By Jack Thorne, based on a story by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany, and Jack Thorne

Act III, Scene 19

Hogwarts, Quidditch Pitch

  • Here we go, about to go back in time with Albus, Scorpius, and Delphi again.
  • She wants Scorpius and Albus to humiliate Cedric again to create the evil timeline.
  • Craig Bowker, Jr. randomly shows up and Delphi blasts him with Avada Kedavra.
  • Delphi threatens Albus, saying she's kill Scorpius if he doesn't do as she says.
  • Before turning time, Delphi recites a prophecy, "When spares are spared, when time is turned, when unseen children murder their fathers: Then will the Dark Lord return" (3.19.44).
  • Wordy, as far as prophecies go. We give it a B-minus.
