It may be in between tasks, but that doesn’t mean Harry is about to get some down time. From an uncomfortable house elf encounter in the kitchens to unfortunate hate mail (and sworn vengeance on Rita Skeeter), it seems like Harry will never get a break. A disturbing encounter with Mr. Crouch signals the beginning of the end – something nefarious is about to unfold, and it could mean the end of Harry. Join hosts, Alison, Beth, Katy and guest host Ann, as they unravel chapter 28 of Goblet of Fire, “The Madness of Mr. Crouch.”
