No, Stephenie never specifically says it is the exact same vision. I'm not sure how much SM ever brought that up, because the detailed version was in MS, and she talks about that as little as possible. We do know that the image from MS comes up several times there and a few times in TW.Tornado wrote:Did she say that Alice saw the same thing? (Bella becoming a vampire) I thought she had just said that Alice saw that Edward would weaken, much as he had when originally trying to stay away from Bella in Twilight. Alice stopped seeing the visions of Bella's duel future then, but he did weaken and get together with Bella. she might have just assumed that the same thing would happen this time.
The solidity or haziness of that image was an excellent prop for MS, though, and it's always the same one. No other futuristic visions are brought up post-change.
I swear, I can almost see it now in the closing credits of BD2.
I have assumed that it is the same vision which Alice relys on in NM, until the cliff diving. The vision was still solid, meaning that Edward must return to Bella at some point. It doesn't have to be the same, it could be different. Aesthetically, I think it is pretty cool. That scene from "Back to the Future" just popped in my head, with Michael J. Fox starting to disappear and then becoming solid again. Weird, huh?
Besides being a cool trick by SM, though, it also had that advantage of being a still image, no Edward, so Edward was allowed to draw his own conclusions.
