Here Lies Melisandre…

We’re a month closer to the premiere of the final season of Game of Thrones! Since I’m trying to get something Westeros-related written every month until the show airs (when I hope to have weekly content) – this month I was inspired by the longer and longer December nights to write something about Melisandre of Asshai, for the Watchers on the Wall website.

In her last appearance on the show, Melisandre hinted about a significant event that’ll be happening – most likely – in Season Eight, and I did some exhausting (if not totally exhaustive) speculation on that.

I’m not saying my feature is a hilarious read, but one of the first comments on the site was complaining how my quippy witticisms caused them to snort coffee through their nose.

Good luck.

    Ooooo, awesome feature! Bravo!

    And the character asides were hilarious!

    Oh Melisandre. I both love and hate her – she rose from nothing to become a powerful witch, and she’s doing her best, but MAN when she screws up she goes big.

    I really like your point about having faith in how GRRM will bring closure to the story in the books. Yeah, the show is diverging but books are ALWAYS better than adaptations – and I kind of dig that. It’s fun to watch a movie but then to read the book and see what was REALLY going on – it’s like finding a whole new wing of a house you’ve already visited.
