  2. Spinner’s End – The one where Narcissa goes to find Snape secretly against Voldemort’s orders, and Bellatrix tries to stop her, but still joins her at Snape’s house. Snape prevents Wormtail from eavesdropping and tells Bellatrix her story about her, even though she still refuses to trust him; Narcissa then reveals that Voldemort has ordered Draco to do something difficult, and she asks Snape to take an unbreakable oath, which she then does, saying that she will help Draco accomplish the deed and that he will do it himself if Draco fails.

Will and Won’t – In which Dumbledore returns to Privet Drive, the Daily Prophet informs us about how Harry is viewed by the wizarding community and the measures the Ministry has taken to ensure safety during the war. Dumbledore sits down with Harry and the Dursleys before departing, gives Harry information about his inheritance from Sirius, and hands him Kreacher after ascertaining that he has in fact come into Harry’s possession. Dumbledore then reprimands the Dursleys for their treatment of Harry but requests permission to visit Privet Drive one last time before leaving with Harry.

  5. An Excess of Phlegm – In this episode, Harry discusses the Ministry with Mrs. Weasley (and later Mr. Weasley), Fleur and Bill are revealed to be engaged—much to the dismay of Harry’s family—and Harry tells Ron and Hermione about Slughorn, his one-on-one lessons with Dumbledore, and the prophecy while they tell him about Fleur and Tonks.

Draco’s Detour – In which we learn of several disappearances, including Florean Fortescue and Mr. Ollivander, and Harry, Hermione and the Weasleys go shopping in Diagon Alley, escorted by Hagrid. There they discover a much changed atmosphere and an empty Leaky Cauldron, collide with Draco and Narcissa Malfoy from Madam Malkin, take a tour of Weasley’s Bright Shots, and sneak in to follow Draco to Borgin and Burke, where they hear a mysterious message. conversation between him and Mr. Borgin.

Harry discovers on the train that he is more well-known than ever, but he continues to sit with Neville and Luna until Slughorn invites him to tea. After listening to Malfoy boast about working with Voldemort for hours, Harry slips into the Slytherins’ compartment while remaining undetectable. However, when the train stops, Malfoy freezes Harry and abandons him.

Once inside, Harry discusses his status as “The Chosen One” with those around him and Dumbledore gives his opening speech, announcing that Slughorn will teach Potions and Snape will teach Defense Against the Dark Arts.

In memory of Bob Ogden they go to the home of Marvolo Gaunt to see his son, Morfin, who has committed a crime; there they see a mean, impoverished and racist Marvolo abusing his daughter Merope, who is seeing Muggle Tom Riddle. Dumbledore explains that Merope then used a love potion on Tom and they became Voldemort’s parents.

After giving Ron and Hermione his map and Felix Felicis, Harry runs off to get his invisibility cloak, and he and Dumbledore apparate to the seaside.

They cross a lake in a covert boat after Dumbledore swims to the entrance and splashes blood on him to gain entry.

They fly to the top of the astronomy tower, where Draco appears and disarms Dumbledore, but he can’t bring himself to kill him and Dumbledore tries to get Draco to take the good side. However, before Malfoy can decide, other Death Eaters appear, including Snape, who kills Dumbledore himself and blows up the body from the tower.
  28. Flight of the Prince – In which Harry pursues Snape, Malfoy, and the Death Eaters as they flee. On the way, Hagrid’s hut is set on fire, the Death Eaters flee, and he runs through a fierce battle involving the Order while trying in vain to curse Snape, who we now know is unquestionably the Half-Blood Prince.
