Though Melisandre demanded Stannis’s loyalty to herself and the lord of light, she never returned that loyalty, as men, to her, were nothing more than tools in a fierce game. After sleeping with and serving Stannis, Melisandre left for the Riverlands where she found and slept with Gendry.
His allies and even his own men (Read: Davos) suggest that he turn back to Castle Black. Stannis stubbornly suggests that they will move forward, but his reluctance as to what needs to be done is evident. Melisandre uses this as an opportunity to tighten her grip on the king.
Melisandre is always focuses on the Great war to come. She thinks their will be a war between R’hllor And the great Other. According to her, The hero of R’hllor or the lord of light, Azor ahai, is Stannis. Her ultimate goal is to help stannis and defeat the great other.

After Brienne and Sansa reach Castle Black, Brienne later confronts Davos and Melisandre. She tells them how she witnessed Stannis’s defeat at Winterfell.

Melisandre remained warm at the Wall while others were cold because she wore that choker. Melisandre removed the necklace to die. She decided to give up the enchantment as it was keeping her alive.
1 Stannis’ camp ravaged by the good men. 2 Not enough men and supplies to secure the battle against the Boltons. 3 Not enough supplies to return to Castle Black, and anyway retreating is not an option for Stannis.
One of the biggest ongoing mysteries of Melisandre has been her age. In Season 6, we learned that Melisandre is actually very, very old, and that the red choker she wears is the key to her youthful outward appearance. With her purpose fulfilled, Melisandre was finally free to die, it seems.
Upon the news of Robb’s death, Davos releases Gendry to prevent him from being sacrificed. Stannis subsequently sentences Davos to death but is swayed by Melisandre, who encourages him to travel North to aid the Night’s Watch against the White Walkers emerging from beyond the Wall.
Melisandre is largely viewed as an evil woman in the eyes of people of Westeros and viewers of GOT. It was a good ending to show that despite her horrifying ways of doing things, she was ultimately on the good side and was doing what she believed was right for the greater good.
Stannis sent Davos away because he knew Davos would have died to stop Stannis from killing Shireen. Stannis also had great respect for Davos. His resolve and willingness to die to save Shireen would have stopped Stannis from burning her, as he was able to change his mind the in past.
What huge army? He has about 1500 troops at the Wall in the books, and never explicitly is stated to have more than that in the show. Also, Stannis has most of the Royal Fleet, leftover from when he took it to Dragonstone after leaving King’s Landing, he was Robert’s Master of Ships prior to the outbreak of war.
Stannis was answering Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch Jeor Mormont’s call for aid against Mance Rayder’s attack. He took both Davos Seaworth and Melisandre’s advice that to sit the Iron Throne he must earn the Iron Throne. He landed his men at Eastwatch-by-the-Sea and rode them north of the Wall.
Melisandre tried to seduce Jon the way she seduced Stannis. He turned her down because he still loves Ygritte, and is still grieving for her. I’m sure he thinks Melisandre is beautiful, but he has no romantic feelings for her. She and Jon shared a friendly conversation after she resurrected him.
Nah. Melisandre tried to seduce Jon the way she seduced Stannis. He turned her down because he still loves Ygritte, and is still grieving for her. I’m sure he thinks Melisandre is beautiful, but he has no romantic feelings for her.
Although he believed he was about to bed her, Melisandre actually seduced Gendry in order to sap him of his blood. The fact that this is Gendry’s first sexual experience probably doesn’t bode well for the young man. After all, his first sexual experience ended with a forced blood donation.

We will meet again.” Those eyes sealed shut forever belong to the Night King. When Melisandre asked Arya what we say to the god of Death, and Arya answered with the words her teacher Syrio Forel taught her—“not today”—they were speaking again of the Night King. … She can finally die.
“I see a darkness in you,” Melisandre tells Arya. “And in that darkness, eyes staring back at me: brown eyes, blue eyes, green eyes. Eyes you’ll shut forever. We will meet again.”
What if — bear with me here — Melisandre is actually an undead wight, brought back from the dead like Beric Dondarrion and Jon Snow after her? Wooh boy. Strap in. Wights are servants of the White Walkers, zombies raised to do their bidding.
Arya didn’t meet Melisandre in the books. The show merged two characters, Melisandre and the Ghost of High Heart, the witch who was the closest friend of Jenny of Oldstones.
After the failed parley between Stannis and Renly, Melisandre is revealed to be pregnant. She gives birth to a Shadow in a cave close to Renly’s encampment while Ser Davos Seaworth watches in horror. The creature infiltrates Renly’s camp and kills him in front of Catelyn Stark and Brienne.
