It’s time for this week’s Podcast Question of the Week! This week the hosts & guests collaborate on a deep question of the elvish kind.
In this chapter, the Trio visits the kitchens for the first time. They find Dobby and Winky, who are both still powerfully restricted from being truly “free” of their former masters, either by conditioning or by magic. Ron “loves the service” in the kitchens – but is Hermione right in reacting so strongly to this situation? The Hogwarts Elves don’t side with either Winky or Dobby, they keep to their work. How are we meant to take the Elf situation in the HP books? Is it more disgraceful that Dobby and Winky are in this situation, or that the House-Elves look down on them for acting out?
Leave us your response below & we just might read them on the next episode of Alohomora!
