    From Redditor u/banammockHana:

    Harry did Luna wrong.

    I know some people think that Harry is a great guy for occasionally including Luna in the gang's shenanigans, but I don't think he went far enough.

    Luna went with them to the Ministry in Book 5 risking her life for them. They come back and she reveals people have been stealing her things and he's just like,"Oh, well now I'm not feeling so upset about my personal problems, but I'm not going to do anything to help."

    Then they come back the next year and completely abandon her, despite knowing that she doesn't have any real friends. She asks them if they'd do another Dumbledore's Army meet-up (which they totally could have done on top of Defense Against the Dark Arts classes now that it's legal) and when they tell her no, she said it was almost like having friends.

    Instead of feeling sorry for her, Harry's like, "Wow, another awkward Luna moment."

    No, you [jerk], that was your moment to save her!

    Don't even get me started on how they abandoned her in Deathly Hallows.

    S.P.E.W. Was An Important Subplot That Deserved Film Time

    From Redditor u/TrixieBug420:

    I think that S.P.E.W. highlights Hermione's moral beliefs that she is unwilling to compromise... regardless of the new world she has been accepted in. She is being true to herself and fighting for the rights of a group of creatures she believes to have been wronged.

    It shows that Hermione is determined to make a difference no matter what she may endure along the way.

    From Redditor u/JonSatire:

    It also does a great job showing that while she believes in helping the elves, she also isn't very good at listening to what they want or respecting their wants/beliefs. She wants to give them the freedom SHE thinks they should have, rather than what would be best for the house elves.

    A lot of people forget or overlook Hermione's flaws, and arrogance is top among them.

    From Redditor u/whogivesashirtdotca:

    Despite her having all of about two lines in any of the books, Charity Burbage's death bothered me most. She taught the wizard kids about Muggles, and was essentially lynched - tortured and murdered - for it.

    To add insult to injury, she was "disappeared" - no body left behind and nobody knew what happened to her.

    From Redditor u/Quidditchgirl06:

    Cho Chang was annoying and treated Harry (and other people) horribly. Her behavior before and during their date on Valentine’s Day was embarrassing at best. I don’t like how she supported her friend even after she blabbed to Umbridge.

    In my opinion, Cho showed a complete lack of respect for others and a clear misunderstanding of how dangerous the situation was.

    When Hermione tries to explain Cho’s emotional turmoil, it only makes the situation worse for me. Cho was clearly unstable following Cedric’s death and needed more help. She shouldn’t have expected so much from Harry, and clearly [it] was not going to be a good relationship for him.
