What does the epilogue show? That Harry/Ginny and Ron/Hermione are happily married, that Draco has redeemed himself, that Harry is a good godfather to Teddy and that Harry believes Snape to be the bravest man he ever knew. That can all be hinted at otherwise, obviously not the actual marriage stuff but at least that they're together.

I could edit my last post but I feel like bumping the thread.

I don't mind the epilogue, but it's not the most important thing for me. I don't feel invested in it being very long. I can't imagine it will be.

in that case, yates really better make sure the snape scenes are well done!

I can't imagine why else the "you've got your mother's eyes" was a theme.
