Harry and Ginny Potter's House, Bedroom

  • Harry wakes up in a sweat and tells Ginny about his Hagrid dream. ("Hey, honey, I was dreaming about the groundskeeper at our old school…")
  • He also says he wishes Albus were more like his other children.
  • Ginny says that Albus wants to see the real Harry, not the Harry Potter celebrity version.
  • She asks Harry if his scar hurts, and he says it hasn't hurt for twenty-two years. He must be putting cocoa butter on it.
