See, that's what I'm trying to get it: grandfather in English means 2 generations ago: for example if I say my grandfather through my mom's side, I mean my mom's father, not my great-grandfather (who'd instead be my mom's father's father). So in the English translation, it means he's referring to Hugo (even if he never says his name). That's why I was trying to figure out if there was a mis-translation, because unlike cousin (which can be used to mean diffrent degrees of relation) grandfather is more specific and not used to meant anyone past 2 generations :)

See, that's what I'm trying to get it: grandfather in English means 2 generations ago: for example if I say my grandfather through my mom's side, I mean my mom's father, not my great-grandfather (who'd instead be my mom's father's father). So in the English translation, it means he's referring to Hugo (even if he never says his name).
