Listeners, there are some important announcements at the start of this episode, so if you’re a fan of the show (and especially if you’re not a patron) this is going to be one you don’t want to miss.
One of the disadvantages of the illustrated edition of Prisoner Of Azkaban coming out so recently is that there aren’t a lot of good-quality images out there of the drawings. For the previous two books I was able to find reasonably good images, but this book has been considerably harder, and I’ve finally reached an episode where I could find nothing suitable for the post. Instead I’ve used an illustration of a grindylow from deviantART, which looks nothing like the one in the book but is still pretty cool. I hope you can forgive me.
RoShawn and I had a lot of fun this episode remembering how suspicious she was of Snape at this point, especially at the moment he brings Lupin his potion. She also points out how Rowling is laying the groundwork for Lupin’s involvement in the Order, to be revealed later on, by having Lupin call Voldemort by his name. It’s fun to see what she hid in some of the earlier books!
