Game Of Thrones is enormous in every aspect: the cast is tremendous, the budget is gigantic and the quantity of plot lines is immense. This justifies that it would be inconceivably hard to hold everything together and under control at all times. However, there are certain things that don’t make sense. Right from teleporting characters, to murders that no one thinks about, here are eight things from season six that are senseless.
8. Melisandre’s Glamor
Towards the end of the main episode of season six titled The Red Woman, Melisandre takes off her bejeweled necklace thereby revealing her true form: an amazingly old lady who has apparently lost all trust in the Lord of Light.
It’s a striking scene and should set up the forthcoming Jon Snow revival. However, it brings up a bundle of issues. The scene obviously suggests that Mel’s jewelry is the origin of her wonderful obscurity. Book fans will realize that it’s been hypothesized that her necklace is a magical knickknack which can be utilized to physically cover the appearance.
However, Melisandre has been already seen on the show stripped in a bathtub. Furthermore, she doesn’t look anything like what she looks like toward the end of The Red Woman. The truth of the matter is that none of the clarifications are especially convincing. It appears that the show-runners know about legitimate irregularities and have picked not to explicitly clarify it. Until it’s touched on again and affirmed by something in the show, it’s a little detail that doesn’t make sense.
7. The Teleporting Sand Snakes
It’s a well-known fact that the Sand Snakes’ story line from season five is viewed as one of the worst inclusions in the show’s history. It had been inadequately acted and included some flawed writing. It’s not astonishing that the show has chosen to write off that whole storyline for season six. However, even this has been somewhat cumbersome.
Towards the end of season five, we see the Sand Snakes on the port at Dorne having poisoned Myrcella Baratheon. Jaime and Myrcella bid an emotional farewell. It’s as simple as that. Furthermore, Trystane is on his way to King’s Landing. However, towards the beginning of season six; the Sand Snakes have mystically teleported onto Trystane’s boat, regardless of being abandoned. Furthermore, they severely kill Trystane. As one of the progressions that totally suspend the Dorne plot line, it went down in an outlandish way.
