The miniseries pretty much discarded the Hawat subplot. I didn't notice its absence.
Jogging my foggy memory, you mean Thufir Hawat? I'm pretty sure the miniseries just kills him off during the initial Harkonnen attack. Like the loss of the 'Usul' name, it's a wise choice in simplifying the material for the screen, I think.
