    weren't there suggestions/inferrences that he and Melisandre were engaging in some fun in the sack?

    I don't know about his wife, but his daughter will be making an appearance at some point this season.

      and given his nature, it would be abhorrent to him to go extra-marital, I would think.

      Because he does things from a character's "point of view", you know what the character knows, or suspects, or just believes.

      And people miss these things.  Like what Renly likes (liked?) to do with his free time.  Obvious if you read carefully.  But a lot of people missed the hints.

      Stannis was absolutely getting it on with the Red Woman in the books. Not in some soap-opera "affair" way, but in a  dark blood-magic way. She was using his kingly "essence" to create her evil shadow children. Not hard to imagine how she "collected" that essence.

      The repeated process sapped Stannis of his strength and basically put him out of commission for long periods, bedridden in his chambers. His fires did indeed "burn low," as she said on TV.

      That the rigid, upright Stannis succumbs to her allure is a testament to her power.

      ... fidelity to George Martin and the books.

      From reading the books, I felt no doubt that Stannis and Melisandre the Red were sacking, so to speak. It was not a feature to be celebrated, but then she was the Red woman and he, well, he used to be an honorable man.

      2014 IS COMING. Build up the Senate. Win back the House : 17 seats. Plus!
