This Insane 'Game Of Thrones' Theory About Littlefinger Could Change Everything


It may be the "Game of Thrones" offseason as far as HBO is concerned, but we know better, right?

Any "GoT" fan worth their salt knows the theories surrounding season seven of everyone's favorite show are more rampant than ever at the moment, and this latest one concerning the most dangerous man in Westeros could be a major bombshell.

Last we saw Petyr "Littlefinger" Baelish he was sitting in a hall in Winterfell, scowling at the new King in the North, Jon Snow, but according to Reddit user da_k1ngslaya -- um, hell yes -- Littlefinger is about to play a major part in the episodes to come.

da_k1ngslaya's theory holds Littlefinger manufactured the widely-believed fact Lyanna Stark, Jon Snow's mother, was kidnapped and raped by Rhaegar Targaryen, which led to Robert's rebellion and plunged the Seven Kingdom's into chaos.

We know how much Littlefinger loves chaos, right?

da_k1ngslaya thinks Littefinger's alleged lie about Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen, which has been the basis for pretty much the entire "Game of Thrones" storyline, will be exposed in one of Bran Stark's visions.

We already know from season six just how important, and truthful, Bran's visions are.

There are those on Reddit who have pointed out Littlefinger would've been too young to conceive such a masterful plan and foresee Robert's rebellion, but it's possible he didn't know his lie would even lead to Robert's rebellion.

Littlefinger wasn't a great warrior and he didn't come from nobility, so it's more than possible he concocted this plan because the love he felt as a young boy wasn't being returned, and he just wanted to destroy the joy of others and see people act on impulse.

Also, bear in mind the moment in season five when Sansa Stark and Littlefinger are in the crypts at Winterfell, and Littlefinger says nothing to confirm Sansa's belief Lyanna was kidnapped and raped by Rhaegar.

Either way, we're sure to see all of this play out over the final two seasons of "Game of Thrones," and we'll know once and for all who the true ruler of the Iron Throne is.
