  • Dumbledore's Plan To Stop Voldemort Was Laid Out Early on Random Utterly Genius Foreshadowing In Harry Potter

    (#3) Dumbledore's Plan To Stop Voldemort Was Laid Out Early

    A brief interaction between Harry and Dumbledore at the end of Goblet of Fire directly set up one of the key components to Dumbledore's overall plan to stop Voldemort. At the end of Goblet of Fire, Harry spent several chapters completely exhausted, drifting in and out of lucidity.

    So, when he told Dumbledore that Voldemort came back to life using Harry's own blood, Harry mentioned seeing a brief moment of triumph in Dumbledore's eyes. This left many book readers confused. After all, it seemed like a strange moment for Dumbledore to be feeling triumphant about anything.

    However, Dumbledore's reaction actually set up the reveal in Deathly Hallows: that Voldemort using Harry's blood was what would kill the Dark Lord once and for all. It was, in fact, something Dumbledore secretly hoped Voldemort would do. A triumphant moment indeed.

  • Peter Pettigrew's Death Was Predicted By Dumbledore on Random Utterly Genius Foreshadowing In Harry Potter

    (#7) Peter Pettigrew's Death Was Predicted By Dumbledore

    Peter Pettigrew's demise in Deathly Hallows was foreshadowed and set up by Albus Dumbledore near the end of Prisoner of Azkaban. After Harry talked Lupin and Sirius out of killing Pettigrew during their confrontation in Prisoner of Azkaban, Dumbledore told Harry not to be too upset about Pettigrew escaping in the end. According to Dumbledore, Harry should look forward to the day when Pettigrew would have to honor his life debt.

    This, of course, came when Pettigrew let Harry and his friends escape from Malfoy Manor in Deathly Hallows. That action resulted in his auto-strangulation by Voldemort's metal hand. It was one of those book moments that was most noticeably missing from the film adaptations. 

  • We Should Have Guessed Dumbledore's Brother Owned The Hog's Head on Random Utterly Genius Foreshadowing In Harry Potter

    (#12) We Should Have Guessed Dumbledore's Brother Owned The Hog's Head

    Aberforth Dumbledore's connection to the Hog's Head was actually hinted at multiple times throughout the book series, specifically in both Order of the Phoenix and Goblet of Fire. Dumbledore only mentioned Aberforth once in the Harry Potter series, prior to his role in Deathly Hallows.

    Dumbledore mentioned that his brother was prosecuted for performing inappropriate charms on a goat. It was a strange no-context statement that seemed to come out of nowhere in the book, and it was never really mentioned again.

    However, when Harry and his friends visited the Hog's Head in Order of the Phoenix, J.K. Rowling took a moment to mention that the whole place smelled like a goat. It's about as subtle as foreshadowing can get, but the connection between those two small clues becomes apparent when looking back on the books as a whole.

  • Professor Trelawney's Superstitions Predicted Several Major Deaths on Random Utterly Genius Foreshadowing In Harry Potter

    (#2) Professor Trelawney's Superstitions Predicted Several Major Deaths

    One of Professor Trelawney's many superstitions actually predicted the deaths of Albus Dumbledore, Sirius Black, and Remus Lupin. This foreboding moment came about halfway through Prisoner of Azkaban, when Dumbledore stood up and invited Trelawney to join him and his 11 other table guests at dinner in the Great Hall. The Divination professor refused his offer, saying: "If I join the table, we shall be 13! Nothing could be more unlucky! Never forget that when 13 dine together, the first to rise will be the first to die!"

    This proved to be a tragic point of foreshadowing in the books. As it was later revealed in Prisoner of Azkaban, Ron had actually brought Scabbers with him to that dinner, meaning there were already 13 people at the table. Then Dumbledore stood up. This sort of foreshadowing happened two other times in the series, when both Lupin and Sirius were the first of 13 people to rise from a dinner table.

  • The Room Of Requirement Showed Up Earlier Than You Thought on Random Utterly Genius Foreshadowing In Harry Potter

    (#8) The Room Of Requirement Showed Up Earlier Than You Thought

    The Room of Requirement was indirectly introduced into the series for the first time by Albus Dumbledore in Goblet of Fire. Of course, the Room of Requirement wound up playing a huge role in Order of the PhoenixHalf-Blood Prince, and Deathly Hallows.

    Dumbledore mentioned The Room in passing, describing a time he stumbled upon a miraculous, secret bathroom in Hogwarts, only to never find it again. At first, it was shrugged off as nothing more than another funny magical Hogwarts moment. However, this disappearing room came back into play in a big way in subsequent installments of the series.
