Hermione’s Greatest Fear

Commentary

Hermione regrets that she is not given a chance to "tackle" the boggart in their first Defense Against the Dark Arts class with Professor Lupin.  Ron teases her with his remark, but his comment likely hits a little too close to home, as when Hermione faces the boggart during her end-of-term exam, it takes the form of Professor McGonagall, who informs her that she has failed everything.

For additional thoughts about Hermione's boggart and fear in general, read Fears and Naïveté.
