Seth Meyers was kind to invite Jon Snow to a dinner party and give him some tips on social etiquette. If Meyers thought Snow was awkward, he’s really going to have his hands full with the Red Woman, Lady Melisandre, at a baby shower he’s thrown for his wife Alexi.

Baby showers are a celebration, but Melisandre (Carice van Houten) brings the doom and gloom. In the below clip, the guests go around in a circle with each woman sharing an inspirational quote about motherhood. Melisandre chimes in with this quip, “Clutch your child close to your breast, woman, for the night is dark and full of terrors.”

We’re not sure if that’s a quote or Melisandre’s own views (she may not get the point of the exercise). It’s not terrible advice for her to say to watch over your child, but the delivery might be a little alarming for a mother-to-be.

It’s not uncommon for a shower to turn to relationship talk. Melisandre indulges in some gossip, admitting she does fancy someone from “work,” and that someone is Jon Snow (Kit Harington). She points out there may be a kink in their relationship because he may or may not be dead.
