With just over two weeks to go until the Season 6 premiere of TV’s reigning Emmy-winning drama “Game of Thrones,” HBO has announced that the title of the highly anticipated episode will be “The Red Woman.” Hmm, is that a potential spoiler that refers to the Red priestess Melisandre (Carice van Houten), or is the Lord of Light toying with us?
Written by showrunners David Benioff & D. B. Weiss and directed by Jeremy Podeswa, the episode will air April 24 and is described simply as: “Jon Snow is dead. Daenerys meets a strong man. Cersei sees her daughter again.”
