Littlefinger's Stark Obsession Explained | ScreenRant
Ive just been thinking, does LF want people to find out about Sansa? to whomever posthaste, and then position himself as her trusted counselor to help her navigate court . For that to work, he needs a positive relationship. While the other odd-couples I mentioned are often played for laughs, the Littlefinger/Sansa relationship can be downright squirm-inducing. Littlefinger and Sansa do not see each other until the day of Joffrey's Sansa is now using the advice from Cersei which I adressed above;.
On HBO, Baelish is by turns peevish, impulsive to the point of recklessnessand transparent. Sansa confronted Littlefinger over his heartless sale of her to Ramsay Bolton, just about the most evil character in Westeros this side of Joffrey. Martin put on the page. Littlefinger never sent Sansa to marry Ramsay in the books.
At the end of A Dance With Dragons, Jeyne Poole, beaten, raped repeatedly, undoubtedly scarred for life in every possible way, is on the run with Theon.

He rightly knows that even though the Stark family is decimated and scattered across two continents, the name still commands the most respect out of any in the North. As we know, things have progressed very differently on HBO. In marrying the actual Sansa to Ramsay, he both gave the Bolton Bastard a legitimate claim to Winterfell and squandered whatever influence he had over Sansa.
Now, she hates her one-time savior, to the point that she nearly refused his help in retaking Winterfell—which would have denied him even a meager slice of that pie.
His only saving grace, as usual in the show, was luck. At one point, he even bought off a lord of the Vale to threaten him with violence in the most extreme way possible, forcing a counter-reaction from his enemies and buying him time and influence. Dude makes a winking reference to her incestual relationship with Jaime.
How stupid can you be? What does Baelish possibly have to gain from saying something so incendiary to Cersei Lannister?

Absolutely nothing, except the near-death experience that comes to him. What Baelish does in this scene is rash and reactive, and makes him look sneaky and untrustworthy, which is the exact opposite of his nature as depicted by Martin. For book loyalists, this departure from character was perhaps the most intellectually offensive scene in the entire series.
Petyr is an expert at playing Cersei, and to see him at her mercy is a total betrayal of character. And he makes another incest joke! None of this, needless to say, happens in the books.
Which brings us to the worst perversion of Littlefinger brought on by the show: He loved Catelyn Tully with all his heart. He almost died in a duel for her hand. Is there an ulterior motive for his love? Check out this excerpt from The Winds of Winter, for example. However, Sansa tells him that King's Landing is her home.
Time passes by and Littlefinger has to leave now and wants to take Sansa with him. Sansa, however, refuses Littlefinger's offer once again because Margaery told her that she would marry Loras once Joffrey and her are married and that she'd go to Highgarden - It sounds like a dream come true for Sansa; Marrying a galant prince and visiting the most beautiful place in the Seven Kingdoms. But of course, this is Game of Thrones and right before Littlefinger departs, Sansa receives word that she will have to marry the Imp, Tyrion Lannister.
Sansa and Petyr are reunited on a boat which was bringing them to the Vale. Baelish tells Sansa all about Joffrey's murder and this is also one of the scenes where we see Sansa's developement as a character: Scrutinising things and being suspicious of Littlefinger's deeds is showing us that she isn't as naive as she used to be. When asking Littlefinger why he did all those things that put his life at great risk, Petyr tells Sansa that one has to keep his foes confused hence they don't know what your next step is going to be.
Still leery of Littlefinger, Sansa asks what Littlefinger really wants. Petyr now caresses Sansa's arm and tells her; "Everything. During Littlefinger's trial, Sansa demonstrates the abilities she learned in King's Landing and saves Littlefinger from being killed off. After the trial, Littlefinger visits Sansa in her chambers and Sansa tells him why she helped him. At this point, Littlefinger still thinks Sansa is only his chess piece, because he seems quite skeptical that Sansa truly knows what he wants.
