Hate Mail for Hermione
Harry refuses to grant the [Slytherins] the knowledge of the trouble caused to Hermione by Rita Skeeter's article, but instead focuses on [Care of Magical Creatures] class, and the lesson on [nifflers]. Hermione returns at the end of class, but as she, Harry, and Ron walk back up to the [castle], she obsesses over her hatred of Rita Skeeter, while Ron bemoans his poverty.
Harry and Krum Encounter Mr. Crouch
On the way back to the castle, [Viktor Krum] pulls Harry aside to ask about his relationship with Hermione. As they walk over by the [Forbidden Forest], though, [Barty Crouch] comes crawling out, seemingly alternating between his normal self and a sort of insanity, asking Harry for help. Harry leaves Krum behind, then, and runs to get help.
Desperately trying to get into [Dumbledore's office] to tell him about [Barty Crouch], Harry is instead sidetracked by Snape, who seems determined to prevent him from getting what he wants. Soon, though, the door slides open and [Dumbledore] appears, letting Harry lead him to Crouch.
Harry and [Dumbledore] run down to the [Forbidden Forest], searching for [Barty Crouch]. Instead, however, they find that [Krum] has been knocked out and Crouch is gone. Hagrid retrives an irate [Karkaroff], Moody runs to find Crouch, and Dumbledore orders Hagrid to take Harry back to [Gryffindor Tower] immediately.
