Part of what people love about the Harry Potter franchise is just how much stuff is in there. There are countless little "Easter Eggs" and references that people are still discovering to this day.
Take, for example, something that reddit user jabthejesusfreak noticed in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
It happens when Ron and Hermione are looking for a button to turn off the Whomping Willow, a massive tree outside of Hogwarts that pummels anything that gets close to it.
“‘Crookshanks?’ wheezed Hermione, bent double, clothing her chest. ‘Are you a wizard, or what?’” reads the offending passage in question.
While that moment may not sound like much, it is actually very similar to what Ron said to Hermione six years ago, during the events of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.
In that book, Ron and Hermione face another aboral foe called the Devil's Snare, an entangling root that gets tighter the more you fight back. Hermione suggests that they use fire to burn it away to which Ron responds, "Have you gone mad? Are you a witch or not?" In other words, Hermione waited six long years to turn this insult back on Ron.
The redditor who made this discovery explains why this excites him so much.
He writes, "1. I can't believe I never caught this before. 2. You know Hermione had been waiting for the perfect spot to get Ron back for calling her out on not remembering that she could make fire in Sorcerer's Stone. 3. Just another great callback in the series finale."
Other redditors are just as excited.
"I have lost count of how many times I have read the book and I remember this moment very well, but I am MAD at myself for not making this connection earlier. Guess the books still surprise me. Just last month I discovered a coughing dustbin that I had completely missed on previous reads. Thank You," writes one of the discovery.
Most importantly though, it is inspiring people to do what they need to do.
