If Dumbledore was evil he has had Harry alone with harry having no defence many times and Dumdledore keeps saving Harry and telling him Voldermorts weaknesses. Also in book 5 don't you think when Dumbledore, Voldermort and Harry were all alone you'd think if Prof. Dum. was evil he would have helped Voldermort kill Harry and say He tried but failed. 1 final point the only 2 keeping Voldermort from returning to full power is Dumbledore and Harry if the two teamed up (Vold. and Dum.) to kill harry no one could stop the 2
yes I remember that part specifically in the book and I myself considered maybe he was evil....
But I thought maybe he's triumphant because he's glad Harry has the test Dumbledore's been waiting for---maybe dumbledore thinks harry's destiny is to defeat Voldemort man-to-man, and this is the oppurtunity for him.
I just read that part where he has the look of trumph and it is when harry says that voldemort took some of his blood because it has the pertection from his mother in it. So one this that it might be is that it will be voldemorts down fall because it was that love that defeated him before but I am not going to cross off the thought that dumbledore might be evil because she always makes that bad guy someone who you trust completely. and having dumbledore being the bad guy could be the last of the mystery, maybe dumbledore is evil and is waiting for voldemort to be destroyed for good and then he will take over.
Somehow I doubt this will happen but having moody being the bad guy (even if it wasn't him) but you so completely trusted him(well at least I did). and it turned out that the person i loved and trusted was the bad guy pretending to be someone else.
I still haven't read the 5th book yet(have to wait till I can get it!)
dumbledoor being evil had crossed my mind from time to time, but i really hope not. what a major disapointment for poor harry if it were true.
its so hard to pick a secret in this book though, because in the world of potter, anything could be true.....dumbledoor could have harrys father piggybacking his brain, while his mother was sent to the assylum disguised as longbottoms mother, who were swapped at birth and.........well, i could rant forever!!!! hehehehe
i just hope sirius comes back.
yeah i just think dumbledore has had so many opportunities to get rid of harry....i'm sure he would have taken one already. probably something with the prophesy or...*shrug* but i don't think he's evil.
and yeah...sirius coming back would be nice
I can't really imagine Dumbledore being evil. As many of you said before, if Dumbledore was evil, Harry wouldn't be alive anymore, I think. Anyway, I personally just don't want to think about an "evil Dumbledore" because that would be another hard strike to Harry. I mean, he had already lost his parents and his godfather Sirius who played actually more and more the role of Harry's father and therefore I reckon he couldn't cope with a Dumbledore turning against him.
The look of triumph is because he now has proof that Voldermort is back and people have to believe him.
well ok i think that harry was wrong to trust him soo much cause you should never do that but i do not think that he is evil he just is not all knowing..
Dumbledore is not evil. If you take everything that is commonly defined as 'good', squeezed it all together, and gave it a beard, you'd have Dumbledore.
Well put . I agree, despite the 'glint in his eye' and anything else I've heard people suggest, I've never found a convincing enough argument to suggest to me that Dumbledore is anything but good.
this is the most stupidest theory ive heard so far....
there is no way dumbeldore is evil....
i mean wake up, shed need about 30 sequels to the book to explain that....
