Harry Potter and the Cursed Child: Let’s talk about the ending


When it comes to the ending of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, there are a lot of emotions around. So we’re talking about why it is so heartbreaking.

If you have yet to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, you may not know about the ending. If you haven’t read it, then you might not want to read on. So beware, there will be spoilers for the show here because we are going to talk about the saddest thing in the Harry Potter series.

Ready to move on? Well first, let’s talk about Harry. He’s seen some terrible things throughout his life. From not that great of a childhood to having to watch all those around him die in a fight he didn’t want to be in, it isn’t a great life.

So to watch him have to stand by as his parents are murdered by Lord Voldemort? That’s…not fun. For many, we read the play as soon as it came out. And if you’re like me, you didn’t revisit it before seeing the show. So you may have forgotten that Harry has to stand with his friends and watch as Voldemort kills Lily and James Potter.

While a very touching moment between Harry and those who have always been by his side, it hurts. Watching this boy see his mother and father getting killed isn’t something any Harry Potter fan wants to experience. And it really shows how tragic Harry is as a character.

So while we love the Harry Potter series, the ending to Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a painful reminder of how much Harry has struggled. He is sassy and short tempered because he’s been through a lot. If not with his children then with the dark lord himself.
