"[The] Harry Potter [Series], once it reached books six and seven, had more room to explore the nuances of good and evil – thoughts that the new series is capitalizing on. The early books simply painted Dumbledore as “good.” The sixth and seventh book (even parts of the overstuffed fifth) began to question that reductionist look. And so, because we’ve already been immersed in Rowling’s world collectively, and can rattle off just what a Patronus is, we can now join her as she plucks apart the beloved wizard to the complex human beneath."
