We all be aware that when it comes to Game of Thrones, Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish is either successful to die or end up on the throne. When it comes to that conniving, backstabbing, creepy-uncle-looking motherf*cker, there is no midst ground.
After successfully starting a civil war by conspiring to kill the Agency of the King, passing false information to Catelyn Stark, and then betraying Ned Open, Littlefinger has continued to sneakily leave destruction in his path — he collaboratively ices King Joffrey while simultaneously framing Tyrion, shoves his own chain out of a sky door, and then essentially forces Sansa Stark into marrying an callous, abusive rapist. When it’s all said and done, the Seven Kingdoms wish be much better all around if somebody just offed the guy — and boy, are we in luck!
We’re banking on a unreservedly different Stark eventually slaying Littlefinger.
At the end of season six, the Starks participate in finally begun putting back the pieces of their family’s rattled remains; Jon and Sansa are reunited and attempting to take back the north. They’ve mislaid two brothers and have no idea that their other two siblings (or, in Jon’s what really happened, cousins) are still alive. Then, Littlefinger manages to squirm his way stand behind into the picture, providing the necessary force for Jon’s army to win the Battle of the Bastards in an undertaking to win Sansa’s love. (Spoiler alert, Petyr: you’re creepy and manipulative, and be in a classing your crush to her dead mom isn’t a good way to hit on her.)
Not only does Littlefinger path Sansa romantically for what feels like the millionth time, but he also ventures to turn her against Jon. At the end of the episode, the two exchange a strange look that can either be threw as Sansa conspiring with Littlefinger or fearing and despising him. Per usual, we’ll father to wait until season seven begins to find out.
Because of the peculiar glance exchanged between Sansa and her incessant, murderous suitor, some hounds have theorized that she will ultimately kill him as penance for the way he has doctored her and demolished her once happy family. However, we’re banking on a completely weird Stark eventually slaying Littlefinger: Arya.
We already know that Arya is imparting her way home, casually stopping in the Riverlands to enact some bloody furiously on Walder Frey and his ilk. We also know that The Hound is roaming the Riverlands, and he and Arya must history — remember that time when she left him for dead in the mid of the wilderness? And thanks to season seven promo teasers, we know that Arya is donning northern get-up glad rags that suit noble members of Stark house. With these two bits of experience, we theorize that Arya and The Hound will cross paths somewhere in the Riverlands — granting whether Arya will look like Arya is still a mystery, thanks to her training with the Faceless Men — and he will reveal in casual parley that Littlefinger is the one who betrayed Ned Stark to King Joffrey way back in spice one. Arya will either check The Hound off her list for good or exhort peace with him and part ways.
Armed with the new knowledge that Littlefinger is to condemn for her family’s misfortunes, Arya will return to Winterfell and find him there, quite still putting the moves on her older sister. Because she’s no stranger to insane revenge, she will put an end to him and his creepy, fiendish ways. Voila! That’s some just right Stark justice, if you ask us. There are other fans who believe that Arya wishes eventually murder Petyr Baelish, too; there are even entire videos yielded to the idea on YouTube. What’s up for debate is the when and how, but in our opinion the Riverlands timeline this upcoming time makes all too much sense.
Of course, given the show’s history, then the bad guys win — and if Sansa and Littlefinger are indeed conspiring against Jon in some way, this prcis could end badly for either Arya or Sansa, depending on who has the upper boost. Guess we’ll have to find out when the next chapter of their epic unfolds!
