We live for Harry Potter fan theories…especially when they have to do with new perspectives after re-reading older books. The newest HP fan theory is about Harry’s very last memory of his mother, and after mulling it over ourselves, we think it makes a lot of sense!
We’ve all heard Harry recall the last moments just before his mother’s death a time or two, but we never questioned how a 15-month-old was able to retain so much information about the event until now. Well, now there’s a new theory that could explain exactly why Harry picked up so much, and it’s pretty darn startling!
As seen on E! Online, a Reddit user named Starjazo pondered whether or not a child at such a young age is able to have vivid memories, and it lead him to believe that Harry’s tragic memory isn’t his own, but rather Voldemort’s. And because we know that Harry and Voldemort are able to see into each other’s minds, we think the Reddit theorist could be onto something!
Just a little something to consider as you begin your holiday Harry Potter binge sesh!
