The Golden Time-Turner is used to travel back in time to Godric’s Hollow

"….we need somewhere that gives us good views of the town…. and that will, most importantly, keep us hidden because we cannot risk being seen."
-- Hermione Granger (CC4.8)

31 October 2020

Harry Potter, Ginny Weasley, Draco Malfoy, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley arrive in Godric’s Hollow and are surprised at the changes. Putting aside their differences, they use the Golden Time-Turner to go back in Time (CC4.7).

31 October 1981

Arriving in Godric’s Hollow 1981, thirty-nine years earlier, they are reunited with Albus and Scorpius. They choose St Jerome’s Church as their operations base from which to fight Delphi (CC4.8).

Timeline Notes

All Hallows Eve - initially, 31st October 2020 and then 31st October 1981



These events take place during the Voldemort Final timeline, as described in the essay "Albus Potter and the lesson in Quantum Mechanics" by Nick Moline.

The modern village of Godric's Hollow is a shock to them after having not been for a visit recently:

"Godric's Hollow. It must be twenty years…"
"Is it just me or are there more Muggles about?"
"It’s become quite popular as a weekend break."
"I can see why - look at the thatched roofs. And is that a farmers' market? (CC4.7)

Ron is still very suspicious of Draco and threatens him, but Hermione insists what Ron's reaction will be is to hug Draco "Because we’re all on the same team, aren’t we Ron?" (CC4.7).

Draco is grateful that Harry doesn't tell Scorpius that the Golden Time-Turner came from his family. He and Scorpius have an uneasy hug. This feels like the start of a better relationship between father and son (CC4.8).
