Harry learns that Merope had later died in childbirth, and that even at an early age, Riddle had developed his powers, which he used to punish people who annoyed him and had a sadistic, cruel and independent nature, just like the adult Voldemort.

Later in the day, the trio receive their O.W.L. results; Harry and Ron receive 7 O.W.L.s while Hermione receives 10. However, Harry is slightly disappointed as he has only achieved ‘Exceeds Expectations‘ in Potions, meaning he can no longer realise his ambition as an Auror as Snape only takes students who have achieved ‘Outstanding‘ into his N.E.W.T. Potions class.

- “No, Draco. It is my mercy, and not yours, that matters now.””
- Dumbledore, at the Astronomy Tower.

Borrowing broomsticks, the pair fly to the tower. Upon hearing someone approaching them, Dumbledore uses a charm to paralyse Harry and hides him under his invisibility cloak, before being disarmed by Malfoy. Malfoy reveals that he had let Death Eaters into the school through a pair of vanishing cabinets, which were the objects Harry had overheard him questioning Borgin about. Malfoy also explains that he was behind the cursed necklace and poisoned mead incidents, which were really assassination attempts on Dumbledore. Dumbledore reveals that he had known Malfoy was attempting to kill him, but allowed him to remain at Hogwarts because he knew that Voldemort would have murdered Malfoy once his cover had been blown. Dumbledore tries to persuade him to change sides, but the other Death Eaters join the scene and urge Malfoy to finish his mission. Then Snape appears, and with Malfoy still reluctant to finish off the unarmed Dumbledore, Snape kills Dumbledore.

However, the Dark Mark is not cast over the school until after Dumbledore’s death.
- Harry is not frozen by Dumbledore as in the book, rather, Dumbledore instructs Harry to go and hide below, and not to speak or be seen by anyone. Harry hesitantly oblidges and goes down to the floor below the top of the astronomy tower looking up through floorboards at the events. In the book, he remains unnoticed the whole time, while in the film, Snape catches Harry in the tower, and persuades him to stay silent, before going upstairs to kill Dumbledore.
- In the book, Amycus Carrow finds Draco with Dumbledore, and he pressures Draco to kill Dumbledore. In the film, while Amycus is still present, it is Bellatrix Lestrange, who is not among the Death Eaters present in the book, encountering Draco and pressuring him to kill Dumbledore.

Differences From The Book
While at the middle of the series in length, the film Half-Blood Prince did add or change events in the literary canon. The book begins with a scene involving the Muggle Prime Minister. Yates and his crew debated over this scene, as well as the character Rufus Scrimgeour, but gave up the beginning of the movie to events described but not seen in the book. Yates thought it would give the audience a feel for what the Death Eaters were doing if they showed the collapse of the Millennium Bridge rather than simply describe it . As with Goblet of Fire, the Dursleys were cut, which Steve Kloves did to “break the pattern”. Further background of Tom Riddle was removed, such as the Gaunts because they felt it more important to concentrate on Riddle as a young boy, and an additional action scene at the Burrow was added to keep with the tone of the franchise. Yates felt that they needed “an injection of jeopardy and danger” and that without it there was too much comedy and lightness. A small battle scene at Hogwarts which happened during the end of the book was also cut; Heyman commented that it was removed to ” repetition” with the forthcoming adaptation of the Battle of Hogwarts in Deathly Hallows. Dumbledore’s funeral was removed as it was believed it did not fit with the rest of the film.

Harry, the new Gryffindor QuidditchCaptain, holds trials to select the team for the annual Quidditch Cup.

Later Harry, Ron and Hermione go visit Hagrid, who is upset at them as they had dropped his subject, Care of Magical Creatures. After lying to Hagrid that they had dropped Care of Magical Creatures as they could not fit it into their timetables, Hagrid reconciles with them. When the trio return to the Great Hall for dinner, Harry finds out that Hermione had used the Confundus Charm on McLaggen so that Ron would become Keeper, but he does not tell Ron this. Slughorn then invites Harry and Hermione for dinner with the other Slug Club members in his office, which Harry declines as he has to do his detention with Snape.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald

Snape Appears To Pick A Side
More than Draco Malfoy, Severus Snape takes center stage in “Half-Blood Prince.” He’s long been an antagonist to Harry the mean, snide Potions professor who has it out for Harry, specifically. And yet, for years, Dumbledore has supported Snape.
As Harry grows closer to Dumbledore this year, he tentatively sees Snape in a different light and a flicker of trust grows. So in the climax, when Harry is watching Dumbledore’s confrontation with the Death Eaters, he trusts Snape to take care of the problem and doesn’t engage like he wants to. This immediately backfires, however, when Snape flings the killing curse at Dumbledore.
To Harry, this proves what he’s believed all along: Severus Snape is loyal to Voldemort. But it’s revealed in “Deathly Hallows” that Dumbledore actually asked Snape to kill him, to spare Draco from the harm of succeeding and to spare himself from torture at another Death Eater’s hands. Earlier in the film, Harry walks in on the two of them talking and hears Snape tell Dumbledore that he asks too much Snape didn’t want to kill him. Additionally, Snape makes the Unbreakable Vow with Narcissa Malfoy to keep Draco safe and complete his task killing Dumbledore if he couldn’t. So, Snape has pressure twofold to kill Dumbledore, but his action is not a betrayal.

