Consider this paragraph:

Far from wishing Harry a happy birthday, none of the Dursleys made any sign that they had noticed Harry enter the room, but Harry was far too used to this to care.

I literally don't get why it's not either enters the room as Harry is 3rd person singular, or entered as the other verbs are all in past tenses.
