I didn't see it either. I love that scene because when reading the book I wanted so badly for Harry to show any sign that he cares about Hermione, too, about her being devastated by Ron's departure, but he was merely ignoring her. The height of his indifference was when he couldn't stand her company after she'd just saved his life, because she'd broken his wand (I guess wand trumps life). It felt so unnatural. So this scene in the film smoothed out the whole narrative there - it remedied the book's weakness as far as I'm concerned. I'm grateful for it.
