Deathly Hallows, Chapter Nineteen

This chapter is quite a day for Harry. He begins feeling the lowest of low – his best friend seems to be gone forever; his wand is destroyed, rendering him helpless and naked; and he has no idea where to find more Horcruxes or how to destroy the one he’s got – it’s remarkable he hasn’t simply given up. But by the end of the day, Ron has returned, the sword of Gryffindor has been delivered to them, and the Horcrux has been destroyed. I have to imagine that when Harry thinks back on the best days of his life, this one ranks right up there. And indeed, we’ll learn in the next chapter that the next day he finds it hard not to smile constantly.

One thing I love that we see through Harry in this chapter is how important his relationship is with Ron. There’s no doubt whatsoever that, like three years earlier when Ron was held hostage for the Second Task of the Triwizard Tournament – Ron Weasley is most definitely the person Harry misses most. I suspect that may be one thing that never changes between the two of them. Now that Ron has returned, that is. ;)
