INT. MINISTRY OF MAGIC - ATRIUM - DAY ... atrium of the Ministry of Magic, addressing a sea of MINISTRY EMPLOYEES as REPORTERS scribble intently. SCRIMGEOUR These are dark times, there is no denying. Our world has perhaps faced no greater threat than it does today. But I say this to our citizenry: we, ever your servants, continue to defend your liberty and repel the forces that would seek to take it from you. Your Ministry remains strong... CAMERA FAVORS a pair of wizards, YAXLEY and PIUS THICKNESSE, who turn away as we PULL OUT of the PHOTOGRAPH and SAIL once more THROUGH the turning pages, the headlines growing grimmer, the faces more HAUNTED, until, finally, we emerge from the Prophet and find it in the hands of...

Hermione glances through the doorway to the stairs beyond. Her MOTHER’S SHADOW clings to the wall, trembling within another SHADOW, that of a WIND-TOSSED TREE. It is strangely beautiful and Hermione seems transfixed... Coming, Mum. HERMIONE

PARLOR - LATE AFTERNOON (MOMENTS LATER, RAINING) As Hermione descends the stairs, MRS. GRANGER exits the kitchen with a teapot. MRS. GRANGER Don’t you look lovely. All packed? Hermione nods and watches her mother set the teapot on the table in front of the television. Just then, MR. GRANGER steps out holding a biscuit tin. MR. GRANGER Are you sure these biscuits are sugar-free? MRS. GRANGER Quite sure, dear. See the big bold letters that say ‘Sugar Free’? Dead giveaway. MR. GRANGER Yes. (passing Hermione) Hello, kitten. Don’t you look lovely. Mm. Hermione smiles wanly as her father gives her a peck on the head, then joins her mother on the sofa opposite the television. An AUSTRALIAN WILDLIFE PROGRAM PLAYS. TELEVISION (V.O.) ... the bandicoot has small pointed ears and a long snout from which it emits a distinctive trumpet sound when agitated... MRS. GRANGER Darling, don’t be suspicious the biscuits taste so good, be grateful the company’s so clever... Hermione looks away from the screen, studies her mother and father. Slowly, she reaches into the tiny bag and withdraws her wand. Taking two steps forward, she points it toward the back of their heads. Hand trembling, she SPEAKS, her VOICE barely a WHISPER:

Ron takes out his wand... when Hermione raises her hand, stopping him. Her eyes rise. Her breath catches. Ron and Harry look. Clinging to the branches of the trees above, almost as if a part of the trees themselves, are... SNATCHERS. A wand BLOOMS above, illuminates the face of Scabior. Hermione’s red scarf, now faded and filthy, dangles from his neck. He presses it to his grimy nose, inhales and GRINS. SCABIOR Hello, beautiful. 156 EXT. FOREST - DUSK (MOMENTS LATER) Harry, Ron and Hermione DASH through the trees. As they diverge, we CUT BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN THE THREE: Hermione, swift as the wind, flickers through the trees as Scabior pursues her. Harry slashes through the river, looks up, and sees a Snatcher leap across the divide from one tree to another. Ron pounds through thick brush, over a fallen tree. The forest grows more dense, the shadows thicken. Spells splinter through the trees, ropes of light lace the night. Hermione stumbles, regains her footing, finds herself in a clearing. Another figure pelts toward her: Harry. 156
HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY... - PT. 1 - Rev. 6/11/10 CONTINUED:
They freeze briefly, then the clearing explodes with light as spells ricochet. They hit the ground. Hear the Snatchers closing in. Harry looks to Hermione. The TIP of her WAND GLOWS and her face blooms in the darkness, looking mildly demonic. She reaches out, STRIPS HIS GLASSES FROM HIS FACE, then points her wand... at him. A BURST of WHITE LIGHT strikes him in the eyes. As her wand goes dark... 157 EXT. FORTRESS - NIGHT ... he is flying toward a fortress, gliding around the high walls, up to the topmost window of the highest tower. He passes through the window -- little more than a slit -- and... 158 INT. CELL - CONTINUOUS ACTION - NIGHT ... finds a SKELETAL FIGURE lying beneath a ragged blanket. The figure stirs, looks up, and grins with broken teeth. It is the young man -- the thief -- grown old. Grindelwald. GRINDELWALD Ah, Tom, I thought you would come one day. But surely you must know I no longer have what you seek... A SHADOW -- Voldemort’s -- falls across Grindelwald. VOLDEMORT If not you, then who? GRINDELWALD You’re so innocent, Tom. Like a schoolboy. There’s so much you don’t understand... VOLDEMORT Tell me, Grindelwald. Tell me where to find it! Tell me who possesses it! The name, Grindelwald! The name! GRINDELWALD Can’t you guess, Tom? It lies with him, of course. Buried within the earth. It is he who possesses it, even in death. Your old friend and mine... Dumbledore. 158 157

HARRY He knows where it is, You-KnowWho. He’ll have it by the end of the night. He’s found the Elder Wand. As Hermione stares in stunned disbelief, figures emerge from the trees. Ron is shoved to the ground next to them. Scabior strips Harry and Hermione of their wands. RON Don’t touch her! A fist hits Ron hard. Stop it! It’s GREYBACK. HERMIONE
SCABIOR Your boyfriend’ll get worse than that if he doesn’t behave, lovely. Scabior paints her face with light then casts it on Harry.
