New Theory Suggests Littlefinger Could Be Robin Arryn's Real Father

We can't count the number of GoT theories that are piling up in anticipation of season 7.  But this new one concerns a character you might not have paid close enough attention to: Robin Arryn, son of Lysa and, so we thought, Jon Arryn.  But could we be completely wrong about who his father is?

The Last Harpy explains in their new video.

We know from the books that Jon Arryn and Lysa, until Robin, were unable to conceive.  When the series starts, Jon Arryn has just died at an old age, meaning he would need to have been in his seventies when Robin was born.  Lysa, herself describes her late husband's seed as "old and weak", and all their babies had died in the past, meaning it may have been impossible for him to give her a child.  

Just look at Robin's hair; it's dark.  Jon Arryn was blonde, and as George RR Martin clearly likes to send messages through hair color (i.e. Cersei and Jaime's children), this could mean that Arryn is not Robin's father.

So then who could possibly be Robin's dad?  Littlefinger.

Lysa was madly in love with Petyr Baelish and had an unusually strong bond with Robin, one that she might not have if he were the child of a man she loathed.  Deep down, Lysa probably knew Baelish would never love her, so Robin was the only part of him she had.

Want another clue?  Look to what Lysa said to Littlefinger on the show at their wedding:

​"I want to share your bed tonight, my sweet.  I want us to make another child, a brother for Robert or a sweet little daughter"

What does "another child" mean?  Could this refer to Robin, a son she and Baelish already share?

Pay attention to another thing Lysa says in the same dialogue:

​"I must warn you, after all these years of silence and whisperings, I mean to scream when you love me."

This could potentially refer to an affair she and Littlefinger shared in the past and the whisperings surrounding Robin's birth.

Want the last part of the theory?  Go back to Robin's conception.  He was likely conceived in King's Landing, where Jon Arryn was serving as Hand of the King.  But who else was at King's Landing at the time?  Littlefinger.

So what do you think?  Could this theory be true, and if so, what does it mean for the series?

When Rachel is not talking about comedy or shamelessly singing Les Mis in the car, she's probably talking about comedy or singing Les Mis in the car because THAT'S ALL SHE DOES. Oh, and she really likes Game of Thrones, performing and writing sketches and her dog, Charlie
