Malfoy returns to classes during a Potions lesson. Snape seems to be behaving worse than ever. He makes Ron and Harry do work for Malfoy, who supposedly is still injured from the Hippogriff but quietly admits he's just playing it on to get Hagrid sacked. Snape continues to bully Neville. When Neville's potion goes wrong, he tells Neville he will have to feed the potion to his toad. Neville does manage to produce a decent potion after Hermione quietly helps him and his toad survives. Hermione continues to be unexpectedly vanishing and reappearing again, and won't explain why.

As another taunt, Malfoy asks Harry if he's going to get "revenge" against Black. Harry has no idea why he might owe Black revenge. Hermione continues to be unexpectedly vanishing and reappearing again, and won't explain why.

They go to Defence Against the Dark Arts. Lupin announces they will have a practical lesson. He takes them to the staff room, where they meet Snape. Snape doesn't resist a chance to bully Neville even in front of another teacher. Lupin replies by saying that Neville will help with the "first stage of the operation". He shows them a wardrobe which has a Boggart hiding inside it. A Boggart is a ShapeShifter that will take the shape of the nearest's person's [[YourWorstNightmare worst fear]]. Harry realises that for himself, this would be a Dementor. Lupin instructs the class to say "''Riddikulus''" while thinking of a way to turn the Boggart funny.

Lupin guides Neville as he gets the first go at facing the Boggart. His worst fear is Snape, so Lupin suggests he imagines his grandmother's clothes while facing the Boggart. The Boggart, assuming the form of Professor Snape, is let out of the wardrobe. Neville successfully uses the spell to dress it in his grandmother's clothes. The rest of the class then follow, taking it in turns to see the Boggart take the form of their worst fear, and then turning it into something funny. However, Lupin stops Harry from facing the Boggart (Hermione also misses out). We get a brief glimpse of Lupin's worst fear (something that looks like a crystal ball) before Neville rushes forward to finish off the Boggart. Harry is left embarrassed that Lupin stopped him facing the Boggart, worried that Lupin thinks he is a weakling after seeing him [[Recap/HarryPotterAndThePrisonerOfAzkaban fainting on the train]].
