Details From Harry Potter and the Cursed Child That Make No Sense
Who Gave the Second Prophecy?
The most prominent prophecies in the first seven books both come from the same source. Sybill Trelawney may not be a great seer, but she does have the ability to produce genuine prophecies, as she did with two prophecies relating to Voldemort. In Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, we get another prophecy, but this time, it’s not totally clear where that prophecy comes from.
This may seem like a small nitpick, but it speaks to the way the overall story feels a little bit less artfully structured. The original seven books made every detail feel essential. In Cursed Child, some questions just don’t seem to deserve answers.
