In a recent interview J.K. Rowling stated that two major characters would die in the seventh book, the last of the series. I personally think it will be Voldemort and Snape. She would be stupid not to kill off Harry's arch-nemesis (Voldemort), evil cannot triumph over good. Then again, Rowling is full of surpises, she proved that by killing off Dumbledore.

What are your opinions on character deaths and plot lines for the final novel?

As long as it's not Ron or Draco, I don't care.

I hope Hermione dies. I hate her. >: [ But of course, she wouldn't mess with the trio.

She'll probably have a cliffhanger of some sorts, which is why I don't think Voldemort will be one to go.

I think there will be either: A. Hagrid and Voldermort will die, followed by a 8 book --Dougbht Harry dies....

B. Snape disapears, while Voldermort and Hagrid die. --Providing this is the "end"

Hermiones movie charater kinda "sucks".

1. Voldemort will die. HP is a story about good versus evil, and in that context evil cannot be allowed to live on. 2. Harry will die too. He will die when killing Voldemort and his death will close the story (Rowling herself said that the story will end in book 7). It will be like two forces sort of negating each other.

I don't think it will be either Ron or Hermione. Harry has already lost, his parents, Sirius and Dumbledore. Killing off another person close to Harry will be too melodramatic. It's not going to be Draco either. By not being able to kill Dumbledore, he has shown that he's not ready to be so evil. I think he must redeem himself in some way other than dying. If he dies, he will not be able to learn his lesson. It's not gonna be Lupin because he's not important enough to the story. As sad as his death would be, it wouldn't mean anything. Alternatively, it could be Arthur Weasley dying. He's in the Order and is bound to fight the Death Eaters in some way. His death would bring the notion of suffering directly into the Weasley family and perhaps make them understand better what Harry is enduring and what he must do. It could also be Wormtail. He was spared in book three and Dumbledore said he was going to repay Harry in some way. Wormtail could sacrifice himself to save Harry from dying or something and thus aloowing his to fight Voldemort.

actually she said that two people she did not intend to kill initially will die, so there might be more deaths not just two. i dont think she will kill harry that would be too much for the small children , they were crying when dumbledore died.

I was toying with the "Harry and Voldemort negate eachother" thing, too. I doubt Snapes death myself. Voldemort is obvious, perhaps Bellarix Black? Harry has a good motive to kill her, for taking down Sirius. The other option is Wormtail, in some pathetic final attempt to die on the good side.

I think we have to distinguish between 'deaths' and 'important deaths'. The magical comunity is in a state of open war. I think it highly likely that there will be more than two deaths.

And I donøt think it will be snape either. I think he's still on the good side. When the story is over he will still be the sour potions/DAtDA teacher. He belongs at Hogwards.

They're not major characters though(snape is but not the others). I think voldemort and someone else but im not sure. Killing harry would be stupid though.
