How It All Goes Down

The Dream

  • Harry tells Ron and Hermione about the attack on Viktor and the disappearance of Mr. Crouch.
  • He concludes: "I've told you [...] He said [Voldemort's] getting stronger" (29.14).
  • Harry goes to send all of this information to Sirius.
  • He, Ron, and Hermione bump into Fred and George in the Owlery.
  • Fred and George are arguing over whether they should blackmail someone.
  • But they still won't tell Ron what's going on.
  • Ron is worried that Fred and George will get in trouble with the law. After all, "they don't exactly mind breaking rules, do they?" (29.59).
  • Harry, Hermione, and Ron see Professor Moody.
  • Professor Moody has found no sign of Mr. Crouch.
  • Professor Moody reminds Harry, "Constant vigilance" (29.90).
  • He also tells Ron and Hermione to "stick close to Potter, all right?" (29.91).
  • Sirius's letter is stern: "Your name didn't get into the Goblet of Fire by accident. If someone's trying to attack you, they're on their last chance" (29.92).
  • Sirius suggests that Ron and Hermione help Harry learn some more hexes for the third task.
  • So Harry stays inside and practices spells.
  • One day in Divination, Harry begins to drift off.
  • Suddenly, he sees a vision of Voldemort plotting with Wormtail.
  • Voldemort casts the Cruciatus Curse on Wormtail for blundering.
  • Harry wakes up screaming as his scar sears with pain. (Yes, still in the middle of class.)
  • Harry leaves class feeling embarrassed and frightened.
  • He goes to Professor Dumbledore's office.
  • Harry overhears Professors Dumbledore and Moody talking to Cornelius Fudge, the Minister of Magic.
  • Fudge refuses to admit that there's any evidence that Voldemort is trying to rise again.
  • Fudge is desperate enough to accuse Madame Maxine.
  • Moody suggests that they wrap up: "it's just that Potter wants a word with you, Dumbledore. He's just outside the door" (29.160).
