Details From Harry Potter and the Cursed Child That Make No Sense
How Does Ron End Up with Padma Patil?
In one of the alternate futures, Ron ends up with Padma Patil instead of Hermione. The idea of slight variations in the past changing the present is not insane on its face, but this particular idea is at least a little confusing. In this timeline, he goes to the Yule Ball with Hermione instead of Krum, and the two never enter a romantic relationship as a result.
Still, Padma Patil feels a little bit like a name that was pulled out of a hat. Why Padma instead of someone like Lavender, who at the very least Ron showed some romantic interest in?
