Seth Meyers Learned the Hard Way Never to Invite Melisandre to a Baby Shower

"Clutch your child close to your breast, woman, for the night is dark and full of terrors."

You would think that after Jon Snow totally ruined Seth Meyers' dinner party, the comedian would know better than to invite gloomy Game of Thrones characters to social events. But on last night's show, he brought an even darker character, Melisandre, to a baby shower, and let's just say she did not lighten the mood. 

"Clutch your child close to your breast, woman, for the night is dark and full of terrors," she said, by way of parenting advice. Let's not even get into her present. 

What's next? Cersei at a Christmas party? Daenerys Targaryen for a day at the beach?
