We get the How – but what about the Why?
The story of how Regulus got the locket, and how Kreacher failed to destroy it, is revealed to all in this chapter. What is not revealed is what made Regulus change his tune and defy Lord Voldemort. There are a lot of theories as to this – there is implied evidence in this chapter that the treatment of Kreacher plays a part in his decision – but as far as we can remember, it has never been elaborated on or confirmed by Rowling. What event do you think pushed Regulus over to the “light side”?
