The timid prostitute [book spoilers]

Recommended Posts

Did anyone else think the timid prostitute might be the show version of Jeyne Poole?



The show keeps Jeyne Poole out of King's Landing, but we know she has a somewhat prominent part to play in the coming narrative, though not impossible to write around. Considering the lack of Jeyne's prominence even in season 1 where she was actually cast, a suitable replacement needs to be found and this is the season to do so.



Thoughts?

I don't think Jeyne Poole needs a backstory at all really on the show, gets introduced as some girl to be fake Arya. Might even wait till at Ramsays wedding to introduce her at all.

Hmm I don't know. Fortunately, I don't think it would do for her (her name's Myranda btw, I think) to play Jeyne's part when she's been around at the Dreadfort all along. You'd think it would have to be someone sent by the Lannisters or their allies, no?


Btw I'm not sure I like where this story of Ramsay's girlfriend is going.

Wrong prostitute, if "Myranda" is a prostitute. I meant the first girl Oberyn disrobes at the King's Landing brothel, later dismissed by his paramour as "timid."

Oh! I see. It could be though Jeyne Poole or her replacement won't be properly introduced untill next season. By that time, it really won't change a thing to have a new girl or one we've barely seen once a year before. Unless we see more of her this season but I'd say there might be enough going on already to spend time on a character that's not really necessary not has any reason to be entertaining just yet.

It wouldn't be too out of character for LF to mention something to Sansa if asked about Jeyne. Then viewers might go back and rewatch episode one to make that connection. Dunno, but I think it's very possible that the timid prostitute is Jeyne.

this just blew my mind and i would love it if that happened. i can't look it up right now, but was she young? could she pass for a teenager?
