The Flaw in the Plan

“So it all comes down to this, doesn’t it?” whispered Harry. “Does the wand in your hand know its last master was Disarmed? Because if it does… I am the true master of the Elder Wand.” -Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the chapter “The Flaw in the Plan” is the chapter when Harry “comes back to life” and finally fulfills the prophecy and vanquishes the Dark Lord Voldemort. I find this to be one of my favorite chapters, not only does it have Mrs. Molly Weasley, mother to the 7 (now 6) Weasley children, but she saves Ginny, Hermione and Luna from Bellatrix Lestrange, evil Voldi supporter with, and I quote, “Not my daughter you bitch!” Now, when I read that, I said “Uh-oh…” a lot of parents aren’t going to be happy about that line in the book, but in context, it fits the scene considering the Weasley’s lost their son and brother Fred in a dual and the thought of losing another child would be even more unbearable. And lets just face it, this line is the “awesomest” line in the entire book.

The other thing about this chapter is the “chat” (for seven pages mind you), that Voldemort and Harry have in the middle of the battle. Harry goes to explain that since he sacrificed himself to save everyone else, the Horcrux inside of him was defeated, and he also survived because the love of his mother. It’s a simple solution on how Voldemort is thwarted by his inability to understand love, which we see constantly in the series.  Since Voldemort doesn’t know the meaning of love or have any feelings towards that verb, he is vanquished (with the help of the Elder Wand and Harry’s famous “Expelliarmus” spell). Harry’s loved by his friends, Ginny, the family The Weasley’s, so with all their strength he was able to kill Voldemort and finally stop the ongoing battle. This is why I love these books to much, it wasn’t all “magic” it was love, friendship and family (just to name a few) that helped him.
