Spoiler alert!! Snape kills Dumbledore – what a fantastic, dramatic, shocking twist. So good. I was never sad about the whole thing, and I had it spoiled for me the day the book was released, but it’s still a great climax which is not the word I want to use but I can’t think of the right one.
The scene with Harry and Dumbledore in the cave…I dunno, that scene never felt very real to me, but it’s kind of terrifying if you can properly believe it. I just have a hard time imagining Dumbledore acting like that, which I suppose is kind of the point (to show how serious and dramatic, etc. the whole situation is) but it just didn’t work for me. Probably because I would be too freaked out if I properly believed it. 😛
