I think even in the 6th book, you can see that Narcissa isn't as devoted to Voldemort as the other Death Eaters. She is devoted to her son. She made Snape swear the unbreakable vow in an attempt to keep Draco safe from Voldemort if he couldn't finish his task, so I wasn't all that surprised that she lied to Voldemort. She wanted a reason, any reason, to go to the castle to try and find Draco.

I would have liked to see something about how Lily fell in love with James. Even if it was through Snape's memories of seeing them together and being jealous, it would have pulled together the answer to the question of how she went from disliking him and considering him an arrogant jerk to having a baby with him, you know?

My take on Voldemort "killing" Harry was this: When Voldemort used the wand (of which Harry was the true master) against Harry, it couldn't act against it's master. It could only kill the part of him that wasn't Harry. It only "killed" the horcrux.

I think the crying baby was the part of Voldemort's soul that had been a part of Harry.

Like a couple of you said, I want to go back and read the entire series again now. I wonder if there are things that I'd pick up on that I didn't get reading it without knowing the ending to the entire series. I watched on of the movies yesterday, and it was weird seeing Fred and George knowing how it will all end in the final movie.

Wow you ladies are good. The crying baby thing being the part of Voldemort from Harry makes total sense! I think I was so wrapped up in what was going on with his conversation with Dumbeldore that I was too distracted to try to figure that out!

I totally agree that if we all went back and reread the series, there would be a LOT of new little things that you might pick up on.

Has anyone been to any of the HP fan sites or JKR site to read up on what others are chatting about??

I haven't since the book came out. I checked the Leaky Cauldron and Mugglenet.com before it came out, and they were going to close down their forums for the first couple of days after the book came out so that no one could post any spoilers.

I agree on the little 'monster' thing as to what it was, I was thinking it must be the part of Voldemorts soal too....that is so funny you say that about watching the movie and thinking about Fred and George and how it will end, we watched "Goblet of Fire" last night and I kept thinking the same thing!! This is mean but I kinda wish she would have killed off one of the older Weasley's that we werent so invested in kwim?? (Like maybe Charlie he didnt have much to do with the story, or Percy seeing as how he was such a butt in the earlier stories him dying to help protect his family would have been fitting for him to "make up") but maybe she wanted us to 'lose someone' we really liked.....I watched #4 last night cause Im taking the kids to see #5 today, I wanted to read the final book before I went and saw it cause we like the books so much more but I like the movies too so we are off to do that today.....
