The story begins in August ofwhere an absurd tragedy happened inside the house that nobody is able to find out how it happened. When the Riddles' maid goes to work that day, she discovers all three Riddles dead in the drawing room, "still in their dinner things".
The police find no evidence of murder or suicide, claiming to be in perfect health except for the fact that they were dead. They arrest the Riddles' gardener Frank Bryce for questioning, since the door and windows was not forced open or shattered on the night of their murder, and the Riddles' cook testified that he was the only one with a key to the house. Frank, however, said the only person he saw that night was a mysterious dark-haired boyand was released due to lack of evidence, but many still believed he committed the murders.
Half a century later on the night of 16 August, an elderly Frank is still working as the groundskeeper at the Riddle house. He sees a fire flickering in one of the rooms and goes over to investigate, thinking it is a couple boys who regularly disturb him.
Inside, he overhears the same boy he saw on the night of the Riddles' murder, now grown up as Lord Voldemort who, still unknown to him, was Tom Riddle Senior's unwanted sonand his servant Peter Pettigrew planning to capture Harry Potter with the aid of a reliable servant.
Frank is then discovered by Voldemort's snake Naginiwho reports his presence to her master via Parseltongue. When Pettigrew beckons him in as a guest, Frank stands up to Voldemort, who is unhappy that Muggles like the elderly gardener would be spying on him.
Frank doesn't know what a Muggle is, and despite being offended that Voldemort called him one when it is explained that term means he's not a wizardhe is still determined to inform the police about the intruders' plot but becomes horrified upon seeing Voldemort's weak form. Voldemort then casts the Avada Kedavra curseending Frank's life before the book can describe what Voldemort looks like.
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Simultaneously, about miles away in the Surrey County town of Little WhingingHarry wakes up from a nightmare at the Dursleys ' house on Privet Drive.
The Scar "A weird thing happened this morning, though. My scar hurt again. Last time that happened it was because Voldemort was at Hogwarts. Sirius was actually framed for his crimes by Peter Pettigrewbut, as the entire wizarding world except for Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Dumbledore believes him to be guilty, Sirius is in hiding. Harry does not mention the dream, only his scar hurting, and plans to send the letter once Hedwig gets back. I do hope we've put enough stamps on.
Unfortunately, the letter upsets Vernon Dursley because there are so many stamps on the envelope that the postman actually rang the doorbell to laugh about it.
Harry writes back to Ron after a letter from Ron was delivered by Ron's owl Pigwidgeon confirming that they can come pick him up. Back to The Burrow "They'll take the boy and go, there'll be no hanging around. That's if they're coming at all. Probably mistake the day.
I dare say their kind don't set much store by punctuality. The Dursleys are shocked after Mr Weasley destroys half the sitting room. Dudley Dursleyunable to resist due to the diet the family has been following and his fondness for sweets of all sorts, attempts to eat it and experiences the magical effects of a bigger tongue.
Before they have a chance to talk, Mr Weasley arrives back home and angrily explains that Dudley's tongue grew to be four feet long and turned purple before he was allowed to fix it. He points out that this incident could undermine the muggle-wizard relations he has been working so hard to improve even after the twins tell him they did it because Dudley bullies Harry.
Mrs Weasley learns what happened and joins in the scolding of the twins. Mrs Weasley forced them to stop, since she wanted them to have a more reputable career in the Ministry after graduation. After the spat, the Weasleys, Harry, and Hermione enjoy a lovely dinner in the garden. At the table a lot of topics are discussed: Madame Maxime, convinced he is lying, suggests Dumbledore made a mistake with the age line, which McGonagall disputes.
The Third Task - Wikibooks, open books for an open world
Karkaroff appeals to the impartial judges, Crouch and Bagman. Crouch says the rules are specific, anyone whose name comes from the Goblet is magically bound to compete. Karkaroff demands that they resubmit names into the Goblet until each school has two Champions, but Bagman points out that the Goblet is now extinguished, and it will not reignite until the next Tournament. Karkaroff is threatening to withdraw when Professor Moody enters and reminds Karkaroff that the same rules bind the Durmstrang Champion to compete.
