Subscriber active since. Warning: There are major spoilers ahead for "Game of Thrones" season six. Fans were stunned Sunday evening when the "Game of Thrones" writers threw a huge curve ball into the already crazy and magical world of Westeros and beyond. But it turns out, some fans have been guessing this plot twist for more than four years. Fans went bananas online as Melisandre removed her dress something we're all used to by now, seeing as getting naked and serving the Lord of Light are two of Melisandre's favorite activities and transformed into a bent and ancient old lady. While the twist came as a surprise to many, there were some fans who saw this coming.
Here's why some fans had guessed Melisandre's youthful appearance was a farce all along.
The first time viewers were introduced to Melisandre was in season two, when Stannis was burning effigies of the seven gods from the Faith of the Seven — the common religion in southern Westeros. The maester in Stannis' employ was a man named Cressen, and he considered Melisandre and her foreign god R'hllor the Lord of Light blasphemous. So based on this scene, we clearly learn that Melisandre is somehow immortal or immune to life-threatening poisons. The glowing jewel also seemed ificant from the get-go. But then, the actors themselves provided even more hints. Included in the round-up is a quote from Oliver Ford Davies, the actor who played Cressen.
During a interview with Flicks and the City, Davies described his initial confusion when acting out the poisoning scene Melisandre bathtub scene Carice Van Houten Melisandre : "In between takes I said to her 'I'm not quite up to speed on this, why don't you die? Van Houten herself also said something similar during an Access Hollywood interview back in When a reporter asked where Melisandre's power came from, and specifically if it had to do with her necklace, Van Houten replied: " She definitely has certain powers. So both Davies and Van Houten had spilled the beans nearly four years ago, and fans immediately began putting two and two together.
The series — both on TV and in the books — has multiple characters who are essentially "undead. And in the written series, Catelyn Stark is resurrected and becomes a revenge-seeking zombie. Back inRedditor DarthGregor postulated that Melisandre may be another "undead" character. In the books, Melisandre reveals to Jon Snow that she's used a type of magic called "glamouring" in order to disguise a man as a different person. This hasn't been brought up in the show, but fans used this book factoid to point to the idea that Melisandre herself may be using her necklace to "glamour" herself.
A wrench was tossed into this idea when, during the season two finale, Melisandre was shown naked in a bathtub without her necklace on. She was speaking with Selyse, and still looked totally normal. It's possible that the showrunners simply blanked, and this is a a continuity error. Melisandre bathtub scene wasn't wearing the necklace in this scene. Was that a mistake? HBO One person guessed that Selyse's ardent belief in the Lord of Light meant Melisandre didn't need to magically alter her appearance.
Selyse saw Melisandre Melisandre bathtub scene a beautiful young woman without the help of additional tricks, only her faith. Either way, the ificance of Melisandre's appearance in relation to her necklace has been a longtime focus of fan theories for years. Most people spent the time between season five and six debating about Jon Snow's future in the series. Many people ourselves included are convinced he will be resurrected somehow, and odds are this will involve Melisandre's powers. A few weeks before the premiere of season six, Liam Cunningham Ser Davos Seaworth and Van Houten made an interesting comment in regards to the first episode.
Van Houten jumped in and said: " Yes…! The "what you think it is" comment was probably referring to theories about Jon's resurrection. But n ow that we've seen the episode, they were clearly alluding to the reveal about Melisandre's true age. Redditor jamieandclaire guessed this well before the episode aired by connecting this comment to a scene in the released trailer: Melisandre undressing with a strange look on her face.
This shot of Melisandre undressing was in the full-length trailer released. HBO "[Season six] opening scene with Mel will reveal her to be years old," jamoeandclaire wrote earlier this month. She's revealing her true form to Davos, hence the hesitant look on her face. Though she was alone in the room, no Davos or Night's Watch men to witness the change, this prediction was very close. The closing scene showed Melisandre doing a sort of nightly routine, removing her clothing and then necklace to unveil what she really looks like underneath that iconic red dress.
In HBO's "Inside the Episode" segment that aired right after the credits, showrunner David Benioff confirmed what fans had believed all along. The creep factor of Melisandre sleeping with Stannis and trying to seduce Jon aside, her real age is an indicator that she's more all-knowing than we thought. Sure, she interprets her visions incorrectly from time to time. She erroneously identified Stannis as Azor Ahai, a prophecized hero reborn. But her age would give her a general leg-up when it comes to understanding the bigger picture of the war between humans and the White Walkers.
More importantly, if she was somehow gifted the power of life after death, is this something she can pass on? We know the Lord of Light has the ability to bring people back from the dead, as evidenced by Beric Dondarrion. But maybe Melisandre will sacrifice her own eternal life to awaken Jon Snow. This could be a more powerful version of the resurrection seen with Thoros and Beric.
No wonder this episode was titled "The Red Woman" — fans are sure to be discussing Melisandre nonstop in the week leading Melisandre bathtub scene to episode two.
We'll have to wait and see what becomes of Melisandre in future episodes, but hopefully her powers can be channeled towards the hero everyone wants back: Jon Snow.
