Hello! (Yeah!) And welcome to Binge Mode! Mallory Rubin and Jason Concepcion continue their exploration of the Harry Potter universe by diving deep into Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, chapters 32-33. To help guide you on that journey, here is a map of the 59th episode of Binge Mode: Harry Potter. It’s not quite as detailed as the Marauder’s Map, but don’t fear: The podcast is just as magical.
- Mallory and Jason start their journey, of course, on the Hogwarts Express, providing a brief refresher on what happened in these two chapters. Harry observes as Voldemort orders Nagini to kill Snape, collects Snape’s memories as the potions master dies, and watches in the Pensieve as the story of Snape and Lily Evans unfolds.
- They continue by diving into the Pensieve, where they analyze the central theme of this section of the book: understanding.
- Mallory and Jason then discuss the Seven, where they share their seven favorite insights and observations from this swath of chapters. Here, they examine the planning behind Lupin’s death, a Sorcerer’s Stone callback, and more.
- Finally, they award the House Cup to a worthy winner of the two chapters. This episode’s recipient is Severus Snape, whose secrets are revealed at long last.
Mallory and Jason will return soon for Episode 60 of Binge Mode: Harry Potter in which they will break down chapters 34-35 of Hallows.
