Littlefinger Dies in the Finale – Game of Thrones Theories

Littlefinger has done a lot of damage to the Stark family. He betrayed Ned Stark which ultimately led to his execution and misused Catelyn Stark’s trust in him. Littlefinger sided with the Lannisters in the war of five kingdoms. He sold off Sansa Stark to the Boltons knowing the sadistic nature of Ramsay Bolton. And now he is playing off Sansa Stark and Arya Stark against each other. But he is probably in a surprise. What if Littlefinger dies in the Season Finale? Let’s analyze how that can be a possibility.



What is Littlefinger Up To?

Littlefinger sees Arya Stark and Sansa Stark’s relationship as a threat. He sees an opening to plant the seeds of mistrust when Arya duels with Brienne in Spoils of War. Littlefinger senses that he can exploit Sansa’s willingness to rule the north as a sign of betrayal towards Jon Snow for Arya. Arya watches as Sansa politely declined House Stark’s bannermen calls for her to supplant Jon Snow as leader of the North. Arya, later on, says to Sansa that she knows Sansa wants to be the queen, “You’re thinking it right now.¬†You don’t want to be. But the thought just won’t go away.”

Later on, Littlefinger leads Arya to a letter written by Sansa in Season 1 to Robb asking him to express fealty to Joffrey. Arya confronts Sansa with that letter saying that she betrayed her family for her beloved Joffrey. Sansa tries to defend herself but Arya isn’t satisfied. Then, Sansa goes to Littlefinger expressing concerns about that letter coming out in public and how Arya can be dangerous. Littlefinger suggests that Brienne of Tarth can intervene if Arya poses any threat to Sansa. But Sansa ships Brienne and Podrick to King’s Landing to represent her at a G8 type summit being hosted by Cersei.

Sansa also finds Arya’s bag of faces and asks Arya about them. Arya scares Sansa by pointing the catspaw dagger at her and says to her that she can become Sansa Stark if she wishes to be. She also misrepresents some facts there especially of wearing pretty dresses if she wears Sansa’s face and also Sansa being all lady like when Ned Stark was being executed.



Littlefinger Dies in the Finale – A Possible Scenario

I think Arya and Sansa are playing a game the way Littlefinger plays other people. They are making Littlefinger believe that his plan of tearing the two sisters apart is working but in reality, there are plenty of clues now from Arya’s and Sansa’s conversation that indicate that this is all a ruse to turn the tables on Littlefinger in his style.

We also have a greenseer¬†Brandon Stark who knows everything. I think Brandon Stark most likely has told Sansa already about Littlefinger’s betrayal towards Stark’s family. Sansa is just plotting a revenge by making Littlefinger think that his plan is working.

Also, we still have to hear the famous dialogue yet from Sansa, “When the snows fall and the white winds blow, the lone wolf dies but the pack survives.”

Maybe she is gonna say this to Littlefinger when he is all caught up in his lies in front of all Stark House Bannermen. We will most likely say goodbye to Littlefinger in the season’s finale. Hence, why I think Littlefinger dies.
