Sansa and Jeyne Poole, Did I miss something?

Recommended Posts

I'm currently reading SOS for the first time. I have to admit I've already skipped ahead and read all of Sansa's chapters awhile ago :dunce:

Anyway, my question is, when Sansa and Littlefinger are on the boat together, why does she not ask him about her best friend Jeyne Poole? It's easy to miss but this exchange happens in her POV Sansa IV AGOT

Lord Petyr leaned forward. "I'll find a place for her."
"Not in the city," said the queen.
"Do you take me for a fool?"

After this Jeyne is removed from her room and she never hears from her again. She and LF haven't had much interaction at this point so I would think the last time she saw/spoke with him would be fresh in her memory upon seeing him again. I feel like her not asking after Jeyne could be important in some way. Or just a plot hole.

I'd love to get other people's thoughts! :)

Jeyne makes an appearance is SOS, although she is not identified.  Not sure why Sansa doesn't ask about her.  It is widely speculated that Jeyne will have an effect on Sansa's story in the future.

Sansa is not that quick on the uptake, especially following periods of high stress. She forgets about Arya until after writing her letters to Cat, Robb, etc. She ...


… mis-remembers her parting with the Hound. She is utterly oblivious to the fact that she has revealed herself as a total fraud to Miranda Royce.

Recall that on the boat, the first thing she sees is Dontos shot full of quarrels and then set on fire. That's pretty shocking to someone like Sansa and would certainly be enough to drive away any thoughts of a friend whom she has not even thought of in times of calm for the better part of a year. But she's had plenty of time to broach the subject since.

Maybe Jeyne and Sansa will meet again, and it will be the start (or the final straw) of the wool being pulled from her eyes about Littlefinger.
