Harry Potter: 5 Moments Hermione Was A Genius (& 5 She Wasn’t)

Hermione Granger is one of the most popular literary characters of all time. She is the female protagonist and one of the leading characters of the Harry Potter series. She is also considered the brightest witch of her age and has helped Harry and Ron out of numerous scuffles throughout the franchise’s history.

If it weren’t for Hermione, there is every chance that Harry and Ron would have died a long time ago, or at least gotten themselves into way more trouble then they already did. Hermione has had her fair share of genius moments throughout the series, but she has also had a few not-so-genius moments too.

Harry Potter is the main character of the popular franchise, also named Harry Potter. He’s a literary hero and one of the most beloved characters of all time, along with many of the other characters from the series. Daniel Radcliffeportrayed Harry in all seven main franchise films.

One of the great things about Harry is that he was a well-rounded character. He wasn’t all-powerful, he struggled in school, he was lazy and procrastinated often, but he was also loyal, brave, and loved so deeply that it made him a formidable enemy to the darkest wizard of all time. He’s a great hero who has had his fair share of genius moments, and some that weren’t so smart.

Gilmore Girls: 5 Times Emily Was The Best (& 5 Times She Was The Worst)

Depending on when you first watched Gilmore Girls your opinion on Emily Gilmore may have evolved over the years. Sometimes the show paints her as the villain and frequent antagonist in the lives of Rory and Lorelai. Lorelai would especially have you believe that Emily Gilmore is evil, at least during the early seasons of the series.

But when watching the show now it’s easier to understand what Emily’s motives were for certain choices she made. Sometimes you can even agree that Lorelai is acting immature over her distaste for her own mother. That’s not to say Emily was always a saint, she did make some bad decisions during the show’s run.

Riverdale: 10 Worst Things The Teens Have Done, Ranked

Riverdale is about to begin its fourth season on The CW and we’re hoping that the wacky adventures of these teens continue onwards for many more years. The series is based on the popular Archie comics but they take a decidedly darker approach then what you might be used to reading about.

The adventures of Archie, Betty, Veronica, Jughead, and Cheryl go in a totally new direction in the edgy CW series that, more often than not, leans into horror tropes. Last season alone dealt with a cult and the show has spawned multiple serial killers across only three seasons. We’re taking a look at some of the worst things the show’s teenagers have done thus far.

Harry Potter: 10 Meanest Things The Hufflepuffs Ever Did

Poor Hufflepuff. Despite the fact most Hufflepuff students are notorious for being kind and considerate, Hufflepuff still often gets the shorthand of the stick. Their house is commonly considered a joke due to not being known for bravery, cunning, or intelligence, like the other houses.

Even main characters in Harry Potter typically believe that Hufflepuffs are somehow beneath the other houses and considered less skilled or worthy. We know that’s not true. There have been plenty of clever witches and wizards sorted in Hufflepuff. Helga Hufflepuff herself was extremely altruistic and a bright, notable witch. However, as if just to show the range of Hufflepuffs, they have also been responsible for some surprisingly mean acts.

Harry Potter: 5 Times Dumbledore Actually Helped Harry Defeat Voldemort (& 5 He Accidentally Hindered Him)

Albus Dumbledore is considered one of the most powerful and brilliant minds in the wizarding world. He was responsible for getting rid of the dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald and considered the only wizard that Lord Voldemort ever feared. During his time at Hogwarts, Dumbledore was a brilliant student and eventually a Prefect himself.

He became headmaster of the school and a vital part of the story we all know and love about Harry Potter. But despite the way the book presents him, as a hero and one of Harry’s greatest allies, there is much debate about Dumbledore’s morality, motives, and his treatment of Harry throughout the series. In some ways, he gave Harry every tool he needed to defeat Voldemort, but in others, he was certainly a hindrance.
