Act II, Scene 7

Triwizard Tournament, Edge of the Forbidden Forest, 1994

  • It's like we're back in The Goblet of Fire as Ludo Bagman announces the beginning of the Triwizard Tournament.
  • Albus is shocked to see his dad, who's the same age as Albus is now.
  • Scorpius and Albus also confuse young Hermione for Hermione's future daughter, Rose.
  • Albus uses his Expelliarmus spell on Cedric Diggory, hopefully ruining the first task for him.
  • The Time-Turner painfully rips Albus and Scorpius back to the future.
  • Have they changed anything? Where's Doc Brown when you need him?
  • Instead of Marty McFly, Harry Potter is waiting for his son.
  • "Is something wrong?" Albus asks (2.7.53).
  • Harry says, yes, there is.
