Harry Potter has a nightmare and hears the voice of Voldemort for the first time in 22 years

Harry Potter has a nightmare after his argument with son Albus. While it starts with the night at the Hut-on-the-Rock (PS4), the voice of Lord Voldemort interrupts Hagrid telling Harry that he was a famous wizard (CC1.8).

Harry and Ginny then discuss the dream and the argument with Albus, and how hard he finds it to talk to his son. He also realises that it is the first time his scar has hurt since Voldemort’s defeat (CC1.9).
