Scene 9

Scene 9

  • Harry is looking at the newspaper, and Rita Skeeter has written an article about Dumbledore. Rita is a nasty and dishonest piece of work, so the article is bound to make Harry angry.
  • Luckily, he gets a good distraction right at that moment: Ginny comes in and asks Harry to zip her up. Then she kisses him. Dumbledore who?
  • Outside, Mr. Weasley is putting up a tent for this wedding.
  • The Minister of Magic arrives. Hey, that's the guy we saw blathering to reporters at the beginning.
  • He's there to talk to Harry—and, more to the point, read Dumbledore's will.
  • As it turns out, Dumbledore left stuff to Ron, Hermione, and Harry.
  • The kids seem pleased with their gifts…but puzzled. Hermione got a book of old stories, Ron got Dumbledore's Deluminator (which turns lights on and off), and Harry got a couple of things, including the first Snitch he caught in a Quidditch match.
  • One of the other gifts makes perfect sense, though: Dumbledore left the sword of Gryffindor to Harry.
  • As you may recall, the sword can destroy Horcruxes, so Harry definitely knows why Dumbledore wanted to leave it to him.
  • Unfortunately, the Minister of Magic doesn't think the sword was Dumbledore's to give…and besides, the sword is missing.
