On Game of Thrones, people refer to Melisandre as the Red Woman due to her red hair and clothing and bloodthirsty means of acquiring power. She'll stop at nothing to advance herself and, for the moment, the cause of the true king Stannis Baratheon.
She and late night talk show host Seth Meyers went to college together. So when Seth and his wife held a baby shower, Seth invited Melisandre.
Melisandre understands how to dominate people. But as you can see from this sketch from Late Night with Seth Meyers, she's less skilled at small talk with strangers. Well, it's that or the other guests can't understand the terrors of the night.
