    Yup. She was a footnote in the books, almost.

    That's of course an issue with a TV series. In a book, you can introduce a character and them simply get rid of them or have them play a tiny role in the next book.

    In a TV show, that's much harder. If someone is introduced as a main character, it's tougher to reduce their role to a minor one for the next season...

    Well, in the book, Jessica was far from a main character.

    Well, there is certainly one character in the books who's central in the first book and becomes an incidental character later one:

    Sorry to jump into the thread two weeks late, but, he is?

    I thought it was revealed that the warepanther story was all BS.

    I think the werepanther story arc was a joke by the producers on the book readers.

    Oh, my bad. I forgot that they didn't have him change. I remembered the getting bitten story, but forgot about the fact that he didn't become one. Thanks for the reminder.

    Besides, the problem with the books is that EVEYRONE is supernatural. It's annoying.
