The real big question this season is this: Who the hell is Talisa?? We faithful readers of Asoiaf we expected a certain Jeyne Westerling, what happened? But above all we will discover that in reality is Talisa Jeyne undercover??
This change was probably the stupidest thing they have done IMO. OK, make her lowborn, I can live with that. Make her and Robb in wuv ( I'll be honest, I strongly disliked their fluffy moments.) despite the fact that robb married her because he already slept with her and was his duty and they fell in love love later. But why did they change her name too? Would Jeyne Westerling from Volantis would be any different? Or why would she be from Volantis at all? Why not Westeros? Grrrrr HBO pisses me off.
Supposedly the directors of the show didn't like/find it believable the reasons why Robb married Jeyne (jeopardizing and condemning the fate of his followers and family over a one night stand, or marrying a sassy suffragette from Volantis for love?)
I doubt it. I suppose that Jane won't play such a big role in the other books as we all thought, so it was safe for Martin and the makers of the show to replace her with Talisa. But yeah, I understand you, when she first appears and till the end of season 2 I was like "Ok, this is all well, but Jane will come nay minute. Right? RIGHT?"
Maybe they changed Jeyne with Talisa because of :SPOILER for AFFC: the theory of the narrow/wide hips. Maybe because we don't know the truth yet (if the Jeyne Westerling Jaime found at Riverrun is the real one) the producers just put another irrelevant character in hger place? Just a thought... Oh and that was my reaction when I saw that scene too
Pissed me off. I liked Jeyne much more than Talisa... I don't like how they are changing details like this in the show, at least True Blood admits they are changing the books! (I however do like that they didnt kill Laffyette...)
