Kinvara (high-ranking Red Priestess) was in only one scene in Season 6 ("The Door"). The scene was a discussion with Tyrion and Varys about how to calm the civil unrest in Meereen. After that, nothing. There was no more mention directly, or obliquely, of the Red Priestesses (other than Melisandre) in Season 6.

So, what is going on with the Red Priestesses of Volantis? Did the discussion with Varys and Tyrion mean anything? There is so much material to cover in so little time, that could not have been a no-op. So, why have that scene?

The scene from S06E08, No One, below shows that the plan did work. We see Tyrion and Varys walking through the markets and notice a Red Priestess with many gathered around her. Tyrion remarks...

Tyrion: I call that a successful gambit.

Varys: Would you?

Tyrion: Look around the city has come back to life.

Varys: You made a pact with fanatics...

Tyrion: I did. And it worked.

Varys: If you shaved you beard with a straight razor, you'd say the razor worked. That doesn't mean it won't cut your throat.

Tyrion: Spoken like a man who has never had to shave.

We will just have to see if the plans ends up costing him at some point...
