As we all know during Sunday’s episode of Game of Thrones we were all in shock, and in awe at the true colors of Melisandre. Melisandre played by Carice Van Houten, revealed her true self to the audience.
The scene opened up with Melisandre grieving over the alleged loss of Jon Snow, she then goes to look in the mirror, and undress revealing her flawless figure, however when Melisandre decides to take her necklace off, things take an unexpected turn, and it is then that we see Melisandre’s true reflection. Instead of looking at her perfect figure, her youth, and beauty, we instead saw a real life witch, who has lived more than a hundred years.
However one question must be asked:
How did this happen earlier?
This gave us so many questions to ask? Was it intended?
So much speculation over the nature and the meaning of this necklace however only one thing was deduced from our speculations. Our theory states that Melisandre’s youth is not associated with the necklace directly.
Another theory states that at the time and in this previous scene Melisandre was actually talking to Stanis’ wife Selyse. Selyse and in that conversation had an awful look on her face, as though she was either baffled at the look of the real Melisandre, or due to her religious nature did not look at her directly since she was in the nude.
So what do you guys think?
