J.K. Rowling hinted that Snape was a good guy way back in the Goblet of Fire

If you're emotionally invested in everything to do with Harry Potter series, and, more specifically the dramatic and unpredictable character arc of Severus Snape, then you might think you've finally picked up on all the hints about his true motives throughout the series. 

Well, we hate to burst your bubble, but we're guessing there's one thing you DID miss first time round, because if you hadn't - you'd have known a great deal of the plot in Deathly Hallows by the time you finished reading Goblet of Fire. Yep, J.K. Rowling inserted a little trickery into her 4th novel that we've only just discovered now.

The passage concerns the scene when Harry and Professor Moody (AKA Barty Crouch Jr) have a confrontation after the final of the Triwizard Tournament, and Harry notices three figures in Moody's foe-glass:

"Moody was thrown backward onto the office floor. Harry, still staring at the place where Moody's face had been, saw Albus Dumbledore, Professor Snape, and Professor McGonagall looking back at him out of the Foe-Glass."

As it's actually Barty Crouch Jr's spyglass (a Death Eater for any muggles out there) his perspective on what constitutes an enemy is a hell of a lot different to anyone elses. Hence why Albus Dumbledore, Professor McGonogall, and yes, Professsor Snape are considered foes to him.

So, if Severus REALLY WAS a dedicated Death Eater, his face would never have never shown up on the foe-glass. In conclusion, J.K. Rowling wins once again.
