Question: In an interview sometime after the release of Goblet of Fire but before Order of the Phoenix, J.K. Rowling mentioned Mr. Weasley's flying car as one of several familiar "characters" from Books 1-4 who were slated to make a reappearance in Books 5-7 (along with Lupin, Dobby, Aragog, Crookshanks, and others, I believe). Obviously, that did not come to pass, but does anyone know if she's ever clarified which scene in which book the car was originally intended to appear in? I've always assumed that it would have been used to fly to the Ministry in OotP in place of the Thestrals (since it was right there in the Forest after all), but it's also possible it was originally meant to play some role in the Seven Potters chase/battle in DH. Has anyone heard anything about this?
Question: I have 3 questions. 1) Did Sirius really care about Harry or was he just using Harry as a chance to have his best friend back? 2) When did Sirius ever treat Harry like Harry's dad if he ever did treat Harry like James? 3) Why did Sirius say Harry only might be able to live with him if Harry was expelled from Hogwarts and then not talk to Harry when he found out he could go back to Hogwarts?THE GAMER NEXT DOOR
Question: In Snape's memory that Harry sees in the Pensieve, why does younger Snape take his exam outside with him instead of handing it in?
Question: If Kreacher could belong to Sirius even though Sirius was disowned by his family, then shouldn't he have gone to Andromeda, who was also disowned, before going to Andromeda's younger sister, Narcissa?
Question: Why does Dolores give Professor Snape a hard time during her inspection of his teaching? Shouldn't she, like Lucius Malfoy, be under the impression that he is loyal to Voldemort (not knowing that he is actually pretending)?
Question: During the Occlumency lessons, when Snape sees the memory of Aunt Marge's dog attacking Harry, why does he want to know whose dog it was?
Question: When Harry is brought to Dumbledore's office after dreaming about Mr. Weasley being attacked, what does Dumbledore mean with "but in essence divided"?
Other mistake: In chapter 30 of the American hardcover edition, Harry and Hermione find seats in the topmost row at the Quidditch match, but when Hagrid comes to tell them about Grawp he squeezes his way through the row behind them. If Harry and Hermione are in the topmost row, there cannot be a row behind them. (Corrected in later Editions).
