Question of the Week

Podcast Question of the Week – Episode 114

Dumbledore shows up to save the day in the Department of Mysteries. But perhaps things would not have ended so (relatively) well had Dumbledore been presented a certain option…

In this chapter, Voldemort possesses or takes control of Harry in some way, and Harry subsequently tells Dumbledore to kill him. Dumbledore, of course, does not kill Harry. But might have Dumbledore actually killed Harry here if it had not been for Horcruxes, if he had the chance to kill them both in one stroke of the wand when they were joined? Dumbledore is willing to send Harry to his doom later in the series, but would he end it directly with his own hand here if he knew he could kill Voldemort as well?
