Nylon Admiral is spending the next few weeks counting down to the movie in her own way: she's posting about it. Every week she'll post about a different topic on her blog. She's inviting anyone and everyone to join in.
This Week's Topic: The Most Shocking/Unexpected Deaths
Obviously, this post gets a big ol' SPOILER WARNING.
One of my favorite authors is Victor Hugo, despite the fact that by the end of his novels, most of the characters are dead. For example, by the end of The Hunchback of Notre Dame (SPOILER ALERT) Quasimodo, Esmerelda, Frollo, Clopin, and about 8 million other characters have snuffed it. Les Mis is the same way. So, in some respects, is J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. While many more characters have survived by the end of Deathly Hallows than have ever survived a Hugo tome, I half expected her to literally nuke everyone in book seven. To me, it would have been a much kinder way to end the novel than that gods-awful epilogue, but I digress. Here, in no particular order, are my picks for the most shocking and/or unexpected deaths in Harry Potter.
