Season 8 predictions: The fate of every major 'Game of Thrones' character
Will your favorite character die in the final season? Here are our odds and expert predictions.
When last we saw Melisandre, played by Dutch actress Carice Anouk van Houten, the red priestess was fleeing Westeros under the penalty of death. She declared, however, that she would not stay away permanently and would eventually return to 'face her end.'
With that hint, it's a fair bet that Melisandre will have a role to play in this season. That said, we wouldn't be surprised if she makes her grand (and final) entrance back to Westeros with some company. Back in season 6, the red priestess Kinvara, played by Israeli actress Ania Bukstein, made a significant impression on Varys and Tyrion while in Meereen. Could this powerful red priestess back Melisandre in her return?
Fingers crossed that these ladies of the Lord of Light will go out together in a blaze of glory.
