THIS IS ACTUALLY THE MOMENT WE’VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR. This episode covers the action packed chapters 16, 17 and 18 Professor Trelawney’s Prediction, Cat, Rat and Dog, and Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs. Basically:
The text version for the fans:
1) Hermione has exams but she's not able to concentrate because Buckbeak's appeal is on their last day of exams and she has multiple exams scheduled for the same time slot. Why can’t a body just write an exam in peace?!
2) They find out that Buckbeak lost the appeal - when they visit Hagrid to offer their condolences, they find Scabbers in the hut! Sneaking back to the castle becomes a chore because Ron's rat is determined to make a run for it - a task that becomes even more strenuous when Crookshanks and a great big, jet black dog becomes involved. The much foreshadowed dog kidnaps Ron and lets his leg break in the process.
3) When Hermione and Harry follow, they find out that the dog is actually Sirius Black and he “wants to finish the job". A scuffle later, the trio come out on top but they're interrupted by Lupin who turns out to be on Black's side?! And is a werewolf?! And Scabbers is actually a man called Peter Pettigrew?! They were all best friends in school?! Except for Snape who sincerely loathes them and makes the best entrance of all time, at the end of Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs.
