Details From Harry Potter and the Cursed Child That Make No Sense
Ron Is a Non-Factor in the Story
While you could probably say this about some of the original Harry Potter books, it’s especially true in Cursed Child. Ron is in the play much less than Hermione, and his role is also much less consequential. He’s essentially there to tell some jokes, and to live a sad life when we see what he’s like without Hermione.
He does get roped into the final battle, but it feels like a strange choice given how little he’s had to do in the story thus far. It seems like, given how much Harry and Hermione do in the play, they should have found a way to make Ron a little bit more central.
