Harry Potter: This deleted scene with Draco is even better than the current ending, don’t you think?

Let’s face it, many of us have been annoyed and then fascinated by Draco Malfoy. Like Severus Snape, the character is one of the best character developments of the saga. Yet, Draco Malfoy could have surprised us even more. The proof on video, with this beautiful and well shot scene, but at the end excluded from the final assembly.
