How does Ron return to the burrow without alerting deatheaters? They would definitely be watching the Weasleys and for Ron to show up there and then leave doesnt seem to fit. Deatheaters are looking for Harry and can assume he is with HG and RW so they would be looking for those 2 as well.
Glad Ron is back but seeems unlikely to happen without putting everyone in jeopardy
It never says anywhere that Ron was at the Burrows in the meantime, or that he was with family, or anyone else. But then, where would he have been?

I never considered that the doe could have been Snape's Patronus. My first thought was Lily, but I decided that doesn't make much sense because she's dead, and JKR is adamant about the death being final thing unless they return as a ghost. It could be Snape. But I am still completely torn as to whether or not Snape is evil. I have too much evidence for both sides and I can't seem to settle on one!
I'm glad we're getting to Xenophilius in the next chapter. I've been wondering about him since we read about his Grindelwald symbol in the wedding chapter.

I'm starting to waver in my certainty of Snape's evilness. Is it possible that the doe is Snape's patronus and that it does, indeed, represent Lily, whose husband was able to transform into a stag?
Once you cast your first Patronus, whatever it is, it stays that animal (except for Tonks). Even if Snape was infatuated with Lily when he cast his first Patronus, it doesn't mean anything - Lily didn't like James when they were in school together. Besides, Snape had no way to know James was an animagus who turned into a Stag.
Even if he did, I don't think Snape is soft enough to have a cute little animal as his Patronus. It's probably a troll! LOL!!

However, with the appearance of the Silver Doe, I feel that someone is watching over them. I do feel though that they must do this on their own because that will make them into the Great Wizards/Witch that they are destined to become.
