I was thinking along these same lines. I'm wondering if Draco is going to be reformed. I wonder if he'll be like a Snape, i.e. on the same side as Dumbledore, yet still completely hateful of Harry. Draco seemed so one-dimensional in this book, and I have to say that as far as villains go, Umbright wasn't as well-rounded either. I.e. she just seemed to be cruel for it's own sake. Sirius, Snape, Quirrel, and all the other "bad people" (or at one time thought of as bad) seemed to have more substance.Originally posted by kyrjar
You know, I really believe that Draco is somehow going to be reformed. I thought all that stuff about working together and overcoming one's blood is really a large theme.
I think that Draco understanding his father's prejudices for pure blood and rejecting them would be significant. Maybe Harry will have to save Draco for this to happen. Certainly, Harry will have to do something regarding Draco to show that Harry understands that unity is important.
I find it unbelievable that VM not being pure blood was not understood by the deatheaters, though it is hard to believe VM would be such a stickler on this point, either.
I found it very interesting that the ending of this book was what I expected the beginning to be: DA's in custody and shown for what they are.
