There’s not much time for parenting when you’re playing the game of thrones in Westeros. Where does nurturing end and the thirsty quest for power begin? For Melisandre (Carice van Houten), there’s not much nurturing to be gleaned. In fact, the Red Priestess doesn’t give a shit about children. (Isn’t that right, Shireen?)
Watch as Melisandre from Game of Thrones makes quite an impression at Seth Meyers’s baby shower, where she offers some rather grim words of advice — such as, “Clutch your child close to your breast, woman. For the night is dark and full of terrors.” Awkward.
May your child be #blessed by the Lord of Light, Seth.
