Did you leave the cinema after seeing Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald bubbling over with zillions of issues with the film to research and debate and vent about?  Yeah, we did, too.  The second film of the five-film franchise raised more questions than it answered, to put it mildly.  The PotterCast cast, Melissa, Jon, and Frankie, spend 90 minutes hashing out the big reveals and the trajectories of the characters yet barely scratch the surface.  They have promised to be back next week with more theories, rants, raves, and insights about the movie.  The takeaway: Trust Jo.  What else can we do at this point?  So much doesn’t fit canon that we have to assume she has a grand plan that will unfold over the next three films.  In the meantime, let the speculation continue.
