Game of Thrones' popularity-and its fervent, ever-expanding fanbase-just continues to grow.
Remember that double-take Littlefinger did the other week when Maester Wolken said Luwin kept copies of everything that got sent to Winterfell? But what if it's leading to a heartbreaking ending for Arya and Sansa?
But could he just be throwing us another red herring?
Well, Reddit user squirrelwoman has a theory.
"If Jon takes the North/Vale army to fight the Night King, he will ruin the checkmate that Littlefinger has spent years setting up. using that same army to install Sansa as his puppet on the Iron Throne once the Cersei/Daenerys war leaves his enemies too weakened to resist him".
Gillen also explained how Littlefinger is more of a "mentor" to Sansa rather than somebody who has a genuine affection for her, "schooling Sansa in the ways of manipulation, the ways to play the game, or the ways to survive".
At least we, kind of, know what Varys is up to know as he appears to have sided with Daenerys Targaryen. Adding the North to his pile is his next step, and while he seems to be sitting around Winterfell twiddling his thumbs, he's actually positioned exactly where he wants to be, with a fantastic excuse for staying out of the fiery bloodbath to the south. It would be sweet justice immortalised in a thousand songs.
Now they're technically at the command of the King in the North though.

"Arya is very used to being more clever and more stealthy, and smarter than any of the people she's up against, but she hasn't dealt with Littlefinger for a while". Can Bran point out Littlefinger's guilty of betraying their father and setting him up to be beheaded? Sansa's running the place, Bran's communicating with trees.
Amongst all of the chaos however is of course the sneaky, political movements that take place and nobody's more comfortable in those surroundings than Petyr "Littlefinger" Baelish; a man who's now aligned to the Stark family.
As I write this, I'm mentally prepared for an angry mob outside my front door.
"And now Arya shows up". But for all of her changes, she ultimately left the Faceless Men because she is Arya Stark of Winterfell.
Of course, it's possible that this won't lead to the self-destruction of Arya. No one would not have announced to her foe, before she killed him, that she was Arya Stark and wanted him to know that. Arya's never understood nor respected Sansa's ambitions to become a princess and, now, a political ruler. And if Sansa finds out, they'd be even madder at each other.
So he's trying to turn her against her family to win her affections. He may be the reason Sansa was so badly abused, he's the source of much of her misery and trauma, but he still came at her request. Sansa's alarm bells went off immediately.
Arya and Sansa Stark are finally reunited for the first time since Game of Thrones Season 1. Meanwhile, Sansa fearfully asks her about her list, but we haven't really seen anyone try to talk her out of her mission for revenge.
