If there’s one thing the “Fantastic Beasts” series doesn’t need, it’s romanticizing Severus Snape’s incel behavior towards Lily Potter. But like its predecessor, the franchise couldn’t help itself. In “The Deathly Hallows”, fans learn about Snape’s obsessive “love” for Lily through Snape’s memories. Of course Snape turned his back on Voldemort, but only after the dictator killed Lily – Snape was fine with her family being killed, as long as they survived.

Snape’s yearning for the woman who rejected him decades ago is endless and ridiculous, to the point where he bullies her child (only because Harry looks like James), and Snape’s Patronus is still a deer that matches Lily’s. When Dumbledore asks if he loves Lily after all this time, the potion master says, “Always.” In reality, the quote symbolizes Snape’s unwavering stalker behavior, but even Harry romanticizes Snape’s actions when he names his second son Albus Severus.

Meanwhile, in “The Secrets of Dumbledore”, after the revelation that Credence is the son of Desiderius, it’s unclear why Desiderius never bothered to look for him. It is quite negligent on the part of Aberforth as it seems that he suspected or completely knew the existence of his child. When Credence finally meets Desiderius, he asks, “Have you ever thought of me?” In tribute to Snape, Aberforth says, “Always.” Aberforth tells Credence to come home and take on the responsibility of being a father only when his son is dying – and there’s nothing that can save him. In some ways Snape and Aberforth are similar. So while the tribute is pretty annoying if you’re holding Snape accountable for his actions, it’s not entirely inappropriate.
