4.32 Flesh, Blood, and Bone

4.32 Flesh, Blood, and Bone

In what is possibly the most pivotal chapter of the entire Harry Potter series, Alice and Martha fully eulogize Cedric and reflect on the life that was taken from us too soon. Wormtail follows a recipe moste evile to resurrect his master, and sadly, “it” doesn’t drown. Lord Voldemort has returned, and Harry’s life will never be the same again. Don’t worry though; despite the heavy topic, there’s… Read more

4.31 The Third Task

Bill is back, acting cooler than ever, Snuffles sends his best wishes (or does he?), and no one but Hermione seems to be able to remember that Muggle technology goes haywire at Hogwarts.

4.28 The Madness of Mr. Crouch

4.28 The Madness of Mr. Crouch

This chapter art may not be Alice’s favorite, but the chapter makes up for it with opportunities for plenty of Dobby and Winky impressions, discussions of Ron’s problem with Hermione’s social activism, and the symbolism of Barty Crouch, Sr. Plus, Harry is super awkward with Krum and Snape trolls Harry pretty hard, so what’s not… Read more

4.27 Padfoot Returns

4.27 Padfoot Returns

​As the title suggests, this chapter features the return of Padfoot… er, Snuffles, that is. It also features highly questionable teaching methods by Snape, frustrating interactions between Ron and Hermione, and lots of chicken.

4.26 The Second Task

4.26 The Second Task

There is a tragic lack of Hedwig in this chapter, but that doesn’t stop Alice and Martha from paying homage to the great white bird through silence and song. Also in this episode is debate of what underwater animal is the most useful Animagus, controversy over Harry’s willingness to leave Hermione behind, and, of course,… Read more

4.25 The Egg and the Eye

4.25 The Egg and the Eye

From Myrtle to Mrs. Norris to Mad-Eye, it’s hard to figure out which eye JK is really referring to with this chapter title.
