Details From Harry Potter and the Cursed Child That Make No Sense
Why Does Hermione Hide the Time Turner Where it Can Be Found?
Hermione is one of the smartest witches alive. We see that and are told that over and over again in the first seven Harry Potter books, and even in Cursed Child. It doesn’t make any sense that Hermione, the smart witch who’s also Minster of Magic, would keep the illegal time turner anywhere where anyone else could grab it.
She hides it in a bookcase. Sure, it’s an enchanted bookcase, but if it’s a bookcase that can conceivably be opened, it’s too simple a hiding spot. She should have hidden it somewhere no one would ever look for it. Instead, she left clues that led Scorpius and Albus right to it.
