Chapter 5-11 The Sorting Hat's New Song

  • Everybody goes to the castle and gathers in Great Hall. They see a new teacher at the staff table. Harry recognizes her as Umbridge, who works for Fudge, from his trial.
  • The Sorting Ceremony starts and the Sorting Hat sings his song, different from other years, calling for unity amongst the Houses and warning them. Nearly Headless Nick says the hat had given warnings before.
  • Professor McGonagall goes over the names, from Euan Abercrombie who goes into Gryffindor to Rose Zeller, who goes into Hufflepuff.
  • After dinner Dumbledore announces that Umbridge will be the new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher. Umbridge then addresses the students. Most students find it dull, but Hermione, afterwards, explains the Ministry is interfering at Hogwarts.
  • Harry goes alone to Gryffindor Tower. He doesn't know the password, but Neville arrives and gives the Fat Lady the password "Mimbulus mimbletonia"
  • Harry and Neville go up to the dormitory. Dean Thomas and Seamus Finnigan are already there. Seamus, who is putting his poster of the Kenmare Kestrels Quidditch team straight, tells Harry his mother didn't want him to return to Hogwarts because of Harry and Dumbledore. She believes the stories in the Daily Prophet. They get into an argument.
  • Neville says his grandmother always knew Voldemort would be back and that if Dumbledore says so, it's true.
