Thanks Matt and Jaye. The whole transfer of Voldemorts power to Harry when he killed his parents could make sense. Perhaps we don't know the whole story... that V was weakened after his killing Lily, that Harry was the only thing for V to make a Horcrux. No one would think it, right?
And Lady Jaye, you mentioned that Harry might die because he is the final Horcrux could be right on. JK Rowling said that she wanted to make it so that no further books could be written about Harry once she is dead... kind of like how some modern-day authors carry on making sequels of novels from long-dead authors. I know it isn't really the ending I'd like to see because Harry is finally finding a family and love of his own in the Weaselys and Ginny, especially after the life he had lived. Besides, once Voldemort is gone, there could be other dark wizards in the future and Harry could teach others to be Aurors, kind of like the DA.
I also think that we don't know everything about Snape either. Rowling has always made Harry so sure Snape was bad, and Dumbledore sure in his innocence. In fact, Harry is usually so adamant that his direction is right that in the end he is far from the truth. Sure, we are made to think that Snape murdered Albus. Snape had to play the part of double agent, he had to make the promise to help Draco to his mother otherwise it would seem odd he wouldn't help Voldemort's cause. He probably told Dumbledore about this and Dumbledore told him if the time came Snape should carry out his part and kill him to maintain his part as a spy for the Order.
Anyway, I can't wait to see how it all plays out in the end. Supposedly, a lot of people die. I wonder who.
