Okay okay okay… I know I hinted yesterday that we would be premiering an exclusive clip from “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.” I wasn’t lying at the time either. I genuinely believed that the clip was coming. Unfortunately, the owl bearing the tape was lost in flight and the clip along with it. That’s what we Muggles get for putting our faith in the power of magic. Thank goodness for FedEx!
I’m pleased to report that the clip has now arrived and it is here for your viewing pleasure just below this Block ’O Text. You’ve got Harry, Ron and Hermione hanging in a bar — apparently wizards enjoy a lower drinking age than we do — and chatting with their new Potions professor, Horace Slughorn. Watch and enjoy.
