This Daenerys and Melisandre Theory Could Seriously Change Next Episode
How many of us our holding our breath for Sunday? Dany and Jon will finally meet (with photos from the upcoming episode confirming it)!!! However, there's another meeting, or rather reunion, that other fans are concerned about for the moment: what will happen when Davos, who is traveling with Jon. sees that Melisandre, the Red Woman, is helping Daenerys?
One clever Redditor user has a theory.
Reddit user trimeta noticed something that could turn Daenerys against Melisandre, possibly motivating her to even kill the Red Priestess. As you may or may not remember (and if you don't where have you been and why are you reading this instead of catching up on GoT), Davos and Melisandre don't exactly have a good relationship. Melisandre led Davos' best friend, Stannis Baratheon to his downfall and notably was the one behind the death of sweet Shireen Baratheon for the sake of magic.
Davos has absolutely no reason to trust Melisandre and will probably tell Dany about what went down in the past, specifically concerning Shireen. Trimeta predicts the conversation will go something like this:
Davos: Begging your pardon, Your Grace, I know you don't have children, but imagine what it would be like to have your child sacrificed in a dark magic ritual that didn't even work.
Daenerys: I don't have to imagine, Ser Davos.
How many of us forgot about this parallel? Of course, in season 1, Dany was pregnant with Khal Drogo's baby, who was killed after a ritual performed by Lhazareen godswife, Mirri Maz Duur. Of course, killing Daenerys' baby did not end well for the Mirri Maz Duur, who is burnt alive.
Could the same happen to Melisandre? We'll have to wait til next episode to find out.
