Details From Harry Potter and the Cursed Child That Make No Sense
What Makes Albus Want to Save Cedric?
Albus goes on this elaborate time heist with the goal of changing the past and saving Cedric. What’s unclear is exactly why he decides this mission in particular is so important to him. He never knew Cedric, and while his death is a tragedy, there’s not a ton within the story to justify the idea that Albus would become so obsessed with saving his life that he’d risk everything else.
The idea is in part that Albus is behaving recklessly, but he’s also behaving in a way that defies logic. Why go back for Cedric at all? There are so many other things he could have tried to fix.
