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

Act IV, Scene 5

Godric's Hollow, Outside James and Lily Potter's House, 1981

  • Albus realizes he needs to send his dad a message, but how? 1981 doesn't exactly get the best cell reception. Maybe he can page him.
  • Harry remembers his dad's baby blanket, and how he spilled Ron's love potion on it.
  • Scorpius tells Albus that tincture of Demiguise will react with the love potion, as if it were invisible ink.
  • The boys decide to get some tincture of Demiguise from Bathilda Bagshot and write a message.
