The night is dark and full of terrors and that rings true for the person who first said that line on the show Game of Thrones. Spoilers ahead of everything up to season eight, episode three! Melisandre, the Red Woman, met her demise at the conclusion of the Battle of Winterfell but her impact on the conflict and the world at large and still be felt. Going back to season three, Melisandre gave Arya a prophecy, one that she began working on without even really knowing it. Arya would shut brown eyes, blue eyes and green eyes forever. Arya recently took out blue eyes with the death of the Night King. Not only is this fulfilling the prophecy of the eye colour, but it would also confirm that Arya is the Prince that was Promised, Azor Ahai, a title many thought would turn out to be Jon Snow. Despite getting many prophecies wrong before, Melisandre and Arya are seemingly two for three on the eye’s being shut forever, if we can assume that “brown eyes” was Walder Frey. That leaves, quite possibly, only one person left on the list and there’s a good chance that person was Arya’s original number two target from all those years ago. Does that mean Melisandre has been manipulating events ever since crossing paths with Arya? Or is Melisandre more of a parlour trick sorcerer who can sometimes be of use but quite often doesn’t see the whole picture. The answer to these questions lies (hopefully) in the final episodes to come!
