    Harry & Co.'s Scramble To Battle Recounts Previous Fights

    From Redditor u/kenneth_kimmeth:

    In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II, during the part where Harry, Hermione and Ron are running through the battle to get to Snape (basically after the protective bubble collapses) the whole scene of their running is a recollection of all the films.

    First they encounter a troll (in the bathroom), then spiders (in the forbidden forest), then Frenrir the werewolf (like Lupin), then dead Lavender Brown (innocent death like Cedric), then a huge swarm of dementers chased away by the Order of the Phoenix and DA, and they go find Snape (The Half-Blood Prince).
