Booked Paris-Brugge but Thalys ticket only shows Paris-Brussels

Original thalys.com confirmation shows Paris-Brugge with a connection.

12:25 > 14:58 • Changes: 1 • 2:33

But my email confirmation, e-tickets and now Thalys.com only show Paris-Brussels train with no indication of Brussels-Brugge.

The ticket does have this note. Is this normal? And reliable?

***PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE YOUR CONFIRMATION EMAIL PRINTED OR AVAILABLE ON YOUR SMARTPHONE SO THAT YOU CAN SHOW YOUR TICKET BARCODE WHEN TRAVELLING ON BOARD DOMESTIC TRAINS IN BELGIUM. Ticket also includes a transit pass any Belgian station. The price of your ticket for your journey from or to any station in Belgium aboard the SNCB national trains is included in the overall price of your ticket. Each carrier is responsible only for the part that it operates

It looks like you have booked an ANY BELGIAN STATION ticket.

Domestic trains in Belgium are non-reserveable and you are not bound to a specific train, so I guess the ticket only displays the portion of the journey which is fixed and on which you have a reserved seat.

That makes sense I guess. Thanks D!

You can both stop guessing... That's exactly how/what it is!
