I cannot seem to look past Dumbledore's treatment of Snape with respect to the Elder wand. That as I posted in the Dumbledore thread makes me think that even if Dumbledore respected Snape or perhaps even liked him, he was still sending him to death without Snape's knowledge. I feel Snape should have known and it was Dumbledore's duty to tell him, about the wand. While Snape may have felt affection for Dumbledore ( I am still in doubt on that) I think, had he not been desperately saving his life until he could give Harry his memories, he would have felt betrayed by Dumbledore's actions as well.
