One thing to learn from Game Of Thrones is that no one can be trusted. So far, we’ve lost many noble, loyal, kind-hearted characters, which leads to the conclusion that in order to survive in the Game Of Thrones, you’ve got to be cunning, and at least more ruthless than Starks tend to be. So far, Littlefinger has always been one step ahead of everyone else, making the right alliances, and betraying them at just the right moment. The slick, scheming master manipulator has had his fingers in every murderous plot and dastardly betrayal on Game of Thrones, from Ned Stark’s tragic death to Sansa’s brutal marriage to Ramsay Bolton. Sansa told Jon, “Only a fool would trust Littlefinger.” First, let us take a look at some reasons why the death of Petyr Baelish is inevitable in Game Of Thrones Season 7.
Why Littlefinger Deserves To Die: Death of Petyr Baelish
- Littlefinger will do anything to increase his power. This is going to be the main reason behind Peter Baelish’s death in Game of Thrones.
- He’s lied, cheated, and betrayed just about every single person he’s interacted with, and he has racked up quite a few enemies.
- Let’s not forget that Littlefinger was instrumental in Ned Stark’s beheading. Littlefinger told Ned Stark, Hand of the King, that the City Watch would support him when he confronted Cersei Lannister about her illegitimate children. Instead, the guards turned against him and Littlefinger himself puts a dagger to Ned’s throat, saying, “I warned you not to trust me.”
- Lysa Arryn received the worst of Littlefinger’s manipulations. She was so in love with him that she poisoned her own husband, then wrote the letter that blamed the Lannisters for his death. That set into motion Ned Stark leaving Winterfell and all of the tragedy that followed.
- He told Cat that the dagger used in the attempt on Bran’s life was Tyrion’s, a claim that helped start the war.
- Littlefinger has been playing the Lannisters against the Northerners since Season 4, when he helped frame Sansa and Tyrion for Joffrey’s murder, promising Cersei that he would find and kill Sansa.
- Poor Robin Arryn is really not cut out for scheming and plotting. He just wants to play with his new pet bird. Littlefinger does his thing and gets his stepson to give him control of the Knight of the Vale.
- His manipulations have led to more strife for the Starks than they know, and it’s about time to put an end to his influence.
- It’s super creepy how Littlefinger can profess his undying love for Catelyn one minute, and then kiss her young daughter the next.
- He has absolutely zero redeeming qualities, and even more, he doesn’t believe he needs any.
How Littlefinger Will Die: Death of Petyr Baelish
Now let us take a look at this theory as to how Littlefinger will die in GOT. Here is how the death of Petyr Baelish might go down. There are two main ways in which he can be killed.

- Littlefinger threatens to expose Sansa with a letter she wrote to her brother Rob while she was shacked up with the Lannisters, which would play her off against Arya. But no one comes between Stark siblings and Sansa exposes his blackmail with the help of Bran. Arya then executes him causing Peter Baelish’s death.
- Another possibility is that he somehow convinces Sansa to marry him. On the day they’re getting engaged, Arya and Bran tell Sansa the truth. This also leads to Sansa confessing how Petyr killed Lysa Arryn and she orders his execution. As soon as Littlefinger realizes that he is in trouble, he tries to kill Sansa. That is when Arya stabs him with his own dagger causing the death of Petyr Baelish.
