Who Dies In ‘Harry Potter And The Cursed Child’? The Secret Is Out

Those who saw “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” before it was published were asked to “keep the secrets.” However, the script was finally released Sunday, so spoilers are officially out there. If you just can’t wait to read the book, you can look below to find out who dies in the play.

“Cursed Child” actually has a very low body count. Unlike “Deathly Hallows,” there is no war, so that makes sense. Only one person dies: Craig Bowker Jr.

If you’re wondering who that is, it’s a new character introduced in the play. He is in Albus Severus Potter’s year at Hogwarts, and it’s pretty easy to compare him to Cedric Diggory. Really, he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time, and a Potter feels responsible for his death.

Craig finds Albus and Scorpius Malfoy on the Quidditch pitch after the whole school is sent to look for the missing boys. However, they’re all in danger. Albus and Scorpius are with the evil Delphi, a witch trying to bring back Lord Voldemort. When Craig appears and says all of Hogwarts is looking for the boys, Delphi says, “Avada Kedavra,” and kills him.

The death is quick, but it’s going to leave an impact on Albus. He feels partially responsible and wants to avenge his friend’s murder. Unfortunately, since he has hardly any time on the page, Craig’s death isn’t quite as impactful for the audience.

However, it helps Albus relate to his father. Harry talks about Cedric’s death, which happened in “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire,” and reveals that he often visits Cedric’s grave just to apologize.

Those worried about the fates of their favorite characters from the first seven novels can rest easy knowing that J.K. Rowling left them alive and well. In fact, even some dead witches and wizards make an appearance in “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.” Severus Snape, Cedric Diggory, James and Lily Potter are all in the play.

“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” is the eighth “Potter” story, told through a two-part play. The script is available at book retailers now, and the show is being performed at the Palace Theatre in London.
