Gist of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

All of you… welcome to Harry’s glorious fourth year at Hogwarts.

As usual, Harry finds it pretty disgusting to sit along with the Dursley family. So, Mr. Weasley comes around and picks Harry saying that he has got free tickets to the ‘Quidditch World Cup’ a worldwide game of flying wizards.

Harry goes along with Mr. Weasley to the World Cup. The event closes and when everybody start returning to their respective tents, suddenly come the Death Eaters.

After the place gets empty, there is then a mark seen in the sky. It’s that of a skull with a serpent coming out of its mouth.

Then, they go to Hogwarts by the same Hogwarts Express. And later in the Feast that day at night in Hogwarts, all students learn that there would be students from two more institutions coming around for a tournament called the ‘Triwizard Tournament.’

And soon the people from the other institutions arrive. The ‘Goblet of Fire’ is opened up and students in their final years are the only ones who are allowed to participate in the competition.

And soon after that, the Goblet lets out the name of three people. Viktor Krum from Durmstrang, Fleur Delacour from Beauxbatons and Cedric Diggory from Hogwarts. When the headmaster starts explaining, another paper shoots out of the Goblet with the name ‘Harry Potter.’

Harry is then summoned and he is then ridiculed by most of the Hogwarts students save for the Gryffindors. The Triwizard Tournament consists of three difficult tasks which the contestants discover only at the performing time. Mad-Eye Moody saves Harry from peril every time.

Hagrid the giant friend of Harry then shows him that his first task is to fight Dragons and claim the golden egg that the dragons will protect. This Harry takes in and goes tell Cedric Diggory from Hogwarts.

Then, the day of the First Task comes and Harry gets the Hungarian Horntail to deal with. He defeats the Horntail and proceeds to get the Golden Egg.

He then mulls over things for a few months before Cedric gives him a hint. He then goes to the Prefects’ bathroom in the fifth floor and is also aided by Myrtle who helps him solve the clue.

He then proceeds to the second task which is to rescue his beloved friends from the merpeople living in the lake. He is given something called Gillyweed by Dobby the house elf which would help him breathe underwater. He tries to save all of them but ends up with two people to save at the same time. They are his BFF Ron and Fleur’s sister Gabriel. He then comes up to the surface and is then taken care of Madam Pomfrey.

Then comes the third and final task which includes going across a maze and claiming the Triwizard Cup.

Krum and Fleur come out of the maze due to varied reasons leaving only harry and Cedric both from Hogwarts in the maze. Cedric is then attacked by live vines who is then saved by Harry.

After a long decision, both reach the Cup only to find themselves transported to some other place. Harry remembers it from his dream and starts warning. But, too late. Cedric is killed by the Death Curse and Harry witnesses the re-birth of Voldemort from help of his own blood. He is then dragged into duel and Harry’s and Voldemort’s wands connect to reveal the murders committed by The Dark Lord. The Shadows of his dead parents [Harry’s] come out and aid Harry to get out of the place. Harry gets the Cup and Cedric’s body in his hold and returns to the Hogwarts grounds.

Dumbledore then tells Harry to stay who does but, is dragged by Mad-Eye Moody to his office. And finally, Moody comes to kill him only to be abruptly stopped by Dumbledore, Snape and McGonagall breaking in. Dumbledore then requests Snape to use Veritaserum or the truth serum to question the Moody. The Moody suddenly transforms into someone that Harry had known for a while. Barty Crouch Junior. He tells all the truth and then Harry is hospitalized for a few days and Cedric is honored after a few days. Harry receives a prize of 1000 Galleons. He doesn’t want it. So, he gives it to Fred and George Weasly who have been keen on starting a joke shop.

So the year ends…..

Waiting for fifth year? So am I.
