Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets Scene 5

Scene 5

Scene 5

  • Okay, so how to get to Diagon Alley? By Floo powder of course. Mrs. Weasley tells Ron to go first to show how it's done.
  • Ron grabs a handful of powder, throws it into the fireplace, says, "Diagon Alley," is engulfed by green flames, and disappears.
  • Nothing terrifying about that, right?
  • But, of course, Harry gets all nervous and tongued tied and instead of saying, "Diagon Alley," he says, "diagonally." Awkward.
  • He winds up coming out of the fireplace on his back in some weird spooky shop. There are all kinds of creepy things for sale in the cases.
  • When he books out of that place, he sees all kinds of shady people out in the alley.
  • Luckily, he also runs into Hagrid who warns him against hanging out in Knockturn Alley.
  • Hey, if this place is so bad what was Hagrid doing there?
