ron and Hermione barely escape Gringott’s Bank alive, the three debate what to do next. They know the next horcrux is at Hogwarts, but it’s controlled by Death Eaters. Hermione suggests making another plan to safely enter the premises, but as Harry points out, all their planning goes out the window because nothing goes according to plan. At this point, it’s best to just work off their instincts and hope for the best.
