Scene 23

Scene 23

  • Harry and Sirius help Ron from the tunnel and they emerge into the peaceful outdoors.
  • Good thing the Whomping Willow appears to be taking a nap.
  • Harry tells Sirius that he spared Pettigrew, because he didn't think his dad would want his two best friends to become killers. That's sweet. Is there a Hallmark card for that?
  • While they have their heart-to-heart, Lupin emerges from the tree with Pettigrew.
  • Lupin, who has a terrible knowledge of moon cycles, seems to have forgotten it's the night of the full moon.
  • As he transforms into a wolfman, Pettigrew transforms into a rat and escapes.
  • Snape conveniently emerges to protect the kids from the wolf.
  • That lasts about three seconds before he is batted aside.
  • But Sirius in dog form leaps into the fray, and dog wrestles with Lupin.
  • Lupin is about six times the size of dog Sirius, and he quickly gains the upper hand.
  • However he's called away by a mysterious howling in the distance.
  • Injured, Sirius limps into the woods. Harry follows. Seriously, Harry? You don't even want to be in those woods in the daytime.