He suggests that someone used powerful magic to hoodwink the Goblet into believing Harry was the lone competitor from a fourth school, solely to kill him. Karkaroff accuses Moody of looking for plots where none exist. Dumbledore interrupts the heated debate, saying their path is clear; all four Champions must compete. Madame Maxime protests, but when Dumbledore asks for alternatives, she has none. Looking rather wearied, Mr. Crouch tells the Champions that as the first task will test their daring, they will not be told what it is.
It takes place the 24th of November, they are forbidden to ask for or accept help from their teachers, and can only use their wands. Champions are excused from end-of-year exams, as the Tasks are so difficult. Concerned by Crouch's appearance, Dumbledore invites Mr. Crouch to spend the night at the castle, but he declines. Dumbledore also asks Karkaroff and Madame Maxime, but they are already departing with their respective Champions. Dumbledore suggests Harry and Cedric head to their Houses.
Harry considers Moody's words; someone entered him into the Tournament to kill him. The obvious candidate is Voldemortand Harry remembers from his dream that Voldemort is apparently plotting his death. Harry enters the Common room amid a grand celebration, but his repeated denials that he did not enter the Tournament are ignored.
He quickly retreats to his dormitory where he finds Ron. Ron wonders if he used the Invisibility Cloak to cross the age line, and is affronted that Harry refuses to tell him the "truth.
Analysis[ edit ] Harry is stunned, but also fearful, when his name is mysteriously selected by the Goblet of Fire, and he once again finds himself mired in unwanted attention and activities. The Goblet has determined that Harry must compete in the Tournament, disregarding his wishes and overriding the careful precautions and strict rules implemented by the Ministry of Magicshowing how little control they occasionally have over magical matters. Nearly everyone suspects Harry cheated to enter, although reactions are mixed.
At this chapter's end, it seems Dumbledore is the only Tournament official who outwardly believes that someone other than Harry entered him, though Moody, who suspects there is a dark plot to murder Harry, and probably McGonagall, seem to share his opinion. Karkaroff and Madame Maxime, the foreign outsiders, are certain that Dumbledore and the Ministry rigged the Tournament in Hogwarts' favor, while Mr.
- The Four Champions
Crouch only seems concerned about following the rules. Ludo Bagman apparently views the upheaval as vastly amusing. Harry may have other concerns; although he is a talented young wizard, he is several years younger than the other champions and lacks the experience and advanced training they have. He will have to work hard to master new spells they likely already know.

Meanwhile, Ron, who continues to fawn over Viktor Krum, grows increasingly resentful over Harry's celebrity. Ron, perhaps bothered more by his own perceived inability to stand out in any significant way, is convinced that Harry somehow bypassed the age restriction line and, unconcerned whether or not Harry cheated, instead feels betrayed because he believes Harry never confided in him. Despite Harry's unfaltering friendship and confidence in him, Ron convinces himself that Harry is only concerned with seeking even more fame and attention, further straining their friendship.
Bartemius Crouch's odd behavior should be noted. He appears to be acting woodenly and unable to display even the minimal fluidity that he normally has. Crouch states that if someone's name is ejected from the Goblet, he is required to compete in the Tournament. The rule-book wording almost certainly states that any person entering his name into the Goblet must compete if he is selected. The previous evening, Professor Dumbledore had mentioned to the students that, "The placing of your name in the Goblet constitutes a binding magical contract"; however, Mr.
Crouch neglects to mention this. Crouch avoids firelight, possibly to prevent people from seeing him acting differently than usual, and he says almost nothing; when he does step into the light, he looks old and tired, possibly ill, to the point where Dumbledore is concerned.
The Third Task
Crouch declines a drink, making a thin excuse to leave Hogwarts. Professor Moody appears in the room very quickly, in theory to keep a closer eye on Karkaroff, but quite possibly to keep a better handle on the situation unfolding with Mr. It should also be mentioned that Karkaroff is, at least in Moody's eyes, a suspicious character.
Though Harry has not yet had this confirmed, he is beginning to suspect that Karkaroff was, or still is, a Death Eater. In the previous chapter, Karkaroff was stunned to see Harry at Hogwarts; Moody seems to think that there might be buried hatred, or perhaps not buried so deeply. It may be worth noting that despite his apparent paranoia, Professor Moody is the only person there to suggest any way that the Goblet of Fire could have been made to add a fourth Champion to what is supposed to be a three-way competition.
It may also be of interest that the technique he suggests is also certain to produce a single wizard, Harry, as that champion.
