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.

Reader Comments: (Page 61)

Voldemort have to by the end. That's a given.
I have a feeling that the ending be open ended in that you not know if Harry is alive or in the end. Just "Harry's scar burned bright red" type of comment. Rowling may leave it up to the reader(s) to debate if Harry is alive or in the end.

My predictions of the to list:
1. Voldemort
2. McGonagall
3. Draco
4. Kreacher

Another thing I thought of, is Dumbledore and Snape made an Unbreakable Vow after Snape turned back to the good side, something along the lines of "you do your utmost to keep Harry Potter alive". I think only that can justify Dumbledore's unwavouring trust of Snape.

I think the room in the department of mysteries may come into it, but possibly not the location of the final battle. I picture it either being at Godric's Hollow or Hogwarts.

Also, why do you think Dumbledore was so adamant on Harry returning to Privet Drive? I think there is something about Petunia that be revealed very early on. Also him telling Harry this before he d lends weight to the theory that Dumbledore planned his own . The idea that Dumbledore is a horcrux is an intriguing on, and in fact he could be a decendant of Ravenclaw.

I believe that Harry and Voldemort trying to each other because priori encantatem take place again (as in the 4th book) and their wands burst and them.

This is in response to Melissa from Portland, OR:

Just a correction to the post indicating Harry and Voldemort's wands are both made of Yew. Harry's wand is 11 inches and made of Holly with a phoenix feather core (Fawkes).

First of all, Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I am sure many are also confused by this. But where did you find that it was made of holly? Any information I have seen shows it was made of Yew Now you ARE right that the wands were both 11 inches long and the INNER core was that of Dumbledore�s Phoenix Fawkes feather which was used in only two wands. Since the wands select their owners, one wand chose Voldemort. Coincidentally the other wand "chose" to belong to Harry Potter.. The outer core was that of yew, a wood associated with both and rebirth. Kinda like an IPOD, where the external shell is made of plastic and the internal core is circuitry to make it work. So in my mind I think of the Phoenix feather as being the �circuitry� and the Yew wood as being the �plastic shell� on the wand.

If you find I am incorrect on this information, please let me know. But I cannot find any source that states it was made of holly.

Rob from Brighton:

I think you may be on to something. I've also wondered if there could be an unbreakable vow between Dumbledore and Snape. I truly believe Snape is good and acting on Dumbledore's orders at the end of HBP. Hagrid overheard a conversation between Snape and Dumbledore in HBP. That is significant in showing that Snape was still working for the order.
Also, I agree that the locked room in MoM be vital to the fight.
Dumbledore wanted HP to return to the Dursley's because he won't be 17 till the end of July. The protection spell from when his mom d is still in effect until he becomes of age.

I think Snape is Voldemort's son. Now before you all say, NO it can't be! lisen to me.

Snapes mom had a "run in" with the then good looking Tom Riddle, and lied to Tobias Snape, saying the baby was his. but never told Voldemort about his son.

And yes, I know that Jo said that Voldemort has no kids, but would she tell us if she did?

In only one book has Rowling used some unknown object or weapon to complete the final battle and that was the worst of them all. I highly doubt the final battle consist of any weapons or rooms or special people, I think it be Voldemort and Harry and they'll duke it out like men. Harry have all the courage and determination to finish it because of everything from the HBP.

Do we know for sure that Voldemort was coming to Harry? What if he really was coming to turn Harry into a Horcruxe or something? We know that living things can be horcruxes because Nagi was thought to be one, I don't think she is. We see too many smart animals and reptiles in this world for me to believe there's anything special about her. But, I was just reading the piece about Harry being a Horcruxe and it pointed something very interesting out. Harry is told in the first book that his scare is from 'Powerful, Dark Magic" Isn't that was the spell for a Horcruxe is? The ing curse isn't powerful magic, anyone can do it, it doesn't have to do with power, it's determination, feeling. So on and so forth. Just thought I'd poke at this one more time!

I think that Ron . He be with Harry the whole time and probaly won't be strong enough to help him with four horcruxes and at least one major battle. Also expect the Department of Mysteries to have a scene.

This is really hard. After everything that's happened though, I think Harry and/or Voldemort surely . After all, neither can live while the other survives. But then again, how can we be sure that this prophecy is correct? I mean, how many times has Proffessor Trelawney actually been right? Completely absolutely right?

Being one of my most favorite characters, and after all that he's been through, I think, and certainly hope that Neville won't . What good would it do? If he does, he's probably trying to help Harry or someone else on the "good" side.

A lot of people are saying that they don't think the trio can survive. I'm certainly hoping that Ron and Hermione live, and their relationship works out. But then again, there's no doubt that they'll try to help Harry. And if they're fighting, and one of them does , it'll probably be to save someone else. But if Ron does , I am certainly hoping that Harry and Hermione get together. They're best friends, but they've been there for each other all along, and they just don't notice.

I think that Wormatail and Voldemort .

Because Harry saved Wormatails life and now he owes him one, when Voldemort tries to Harry, Wormtail instead of him.

I think Severus have plan with Dumbeldore so he can save draco and help Harry, and in their plan Severus ed Dumbeldore so everyone think that Severus is still eater.
