Helene and special guest Kat from the Alohomora! podcast talk about chapter 37 of Order of the Phoenix: "The Lost Prophecy." Join us as we discuss the politics of premeditation and strategy, along with Dumbledore and Harry’s complicated relationship and the potential motivations behind Dumbledore’s actions throughout the series. We also take a look at the stages of grief and the different ways Harry’s grief for Sirius’ manifests itself.
