Scene 17

Scene 17

  • Of course, Harry has to tell Ron and Hermione all the hospital wing gossip.
  • Ron still thinks that Draco is the heir of Slytherin. Maybe Lucius Malfoy also opened the Chamber of Secrets when he was at school and he taught Draco how to do it.
  • We'll know when the Polyjuice Potion is done, Hermione tells him.
  • Why are we brewing this potion in the middle of the day in the girls' bathroom? Ron asks Hermione.
  • Because of Moaning Myrtle. She's the ghost that haunts this bathroom. No one goes in this bathroom because she's so temperamental and obnoxious so they definitely won't get caught. Hermione knows all the tricks.
  • Meanwhile, Professor Lockhart has decided to start a student dueling club. He's got Professor Snape to help him.
  • After Snape knocks Lockhart back during a sample duel with a simple disarming spell, Lockhart suggests some students team up.
  • That's how we get Harry vs. Draco.
  • Of course, Draco doesn't follow the rules and knocks Harry down with a spell. Harry fires back and knocks Draco down with his own spell.
  • Professor Snape doesn't seem to mind, but Professor Lockhart can sense things spiraling out of control.
  • What's he gonna do to stop it though? This guy is useless at magic.
