In Chamber of Secrets, we meet Moaning Myrtle. Over fifty years ago, she was bullied by Olive Hornby and fled into an other girl’s bathroom. There, she was attacked by a creature as well. This was the basilisk, released by Tom Riddle, the young Voldemort.
Although the troll did not kill Hermione, the similarities between the scenes are fascinating. Hermione and Myrtle have more in common than we – and they – previously thought!
