So, we all can guess that J.K. Rowling really meant to write a different ending to her wizarding epic, but the evil editors changed it at the last minute. What was the original planned ending? I’m sure we can figure it out.
J. K. Rowling’s ending:
What she really meant to include after that:
*But something made him turn back again to look at the Hogwarts Express steaming out of the station. A tall, black-haired, handsome girl was staring at him, leaning out of one of the windows of the last coach, twirling a long, white wand in her hands. She seemed to be nineteen years old - surely too old for Hogwarts? And was it the sun reflecting off the scarlet paint what gave her eyes that red glow?
Harry had to close his eyes as a sudden searing pain on his forehead made him wince, and when he opened them the girl had disappeared. Had he imagined her? Ginny and Ron, laughing together, did not notice, but Hermione’s anxious voice broke through his daze.
“Are you all right Harry?” she said, peering into his face. “For a moment there I thought…”
“I’m fine”, said Harry, taking one last look backwards, but Ron slapped him on the shoulder and challenged him to a car race back to the Ministry, and his unease was pushed to the back of his mind.*
