Game of Thrones: Davos confronts Melisandre

Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 10 The Winds of Winter

At Winterfell, as Jon and Melisandre are talking, Davos enters and confronts her with the burned stag figurine. Melisandre admits burning Shireen alive, and Davos then requests permission from Jon to punish Melisandre for her crimes but the red priestess counters that she can be useful in the coming war against the dead. Jon instead exiles Melisandre from the North, with both Davos and him threatening to execute her if she ever returns to the North again.

JON: What is that?
DAVOS: Tell him. Tell him who it belonged to.
MELISANDRE: The Princess Shireen.
DAVOS: Tell him what you did to her. Tell him!
MELISANDRE: We burned her at the stake.
MELISANDRE: The army was trapped. The horses were dying. It was the only way.
DAVOS: You burned a little girl alive!
MELISANDRE: I only do what my Lord commands.
DAVOS: If he commands you to burn children, your Lord is evil.
MELISANDRE: We are standing here because of him. Jon Snow is alive because the Lord willed it.
DAVOS: I loved that girl like she was my own. She was good. She was kind. And you killed her!
MELISANDRE: So did her father. So did her mother. Her own blood knew it was the only way.
DAVOS: The only way for what? They all died anyway. You told everyone Stannis was the one. You had him believing it, all of them fooled. And you lied.
MELISANDRE: I didn’t lie. I was wrong.
DAVOS: Aye, you were wrong. How many died because you were wrong?






DAVOS: I ask your leave to execute this woman for murder. She admits to the crime.
JON: Do you have anything to say for yourself?
MELISANDRE: I’ve been ready to die for many years. If the Lord was done with me, so be it, but he’s not. You’ve seen the Night King, Jon Snow. You know the great war is still to come. You know the army of the dead will be upon us soon. And you know I can help you win that war.
JON: Ride south today. If you return to the North, I’ll have you hanged as a murderer.
DAVOS: If you ever come back this way, I will execute you myself.
