Details From Harry Potter and the Cursed Child That Make No Sense
Where Did Hugo Weasley and Teddy Lupin Go?
Whatever you think of the epilogue at the end of Deathly Hallows, you at least know that Ron and Hermione had a younger son named Hugo, and that Harry and Ginny had also had a huge role in raising Teddy Lupin, Remus and Tonks’s son. Although both characters appear in the epilogue, they are entirely absent from Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
While the goal of cutting characters to keep the story focused makes sense, it is strange to cut characters featured in the very scene that serves as the starting point for the play. They should be involved in the story, even if it’s only in the most minor way possible.
