In which Harry awakens in hospital, desperately tries to tell Black's side of the story but is not believed until Dumbledore arrives, who tells Hermione to use her Time-Turner (which she had been using to increase the amount of classes she could attend) to go back and change events to save Buckbeak and Black.

Timelines/Calendar:

The entire action of this chapter takes place later on the same evening as that of the previous chapter. The document condemning Buckbeak gives the date, although not the day of the week, while PA16 gave the day of the week. Unfortunately, the day of the week given in that chapter (Thursday) and the date given in this chapter don't tally for the year 1994.
