Scene 10

Scene 10

  • The trio takes a walk with Hagrid, and try to explain what happened during the game.
  • They believe that Professor Snape was trying to kill Harry.
  • Hagrid lets some pertinent information slip—about the three-headed dog and what it's guarding—and Harry and Ron decide to investigate further while they enjoy their holiday break at the castle.
  • Harry and Ron wake on Christmas morning to presents under the tree.
  • Harry opens a package from an anonymous sender that holds an invisibility cloak.
  • Of course, the first thing he does it plop that sucker on in order to pay a visit to the restricted section of the local library.
  • Harry's nearly discovered, and accidentally bumps into a suspicious conversation between Professor Snape and Quirrell in the hallway in the midst of his escape.
  • Harry finds himself alone in a large empty room…empty except for a large, intricately framed mirror.
  • The frame's inscribed with Latin, and when Harry approaches, he sees a reflection of his mother and father beside his own.
  • Harry grabs Ron to share the mirror.
  • Ron sees something entirely differently: himself triumphant as head boy and Quidditch champion.
  • Eventually Harry returns to the mirror alone, and finds Dumbledore there.
  • Together they discuss the power of the Mirror of Erised, which shows the viewer's greatest desire.
  • Dumbledore asks that Harry not go searching for it once it's moved.
