    Great episode guys, Unidactels (or however it’s spelled) all the way!


    This is from a review of the test screening in Chicago! Doesn’t it sound promising?


    Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint continue their high caliber of performances as Harry, Ron, and Hermione from the first part of the film, but Alan Rickman (Snape) and Maggie Smith (McGonagall) really do steal the show. Snape gets to become a fully emotional character in this film, as evidenced via the phenomenal Prince’s Tale memory sequence, slipped into the ranging and bloody battle for Hogwarts. Snape is a heartbroken shell of a man when Lily is killed, and we see every level of those emotions in Rickman’s performance. The Prince’s Tale scene is one of the best moments in the entire series, and stays with you long after you leave the theater.

    Oh ann I heard too, that there will be more focus on Snape in the movie, than there was in the book! So, I’m really, really, really excited!!!

    Keep on Snaping!!

    I just finished reading the rest of the review on leaky and it sounds absolutely mindblowing, especially the Snape scenes, but I’m not going to post them here, since it are severe spoilers, but if you want to know, just visit Leaky!!!

    But then again, there is one thing, I’m not happy with, and I am going to say it…
    So watch out for the spoiler!


    There is no Snapeshaped hole! Damned!

    Sorry guys, can’t control myself! This is the description of the prince’s tale! So huge huge huge huge huge spoiler!!


    3) The first 3/4 are Snape and Lily. We see Petunia calling Lily a freak. Lily and Severus hanging out by the lake. When they start at Hogwarts. James knocking their books down Her marrying James. Finding out about the prophecy. Telling Dumbledore he made a mistake. Him finding Lily dead in Godric’s Hollow. Holding her and crying. Then Harry starts Hogwarts (clips from the first movie), Snape talking to Dumbledore about Harry being just like his father. Snape trying to heal Dumbledore’s hand, telling him he has a year to live. Dumbledore asks Snape to kill him and to make sure Potter knows at the right time that he is a horcrux. Snape sends out a doe patronus and agrees to Dumbledore’s terms.

    Loved the new episode! Unydactel had me cracking up. Also somewhat coincidentally Billy Crystal was on the Daily Show last night.

    True, there’s no Snape shaped hole, but you have to admit that was the most epic billow of all time.

    I’d been saving this episode for when a cheer-me-up moment was needed and as always you didn’t disappoint. Scary how listening to a bunch of Snapefem giggling hysterically over a unidactyl can cheer me up so much!

    I was intending to keep away from spoilers about DH2, but couldn’t resist watching the trailer – lovin’ the billow of all billows!

    Here’s to hoping that DH2 lives up to its Snapey promise…although not sure there could ever be enough Snape content in a HP film for me.
