“If it kills by looking people in the eye, why is it no one’s dead?
Harry: Because no one did look it in the eye. Not directly, at least. Colin saw it through his camera. Justin… Justin must’ve seen the basilisk through Nearly Headless Nick. Nick got the full blast of it, but he’s a ghost; he couldn’t die again. And Hermione… had the mirror! I bet you anything she was using it to look around corners in case it came along.
And Mrs. Norris? I’m pretty sure she didn’t have a camera or a mirror, Harry.
Harry: The water. There was water on the floor that night. She only saw the basilisk’s reflection.”
