Harry Potter and the Cursed Child: What didn’t get fixed?


With Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, there is a lot of timelines that we see throughout the show. But did anything not get fixed by the end?

When you read or get to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, one thing is for certain: Changing time is never really a good idea. Albus and Scorpius go back in time to try and save Cedric Diggory and, through it all, end up changing timelines and their own lives.

So, at the end of the show when all is said and done, was anything not fixed? We don’t really know for sure that everything is fine, just that Harry and his son have begun to understand each other and that they’re working on their relationship. That’s great and all but Albus and Scorpius didn’t just change their own lives by going back in time.

There were multiple people who weren’t born, certain of their family members who died, and at the end of the day, we know they stopped themselves from interfering but you can’t help but wonder if that was enough to completely right their wrongs.

If watching Doctor Who has taught us all anything, it is that there is always something not quite right after you mess with the past. So maybe there is a slight shift in Harry’s relationship with Albus because, in this timeline, they were closer to begin with. Or maybe it is just the situation and everything is as it was but either way, the moral of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is just not to mess with time.
