Daenerys & Melisandre 'Game Of Thrones' Theory Makes So Much Sense
This Sunday's episode of Game of Thrones is finally going to give fans the meet-up we've been waiting seven seasons for, but a new fan theory is making a convincing case the Daenerys-Jon Snow meeting will be more interesting because of a couple of side characters reuniting at the same time. A Daenerys and Melisandre theory has popped up, pointing out viewers should actually be more interested in how the Red Priestess and Jon's travel companion Ser Davos will interact when they see one another again.
As one Redditor reminded us, Davos and Melisandre don't exactly get along... to put it lightly. Since photos from the upcoming third episode show Jon and Davos arriving at Dragonstone to meet Dany, and we already saw Melisandre is cozying up next to the Dragon Queen, it's pretty safe to assume there will be a blow-up when Davos once again sees the woman who led his old bestie Stannis Baratheon to ruin.
Specifically, Reddit user trimeta predicts Davos has a pretty good chance of turning Daenerys against Melisandre. Obviously, the most grievous thing Melisandre has done is convince Stannis to kill his own daughter Shireen, and Davos might bring that up to Daenerys. The real interesting aspect comes up when you remember back in Season 1, Daenerys sacrificed her own unborn child in a similar magical ritual in order to save Khal Drogo. This parallel might just be the thing to ally Dany with Davos and Jon against Melisandre.
There is a bit of a snag to this theory in the episode three preview photos, though. The new pics show Jon, Davos, and Daenerys all together in the Dragonstone throne room, but Melisandre is outside with Varys in a photo. If she knew Davos was on his way, it's pretty likely that she would be hiding from him, so the two may not actually reunite in the new episode after all.
But still, now that Davos and Melisandre are both going to be in the Daenerys camp, she can't avoid him forever, and it's bound to be a huge blow-up when they come face-to-face again. How Daenerys reacts to their eventual dispute is going to solidify the final alliance she moves forward with.
