  • Everyone's hung up on Delphi, but time goes by and she hasn't shown her face (or her tacky back tattoo) yet.
  • Albus is asleep, so Ginny takes the time to tell Harry that he needs to show his son "specific love" (4.9.17).
  • Harry says, "I do love him specifically" (4.9.20). Wake him up and tell him, Dad!
  • Ginny has a new idea about Voldemort and Delphi.
  • She thinks Delphi isn't going to kill Baby Harry. She's going to stop Voldemort from trying it.
  • Le gasp.
