Just in case you’ve been living under a rock for the past year, let’s start this by saying there’s spoilers galore in this post and I have a lot to say, so this may not be put together very well. Just roll with it.
Let’s start with a quick breakdown of this plot. It’s set way after the last Harry Potter book, in fact, we’re following our favourite characters kid’s which should be a really special and significant experience. But I’m afraid for me it just wasn’t. For one main reason, that we’ll get to later.
Albus and Scorpus (Harry and Malfoy’s son’s respectively) steal a time turner from the ministry & go back in time to the Triwizard Tournament to save Cedric.
This stem’s from Albus’s serious daddy issues. He thinks his dad is being cruel by not going back to save his friend and stop all the pain his death caused his family.
Obviously it wouldn’t be much of a story if it worked, so the first time is a complete fail. They go back again to the mermaid lake to stop Cedric completing that task, which in theory will stop him advancing to his death. But as a result, he emerges embarrassed and humiliated from the lake and then becomes a deatheater. What the f….
The rest of the story is them trying to fix their previous mistakes & leads them to Godrics Hollow.
I should have mentioned before that the ‘cursed child’ in the title is hinted at being Scorpius the entire book. But dun dun dun, it’s not. Its this one character we know as Cedric’s cousin. But she’s not actually his cousin, she’s Voldemort’s love child with Bellatrix. The little bitch lied to Albus and Scorpius to get them to fuck up the future to make her dad king of the fucking world.
How this all gets’s resolved is quite well done though so I won’t ruin that. But I do need to address Albus and Scorpius’ relationship. & WHY THEY WERNT TOGETHER?! They had the kind of friendship that was well on it’s way to true love. & I shipped it so hard. But we were reminded constantly that Hermione’s daughter is only in this story to really drive home the fact that Scorpius isn’t gay. & doesn’t play any bigger role
I’d really like to know what you thought of this script. I enjoyed it, though the review may not make it seem like that, but I promise I did.
I’ve also already made a video about this, that I will leave right here for you’re viewing pleasure.
