Harry and Hermione do a little sneaking in this week’s chapter, which leads to some important information reaching Snape. But what if things had gone a little differently?
In this chapter Harry and Hermione go into Professor Umbridge’s locked office with the knife Sirius gave Harry so that Harry can use the private Floo Network to check on Sirius. Umbridge ends up capturing them, along with a few others, with the help of the Inquisitorial Squad. Malfoy retrieves Snape, and before Snape leaves, Harry gives him the message about Padfoot being captured. What do you think would have happened if Malfoy weren’t asked to retrieve Snape? Would Snape still have been a part of the scene and able to warn the Order about the trio’s disappearance? Would the Order have even showed up to the Ministry of Magic?
Let us know your thoughts in the comments below and tune in next week to see if your ideas are discussed on the show!
