Added DiffLines:

** The confrontation scene between Harry and Snape once [[spoiler: he returns to Hogwarts]]. Dear fucking hell. [[spoiler: To basically explain, Harry slams and calls out Snape for being the one who killed Dumbledore, the man who trusted him and "left his life in his hands". Upon a second watch, you can tell Snape ''is in damn pain'', especially considering his motivation of protecting the son of Lily Potter]].
*** [[spoiler: [=McGonagall=] attacking Snape, while a CrowningMomentOfAwesome, is a bit depressing, considering she learns a man she interacted and ''knew'' had a close friendship with the man she respected and ''devoted friendship'' with, had killed him. Hats off to Maggie, her face just ''screams'' "How could you do this to him?!", similar to Harry's freak out in HBP]].

** More specifically, [[IronLady Minerva McGonagall]] ''screaming her heart out,'' such a terrible sound that Harry almost [[spoiler:breaks his cover]], all while [[TheDragon Bellatrix]] cackles.

The worst part is him reflecting to himself that in spite of what he's learned, he still can't let go of his hope that Dumbledore really did care about him.

** It's pitiful listening to Ron [[SayMyName call out for Hermione]], the girl he loves, as she's being tortured.

** Then immediately afterwards, when the fighting breaks out again, her and Lucius running through the battle, not lifting a finger to help Voldemort's side, screaming for Draco. Two of the most devout Death Eaters in the series no longer care about Voldemort's war or blood purity or anything else and are simply reduced to two frantic parents desperately searching for their son. It was a moment that made two of the most unsympathetic characters in the books very human.
* The scene where Lupin comes to find the [[FanNickname Golden Trio]] in Grimauld Place and ends up arguing with Harry. The fact that kind, brave, good-natured Remus Lupin is trying to [[spoiler: abandon his wife and unborn child because of how much he believes that he's dragged them down]] shows just how crippling his self-worth issues can be and how much he suffers from the FantasticRacism of the wizarding community.

** Watch Hermione's father when she Oblivates her parents: for a slight moment realization has dawned on Mr. Granger's face before it slips into the blank-slated, glass-eyed expression of someone being Obliviated. Right before Hermione vanishes from his memories he knew that she was using magic on them and one can only imagine the feeling of dread and/or betrayal that his daughter would use magic on her own parents before she's gone from his memories. He might have even realized he was forgetting her but the process was too quick for him to tell her to stop and ask her what she was doing. Is surely relieving to know that WordOfGod stated that, after Voldemort's defeat, she was able to find her parents and restore their memories.



* It's not much compared to other examples, but Harry finding out that [[spoiler: he must die]]. Unlike in the book, where he handled it with semi-detached calm, you can just ''see'' this news hit Harry like a train. His first few movements are jerky, and he has a hand over his heart for half the scene... never once saying a word, yet conveying it all anyhow.

*** Made worse, because, in that moment, you realize Harry needs a hug from his mother more than anyone in the series ever as. He's walking to his death. Voldemort will probably torture him, or worse, set Nagini on him. Just some sort of reassurance, some sort of touch, you can see on his face as he starts forward, stumbling, towards his mom. And, of course, he's denied that little comfort as he walks to his death, sacrificing all.

* The opening. Snape, standing on the parapet of Hogwarts, watching as the children march in like soldiers under the watchful eyes of the Dementors and Death Eaters. The look on his face ... just ... gah. He looks utterly gutted.

** Then it's followed with opening title accompanied by a soundtrack that sounds like "Sorry, it's going to end". And the next scene is Harry seeing Dobby's graveyard.

* The last bit of the ''dedication''. "And to you, if you have stuck with Harry until the very end." Fans was crying ''before'' ''page'' ''one''.

** In that particular scene, he casts his Patronus and it's revealed to be [[spoiler: a doe, the same a Lily's patronus]]. When he cast the Patronus charm, he flourished his wand in a way that we've never really seen Snape doing. It subtly shows how no matter cold and stoic Snape acts, he still has plenty of style in him.

* There's something very sad about Filch's useless attempts to sweep the Great Hall after the Battle. But at the same time, it's pretty funny. It's like seeing someone put a band-aid on a broken leg.
