Memory charms

Jacob explains that the spell only erased the bad memories – and that he had mostly good ones, so he remembered all of those.

This does not seem to be how the Obliviate charm works in the Harry Potter books. For example, Hermione modified her parents' memories so that they could not recall that Hermione had ever been born in order to protect them from the death eaters. In doing so, she erased good memories, though she was able to restore them later. Similarly, when Gilderoy Lockhart Obliviates his victims, he erases all their memories – positive and negative.

Likely, the American wizards used a specific variation of the memory charm that only erases bad memories, though the movie never explains why.

Dumbledore's obsession with Obscurials

Dumbledore seems to have a more comprehensive knowledge of obscurials than most wizards. A quick recap for those who have forgotten: Dumbledore's sister Ariana was abused by some local muggle boys who saw her casting magic when she was young. Ariana became sick afterward, suppressing her magic only to let it out in dangerous bursts.

Ariana and his brother Aberforth to Ariana and Dumbledore became the guardian of Dumbledore's mother after the accident. It was during that time stuck at home that Dumbledore met Grindelwald. The two exchanged ideas and plotted a new world order in which wizards ruled Muggles "for the greater good."

The two planned to search for the Deathly Hallows together in order to achieve this goal, but when Aberforth confronted them, the three dueled, accidentally killing Ariana. Grindelwald fled, Dumbledore – overcome by guilt – realized the error in his thinking about the rest of his life trying to defend innocents against dark magic.

Instead of making an unbreakable vow, the two made a bloody oath-a new concept for Harry Potter fans. Considering that Dumbledore and Grindelwald do eventually fight, a Blood Oath is presumably breakable, unlike an Unbreakable Vow.

Who is Aurelius Dumbledore?

In the last minutes of the movie, Grindelwald's followers decamp to Nurmengard, the prison that Grindelwald builds for dissenters – and eventually becomes his own jailhouse. There, Grindelwald reveals that Credence is in fact Aurelius Dumbledore, Albus Dumbledore's brother.

We never know why a secret dumbledore brother never mentioned before in the Harry Potter universe or how the dumbledore baby ended up on the boat to America. Rita Skeeter would be disappointed to learn she had not dug up all the dirt on the dumbledores.

Grindelwald could be lying. But he tells Credence that a phoenix is ​​said to appear to Dumbledores in times of need, and a phoenix does, indeed, appear to Credence. Could this possibly by a young Fawkes?

If Credence is, indeed, a Dumbledore, that means that Albus Dumbledore had two Obscurial siblings. Grindelwald feels that Credence's power – and probably Dumbledore's guilt over Ariana's fate – will be his most powerful weapon against the great wizard.
