Are you getting excited for our livestreaming event from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter this Saturday at 5 p.m. PT, 8 p.m. ET? We can't wait to relive every captivating moment, especially with the cast and crew virtually close by.
As we review our spells in preparation, we're also taking a look at the most memorable moments from the franchise, and let's face it: There is never a dull moment in Deathly Hallows: Part 1. It seems as though our favorite wizards and witches are constantly on the run from danger (at least more than usual).
After what seems like an endless, wild Hippogriff chase, Harry, Ron and Hermione finally obtain the Horcrux locket from Dolores Umbridge. Trying in vain to destroy the wretched thing, the pals are forced to carry it around for months while trying to remain civilized, as the necklace has a negative effect on their emotions. Poor Ron finally snaps under the stress and peaces out, reducing the three down to a duo...and leaving Hermione heartbroken.
As Harry stands guard one night in the forest, a silver doe Patronus lures him to a frozen pond in which it disappears. Harry jumps into the chilly waters because he sees what looks like the Sword of Gryffindor chilling at the bottom. Sensing the Sword, the Locket attempts to strangle Harry in order to prevent its destruction. It seems to be the end of the road for him. But then all of a sudden someone saves him, and we couldn't be happier to see who it is. Ron! We all knew he'd come back!
And now the crucial moment that we are adding to the countdown: Ron destroys the Horcrux! Harry warns Ron of the evil it contains, but assures him that he can handle it. As soon as it opens, all of Ron's darkest fears surround him: spiders, jealousy, neglect, betrayal by his best friends and secret love. He takes it all in, but as soon as he sees that passionate kiss between Harry and Hermione, he charges toward Harry and the locket and smashes it.
This is a key moment because it brings to light all of Ron's deepest fears and he finally conquers them because of his strong friendship with Harry. It also marks Ron coming back for his friends especially when Harry is led to the sword of Godric Gryffindor right before this by the doe Patronus which is very meaningful.
