This week's topic is:
How Did Quirrell Add to the Overall Storyline?
I saw the first film before I read the books, so all I knew about Quirrell's character was from his scenes in the movie. It didn't occur to me that he was more than what he appeared to be, and I was surprised when he turned out to be the villain and not Snape. For me, Quirrell provided quite the plot twist, and the fact that Voldemort had taken up residence on the back of his head demonstrated that even in his weakened state and without his own body, the Dark Lord was still very, very much a threat.
