Speaking as someone who was estranged from my grandfather due to a rift in the family until I was 10, I don't see it that way at all. It's a powerful experience to meet a parental figure so late in life. Part of you is terrified because they are larger than life, the other part of you laments the time you were denied together. It seems quite emotionally plausible to me that Talia would have all sorts of inner turmoil as a result of her father's premature death, including a nice dose of guilt for holding a grudge against him.
