Do you think Snape views Lupin as a spineless bystander or just as cruel as the others? Everyone says Lupin grew up, but he didn't. He was very passive aggressive and patronizing when he talked to Snape.He acted overtly polite but gave misleading information behind his back. "He was jealous of James quidditch" was bullshit and he knew it, but he tried to sway Harry's opinion without all the facts. Like I get telling an orphan good things but fuck, at least acknowledge what you did wasn't right.
