T he last time we saw Melisandre, she shadowed her and Vary’s death at the end of Thronespel Season 7. While Season 8 of Thronespel ] has not addressed her or suggested that she be shown at any time soon, it can all change in Episode 3’s Great Battle of Winterfell. Melisandre promised that she would die in Westeros in mind, a brazen new theory says that the red woman is already in Winterfell in disguise and ready to help fight the white hikers.
Redditor u / jt clark claims that the red witch has already made its season 8 return in episode 2, we do not realize it at that time.
“She used her ruby to glamor like this little girl with a burnt scar,” they write. [1
9659002] Melisandre is not exactly an enchant, but we know she has the ability to mask her appearance. We saw her true form (an extremely old woman) in season 6, so it is possible that she could use similar magic to take on a new identity during season 8. After all, the red witch is not exactly popular with many of Winterfell’s current inhabitants. She is also on Arya Stark’s notorious death list.
Is that you, Red Priestess?
If the theory turns out to be true, it means that Melisandre knew that Ser Davos and Gilly would convince her to hide in the Winterfell crypt for safety. This complements the theory of the night king who turns the deceased Starks and the women, and the children hide in the crypt to immortal beauty. Given that Melisandre has no combat training, her powers would be much better utilized against the night king’s plan. Although how to use them to help them, there is someone who guesses.
It is possible that she may once again surprise us all by bringing the dead strong ones back to life to fight for the good.
Melisandre has played a key role in Thrones game but she seemed proud that she had come with Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen together in season 7. Instead of calling it a day and going home to Volantis permanently , Melisandre hinted that she has seen her own death and that happens in Westeros. Always the loyal servant of the Lord of Light, may have gone to Winterfell to help in the fight against Night King and his army because she already knows it is where she will die.
