I love passionate fans as they are a constant source of new information, reveals and theories on the fandoms they are most passionate about. One very passionate fandom is of course the wizarding world of Harry Potter. These are the types of fans that dissect every word of the books, every second of film, every piece from Pottermore and of course everything that comes from J.K Rowling as they look for any little nugget of information that may pertain to the world in some way.
One recent theory from the world of Harry Potter involves a little someone by the name of Professor Slughorn and if you recall, he was kind of the reason that Tom Riddle was able to figure out the whole horcrux thing. He caused some real issues for the wizarding world and helped lead Voldemort on an educational path that would see him split his soul into the horcruxes. That’s not all he may be involved in (though, to be fair it’s an awful lot) and a when he talks about the love potion being the most dangerous in the room it may not seem like a lot but hold on…maybe, just maybe it’s actually a lot.
This recent video from Super Carlin Brothers examines Slughorn and his involvement with the love potion and how his mastery of potions may have indeed started the Voldemort curse to begin with. It’s a fantastic theory and one that I think may very much be true but like everything, until it’s confirmed it’s nothing more than a very solid theory.
So, what do you think? Does Slughorn carry a secret far worse than that of revealing the nature of Horcruxes to Tom Riddle? Share your thoughts about this Harry Potter theory in the comments below.
