“Promptly Potter” Episode 185: “Peter Pettigrew Is a Rat in More Ways than One”
– In Chapter 23 of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Harry, Ron, and Hermione are captured and taken to Malfoy Manor. Death Eaters torture them for information while they are there. Using his shard of the two-way mirror, Harry sends a plea for help. Dobby arrives and successfully liberates the trio but at the cost of his own life.

– This episode is hosted by Princess Jhode Datu.
