Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - WikipediaSo, there are two endings to this book — the close of the Harry-Voldemort plot arc, and then the epilogue, which takes place nineteen years later. First of all, everything we've been wondering about over the course of the last seven books comes to a head in the final confrontation s between Harry and Voldemort. The beginning of the end comes when Harry realizes through Snape's memories that his destiny is to die well, shoot. This seems to answer the question everyone's been asking, especially since Book 5, The Order of the Phoenix , when it was revealed that either Voldemort or Harry will survive: will Harry die? Seemingly, yes. However, things aren't always as they seem. Harry struggles with getting ready to die, and becomes firm in his resolve to sacrifice himself for the good of the whole world — and that's the important thing, apparently.
