Are planning to read Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows?

Yes. Reading it this weekend. Hopefully before Monday so I can discuss.


1. Snape is good.
2. Sirius is alive. It was just really really vague in the 5th book. Him falling through a dark door, um... ALIVE!
3. One of the trio dies (Hermione, Ron or Harry.)
4. Snape Dies. Even though Snape is good, Harry will kill him.
7. Something up with Harry's Aunt Petunia. Although just discussing this with Jamie, maybe not.
8. Malfoy will join Harry/ the good side.

I agree with most of the above, but think somethings up with Tonks too. I've always thought that Aunt Petunia was the key to some part of the puzzle.

Both Harry and Voldemort die. Having Harry die is the only way to truly put an end to the series and it would be too depressing if Voldemort succeeded. And yes, Snape is good. I totally called Dumbledore's death in book 6, so I'm feeling pretty sure of this.

Yeah Dumbledore's death seemed looming - but whoever called that the Half Blood Prince was Snape?
