Mercy: The Only One He Ever Feared (Book 5, Chapter 36)

Book 5 Chapter 36 HPST Series 2

This week, Vanessa and Casper explore the theme of Mercy in Chapter 36 of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix! They discuss Dumbledore’s grand return, Lupin’s gentle explanation, and Bellatrix’s punishment! Throughout the episode we consider the question: what distinguishes mercy from things like compassion or care? Next week we're reading Chapter 37, The Lost Prophecy, through the theme of Control with special guest Micaela Blei!
