On this week's episode, Vernon has a nervous breakdown and Hagrid makes a grand re-entrance into our story. We learn how Harry really lost his parents and that he's a wizard and instead of taking his anger out on Vernon and/or Petunia, Hagrid gives Dudley a makeover.
We take a closer look at Hagrid as a character in our Scouting Report, we theorize how this all would have gone down if Harry had just read the first letter he received in the hallway and as usual, we callout our favorite foreshadow moments and we give away meaningless awards.
