Right. Scenario: Snape comes back to talk to Harry. "Hey, how's it
going? Sorry about that tower thing, but I was working for the greater
good and all. You understand, old chap..."
I don't think Harry, or anyone else not in on a pre-known plan, would
respond real well to that. Harry didn't trust Snape before, he
certainly won't trust him now. So, who cound Snape have been working
with DD with on this plan? Would have had to been at least those two
and someone else. Who is high enough in the order to convince Harry?

All we know is that the room was called the "death chamber". I
interpreted it as a relic of ancient wizarding days as a location for
public executions. Just a guess.

Well, he came from the world of the living, so the other side should be
the world of the dead. Whatever that means in the Potterverse.

Yeah, I think Sirius is going to stay dead. I'm not convinced DD is,
though; why is his picture not animated in the usual dead-headmaster
