Ministry of Magic, Meeting Room

  • It's 10pm, do you know where your children are?
  • Yeah, Harry and Draco have no idea where their kids are.
  • Harry admits that he and Albus had a fight, and that he told Albus he wished he wasn't his son.
  • Draco blames Harry for his own son's disappearance. To be fair, he's kind of right.
  • They almost fight, but Ginny intervenes.
  • Draco offers up all his family's resources to find Scorpius, and he tells Harry, "You are a constant curse on my family" (1.17.36).
  • Maybe Harry is the Cursed Child?
