Question of the Week

Podcast Question of the Week – Episode 40

Chapter three is another short chapter but we get to see a bit more of Harry’s new lifestyle at the Dursleys’. Caleb came up with a really interesting question for you all.

When things aren’t looking good for Harry in terms of being able to go to the Quidditch World Cup, he deliberately name-drops Sirius to blackmail Vernon into letting him go.

Harry really starts to stand up for himself here with the Dursleys, with the ability to “threaten” them with the idea of Sirius. Would this have been possible without that crux? Would Harry have found that confidence without something with which to push back at the Dursleys?

Let us know your thoughts below and they just might be read out on the next episode of Alohomora!
