Clarice van Houten, who plays Melisandre of Asshai, leaked the new intro on her Instagram, and speculations have already started.

“Interesting how the ice very obviously doesn’t overtake the castle and instead seems to go around it. Could be nothing, could be a clue.”

On being asked if she would change anything, she said,

“It is what it is, and so that’s what it should be. There’s nothing to say about whether I’d change it if I were in charge.”
