Harry Potter Sex Scene 2

The Marauders map is ALWAYS watching...

First Newt Scamander, now a hidden sex scene - what other wonders does the Marauder's Map know about that it's not telling us?

You all know how the Marauder's Map works, right? It can detect exactly who is present in the grounds of Hogwarts and can pin point where they are by showing their footprints on a magical piece of parchment. It's how the gang managed to bust Peter Pettigrew's hidden identity and how Harry managed to slide around the castle without getting caught by Snape.

Long story short, the Marauder's map can not only save lives but it can also absolutely ruin them. It will catch you out and bring up the receipts faster than you can say "Expelliarmus"... And it can also expose who's been having secret little rendezvous in the corner outside Potions class.

That's right. The first "sex scene" in Harry Potter has been sleuthed and it's wild. Right at the end of Prisoner of Azkaban in the credits, there's a tiny little easter egg in which two students (or teachers, who am I to judge?) are in seen an "embrace".

If you've never spotted it before, watch the exposé below:

Well, well, well... who could it possibly be?!

Back in 2015, Rus Wetherell, the man responsible for this revelation revealed that it was meant to be a "behind the bike shed" moment. He went onto explain that while the footprints didn't EXPLICITLY reveal a "sex scene", it was definitely meant to be a "sort of little peck on the cheek" embrace. He also revealed that it could have been an prelude to Harry and Cho's eventual smooch in Order of the Phoenix

It ended up staying in the film after the director, Alfonso Cuaron saw it and burst out laughing. “It was just something there that was amusing for the adults in the audience and kids wouldn’t really understand.” 

But hang on a second... what about those footprints walking away from the scene of the crime? Why is no one talking about that!? *sweats*
