Littlefinger Death Scene Explained

Littlefinger aka Lord Petyr Baelish was perhaps one of the most cunning characters of Game of Thrones series. But he met his own fate in Game of Thrones Season 7 finale. Lord Baelish death scene has been explained in Game of Thrones behind the scenes video. 

Littlefinger Death Scene Explained

This Game of Thrones Littlefinger death scene video reveals how the scene was enacted and how the Game of Thrones cast felt about this scene. Aidan Gillen (Littlefinger) gave a spectacular performance.

Aidan Gillen felt pretty good about Lord Baelish death scene. Says Aidan, “Tables are very cleverly turned much to Littlefinger’s and we hope the audience’s surprise. Also nice to probably see Littlefinger really unnerved for once and really backed into a corner and rattled and wrong and sorry and dying.”

For Brandon Stark, it’s a very interesting moment. Isaac Hempstead Wright (Brandon Stark) felt excited about the scene. Isaac said, “this for bran is an interesting moment in time this is like something he’d go back to see you know a hundred years ago.”

This revelation that Littlefinger has betrayed her family was an eye opener for Sansa Stark. Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) thought that the trio, Sansa, Arya, and Littlefinger had a great scene. Says Sophie, “Bran brings the knowledge, Sansa’s the politician and Arya is the warrior.” 

Arya Stark perhaps enjoyed killing Littlefinger the most. In Maise Williams’s (Arya Stark) words, “eerie scene, because I was speaking to Aiden about it and he was like it’s a real shame because I always thought Littlefinger was a good person. And so I turned around and was like that’s why you play him so well because you don’t play him like he’s a bad character. You play him like every single one of his decisions is justified.” 

Jeremy Podeswa on Littlefinger Death Scene

Shooting Littlefinger’s death scene was one of the biggest moments of got 7×07 for Jeremy Podeswa, Director of the episode. Says Jeremy, “I think for Littlefinger because he’s the consummate player you don’t really expect him to ever get outplayed but he does get outplayed and that is like a shock. You could argue that if anybody deserved it, it’s him at this point.”

There are many complex characters on in Game of Thrones and you love them and you hate them. Littlefinger was one of those characters. Jeremy Podeswa did justice with Lord Baelish’ death scene.  

Talking more about the scene says Podeswa, “What I thought was so great about Aidan’s performance is that he really showed a kind of vulnerability and humanity in that last moment before he died. I think he really felt that he really loved Sansa and it’s kind of horrible when he gets killed.”

We will definitely miss Petyr Baelish in Game of Thrones Season 8. Adieu, Littlefinger aka Petry Baelish.

What Did Arya Stark Find In The Letter: ‘Eastwatch’

The question on everyone’s mind after watching today’s episode ‘Eastwatch’ is that what did Arya Stark find in the letter in Littlefinger’s room.

The Letter That Arya Stark Found in Littlefinger’s Room

Littlefinger Is Playing The Stark Sisters

Littlefinger AKA Petyr Baelish doesn’t want the sisterly bond between Arya and Sansa to become tighter. He has conspired all these years to get the Iron Throne. Baelish is not gonna let this relationship between Sansa and Arya to come in the way of his plans. He saw an opportunity on Sansa’s side of the relationship during the duel between Arya and Brienne in the previous episode. Sansa disapproves of Arya of being not a Lady like her. She senses that Arya can be dangerous. When she sees Arya’s swordswomanship she is a bit stunned. Littlefinger has strategically decided to take advantage of it.

He wants to give Arya a reason to unleash her anger at Sansa. He lures Arya to spy on him and sets everything up, including talking to an orderly girl in Winterfell, having a discussion with Maester Wolkon and one of the Stark bannerman, and when the Maester comes to deliver the letter in question he says, “Lady Stark thanks you for your service“. Arya breaks into Littlefinger’s room and finds that letter which has Sansa’s signature on it. He knows that when Sansa sees the dangerous and angry side of Arya she is gonna turn towards Littlefinger for comfort. Sansa knows that Jon Snow will also support Arya because of a strong bond between them. So who is gonna support Sansa? Of course, Littlefinger AKA Baelish.

What Did Arya Stark Find In The Letter

This is the same letter that Cersei made Sansa write to Robb Stark in Season 1. Cersei had just captured Ned Stark and she tries to manipulate Sansa to ask her brother, Robb Stark, to come to King’s Landing and swear his fealty to Joffrey Baratheon. Sansa, begrudgingly and out of fear for her life, agrees to write that letter.

Sansa Writing A Letter to Robb Stark in Game of Thrones Season 1. Others present are Cersei, Littlefinger, Varys, and Maester Pycelle.

Littlefinger knows about the letter as he was right there when this happened. In fact, he advocates on behalf of Sansa and advises Cersei to give Sansa a chance to prove her loyalty. Cersei, upon Littlefinger’s advice, asks Sansa to pen that letter and send a raven to Robb Stark. That answers our question, “What did Arya Stark find in the letter in Littlefinger’s room?”

Littlefinger knows that Maester Luwin kept a copy of all the letters that came in. We hear Arya’s voice in the preview of the next episode, “You’re scared, aren’t you? What are you scared of?“. We would have to wait to see what happens in the next episode. Does Arya take Littlefinger’s bait and decide that Sansa is the enemy? That Sansa Stark actually asked Robb to bend the knee to Joffrey, the murderer of Ned Stark? We would have to wait for that until next week.
