Game of Thrones season 7 put out its most frantic episode to date. Season 7 episode 5, “Eastwatch,” might not have wielded a fire-breathing dragon, but it did raise a lot of unanswered questions. Tensions were high when Arya Stark was inquisitive of Littlefinger’s activities. Did she spy on him, or was she spied on? Find out all about the note that Arya stole from Littlefinger.
Though fighting for revenge, not the Iron Throne, Arya Stark is a major player in the game, but is she slipping? Lord Baelish (Littlefinger) was always a person of interest, and it could be possible that he is a step ahead of the little Stark. His games and plots have destroyed the biggest players, and though it seemed like the Stark children had the better of him, things might not be as they seem. With all that being said, the Littlefinger’s fate might be decided because of a small note. Read on to know all about what the scroll said, and what it could mean.
In GoT season 7 episode 5, Arya Stark’s doubts about Sansa and Littlefinger were heightened. She is on a mission, and for that, she decides play a little hide and seek with Littlefinger. Standing behind the walls and pillars of Winterfell, Arya makes sure she is unseen and unheard as she observes Littlefinger when he meets what looks like a chambermaid, and hands her something. She then tracks him down, and sees him receiving a small note from another servent, who confirms to him that it was the only copy in Winterfell.
Arya proceeds to follows Littlefinger to his chamber, where she sees him locking his door after stashing the note somewhere inside. As skillful as Arya has become, she easily unlocks the door, and searches his chamber until she finds the note under his bed, hidden inside a small rip in the mattress (or was it planted there waiting for her?).
All her doubts about Sansa are slowly proving to be true when Arya reads Littlefinger’s note:
“Robb, I write to you with a heavy heart. Our good king Robert is dead, killed from wounds he took in a boar hunt. Father has been charged with treason. He conspired with Robert’s brothers against my beloved Joffrey and tried to steal his throne. The Lannisters are treating me very well and provide me with every comfort. I beg you: come to King’s Landing, swear fealty to King Joffrey and prevent any strife between the great houses of Lannister and Stark.”
Littlefinger, as conniving as ever, tests the bond between the Stark sisters and is working his evil magic to make sure that Arya does not know that Sansa wrote the note under pressure, and the words were actually Cersei’s. Fans might remember that Robb did not believe those were Sansa’s words when he received the note. Armed with the note, Arya is not likely to believe Sansa’s side of the story, which is what Littlefinger wanted all along.
Does this mean that the hunter is being hunted? Or simply that Littlefinger is about to face a move he did not expect? Watch Game of Thrones season 7 Sundays at 9:00 p.m. EST on HBO to find out.
