** When the sequel was first announced in the late 1990s, novellist Frederick Forsyth worked on the story with Lloyd Webber, and his subsequent novel ''The Phantom of Manhattan'' is a giant What Could Have Been for the plot. While some elements -- TheEdwardianEra, Coney Island as a key setting, the Phantom taking an interest in Christine's son (called Phillipe in the book), the premise of him hiring her to perform for him once more, [[spoiler: Christine's death]], etc. -- carried over into ''Love Never Dies'', most of the rest did not. The villain turned out to be the Phantom's ''literally'' money-worshipping business partner, and key new characters included a newspaper reporter and a Catholic priest who served as Phillipe's tutor. The Phantom wrote a whole opera (set during the American Civil War) for Christine to play the lead role in, and as in the original show he took the place of the male lead during the performance. The CharacterDerailment of the returning characters was absent (save, perhaps, for the revelation that Madame Giry was responsible for the Phantom living in the Opera House to begin with and helped him escape authorities afterward). As for [[spoiler: the child's conception]], it was explained as [[spoiler: taking place in the Phantom's lair after he kidnapped Christine during ''Don Juan Triumphant'' but before Raoul arrived to save her; it's not clear whether it was consensual]].
