An oft wondered theory, we delve deep into the motivation behind Hermione in this week’s podcast question of the week.
Not for the first time, Hermione offhandedly mentions in this chapter that she has left her family vacation early, claiming to her parents that she needs to study for her exams. As has been noted in the past by the Potter fandom, Hermione often monopolizes her time with her parents in order to prioritize her life in the magical world. How is this a reflection of Hermione’s relationship with her parents? Is there an additional layer that we do not see?
Let us know your thoughts in the comments below and tune in next week to see if your ideas are discussed on the show!
