I thought that Snape was horrrified when he questions Dumbledore about the message he has to pass on to Harry and send him to his death. He could have told Snape that Harry may live after that, but he chooses not to.

I feel that Snape showed more integrity in this relationship than Dumbledore did. But it would have been difficult for Dumbledore to do anything differently if he wanted to defeat Voldemort. He needed to keep secrets and he needed to use people. It is unfortunate and I wish it could have been different. It isn't the way I hoped it would be, either.

The man who, in my opinion, won the war against Voldemort for Harry Potter and the Light! Severus Snape!
