[[spoiler:In the sixth book, Harry tracks Draco Malfoy to see him arrange the repairs of the Vanishing Cabinet, implied to be the same one he hid in. Also, the opal necklace almost killed Katie Bell, courtesy of Malfoy]].
* Ginny kindles her affection for Harry. [[spoiler:They finally get together in his sixth year.]]
* The trio spend the year suspecting Malfoy of scheming. [[spoiler:In the sixth year, Harry suspects him again and he's right]].
* Harry and Ron deduce from the decorations in the trophy room that Tom Riddle was a Head Boy when the Chamber was opened and must have known about it. [[spoiler:They search for the Half-Blood Prince there, but find nothing. It turns out to be Snape]].
* Dobby is introduced, shown to be capable of potent magic such as apparition without the limitations that human wizards have, and freed. All of those are crucial elements in the final book.
* Draco mentions that the Malfoys have a secret chamber in which to hide their Dark artefacts in their home, but the Ministry agents do not find it. In Book Six, this room is mentioned again.
* Lucius Malfoy uses a dark artifact to his own ends in an intricate plot. [[spoiler:The destruction of said artifact [[SpannerInTheWorks backfires on him and his master]] in the sixth and seventh book, where it turns out to be a SoulJar belonging to Voldemort.]]
* After Dumbledore's expulsion, Malfoy suggests to Snape that he applies for Headmaster. [[spoiler:This is where he winds up in the seventh book]].

* Dumbledore tells Harry that he suspects a part of Voldemort may live inside him. [[spoiler:This proves true and Harry turns out to be an unintentional Horcrux]].

* Hermione makes a list containing the names of all the people agreeing to be in the DA. It's mentioned it that signing it feels unusually binding. [[spoiler:Hermione cursed the list so that anyone who revealed the DA to the Ministry would break out in a rash. Not just any rash, either. It (permanently, per WordOfGod) writes 'Sneak' across their forehead.]]
