** JimDale in the American audiobook release, had to record two different takes of the closing seconds of the last disc (the part where he was actually reading the story and the part where he was reciting the "This has been..." spiel), because he was starting to get emotional as he read it. As he narrates the last couple of paragraphs, you can just ''hear'' him slow down, at first almost imperceptibly around the time he notes that Harry waved to his children, but the pace he reads the last paragraph was about half his usual tempo of reading, and then the last sentence...

** Pottermore's biography of [[spoiler:Lupin]] makes this scene more depressing by providing more details: [[spoiler:Lupin was defeated in a duel with Dolohov because he was out of practice after months of hiding with his family, instead of adventuring around with the Trio. [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Which means, in a twisted way, Harry was partially responsible for his death.

*** Counting that, Harry had something to do with the deaths of all four Marauders. James died trying to protect his son; Sirius died in battle trying to rescue Harry after he was manipulated by Voldemort; Peter died because he dared to show mercy for Harry sparing him four years previously, and Lupin died partially because Harry told him to go back home.]]]]

** Even worse -- the trio then run past her and a giant smashes open half the wall... which falls ''exactly where Lavender is''. If Greyback didn't kill her, being ''squashed by a falling wall definitely did!''

*** Snape's face when [[spoiler: [=McGonagall=] starts to duel him. Not only does he know she is prepared to kill him, he falters a bit as he raises his wand, like he is afraid of hurting her.]]

* The fate of Cadmus Peverell. While Antioch was mostly interested in power and quickly paid the price for it, what Cadmus wanted was to be reunited with his fiancée, who had died prematurely. While he still made the mistake of choosing his prize partially out of a desire to humiliate Death, his true motive was much more sympathetic. When he saw her again, she was {{CameBackWrong cold and distant]], and this slowly led Cadmus to madness and then suicide. What's worse, when Harry uses the Stone, [[spoiler: he's comforted by his parents and friends instead]]. Learning that Dumbledore made much the same mistake as Cadmus with the Stone (so eager to see his lost loved ones that he completely ignores any potential consequences) pushes it further.
