Viewing this through the lens of the TV show

Given that Robb's TV-wife Talisa died (along with their unborn child) at the Red Wedding, then doesn't that pretty much kill any speculation in regards to Jeyne's character? -- La Víbora Roja 22:29, 9 June 2014 (UTC)

Nah, the TV show is a separate entity that diverges from the books quite a bit. (See: Marillion)--RumHam 14:03, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

Yeah but the guy is still dead, either way. The show diverges on details, not final outcomes. -- La Víbora Roja 17:24, 11 June 2014 (UTC)
Not always. In Marillions case, yes. But in the last episode (episode 9), two characters died who are still very much alive in Dance with Dragons (not placing names in case you haven't seen the episode yet) --Rhaenys_Targaryen 08:48, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
Yes, I've seen it. My point is, a divergence between book and show for a couple of minor supporting characters is one thing, but a divergence along the lines of ROBB STARK HAS AN HEIR vs. ROBB STARK'S KID IS DEAD is massive. -- La Víbora Roja 09:21, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
It seems highly unlikely that Jeyne is pregnant, due to Sybells potions. Also, the hip thing has been confirmed as having been a mistake, if I am recalling it correctly. However, GRRM has stated that we'll definitly see Jeyne again.
In any case, the TV show cannot be seen as any evidence for a theory, or as any evidence against a theory. Though telling largely the same story, the TV show is separate from the books. Especially the further the TV show comes, the bigger the differences will become.--Rhaenys_Targaryen 09:53, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
Rather than changing any of the existing article, I've simply added a blurb about the show's divergence at the bottom. Hope that works. -- La Víbora Roja 18:29, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
