- Jo has said she doesn't intend to introduce anymore new characters, so we know the new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher will be someone we know already, will it finally be somebody competent? McG obviously knows how bad things are getting, I can only assume she'll want to hire an Order member, Maybe even Remus again, also what's the chance of Bill Weasley taking up the post? they're gonna want to monitor his werewolfish-ness and now that he'll be married he may want to be close to home, Maybe even Moody, he agreed to the post once I assume he would agree again ... Or will we get another incompetent teacher? or worse another Death Eater. Jo has mentioned that we will be seeing Umbridge again, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it's not as a professor again. And last but not least Viktor Krum, we've also been told we'll see him again, He's graduated Durmstrang already and is approximately the same age Severus was when he began teaching so it's not an impossible theory, and if it is Krum, is he good or bad? If Slughorn does go back into retirement maybe we'll even see two of these people take teaching positions.
Defence Against the Dark Arts Professor Year 7, what do you think?

Someone Else (specify in comments)
-Pettigrew's life debt. I'm pretty sure I've got that one all figured out (as I'm sure many of you do also)Jo has told us when a secret keeper dies, their secret dies with them, as Peter Pettigrew was the Potter's secret keeper I can only assume that his life-debt will be to let Harry know where Godric's Hollow is. Technically he is the only one who can do it as long as the fidelius is still in place.
- R.A.B. is Regulus... Yes I know almost everyone already thinks this... but I've been pondering over it since book 6, who was in the boat with him? and yesterday it just popped into my head, Kreacher. duh. I've got to be the absolute slowest person on the planet sometimes. But it all makes sense now really who else could have went with him? Not a DE as they would have told Voldie, Not an Order Member as they would have told Dumbledore, but Kreacher could have been ordered to not tell anyone.
-Another thing I wondered about, The potion the locket was submerged in, does it replenish itself or did R.A.B. refill it after replacing the locket with a fake? If He did replace it who's to say he didn't switch it with another potion in an attempt to kill the person that came to retrieve the locket?
And I leave you with some crappy icons that I threw together in a mater of minutes because I was about to die of boredom.
