Actually, the part of the 2nd task that I liked was the modification. When assaulted by Grindylows, Harry flings Ron and Gabrielle to safety and allows himself to be overwhelmed. This touched upon the theme of good people being willing to sacrifice themselves to save others, which is present throughout the series. It got some emphasis in both PSS and PoA, and it is possible that people will start to notice that.

At the end, we might very well view that and Lupin's lines to Harry in PoA as foreshadowing for the final resolution.

(It doubles for The Hobbit, too!)
If in the first act you have hung a pistol on the wall, then in the following one it should be fired. Otherwise don't put it there. - A. P. Chekhov, Gurlyand's Reminiscences, and who knew why the Dog was long before the Shack!
