  • Chapter by Chapter continues with analysis of Chapter 2 of Half-Blood Prince: Spinner’s End.
  • The brilliance of this chapter is how Snape is playing Bellatrix and Naricissa simultaneously but in different ways.
  • How much does Voldemort know about Dumbledore’s injury? He can’t know about the Horcrux… right?
  • Does one line from Bellatrix help make Delphi’s existence canon?
  • Why would Bellatrix have such a hard time trusting Snape’s word when Voldemort is content with his reasoning? And what should she do if she had ever learned the truth?
  • Who is the MVP of the chapter? Those poor elves…
  • We rename the chapter to reflect what really happens.
  • Crackpot Theory: Has Bellatrix made an unbreakable vow before?
