We've Got Big News Regarding Littlefinger In Season 7
Major Spoilers for season 7 below. Continue with caution
We all have mixed feelings about Littlefinger - there's no doubt that he's charming, but he's basically the cause of half of what goes wrong in the show.
Luckily for us, there's a possibility that Season 7 may be his last; a recent plot leak suggested that Petyr Baelish will be killed in Game of Thrones Season 7. The leak comes from website Watchers on the Wall, which is known to be pretty accurate when it comes to spoilers.
Since the supposed leak of this juicy tidbit, rumors have been circulating about who will be the one to bring about Baelish's ultimate demise.
As we witnessed in the newly released trailer, Jon Snow doesn't feel too fondly about Littlefinger, evidenced by his slamming him against the wall of the crypts. Some take this as a sign that Jon will kill Littlefinger; others believe it will be Sansa, as payback for all that he's done to her.
However, evidence seems to suggest that it will in fact be Arya who finishes him off.
We know that Arya is on her way to the North, and some believe that she will learn the truth about Baelish's betrayal of her father in Season 1. The leak even mentions that Sansa exposes Littlefinger's conniving ways and orders his execution, carried out by Arya.
Now knowing that Littlefinger is the cause of many of her family's misfortunes, what's to stop Arya from adding him to her infamous list?
Off-screen evidence suggests a successful assassination as well:
A recent photo on the cover of Entertainment Weekly shows Arya in her winter-ready gear, suggesting that she does make it to the North; what's more, it seems that she is holding Littlefinger's Valyrian steel dagger - last seen when Peter Baelish tried to kill Ned Stark back in Season 1.
Essentially, there would be no way for Arya to get her hands on this weapon if she didn't either kill Baelish or steal it from him; and we know she is no stranger to violence.
With Season 7 just around the corner, Arya may be adding more enemies to her list.
