It all ends here.
Here's the first one-sheet for the closing chapter of the wizarding boy-wonder's saga. When we last left Harry and company, they were on the search for the horcruxes: a series of nondescript items that each contain part of Voldemort's soul.
What we've learned is that Harry can't kill Voldemort with magic and vice versa, since a part of each is in the other. Or something like that. Anyway, what I don't understand is what makes Harry so special. I realize that he withstood a direct hit from the noseless one back when he was an infant, but what is unclear is why he remains such a thorn in the side of evil. From what we've seen, Voldemort is having no trouble wrecking havoc on the mystical and boring regular world; one would think that he would be smart enough to simply stab the bespectacled one in the heart, or shoot him with a non-magical gun. Problem solved, bad guys win.
