ok. bran clearly has looked into LF's past actions and potentially will look more into what he has done/is doing. our boi is screwed. so, if you were writing from this point forward, what would you do with LF's story?
I would start writing him as an actual character again who remembers all the resources he still has at his disposal and who strategically shuffles those around to keep himself afloat. It’s completely unnatural for him to just sit around doing nothing but waiting for a death sentence telegraphed from miles away.
Sansa keeps going on about the lack of food and pretends she doesn’t need him anymore, so maybe start there. I got an anon last week, I think, and they were saying LF should leave and I was like “but where?” but you know, what? You were right, anon. I changed my mind. Leave potential-trouble Lord Royce & some of the Vale soldiers stationed in Winterfell as a sign of “good faith”, pull the rest, temporarily relocate to the Vale, and solidify control there. This provides distance from tree boy and dagger girl - a stable and relatively safe position to negotiate and leverage resources (food, weapons, manpower, etc) from. He has significant wealth and unrivaled financial wizardry, too, so reaching out to the Iron Bank to fuck up Cersei’s plans and divert “war funding” would be a possibility, too. This could also be “offered” as a sort of “assistance” to the Starks (maybe Dany too). Then - once honorable-to-a-fault Jon agrees to safeguard his guest right - he can return to Winterfell w/ stock and men and the backing of the Iron Bank just before the corpse army begins its assault. if he made himself useful this way, no amount of greenseeing and sword-whooshing could touch him since collective survival would trump personal revenge. for a while, anyway.
Or sth like that.
Anything would be better than this static, pointless waiting around to be offed in the finale scenario. At this point the show seems to have completely forgotten who this guy really is and how and why he’s survived this long.
p.s. this also means that they can’t kill the real Petyr Baelish since he has apparently left the building this season and left this body double behind, the smart motherfucker.
so joke’s on you, suckers!
