"She reminded me of the bathtub scene from The Shining"  Yep. Surprised there aren't any "closing time at the bar" jokes here.

That's funny. I wonder why they waited till now to reveal this.

A lot of people have said she reminds them of Gollum. 

More on Edd, Davos, and the plan to avenge Jon Snow:

I'm still wondering why they waited until now to do the Melisandre reveal. 

Also, Thoros of Myr didn't need no King's blood when resurrecting Beric Dondarrion.

Thanks you! I feel like everyone keeps forgetting about this.

There's a very good reason for the need for King's blood. It's when a price must be paid.

When Mel practices her magic, she is asking for something from R'hllor. She must pay for this. That price is King's blood. That's the thing that she hasn't realised yet. She believes she's doing his bidding but she's not, she's getting it wrong. She's asking him to work for her while she believes he's working through her. That distinction is crucial. That distinction is what Thoros realised.

When Thoros first brought back Beric, he didn't intend it. He went through the motions and said the words and was as surprised (more so) as anybody else at what happened. That was R'hllor working through Thoros. He used Thoros as a vessel to do his bidding. There was no price for Thoros to pay.

Mel will pray for Jon. She will say the words, as she should do. She will be as surprised as Thoros was when they bring Jon back and, possibly for the first time, she will be doing R'hllor's work. Her faith renewed. No price to pay.
