In Game of Thrones: Mockingbird, Melissandre took a bath without her necklace while talking to queen Selyse. It is thought that by removing the necklace reveals her aged body, she should have turned old in that scene, but has not changed at all. However, we do not know the extent of her powers with or without the necklace. The power of the necklace may be to assist her by not expending energy to appear young; removing it and not choosing to expend energy - she then reverts to her natural appearance. See more »

Best "First episode" of any season
25 April 2016 | by pratapmayankSee all my reviews

Usually Game of Thrones start in first gear and usually pick up speed. But in season 6, they directly started in fourth gear. They started with all guns blazing bang bang. The episode touched upon almost all the sub-plots.

The best moment for was when Cersei broke down in front of Jamie (not in a sadistic manner). In that moment a character as strong as Cersei started believing in prophecies. This showed her humane side. Because like all of us she also start believing in prophecies, Gods and monsters in our darkest times. Couldn't have asked for a better start of the show!!
