Of the many deaths on Game of Thrones the fans were extremely satisfying, the assassination of Lord Petyr Baelish, aka Littlefinger, in the seventh season of Arya Stark was among the most memorable. While the fans rejoiced at how the double social climber got his talent, a recent resurfaced fan theory regarding the series' last season claiming that we may not have last seen of Littlefinger has hinted at some important moments in season 7, which could point to the return of Littlefinger.
The first episode of episode 7, "Spoils of War," proves that Bran Stark is finally experiencing Littlefinger's evil intentions. Bran recites the line "Chaos is a Ladder" to Petyr, a reference from his past. Many fans wondered why Littlefinger was not suspicious enough to do anything. Fast forward to the next episode "Eastwatch," in which a young woman in a gentle but extremely eerie whisper tells him, "Sorry, your time is up." Littlefinger gives her something that looks like an iron coin of the faceless. While this confused many viewers, the fact that he had been killed by Arya only two episodes later stopped our speculation there.
However, we should not have believed that Baelish could be so easily killed. The theory is that the person we saw dying in The Season 7 Finale in The Dragon and the Wolf was actually one of the Faceless Men disguised as Littlefinger.
Considering the fact that Littlefinger was completely obvious, the siblings Stark were obviously MrSilenceT turns against him in the episode and says that this could mean that it is not at all Baelisch. The author points out that when Littlefinger was close to death in the series, he knew what to do:
"Always calculate [d] and proper control, as you would expect from a man would plot without rest for 30 years, such a man will not be surprised when the end comes, but a faceless man playing the last moments of this man would think he was. "
That's right. Littlefinger suddenly fell to his knees as he realized that what was really happening was unexpected. But why would a faceless man die for him? This is less clear, but Littlefinger has previously stated that his grandfather came from Braavos. It could easily give more about his past and his family, of which the audience know nothing.
Although it is possible that this fan theory is just a theory, the redditor is a compelling argument for how this could be done. It is after all the last season of Game of Thrones ; Spectators should prepare for some wild turns when the series returns on April 1
