Watch Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 1 – The Red Woman
As shown in the closing scene of the episode, Melisandre has been keeping her very look magically disguised. Her visage that is authentic is not that of 39-year old celebrity Carice van Houten — rather, she’s vastly mature. It is a disclosure that definitely gets us examine some earlier scenes — like the seduction of Stannis Baratheon of Melisandre back in season two and tried seduction of Jon Snow in season five — in a fresh light.
The major question, obviously, is whether the magic of Melisandre is strong enough to raise the late Jon Snow from the grave. And this week while we did not get an answer to that, Jon’s body stays complete and in prime condition for some magic reanimation.
