in the interest of not repeating the general consensus of anyone who reads this, i'm gonna ask a question. what did tom feel remorse about to reconnect his soul?
Tom didn't feel any remorse. It was the magi in Harry's blood. Or something like that. Makes no sense in hindsight. But from what I remember when writing, Harry felt so much remorse, that it literally coursed through his veins, due to magic. Considering accidental magic is reflected by your own feelings, not too unrealistic. I hope that answers your question.
