So how I wanted Game of Thrones to end, because, hey, it’s the unexpected. Everyone expects Jon and Daenerys to defeat all evil and ride off into the sunset on a unicorn in 80s montage fashion; but who would expect some scheming, seemingly no-body-from-nothin-lord to snag the Iron Throne with a little bird? Well, Petyr imagines himself on the throne, at least what he tells Sansa in season 6, but come on. Sansa would be front and center on that uncomfortable seat. A self indulgent doodle, this is, because I know The Pete Man is doomed…he has to be. Also, Sansa gets Ghost in this picture because Jon seems to ignore the poor baby through most of the season. Where Ghost? Dragons are too expensive, I guess.
King Petyr Baelish, first and last of his name: the king that never was.
So I was sad to see my favorite character go this season of Game of Thrones. I have plenty of opinions on how they handled it, haha. By no means do I believe he is innocent, but he was an excellent character that deserved more screen time and a more scheme-riddled plot to play with. But bravo to Aidan Gillen’s performance. As always he was amazing.
Tribute-doodle to my favorite creepy Game of Thrones duo. It’s ole blood-on-his-hands-corrupt Petyr Baelish manipulating Sansa with his words…but she’s wising up. I knoooow he’s gunna kick the Westerosi bucket (it’s inevitable), but I can’t help but know I’m gunna miss that chaos-ladder-climber dude. Every season I loved all of Baelish’s and Sansa’s scenes. They added so much drama and just a little bit (a lot) of creepy. But what would Game of Thrones be without it? Probably a lot less nerve-racking but…yah know…they the best.
I believe that Petyr deep down is this optimistic force that believes he can achieve love and that’s why he is going to fail, because he is going to get fucked by what/who he loves, likely paying with his life. Inside, he’s still that hurt teenager, and he never grew past that.
In another narrative, a different, even more hardened and cynical Petyr could choose his ambition over his affection, but definitely at the cost of his heart.
