However, I believe that they put it in, not to favour Jacob, but because it was a quick and easy way to get her to La Push for the scenes there.
The movie and its script were sloppy and too quickly put together, and David Slade's approach was completely wrong for it. There were enough Bella/Edward moments for the romance to be prominent, but they were poorly done (as were, I believe, all the romantic moments in the movie) and usually the resolutions to Bella and Edward's arguments were cut. This added to the feeling that they did not have the love that they once had. Adding insult to injury was the final scene, when Bella says that she wants to be with Edward because she wants to be a vampire, not so much because of him. When you take all this, including the ridiculous notion of Jessica Stanley being valedictorian and Carlisle being able to sneak up on Edward ... just generally very sloppy. They were in too much of a hurry to release it. That's one of the reasons I'm glad they're taking their time with the next two.

It's interesting though, in another forum I was visiting at the time Eclipse came out, a whole host of Team Jacob supporters came in saying that the movie hadn't been fair on Jacob (they hadn't liked New Moon, either). I spent a lot of time working out exactly what the problem was for them. In the end it seemed to be that the "Eclipse" line and the epilogue were left out. I understand that that was disappointing for them, and I hope that they're feeling a little better now that it seems the epilogue is going to be included, at least in some way, in BD pt 1. That's what the trailer suggests, anyway. And Jacob's departure is more relevant to this movie than the last, as it's in this movie that we see why he left and, of course, we see him come back.
Tornado wrote:Yes, they did film it, using ageing makeup on both Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner. Apparently it looked so fake and terrible they decided it would make people laugh if they included it. This is why it isn't in the extras. That is for things that they left out because they slowed to pacing a little or made the movie too long. That scene was left out because it just didn't work.
