Game of Thrones: Littlefinger’s secret link to Faceless Men in Daenerys twist revealed

Game of Thrones fans know Arya Stark (played by Maisie Williams) became part of the Faceless Men in season six when she headed to the House of Black and White.

There, she trained as a deadly assassin learning how to kill in the dark and complete silence before heading back to Westeros.

Once home and in Winterfell she was confronted by Littlefinger (Aidan Gillen) who tried to stir up trouble between her and sister Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) – but he failed.

Following his death, one fan has looked back at his storyline believing he was actually in league with the Faceless Men.

The fan of the HBO series is convinced Littlefinger was working with the assassins to protect the Mother of Dragons, Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke).

They reasoned his counsel was very important to the Faceless Men as he stopped them receiving a very lucrative deal to kill the Khaleesi.

An extract from the novels, posted by Reddit user GenghisKazoo, reads: “Ned did not honor that with a reply. Nor did he offer his guest a seat, but Littlefinger took one anyway.

“’After you stormed out, it was left to me to convince them not to hire the Faceless Men,’ he continued blithely. ‘Instead Varys will quietly let it be known that we’ll make a lord of whoever does in the Targaryen girl.’

“Ned was disgusted. ‘So now we grant titles to assassins.’

“Littlefinger shrugged. ‘Titles are cheap. The Faceless Men are expensive. If truth be told, I did the Targaryen girl more good than you with all your talk of honor.

“Let some sellsword drunk on visions of lordship try to kill her. Likely he’ll make a botch of it, and afterward the Dothraki will be on their guard. If we’d sent a Faceless Man after her, she’d be as good as buried.’”

The user goes on to to note Littlefinger’s excuse the Faceless Men are “too expensive and will bankrupt the crown doesn’t hold up”.

In the book and television series, fans later find out he has been bankrupting the crown on purpose already.

This means the contract with the assassins should be in his best interests – so why did he pass up the opportunity?

Could it be because he had a secret link with the Faceless Men and they both wanted Daenerys kept alive to take over Westeros?

Unfortunately, fans may never find out the answer as in the show, Arya slit his throat when Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) revealed he’d betrayed the family.

It comes after one fan uncovered a storyline cut from Game of Thrones that would have seen Cateyln Stark (Michelle Fairley) take Bran and Arya beyond The Wall.

The family would have tried to escape Lannister forces at Castle Black but be turned away from the Night’s Watch.

As a result they would have had to venture further north where they would encounter Mance Rayder and the Others.

Desperate to protect her children, Catelyn would have perished facing the Night King (Vladimir Furdik) while Arya and Bran escaped.
