This week on the Binge, I covered Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets' 9th chapter: The Writing on the Wall.
In this chapter Filtch is beside himself about Mrs. Norris who we find out is petrified and he blames Harry immediately as our trio was found at the scene of the crime by seemingly the entire school taking the wrong route to wherever any of them were supposed to be going. Lockhart is an idiot, Dumbledore shows amazing patience while still crushing Snape's dream of kicking Harry out of Quidditch (because that matters). We learn about the legend of the Chamber of Secrets and people immediately think Harry is an evil dark wizard boy.
I also shine a light (Lumos) on Filtch. Is he really a poltergeist???
As usual I do some Divination foreshadowing, give/take house points, and callout the parts of the chapter that are utterly Riddikulus! (all the puns).
