A little old school Les Mis gossip...it's been rumored for a long time that the reason Eponine had a more prominent role in the stage version was because the original Eponine was having an affair with the show's co-director.

I liked having the Bishop at the end instead of Eponine. In terms of how the story was told in the movie, it made no sense for her to be there. She and Valjean had never met. Gavroche giving Valjean the note was how it happened in the book, Marius specifically sent Gavroche to try and keep him off the barricade.

I remember in the book, just before Valjean died, he was asked if he wanted a priest. Valjean said he already had one, and pointed upwards, possibly alluding that the Bishop was there.

In the end, it was Valjean's story. He spent a lifetime repaying that that debt of the stolen silver, and it was it was the man who made that deal with him welcoming him into heaven at the end, the debt repaid.
