Now, even if the HBP does come back to the "good side" with help, he won't be taken seriously by anybody, and just thrown in Azkaban.
In this way, I don't see how anybody could have benefited from his death except Voldemort himself.
Although, he always trusted the HBP for a reason that they haven't yet disclosed in any of the books. We will probably soon find out in the next one why he trusted him. Maybe it will turn out that this was his plan all along, because he was quite a smart wizard which usually planned out everything throughly. I mean isn't it a bit weird that Harry and him didn't just escape initially when they met *? 2 on 1... I mean even Harry could have even beaten * easily, and then they could have been off. It's all a little fishy to me..
How do we know he didn't tell anyone? Perhaps he told his brother (the barman in Hogsmeade). Perhaps he told the OOTP but they kept it to themselves to prod Harry into action. There are a lot of maybes.
Here's what I'm sure of. Dumbledore has never been wrong in these books. I doubt he's wrong now.
Also, the more I think of it, Reg. Black seems too obvious. Since when has JK Rowling ever been up front? It just seems too obvious.
Agreed. Dumbledore has never been wrong in any of these books, and he shouldn't start now. But it looked to me as if the OOTP looked pretty shocked at *'s death (Lupin, McGonagall). You'd think if he was going to tell anybody, it would be Harry. You know *'s brother (the barman), I didn't notice him at the funeral in the list of names. Wouldn't he have been there for his own brother's funeral? Somethings up..
As for Regulus Black, it does seem a bit obvious seeing as we don't really know any other R.B's in these books yet. It could of course be someone we don't even know yet.
I just found an interview on the net of JK Rowling about a day after the book was written, and they asked questions about the plot. She didn't give many answers, but it is still interesting.
You know who I thought was one of the better characters? Fenrir Greyback. Did he die or did he get away? I'm not sure. Does anybody know?
