Final Deathly Hallows Debates: Who Lives and Who Dies?

We know for sure that some characters are going to die in Deathly Hallows. Last year in an interview, J.K. Rowling said that two characters die who she had not originally thought would die in the end of the story. That means at least two characters die, but probably more. And that's probably not counting Harry and/or Voldemort. So who lives and who dies? Tell us who you think will die, and more importantly, why you think so.

I think the idea of neville is ridiculous. First of all, if Neville wasnt good enoiugh to go after as a baby, hes useless now. I believe Severus Snape . There has to be a reason why Dumbledore trusted him so, and when Snape hesitated to Dumbledore until Dumbledoore said Severus please, it made me realize Snape was on Dumbledore's side. When he told the eaters not to Harry, and refused to Harry himself. I think deep down Severus Snape doesn't hate Harry Potter, only wants him to be the best he can be, because of Dumbledore's faith in Harry. I think that harry be in a position with his life at risk, at the hands of Snape and Voldemort. All of the hocruxes have been destroyed, and as voldemort goes to Harry, Snape Voldemort, but there is no chance Snape survive, either Harry him in confusion, or voldemort Snape. Or how cool would it be if Snape makes another Unbreakable vow with Voldemort, that he would never turn from him, or help Harry, and s right after? As for the second person, Ron and Hermione are the classic teen love story, one for the other, who it is is unknown, but id put my money on saying that Ron would do a noble act and save hermione for himself.

I think that Hagrid by going through the veil. (One really powerful spell would have to finish off a half giant!) Moody and Lupin also . (NOOOOOO!) I mean at least some of the order people should . (but I won't want them to!) I also think one or more of the Weasleys . (maybe Mrs. Weasley, Percy, Charlie)
Also Ron saving Hermione finally saying "I love you, Hermione" then .

I notice at the end of the sixth book that Harry strictly believes he has to face Voldemort alone. That said, he's really abandoning the love that Dumbledore insists is the trump card up Harry's sleave that can save everything.

So who s? Harry wont be "pushed" into fighting Voldemort-he's set to do that ever since his private lessons with Dumbledore. Rather I think hese going to be on the verge of losing untill many, if not all of Harry's closest freinds take part in fighting Voldemort in some way. When the one person he cares the absulote most s (Hermoine? Ron? Ginny? NEVILLE?), Harry is gonna lose it and unleash the best magic blast well ever see.

After al this is done, harry have one last job to do. he HIMSELF to eradicate the last horcrux, but in a way that doesnt neccesarily mean he points his wand on himself and snuffs it. it be interesting to see how it all goes down at the end.

I still does't understand why many think that Harry would be the last horcrux? You've got to the person to make a horcrux, or I 'm wrong? Anyway isn't Hermoine a far much better wizard than Malfoy? How could he her?

I think Snape protecting Harry, showing his true alligence, this won't be until the end though.

I think Neville helping Harry to fight Voldemort.

Like most others, I've accepted that Ron, Hermione or Ginny .

Undecided if Harry . Torn between JKR wanting to finish the series with a bang or protecting the memory of Harry for all the generations of readers still yet to read it. Pretty pointless reading them if you know that the hero s at the end, because lets face it, if he does, it become common knowledge e.g. Darth Vader / Luke Skywalker twist from Star Wars, most people know that twist even if they haven't seen the movie...

I predict that Snape . The scene that Cuaron put in the third movie that wasn't in the book is Snape stepping in front of Harry, Ron, Hermione and Snape have a critical role at the last moment in protecting Harry so he can deliver the ing (or humiliating) blow to Voldemort. Remember that Dumbledore has said that there are worse things that can happen to a man that don't necessarily involve ing someone.

Second, I believe that poor Hagrid is finally going to go down. There's a reason that Rowling hasn't 'reinstated' Hagrid into the Magical community despite the fact that book 2 proved his innocence. Hagrid is the last link between the boy Harry was and the man that he become.

Voldemort if he isn't ed be banished, powers stripped (remember Magneto from X-men 3?) or a dementor devour the last fragment of his soul. What an indignity for Voldemort to have to live as a (gasp!) Muggle!

Bellatrix meet her end likely through Neville.

Lupin and Fenrir no doubt have it out...or Lupin/Bill vs. Greyback

In the end...Ron/Hermione live happily ever after, Harry/Ginny maybe but at the very least, Harry becomes the next and PERMANENT Defense against the Dark Arts teacher. Odd how it is that since Voldemort wanted it and cursed it so to speak, Harry fill the void.

yeah i really agree with you Lex. i always had a suspicion that Harry was suicidal.
and i think Seamus trying to protect harry because they are best friends.

Why do people not get that harry's scar is NOT a horcrux. If Voldemort couldn't live in harry (OOP) without excruciating pain. what makes people believe part of voldemort's soul can possibly live inside harry potter all these years?
And why has no one mentioned if fleur delacour is going to live or ? She was good enough to get into the tri-wizard tournament and with her husband to be injured I think she join the Order and Mrs. Weasley probably saving her.

As we speak, there is a "Harry's Wondrous World" theme park being built in Orlando, Florida; JKR is looking forward to a United States tour in October 2007 -- due to these events, I find it hard to accept that she would off Harry, Ron, and/or Hermione in Year 7.

I think that either Ginny or Mrs Weasley are going to as both were very close to Harry.
I also think that Lupin and Snape may . Lupin because he is like a father figure to Harry, one of the only figures like this Harry has left and Snape because I think that he saving Harry from Voldemort.
I think that the trio survive but may be badly hurt. I hope they do survive!

Peter Pettigrew has to cause he owes his life to Harry. I think Severus Snape too, but in the end we all realize that he is REALLY loyal to Dumbledore. Snape save Harry's life, although he loathes him... Hopefully in the end, their hatred with each other diminish.

Hmm.. I don't want anyone of the trio to , but a hazard guess would be Ron. I think the ending of the Harry Potter 7 was clearly depicted on the chess game the the trio played back in the PS/SS book. Ron sacrificed himself for Harry then. (And being Harry's friend and with everything Harry did for the Weasley family, i'm sure Ron sacrifice himself for Harry) Remember also that the queen on that chess game smashed Ron's knight into pieces.. my wild guess is that Bellatrix is that queen and Ron be ed by Lestrange. But in the end, Harry would be able to defeat the king.. Voldemort.

i think maybe snape . maybe wormtail. and voldemort of course... as if he would live...

i dont think harry ... i hope not...

one more thing. i dont think prori incantatem take place between harry and voldemort, because since ollivander was taken, i think maybe he make another wand for voldy, some thing less powerful...
