Re: Why did Snape kill Dumbledore?

This obvious question may have already been answered, it may be that I am being dense - but having just re-read HBP the question popped into my head:

"Why was draco sent to kill Dumbledore and not Harry"???


I realise that LV knew Dumbledore was after the Horcruxes because they fought over one of them at the beginning of the book, but throughout all of the books LV has been hell bent on killing Harry as a solution to all his problems.

Why wasn't Draco also ordered to kill Harry as well, that makes more sence.

I believe Snape did kill DD but it was all pre-planned. We may never know how or why, but DD is dead and Snape has had to flee and is now stuck on the wrong side. He must be very scared.

Re: Why did Snape kill Dumbledore?

I can't figure that out either, why he wasn't sent to kill Harry.

And I can't figure out why Voldemort would have wanted Dumbledore dead, when in the prior book he had been in such a tizzy to get the prophecy, and Dumbledore is the one that heard it. Of course I think the Death Eaters snatched Professor Trelawny, but that isn't a guarenttee of learning anything.

Re: Why did Snape kill Dumbledore?

OOh , I had forgotten about Trelawney! I remember thinking as Harry ran to get his cloak after seeing Dumbledore that he had left her standing in the hall by the Room Of Requirment. He told her to stay there, and then never returned !! Maybe that's where the story will go - they took Trelawney!!

Anybody elae think it's wierd that DD was the target and not Harry??

Well no one really thought Draco could do it, did they?

Re: Why did Snape kill Dumbledore?

Draco was ordered to kill Dumbledore to get him out of the way. He has been protecting Harry for years and LV wants a clear shot at killing Harry. I have wondered why send someone to kill one of the two most powerful wizards when you must be nearly sure that he will not be able to do the job. This must have something to do with revenge for Lucius' failure in the dept of mysteries.

Re: Why did Snape kill Dumbledore?

Yeh, that's true. I did think LV naver realy expected Draco to kill DD and that's where Snape comes in to do the job (which DD knew all about and was willing to go along with that's why he and Snape argues - Snape didn't really want to kill DD hence the look of hatred and revultion on his face when he did it) But why then did LV not also say "Oh yeh and by the way - do Harry in while ur at it" ??

I think LV wants to kill Harry himself - but surely this was the best chance he's ever had , why didn't he make an appearance himself?

Snape killed DD beacuse either he or DD had read Dracos mind (or his mother's at Spinner's End) and knew LV whole plan and DD knew he had to sacrafice himself to somehow help Harry.
