Stannis Baratheon and Melisandre

  • Where we left off: First, Stannis's magic-obsessed mistress Melisandre told Gendry that Robert Baratheon was his father. Then she seduced him, tying him up and putting three leeches on him so that she could use his blood for a spell to do away with Robb Stark, Balon Greyjoy, and King Joffrey.
  • What's next: There's no telling whether Melisandre's spell had anything to do with the Red Wedding, but she did get her way as far as Robb's concerned, so there may just be something to that black magic of hers.
