Great Scott! Fire up your Delorean, hop in that TARDIS, or find a hot tub, because we are about to take a very linear path back to…just a few hours ago, apparently.  This week, we uncover Hermione’s Secret (and no, it’s not an elaborate fantasy involving Dean Thomas, a Quick Quotes Quill, and the Forbidden Forest), …
