JK Rowling is the queen of intricate plot details and often surprises us with her smashing foreshadowing but did she hide a major twist right in the middle of a key Chamber of Secrets scene?

Chamber of Secrets question from harrypotter
So basically, the basilisk wasn’t evil – it was just blindly following orders (especially after Fawkes finished off its eyes) and would actually help someone out if they needed assistance?

Justice for the Chamber of Secrets 1!
