So in class the other day we were learning about the sleeping habits of newborn babies when one of the guys says “I would nickname my baby Gotham, so in the middle of the night when the baby cries my partner can whisper “Gotham needs you” and I would feel excellent about having to get out of bed”.
That’s actually not a spoiler!
The title The Gathering Storm, is a double reference. First, to Winston Churchill’s book of the same name about the beginnings of World War II (as we all know, the First Wizarding War was heavily influenced by WWII). It’s also a reference to Hagrid’s line in Order of the Phoenix, "It’s changing out there. Just like last time. There’s a storm coming, Harry. And we all best be ready when she does."
