Jurassic Park's Sequels Completely Forgot About Alan's Biggest Character Change

Alan Grant (Sam Neill) leaves Isla Nublar a transformed man, but the Jurassic Park sequels completely forget about his biggest character change. None of the characters in Jurassic Park walk away from their experiences unscathed after the chaos connected to John Hammond's defiance of science and humanity in order to bring dinosaurs into the world, but Grant's metamorphosis is very personal. Living through a life-or-death crisis while visiting the theme park for the first time puts certain aspects of his life in sharp perspective, particularly those that pertain to his relationship with Dr. Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern).
