8His Grudge Against Harry
His grudge against Harry became clear when the books came to an end. He was in love with Harry’s mother, who went on to marry James Potter and ultimately reject Severus Snape for good. Harry was their son and therefore, a manifestation of this rejection.
Is it understandable that Snape
felt bitter when he looked at Harry? Sure, anyone would. But Snape loathed an innocent boy and actively went out of his way to make his life miserable even though he was trying to keep him alive. Considering Harry was eleven when they met, and definitely innocent of any wrongdoing, this was pretty gross.
