“Harry is the best hope we have. Trust him.”
In this chapter, we see multiple characters admitting to Harry that he was right about nearly all of his theories throughout the year, and that everyone is now facing the dire consequences for not having listened to him. While Harry has been correct about his suspicions in previous years, he is particularly vindicated in this chapter, with multiple characters conceding guilt and regret. At the end of Order of the Phoenix, Harry’s suspicions are catastrophically incorrect, and as we’ve discussed in this book, that seems to have affected how seriously the characters take Harry in Half-Blood Prince. With this new found vindication, how does this affect the other characters’ belief in Harry in Deathly Hallows? Will their trust in Harry prove worthwhile?
