I still think that Snape must be working for himself.
He seems to flit between sides to keep his neck clear and he gets the best of both worlds.
So he's good when he wants to be and evil when he wants to be. But the again, he's evil when he needs to be and good also when he needs to be. Now that definitely didn't make sense!

Phew, so I'm not the only one!
I kinda got the feeling from late in Book 4 to somewhere in Book 5 that Snape's character was just starting to develop. I'd really like to see how she winds it up. Something spectacular for the half blood prince I hope!

He's good...Dumbledore said in book 1 that the truth was dangerous, and must be handled with care, and that some questions could not be given adequate answers. I think his reasons for trusting Snape fall into this category. It is easy to see why he had to make sure only he and snape knew, because Voldemort could track Snape to the Order through Leglimency if he were to capture any of them. Therefore the fewer people that knew, the smaller the chance of Snape's double bluff being discovered.
Also, Snape shepherded all the Death Eaters off the tower very quickly after noticing the two brooms...he could have taken Harry there very easily, if I remember correctly he was unarmed, and he was definitely alone. So his letting him escape then makes no sense if he was evil...
But I guess we just have to wait till friday night/saturday!!!

it better be good (and it probably will be) i think when it was said how good Snape was at Occlumency i began to suspect he wasnt good or evil. Oh, and all the hints throughout the books as well as to Snape's loyalty not being clearly set

Hahah, if only! Can you imagine Snape being a softie? Now that would be one disappointing ending!

If your parents were murdered by the most evil person of all time and you found out that the reason they were murdered was because of a teacher of yours, what would you do?

Snape is evil. Murder is the most evil of acts, so evil it tears the soul apart and there is no way JK will be able to talk it round to him being good now.

Agreed, I don't buy the whole "Dumbledore told him to kill him so it will make it look like he is on their side"

I think it would be a good twist though is he was bad because everyone is saying that he's a goody because Dumbledore trusted him. But think what you would be like if you read:

"Snape raised his wand, Harry trembling with fear. Snape takes a gentle, shuddering breath and yells "AVADA KEDAVRA!"

Lol, I was never good at creative wirting :p:

Maybe the way he promised Malfoys mum he promised Dumbledore something- i reiterate my stance which is that Dumby can never be wrong!

I think he may kill Voldermort in the end- possibly and save Harry! looool

What will happen to poor old Malfoy? :p:

I wonder if Hogwarts will re-open and will Harry go back?

yeah i know its the wrong thread but i cannot wait!

I reckon he really really really wants to be bad... but fundamentally, he's good. And I think he hates it because he views being bad as being strong; he wants to be evil. But try as he might, I don't think he's evil inside.. he's trying so hard to be, but he's not.

I just want to believe the best in him :p:

Alan Rickman doesnt come across as evil in the film tho (Umbridge does tho), just a bit of a bitter weirdo lol so if he does turn out to be hardcore evil i just won't be able to believe it in the film or in the book.

He will be the hero of the series. trust me

The thing is, it's just a huge disappointment if Snape turns out to be evil. It oversimplifies the entire book. Most of the main characters can be divided into "good" and "bad". Yes, they all have their minor flaws but in general, they're either light or dark. Snape was the ONE character who was a little different. He wasn't a nice or a kind person, but he was still on the side of the light. And I thought that was important because there are people like that in the world. Just because not everyone would lay down their lives for their friends like Harry does, or aren't really intelligent like Hermione, or trusting like Dumbledore, doesn't mean they're not generally moral people, who will do the right thing when push comes to shove. JKR making Snape evil changes it into - basically, Gryffindors are good, Slytherins are bad and once you've done something wrong there's no chance of redemption. If someone looks nasty they probably condone mass murder.

So that's why I think it's important that Snape's good.

Also, theres no mention of the teachers being in love - they can't have families so its just a bit weird? Maybe Snape has the hots for prof mcgonagol for instance. now that would be scary.
