Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 Scene 21

Scene 21

Scene 21

  • Voldemort is mad and sends out some more terrible spells against the castle. His wand doesn't seem to be working properly for him, but it does enough: The castle's protections have broken.
  • The Death Eaters rush onto the grounds. Neville, fleeing from them, almost falls to his death on a bridge when it breaks, but he manages to scramble back up to safety. Whew.
  • It's total mayhem now, guys. Giants are suddenly rushing the grounds along with the Death Eaters.
  • The good guys retreat inside Hogwarts, with the bad guys in pursuit.
  • Suddenly, everyone is dueling.
  • Harry and Ginny run into each other and make some time for kissyface, but then it's back to work for both of them.
  • Harry arrives at a wall. Elsewhere, Ron and Hermione, who are looking at the Marauder's Map, realize he's probably in the Room of Requirement.
  • Meanwhile, Draco is trying to lead his buddies in pursuit of Harry. Oh great, just what we need right now. He sees that Harry has entered the Room of Requirement.
  • Inside, Harry finds the diadem. He hears all kinds of creepy whispering when he picks it up, which is definitely a sign he's found a Horcrux.
  • There's a problem, though: Draco and his friends, Crabbe and Goyle, arrive looking for Draco's wand.
  • Harry asks Draco why he didn't give Harry up to Bellatrix (at the end of the last movie). Draco doesn't answer, and his buddies tell him to finish Harry off.
  • Luckily, Ron and Hermione arrive, and Ron chases Draco and friends off.
  • Hermione and Harry go after the crown, which had been knocked onto a huge pile of other stuff.
  • Ron then comes running back, screaming. Crabbe has unleashed this crazy snake-monster thing made of Fiendfyre. It's like regular fire, but it's super hot and acts like a heat-seeking missile and is almost impossible to control or put out. And yes, it's as freaky as it sounds.
  • Suddenly, all the kids are on the run from the Fiendfyre, which they have no power to stop.
  • Ron, Harry, and Hermione get broomsticks to stay above the fire, but Harry refuses to leave Malfoy and Goyle (Crabbe…yeah, well, you can guess what the Fiendfyre snake did to him).
  • They manage to get them out of the room safely.
  • Draco takes off, and Harry and friends destroy the Horcrux just outside the room.
  • Voldemort feels it happen. He's getting weaker, guys…
