Twitter Is Erupting Over That Vindicating Game of Thrones Death
Warning: This post contains spoilers for Season 7 of Game of Thrones.
The Game of Thrones Season 7 finale may be the show’s most dramatic episode yet, but there’s one moment that had fans literally cheering at their TV screens. Ever since Arya and Sansa Stark reunited in Winterfell, the two have seemingly been plotting against each other, to the delight of Lord Baelish.
The Season 7 finale began with more of the same, as Littlefinger continued to slyly convince Sansa that her younger sister was trying to kill her and become the Lady of Winterfell. The older sis even seemingly brought Arya into a trial, before turning the attention to Lord Baelish, whom she declared was guilty of the crimes of murder and treason.
Yes, you read that right: Arya and Sansa have been working together behind Littlefinger’s back this whole time. I can’t believe we ever underestimated you girls.
Sansa, as the Lady of Winterfell, then deemed Petyr Baelish guilty of his crimes, and sentenced him to death by his own dagger. Arya played the executioner, and Game of Thrones fans everywhere probably haven’t felt this vindicated since Joffrey drank that poison.
Sayonara, Littlefinger! In one of the greatest plot twists of the season, Arya and Sansa were actually working together to put an end to Lord Baelish, who had been attempting to turn them against each other. Sansa found him guilty of murder and treason, and Arya executed him with his own dagger. Talk about vengeance.
Of course, Twitter had a lot to say about the epic death. Keep reading for the funniest reactions.
