Favorite Scene: Goblet of Fire

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire49130

With Goblet of Fire, Harry’s turns completely upside down. He gets entered into a Tournament he can’t possibly win (or possibly survive), his best friend desserts him for a time and Voldemort is making some really nasty plans. From here on out, Harry must face his destiny of vanquishing Voldemort. Now, I know you are waiting with abated breath to see what my favorite scene is. For some it may by surprising. Unlike Azkaban, I picked a more emotional scene with no light-heartedness at all. Molly Weasley is the closest thing to a mother Harry ever had. When she comforts him in the hospital wing at the end of the Tournament, my heart was completely breaking. I believe, that was the first time I cried while reading a Harry Potter. This scene just completely blew me away. I was so upset that the movie version failed to included this emotional and (to me) pivotal scene. Without further ado, here it is (have a tissue handy):

My Favorite Scene:

The thing against which he had been fighting on and off every since he had come out of the maze was threatening to overpower him. He could feel a burning, prickling feeling in the inner corners of his eyes. He blinked and stared up at the ceiling.

“It wasn’t your fault, Harry,” Mrs. Weasley whispered.

“I told him to take the cup with me,” said Harry.

Now the burning feeling was in his throat too. He wished Ron would look away.

Mrs. Weasley set the potion down on the bedside cabinet, bent down, and put her arms around Harry. He had no memory of ever being hugged like this, as though by a mother. The full weight of everything he had seen that night seemed to fall in upon him as Mrs. Weasley held him to her. His mother’s face, his father’s voice, the sight of Cedric, dead on the ground all started spinning in his head until he could hardly bear it, until he was screwing up his face against the howl of misery fighting to get out of him.

This might be my most favorite scene in the entire series. Maybe because I am a mother myself…who knows. Molly Weasley is such a wonderful, beautiful and strong character. She may end up my favorite scene in Deathly Hallows. You will have to wait and see.

You know what? I love comments! What is your favorite scene from Goblet of Fire? Please let me know. Let the debate begin!
