Final Deathly Hallows Debates: Unanswered Septology Questions

Like Hogwarts Castle itself, the Harry Potter books hold many mysteries, and have many hidden secrets. Hopefully, most of these mysteries will be answered in the final book. Is something funny going on at St. Mungos? What ever happened to Sirius' two-way mirrors? Where is Fawkes? There are so many others. What mystery are you most looking forward to being answered, and how do you think it will come out?

I'm just wondering, as JK told that movies can foresee what's going to happen in the 6th and 7th books...

On the OOTP movie, parvati and padma patil are placed in one house - Gryffindor. Though we know one of the twins belongs to Ravenclaw, what's the sense of putting both of them in the movies if they're not that important? Wonder what roles this twins play in the 7th book...

When Dumbledore also vanished in the movie (when the MoM tried to arrest him), he bursted into flames with Fawkes... Which confirms our theory that he is "flammable" and highly connected with fire...

Also, i agree with Go Snape Go from Buenos Aires and Susi from Denver. Dolores Umbridge wasn't given justice in the books yet. She was considered comical in the OOTP movie, but I hated her all the while she was there. I know it sounds cruel but i hope she s in the 7th book...

lia16 - For months I thought about Snape being Voldemort's son, too! We get so much information about Eileen Prince in book 6 and she definitely was there at the same time as Voldemort. Unfortunately for that theory, Snape's father is described looking similar to Snape - tall, skinny, and hook-nosed or something which really sounds like he is Snape's father, but I still think something happened between Eileen and Voldemort. Maybe when Snape found out about it that is why he turned spy against Voldemort? JKR said in an interview once that Snape doesn't have much of an excuse for being so nasty, since one person did love him, which you would think would have to be his mother.

Another question - what could the Weasleys have done to have the whole family branded for generations as "blood traitors"?

Susi and parvios - I really liked the movie and I thought Umbridge was scary evil. It would have to be pretty sick comedy to think she was funny.

could it be that Harry end up with Gabrielle (sister from Fleur)? He saved her in the second task - something he would miss, and he "saved" her?!

To all the people that think Dudley do magic. While it would be quite interesting that a Muggle coming from a Wizard-Hating family does Magic I don't think it'll happen because of something J.K said in an interview. When asked "Is there more to Dudley that meets the eye?" J.K. said No and then laughed as if it would be a joke to think that there would be anything more to Dudley.

Sundancer from Ontario:
from reading the book i had the feeling that the potions book was intially Snape's mother Eillen's and he had used it later after her. and it was her that called her self the half-blooded prince.
i might be wrong but this was what i got out of it.
i think it is also intersting that Snape's mother was at hogwarts around the same time that tom riddle was attending it. could something have happened then, could snape have known something important from his mother and relaed it to dumbledore and that might be why Dumbledore trusted him so much.
i'm just thinking out loud...let me knw wht others think about this
PS. i love this site and it is really helping me make the wait till the release of the final book bearable.

Hey funny thing is that in the chess theory Ron is Dumbledore it is mentioned that Dumbledore has blue eyes however the reader does not know the eye color of Ron. It has NEVER been mentioned in the books however in an interview with JK Rowling she said that Ron has BLUE EYES. That just adds more evidence to the fact that Ron is Dumbledore.

George from the Netherlands, I agree with what you say. But remember it isn't blood (as in bloodlines, mudbloods vs. pure, etc.) that matter here--it's love, talent, and in a sense, grace. So I'm thinking, it's not the chemistry of the blood, it's the fact that Harry "gave it" so to speak in an act of bravery and love that matters most. Riddle is a tragic character; if Voldemort is pure evil, it's because he has been tainted by hatred. It's got to be somehow significant (it seems to me) that his desire to conquer can only be achieved via the of others. Because now, even if Harry s (I don't think he , but...)his blood lives on in Voldy. So Voldemort can never really eradicate Harry or Harry's blood without ing himself. And we all know that metaphorically speaking, Harry's "blood" is his ability to love. Or something like that!

parvios from amsterdam:

That was not Phineas Nigellus name burned away but another Phineas (Phineas Nigellus is still on there on the left bottom near the door).

lia16 from Australia:
point 4.
To realize a wizards greatness is not to approve what he did with his greatness. Being great is a somewhat neutral statement about someone, it is what one does with this greatness that matters. I would consider Voldemort a great wizard, I mean, he knows his stuff. Only I would of course never approve of what he does with his greatness.

Well, maybe there is more to get from the movie, maybe not very important, just on sidelines (of whom gets together with whom) but I don't want to spoil it for you, so go watch for yourselves. And oh yeah pay attention to the last few sentences of the movie.

the things i want most to happen in book 7 is for sirius to come back and for the trio to come out of all this as a trio still. and i want dumbledore to come back also. theres a lot of things i want to happen, but i dont think ill be that lucky.
i think snape had a thing for lily potter and we find out about that in book 7 also.
i cant help but wonder whaat happen to the order. any ideas?
Raow from Petaluma: i totally was wondering the same thing! about voldy and elein. but i dont think snape is their son, but i could be wrong. i cant wait to see what happens in book 7 and i be there the minute they open the box!but i honestly think im going to cry if any of the bad things jk could do come true. Particularly harry or ron or hermoine or any of my other faves.

i think that snape and narcissa had a fling at one time. I think this would explain why narcissa was crying all over snape and begging him to look after draco in the beggining of hbp. I think something may have happened between her and lucius and they arent getting along so well sinse he's been in azkaban, or maybe even before. and i think belletrix is jellous and is finding every excuse she can to blame snape of something. just a hunch tho.
i also think that snape may have told bellatrix to sirius because he hated him so much for teasing him and sinse james was already ...(can you tell i hate snape?but you have to admit...i could be right)

harrypotterfan111 - When I first read this theory that Ron takes a time-turner back to become Albus a couple years ago, I laughed. As I read on, there was surprising evidence supporting it - almost as convincing as Dumbledore is not . I was thinking there were too many things that Albus doesn't truly know, though, and then I read this on Jo's website:

"Dumbledore is really Ron/Harry �from the future�

Your inventiveness knows no bounds, and I do not mean that sarcastically; these theories open up exhilarating new vistas of possibility... but they�re wrong. Could it be that by speculating that Harry/Ron becomes Dumbledore, you are seeking reassurance that neither s young?

I�ve also heard a whisper about Ron and Hermione�s son time-traveling, so I shall go further and tell you that NONE of the characters in the books has returned from the future. As for the idea of Ron and Hermione having a son... (chuckles as the distant roars of a million shippers reach my ears, all cursing me to an eternity of unsatisfied curiosity)."

She has debunked this theory. I actually think the similarities are meant to be more symbolic than literal.

How come when Voldemort used the Avada Kedavra on Harry�s parents they just fell to the ground, but when the same curse is used by Pettigrew to Cedric and by Snape to Dumbledore, both Dumbledore and Cedric fly backwards and then hit the ground? Shouldn�t the spell work the same on everyone? Could there be another spell/curse that was used on Harry�s parents instead? Maybe one that was created by Voldemort himself?
