Act III, Scene 11

Hogwarts, Slytherin Dormitory

  • Harry is mad at Albus for doing something stupid and reckless.
  • (Um, he learned by watching you, dad.)
  • Harry then apologizes for thinking Scorpius was a black cloud.
  • Harry admits he was scared when Albus was missing.
  • Albus says, "I thought Harry Potter wasn't afraid of anything?" (3.11.19).
  • Albus then says that even when he was in Gryffindor in an alternate timeline, Harry still hated him.
  • So it's not about him being in Slytherin.
  • Harry says he knows it isn't about that. But what's it about?
  • Harry asks Albus if he's okay.
  • Nope.
  • Harry, who needs everything to be about him, says, "No. Nor me" (3.11.28).
