In the process of making one of the most popular Melisandre theories come true, the Red Priestess said a lot of fancy Valyrian things, cut Jon’s hair (a little inside joke at the fans there, maybe), and then simply said, “Please.” Turns out, that’s all the gods needed to hear.
Maybe Melisandre’s humility played into the awakening of the Lord Commander. And just maybe the combination of Davos, the Crows at the door, the Wildling army, Ghost, and the dire situation, in general, was the trick to bring Jon Snow back. One of the popular Melisandre/Jon Snow theories is that Snow is the returned Azor Ahai, the Champion of the Liight and the only one who can defeat the Night’s King and the undead frozen army beyond the Wall. If so, good job, lady! If not, fans are still happy that Kit Harrington is back and that Melisandre has stopped burning children at the stake. For now.
