'Harry Potter': This Easter egg proves Snape was good all along

It's about time we admit it: we'll never get over 'Harry Potter'. This year marks seven years since the final film 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2' premiered, but various theories, Easter eggs and secret message still sweep the internet today.

One of the most exciting scenes from the Battle of Hogwarts was most definitely the confrontation between Snape and McGonagall. The two powerful professors duelled it out whilst Dumbledore's army seek to control the situation, and in a moment so quick that it's escaped us all of these years, the potions master deflects a charm at two deatheaters directly behind him, Alecto and Amycus Carrow. Take a look at the scene in question in the following GIF:

It looks like an accident, but we think it's too much of a coincidence that Snape manages to take out the only other deatheaters present before fleeing himself. After the scene, Dumbledore's army take shelter in the castle and await the arrival of Voldemort.

No rest for the wicked

Whilst Snape might've finally gotten the break he deserved, the same can't be said for J.K. Rowling. The author's known for clashing on Twitter with various fans, and this week's no different. Rowling is under attack for liking a tweet referring to transexual women as men in dresses; Her agents have revealed it was a "clumsy and middle-aged moment" and that "it's not the first time she has favourited by holding her phone incorrectly" (The Sun).

It's not the first time Rowling has found herself at the eye of the storm. Just last month, the author received backlash for revealing there'd be no overt mention of Dumbledore's sexuality in the upcoming 'Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald'. The film releases on 16th November.
