|Melisandre, by ~cabins via deviantART|
This illustration is one of the artist's most impressive, in my opinion. I love the lines and the non-traditional pose; most artists depict her holding fire to the front or sides, but behind her is not a position I often see. It's done so gracefully here, and yet there is still a real aura of power. Very nice.
This chapter, Davos is finally able to set his mind at rest concerning the safety of "the boy" Edric Storm. After hearing the news that Joffrey is dead, he manages to get enough of the "King's Men" together to spirit the boy away from the castle, because he knows that now Stannis is bound to believe Melisandre's prophecies.
Luckily Davos was right when he theorized that threats against Melisandre's life would definitely be on her radar, and that the key to successfully saving Edric was to keep her out of the plan altogether. She didn't see this coming, and Stannis is SUPER pissed, calling it treason and ready to execute him right then and there.
SO WHAT WILL HAPPEN???
