Harry spends the remainder of the holiday at the Burrow. It would be quite peaceful if there weren't a steady stream of terrible stories in the news, including the [[BusCrash death of Karkaroff]] and [[ChekhovsGun disappearance of the wandmaker Ollivander]]. Soon enough, it's time for a trip to Diagon Alley to buy supplies. Bill has saved Harry the need to visit the bank amid the high security and withdrawn some cash for him. They arrive, and are joined by Hagrid who has come to escort them. Diagon Alley is not the vibrant place it used to be, with many shops bordered up or adorned with Ministry posters.

They visit Madam Malkin's robe shop, where ([[Recap/HarryPotterAndThePhilosophersStoneC5DiagonAlley not for the first time]]) Harry comes face-to-face with Malfoy. An argument breaks out between Harry and both Malfoy and his mother. The latter pair end up storming out. The group then visits Fred and George's joke shop. It's easy to spot, as it's the only place filled with life in the street. Fred and George meet with them and show Harry round. Besides the joke products, they also sell a serious line of defensive products. [[ChekohvsGun Among those include]] powder for creating darkness and devices for causing a distraction.

Harry gets a glimpse outside and sees Malfoy walking down the street on his own. He is instantly suspicious. He takes Ron and Hermione aside. They hide under the cloak and follow Malfoy. He goes to Knockturn Alley, to Borgin and Burkes, where [[Recap/HarryPotterAndTheChamberOfSecretsC4AtFlourishAndBLotts Harry has spied on Malfoy before]]. Malfoy is talking to Mr Borgin, saying he needs help and instructions for fixing an object. He insists can't bring the object to the shop. Mr Borgin says it would be tough to fix. He seems to agree to help, and Malfoy also asks that he does not sell a similar object that is kept in the shop. He mentions someone called "Fenrir Greyback" in order to threaten Borgin into complying with his instructions. He then leaves, looking pleased with himself.

Hermione tries going in to investigate, but Mr Borgin realises she is not interested in buying stuff and throws her out. They sneak back to the joke shop, arriving in just enough time to avoid causing too much suspicion.
