Gambondore shows up to cockblock Harry.

Warner Bros.

Also to promote his new cologne, Divine Magic: "Sixty per cent of the time, you'll smell like an old wizard all of the time."

“Wands out, Harry.” Lol #finallywatchingHP

"I suggest you go and take Professor Slughorn's Potions class, since he seems integral to the plot this time around."

Warner Bros.

"And tell Weasley to stop whining and find something to do." #BossWitch

Slughorn has brewed two potions; the first, Hermione witchsplains, is a powerful love potion.

Warner Bros.

"It smells different for everyone, depending on what you love. I smell books, mostly."

Gambondore tells Harry that Riddle was especially close to Professor Slughorn, and that he needs Harry to get close to him too.

Remembering that this film has a plot, Harry takes the gang for a Butterbeer to try to get closer to Professor Slughorn.

Warner Bros.

Ron wants to leave, partly because he's not a fan of the trophy stag heads displayed on the mantle.

A drunken Slughorn takes the bait, and comes over to chat with Harry.

Warner Bros.

"I often invite young students to my quarters late at night for supper, which is in no way creepy. Not at all. You should come over."

This is literally the scariest scene in all of the Harry Potter films thus far, and it comes out of nowhere.

Girls have nice skin, and stuff #finallywatchingHP

Slughorn throws a Christmas party, with only select students invited to attend. Neville was not invited, so he's working instead.

“But you can’t break an unbreakable vow.” – Thanks, Ron. #finallywatchingHP

For Christmas, the Death Eaters make the Weasley family a nice fire to keep them warm.
