The reason Severus Snape has the same patronus as Lily’s is because he was deeply in love with her and the grief and guilt he felt after her death may have cause his patronus to change into a doe, or it already was a doe depending on when he first cast the spell.
Snapes creates the Patronus in Dumbledores office to show that the reason he does anything at all for Harry is because he loved and still loves Lily. Snape simply cast his patronus so harry wouldnt hesitate to follow it. Since a patronus isnt an act of dark magic and he couldnt show to harry that it was Snape.
Severus Snape’s Patronus was also a doe, which symbolized his love for Lily. Snape uses his doe Patronus to show Dumbledore that he never fell out of love with Lily, his childhood best friend. According to Rowling, Snape was the only Death Eater who could conjure a Patronus charm at all.
As for everyone’s favourite child-bullying adult, Snape’s Killing Curse was ‘blue’ due to the cyanish background of the film scene. It was actually green, but the camera and effects made a bluish overlay which overlapped the green spell.
Harry Potter asks “Sorry, but, what’s curious?” because Olivander expresses his shock that the wand that chooses Harry, happens to be the brother (or twin) of the wand that chose Tom Riddle almost 50 years earlier, by saying “Curious. Very curious!” Harry merely wants to know what Olivander thinks is so curious.
For the Potter uninitiated, “always” is how Snape explains to Dumbledore in the final book why his Patronus takes the same shape as the one belonging to his long-lost love: Harry Potter’s mother, Lily. “After all this time?” “Always,” said Snape.
The purpose of the flashback was to show that Snape had loved Lily unrequited the entire time. He had begged Voldemort to spare her, and when that did not worked out, his grief became his motivation for turning himself over to Dumbledore.
Sirius, an unregistered Animagus with the form of a large black dog, conjures a Patronus that is also a large black dog.
When a Scorpio fights for a loved one, they will fight to the death. An eagle will do anything, even something reckless, to save its loved ones. An eagle is easily a likely Patronus to be conjured by a Scorpio.
Those tears from Snape were because he had just been bitten by Nagano but he was also thinking about Lily and how he was going to be with her therefore, his tears were partially caused by his memories with Lily.
