Worst Umbridge Moment
Ugh. Umbridge. I think we can all agree that any moment she appeared on page or film was some variation of a 'worst moment'. She was either building up to doing something vile and heinous, doing something vile and heinous...or, just finishing off from doing something vile and heinous. She spied, manipulated, lied, bullied, abused and tortured her way through Hogwarts and the Ministry for Magic. We all hate her even worst than Voldy himself so many moments come to mind when trying to think of the worst of the worst. The way she lobbied and discriminated against anyone NOT a pure-blood, her role in the Muggle Registration Act (it's implementation AND her role as judge jury and executioner)...Sacking Trelawney is an especially loathsome one as well but I've always hated her the most for:
That moment, in her office with just her and Harry, when she calmly and sweetly explains about her 'special quill' and Harry proceeds to write his first line...and he comes to the full realization of just how sick and twisted she is. That whole scene just weighs on me every time I read it or even just thinking about it now.
I could babble and rage on and on about her but instead I'll just share a link I found that makes a really interesting point as to why we all hate Umbridge even more than Lord Voldemort. Check it out here (if you want) and share your thoughts in the comments below!
Oh and for the record, here's what I think is the best Umbridge moment:
