Chamber of Secrets

  • Film two starts out with Harry eagerly anticipating a new year at Hogwarts. That is until this guy shows up:

Dobby the House Elf - Somewhere on the annoying creature scale between Jar-Jar and the Ewoks.

  •  Dobby warns Harry not to go to Hogwarts this year. He then begins to raise magical mischief to try and get him expelled:
  • Harry makes it to Diagon Alley to buy school supplies where he bumps into Draco’s father:

Lucius Malfoy

  • Lucius bumps into Ron’s sister and secretly slips something into her Cauldron:

SPOILER ALERT: It won't be long until Harry is slipping things into her cauldron too!

  •  Harry and Ron make it to Kings Cross where they are unable to get through the barrier at Platform 9 3/4:
  • Not wanting to be late, they decide to steal Ron’s dad’s flying car and fly it to Hogwarts:

Because apparently Grand Theft Auto is a lesser crime in the Wizarding World than tardiness.

  • The car runs out of gas on the final approach, and they crash into:

The Whomping Willow

  • Classes get off to a rocky start as they meet their new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher:

Vain, Insufferable Braggart Gilderoy Lockhart

  • Then things go from bad to worse when Harry starts hearing voices which lead him to:

Caretaker Filch's cat petrified.

Filch finds Harry on the scene of the crime - and a message scrawled in blood.

  • At the students first lesson on Dueling, Harry squares off with:
  • They both fight dirty and Draco conjures up:

Harry speaks to the snake, freaking everyone out

  • Instantly, rumours circulate that Harry is the Legendary Heir of Slytherin, returning to Hogwarts to purge the school. Harry seems to be at the scene of each victim:

Nearly Headless Nick petrified

  • Thinking she knows what’s going on, my future wife rushes to the library, but is later found:

Hermione is found petrified, holding a mirror.

  • Harry stumbles upon a discarded diary in the bathroom which he begins to write in. The diary writes back:

Tom Marvolo Riddle's Diary

  • Harry meets the ghost of the diary’s owner:

Past Hogwarts Head Boy, Tom Riddle

  • Tom shows him that the Chamber was opened before, and Hagrid was expelled for the crime:

Hagrid, as a student, kept a monster hidden in the basement

  • Harry and Ron rush to ask Hagrid about it, but find him being arrested:

Hagrid, being hauled away, tells Harry to "Follow the Spiders"

  • Ron and Harry enter the Forbidden Fortress where they encounter a giant spider:
  • Aragog, the spider, tells Harry and Ron that he was not the monster in the Chamber. The monster, he says, is something that spiders fear above all else.
  • Then he tries to eat them.
  • I hate spiders.
  • They return to the school to find a final message:

Ginny Weasley has been taken into the Chamber

  • Under pressure from the Governors (and Lucius Malfoy), Dumbledore is removed as headmaster and the school closed. The job of finding Ginny is left to Gilderoy Lockhart, who has bragged all along that he knows where the Chamber lies:
  • Harry and Ron figure out that the monster is a basilisk, a mythical serpent that kills anyone who looks directly into it. With help from a note left by Hermione, they also realize how the monster has been getting around the school:

The Basilisk has been using the school's pipes - the entrance to the Chamber is in the bathroom

  • They rush off to give this information to Lockhart only to find him packing up to run away:

Exposed as a fraud, Harry and Ron force Lockhart to stay to help them.

  • It’s revealed that Lockhart never really did any of the heroic things he brags about. He took credit for other wizards deeds and erased their memories. Once inside the Chamber, he tries to erase Harry and Ron’s memories, but the spell backfires:
  • Harry continues on into the main chamber where he finds Ginny’s body:
  • And is surprised to see a living, breathing:

Tom Riddle, the ghost from the diary in human form

  • Who reveals himself to be the young soul of Lord Voldemort, trapped in a Diary:

Tom Marvolo Riddle is an anagram for "I Am Lord Voldemort"

  • Riddle calls upon the Basilisk to appear:
  • Harry is near defeat until he sees:

Fawkes - Dumbledore's Phoenix pecks out the Basilisks Eyes and leaves the Sorting Hat at Harry's feet.

  • Harry pulls out of the sorting hat the Sword of Godric Gryffindor, which he uses to:

Harry stabs the basilisk through the head

  •  But it’s all too late – Harry is dying of basilisk venom, and Tom Riddle is getting stronger. Then, Harry gets the idea to:

Harry goes postal on the diary with the tooth from the basilisk.

  • Riddle is destroyed, but Harry is still left dying. Until….:

Deus Ex Machina - Phoenix Tears Cure EVERYTHING!

  • Fawkes then flies everyone out of the Chamber where Harry meets:

Dumbledore Explains it All!

  • Dumbledore, who tells Harry that only a true and worthy Gryffindor could have pulled the sword out of the hat. Then he awards Gryffindor a billion points and everyone celebrates!

The End!
