Carice Van Houten aka Melisandre of Game Of Thrones is all set to make a big comeback in Season 8. The red priestess was last seen in Season 7 when she urged Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) to summon Jon Snow (Kit Harington) to Dragonstone since he knows that the true threat facing the Seven Kingdoms is the Night King. What was interesting though was her last words to Lord Varys where her she says, “I will return, dear spider. One last time. I have to die in this strange country, just like you.” Melisandre's character has always been crucial to the story especially since she brought Jon Snow back to life.
