In which Harry learns that Dumbledore has returned, races off to his
office, and with him watches Slughorn's memory, where Riddle learns
what Horcruxes are and contemplates making more than one. Dumbledore
explains his suspicions that Riddle made six, including the
now-destroyed ring and diary, the locket, the cup, and Nagini.
Dumbledore promises Harry can join him in destroying the next one, and
explains to Harry what love - and the prophecy - really mean.

It was, he thought, the difference between being dragged into the arena to
face a battle to the death and walking into the arena with your head held
high. Some people, perhaps, would say that there was little to choose between
the two ways, but Dumbledore knew - and so do I, thought Harry,
with a rush of fierce pride, and so did my parents - that there was
all the difference in the world.
