Trivia -
Winner of our trivia question from last week is Amy (knitnmom on Ravelry). Congrats Amy! The question was: In Once Upon a Time, there is a clue that changes weekly that is hidden somewhere in the episode. It gives a nod to the theme of the current episode. What is it and where is it located? The correct answer was: The scene behind the opening title in the credits changes. For example, in The Crocodile, it was Captain Hook's ship and in Broken, it was the wraith drifting through the forest.
This week's question: In the Harry Potter movies, Richard Harris originally did not intend to take the role of Dumbledore. Why and what changed his mind? ****Post your answer to this week's trivia question from the vidcast in the episode 10 thread in our Ravelry group.****
