God in the Machine

Literally "God in the machine", Deus Ex Machina originally referred to Greek plays, where the "gods" would be lowered onto the stage with ropes in order to provide a quick resolution to the story. Today, Deus Ex Machina refers to any improbably and/or overly convenient character or mechanism that comes out of nowhere and saves the character(s).

Please, God, let this be wrong.

The actor who plays Harry Potter predicts Harry will die.

My wife's theory is that since Voldemort is a part of Harry, and Harry is a part of Voldemort, Harry has to die for Voldemort to truly die. It makes sense to me, but I coose not to hold my breath one way or the other.

Yeah. That same theory is the one the kid who plays Harry had too.

In my theory, everyone is happy, and Harry marries Ginny and they all live happily ever after.
