Hey listeners, what’s up! I recorded this on Saturday instead of the usual Friday, which is why it’s going up later than usual. Plus, we’re only doing 2 chapters this week because the “Flourish & Blotts” chapter is super long and we had plenty to talk about.
These chapters deal with a lot of stuff, from Harry’s summer stay at the Burrow, the accidental visit to Knockturn Alley, the ride in the flying Ford Anglia all the way to Hogwarts, the showdown with the Whomping Willow, and then the inevitable face-off with Snape, who desperately wants to get them expelled.
It’s actually kind of crazy how much happens in such a short time. I mean, look at all the stuff I mentioned above and I didn’t even include the fact that Harry hides out in the fucking vanishing cabinet from Book 6 and watched Lucius Malfoy try to sell some sketchy shit to Borgin And Burkes. I love that whole scene, from our introduction to Lucius to him shading the hell out of his own son.
