Presenting The Least Plausible “Harry Potter” Plot Twist Yet

Jun 26th, 2007 // 6 Comments

death.jpgToday’s New York Times examines the fandom over the seventh and final Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. The title is out in less than a month, but the story notes that some online HP nerds are claiming to have seen the manuscript–and that it features a bizarre music-related twist. If you’re a fan of the books you won’t want to read any further.

Seriously, don’t look below!


At the same time, with little more than three weeks to go before “Deathly Hallows” goes on sale at 12:01 a.m. on July 21, some people claiming to have actual knowledge of the book’s plot are posting ostensible spoilers online. At one site, for instance, what appears to be a page from a manuscript appears, showing one paragraph outlined in red, suggesting that one of the most morally enigmatic characters in the series dies in the final book, with a few bars from the chorus of “Tarzan Boy” by Baltimora playing on an endless loop in the background.

It seems improbable, but who knows? That song is no stranger to family-friendly franchises.

    I always did have Snape down as a Baltimora fan.

  2. Ned Raggett

    Yeah but now I’m imagining Alan Rickman swinging through a CGI jungle in a big Listerine bottle costume.

    If this is true, I look foward to the YouTube videos of some asshole in a minivan screaming this to a bunch of giddy fans collecting their books at midnight.

    @Labtheque: Yupyup. I don’t give a fig for the books, I’m just waiting for another round of “Snape kills Dumbledore” hilarity.

  5. The Hogwarts school motto is Draco dormiens nunquam titillandus which is Latin for “Never Tickle a Sleeping Dragon.”

  6. This is the appropriate blog for anybody who desires to search out out about this topic. You understand so much its almost exhausting to argue with you (not that I really would want…HaHa). You undoubtedly put a new spin on a topic thats been written about for years. Nice stuff, just nice!