- Harry to Scrimgeour.
Dumbledore’s White Tomb
The funeral is attended by many witches and wizards, including a number of minor characters in the series. During the funeral, Harry ends his relationship with Ginny to protect her from Voldemort. She reveals that she had never given up on him; Hermione had advised her to go out with other people so she could relax around Harry, as previously she had trouble talking to him. As a result, he fell in love with her upon seeing who she really was, and regrets not asking her out sooner. Harry then meets Scrimgeour, who again makes the offer he’d made to Harry at Christmas, which Harry again turns down. He then tells Ron and Hermione of his intention to leave Hogwarts to destroy the Horcruxes and then Voldemort himself. His two best friends agree to travel with him on his quest, and Harry happily acknowledges that there is “still one last golden day of peace left to enjoy with Ron and Hermione”.
Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them
Five years after the end of the Harry Potter franchise, the world came roaring back to the big screen. This time, it wasn’t based on books of any kind but was instead a story J.K. Rowling created for the big screen. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them told the story of Newt Scamander, whose books about fantastic beasts Harry studied in school.

Why Is Snape Called The Half
Let’s start with the “Half-Blood” part, shall we? If you’ll remember, Snape’s father was a Muggle and his mother, Eileen, was a witch. If a child has one parent who’s a witch/wizard and one parent who’s a Muggle, then they’re classified as a “half-blood” under the blood purity classification. The “Prince” has been added because “Prince” was his mother’s maiden name and he valued his mother’s lineage over his father’s.
In;Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Hermione explains Snape’s reasoning to Harry. “Snape must have been proud of being half a Prince, you see? Tobias Snape was a Muggle from what it said in the Prophet.”
How Did Snape Not Work Out That Voldemort Had Horcruxes
Look, Snape was a pretty smart guy and highly skilled in the Dark Arts, so why didn’t he know about Horcruxes? Throughout the books, he seems to possess all the same information about the Harry/Voldemort connection as Dumbledore, yet he continually fails to put two and two together.
The truth of the matter is, Horcruxes were a fairly obscure topic, even among Dark Wizards. Not only that, but chances are that Snape had stopped studying the Dark Arts after he switched allegiances, plus Dumbledore had removed all books on the topic from the library.

Book : Harry Potter And The Half
When it hit shelves: July 16, 2005
What happens in the book:No longer able to deny Voldemort’s return as the Dark Lord and his minions wreak havoc in both magic and Muggle communities the Minster of Magic, Cornelius Fudge, resigns. Arthur Weasley is promoted to Head of Detection and Confiscation of Counterfeit Defensive Spells and Protective Objects, and the Weasleys’ financial situation improves.
On the dark side of the world, Draco Malfoy’s mother makes Snape swear he will protect Draco. To everyone’s surprise, Snape takes a post he has long coveted: professor of Defense Against the Dark Arts. Meanwhile, emotions between Harry, Ron and Hermione are at an all-time high when Ron starts dating Lavender. Harry is caught between Ron and Hermione’s cross fire, which doesn’t end until Ron is poisoned.
Dumbledore shares with Harry his theory that Voldemort’s soul was split into seven parts, called Horcruxes, to attain immortality. If all his Horcruxes are destroyed, Voldemort is a goner for good. Dumbledore and Harry review all the memories about Voldemort that Dumbledore has collected in order to figure out where the Horcruxes might be located.
The students, professors and ghosts at Hogwarts are immensely saddened by Dumbledore’s death. There is talk of closing down the school for good. Harry ends his budding romance with Ginny to protect her from Voldemort. Harry also decides to leave Hogwarts, and vows to find the remaining four Horcruxes with Ron and Hermione’s help.
Harry Was Right About Draco But Not Quite
Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy have been rivals since Harry’s first day at Hogwarts. Draco’s always been an entitled, arrogant bully who’s gone out of his way to hurt Harry, Ron , and Hermione , but “Half-Blood Prince” takes him to new extremes and yet sets him on a new path.
For the whole school year, Harry is convinced Draco has been inducted into the Death Eater ranks, joining his father. The last scenes prove this is true: Voldemort charged Draco with killing Dumbledore and he’s got the fancy Dark Mark to show for it. He tries halfheartedly a few times, with the cursed necklace and the poisoned bottle of mead, but this time, he enacts his true plan, letting the Death Eaters into Hogwarts via the Vanishing Cabinet. They corner Dumbledore at the top of the tower, but, even though Draco’s been a horrible person for the last six years, he doesn’t have it in him to murder someone. He hesitates, even though he’s certain Voldemort will kill him and possibly his family if he doesn’t complete the task.
Dumbledore, to his credit, knew all along that Draco was plotting this, but he doesn’t want Draco to follow through because he doesn’t want his student to cross that line. He tells Draco, “Years ago, I knew a boy who made all the wrong choices,” comparing the young Slytherin to a teenage Tom Riddle.
