What Game Of Thrones' Littlefinger Is Planning With That Note

Courtesy HBOWe can't promise Sansa Arya or Bran will be there but you'll be able to live out your own Stark fantasies at Castle Ward

- Preston Wurtz (@PrestonWurtz)Am I the only one who realized the note Arya found was the letter Sansa wrote in season 1 about Ned being a traitor? Our good king Robert is dead, killed from wounds he took in a boar hunt. Long story short, the king died, Joffrey took over, and Ned was arrested.

Near the end of Sunday night's episode of Game of Thrones, scheming Littlefinger flexed his shadiness once more by leading Arya on a wild goose chase he's presumably hoping will drive a wedge between the Stark sisters. Robb Stark did eventually see this letter himself, but Maester Luwin told Robb that it was Cersei's words with Sansa's writing. Speaking by phone from Dublin, he discussed Littlefinger's plans for the Starks and why his interest in Sansa might not be as creepy as you think. The youngest Stark sister, who had correctly assumed that Littlefinger is the one whispering dreams of ruling the North and getting rid of Jon in Sansa's ear, decides to follow Lord Baelish.

Shakman says that in the episode, which featured Arya in a friendly sparring contest with warrior Brienne of Tarth, there were hints of Sansa and Arya realizing what the other has endured since we last saw them.

It was another master stroke by Baelish.

Thanks to the perpetually skeevy Littlefinger, the Stark sisters have managed to alienate each other rather than becoming allies. He doesn't attack the pack, he gets the pack to turn on themselves. It's opportunistic. He couldn't have foretold that Arya was going to show up again, and that Bran was going to show up again.

Littlefinger is arguably the most intrigiung partner in Game of Thrones, even more so than "The Spider", Varys. For Arya, it was a quest for survival on her own, during which time she became a pretty deft swordswoman. "One of two things will happen". Littlefinger can see this and is choosing to exploit it by having Arya find that scroll.

Earlier in the episode, Arya questions Sansa's motives for hearing out the neighboring houses of Winterfell, who criticize Jon Snow for meeting with Daenerys.

The smartphone is likely to sport a 12-megapixel dual camera setup on the rear and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. It will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core processor coupled with Adreno 540 GPU and 6GB of RAM.

The second possibility though is far more enticing. He's playing Arya Stark like a fiddle. Whoever could get possession of her could rule the North.

Arya didn't attempt to stand in the shadows, she stood in the light, right in his peripheral vision. You don't have to be trained at the House of Black and White to know how to hide in the dark.

Now reunited with her family, Arya Stark has been catching up on everything she's missed over the past few years.

With her trap laid, he then did exactly what she expected, which is try to come between her and her family. She flexed her fighting prowess in the yard with Brienne, but Arya has not yet revealed to anyone in Winterfell that she can change faces.

Littlefinger's latest plan is as good as any he has ever devised, but unfortunately for him it won't work on someone trained to identify liars.

'On the Sansa end of the relationship, he's seen the opening and now all he needs to do is give Arya a cause to display real rage towards Sansa. But they haven't acted together since the very first season, so when they finally shared a scene in "The Spoils of War," it was a nerve-racking experience, says episode director Matt Shakman.
