Scene 11

Scene 11

  • Someone—or something—has slashed her painting.
  • Dumbledore finds her in another painting, hiding behind a hippo. Not a hippogriff.
  • She says Sirius Black did it. We can add "art destroyer" to his resume of crimes.
  • All the kids are rounded up into a central room, and the teachers conduct a search for Black.
  • No one finds him. And Snape finds it unlikely that Black breached Hogwarts' defenses all by himself.
  • He blames Lupin, who was a friend of Black, for letting him in. This is a curious case of who let the dogs in?
