Who will make it to Book 6?
I’ve started playing this dangerous new game every time a character is introduced in Order of the Phoenix. It’s called the “I don’t remember seeing you in the sixth movie, so that means you probably die in this book” game. And I’m fighting off the urge to IMDB Half-Blood Prince to see if maybe I just overlooked a few characters because I had no living clue what was going on.
Right now, the entire Order of the Phoenix (or at least the members who appear in Chapter 3) are on death watch (where would this blog be without another death watch?).
I know Sirius dies. I don’t know how, and I’m not even entirely sure when. But he won’t be making any cameos in the sixth book, I’m fairly certain. As for the others – Tonk, Lupin, etc. – maybe they go into hiding? Maybe they have absolutely nothing to do with anything discussed in Half-Blood Prince. Maybe the sixth film just sucked so much that these pivotal characters were left-out. Or maybe they die.
I feel like I would have remembered if a whole slew of wizards were suddenly wiped out. And I need to stop placing stock in the films, which from what I understand, are abridged abominations from this point forward.
But that doesn’t stop me from wondering if all these delightful new characters are going to meet an unfortunate end sooner than later. I’d be surprised…but I wouldn’t be surprised.
The vote is still open in the poll off yonder. Deathly Hollows has taken the lead, to nobody’s surprise. But somebody, somewhere out there MUST love Sorcerer’s Stone or Chamber of Secrets. Anybody? Anybody? Bueller? Bueller?
