    This is definitely a show I will binge rewatch. I have a hard time remember past events and keeping track of all the characters. I'll probably wait until it wraps up in 2018 and then start over.

    That's what I'll probably do as well. I want to rewatch The West Wing and The Wire now, thanks to this thread. :)

    I just watched this episode again and found a minor plot problem. Before the battle Sansa gets angry, tells Ramsay that he is going to die in the morning and to get a good night's sleep, then SHE LEAVES. At that point Ramsay goes on and on about starving his dogs for 7 days to Jon and company. Sansa must have great hearing, because she isn't there when he says it. She brings it up at the end like he said it to her, but she was long gone when he said it.

    I just assumed Jon told her when they met again after the battle and that's why he was put in the kennels.

    Yep, that's the most likely explanation. There's no indication of how much time has elapsed since Jon's pummeling of Ramsay and the next scene with Ramsay strapped to the chair, but it's safe to say Sansa and Jon had an opportunity to discuss what should be done to him.

    LittleFinger is absolutely the bad guy. He was the one who put all of this into motion by having Jon Arryn poisoned, manipulated Lysa into writing that bogus letter to Caitlyn, then gave Tyrion's dagger to Bran's would-be assassin in Season One. He betrayed Ned Stark, orchestrated the death of Joffrey with the Queen of Thornes, and has slowly been amassing power.

    He is one crafty SOB!

    And had both Jon Arryn and JOffrey murdered.

    If you are trying to argue that Littlefinger is a bad guy, the fact that he was responsible for finishing Joffrey is not very good supporting evidence. ;)

    Was Petyr Baelish in Winterfell to orchestrate the assassination attempt on Bran Stark?

    I believe in both the books and the TV show, he was in King's Landing when the party arrives from Winterfell.

    Yeah.. I think Jeoffrey was alone in planning Brandon's assassination attempt. I think Petyr took advantage of Cat's trust to further steer the Stark's against the Lannister's though. Petyr is the villain, he created all of this chaos.

    Honestly I wouldn't be surprised if Littlefinger ends up being the one on the Iron Throne when this is all over with

    Evidence points to Joffrey. As conniving as Baelish is, I'd be surprised if he'd murder Cat's child, with how he felt about her.

    Yet her daughter ended up in the hands of Ramsay Bolton, probably the most sadistic character in the series, a turn of events that was pretty beneficial to Littlefinger.

    No sooner did Sansa escape Bolton than Rickon ended up in Bolton's custody.

    When this series is all said and done, someone needs to make a cut of all the Littlefinger scenes together. It'll show him as the true bad guy of the series. He seems to get around and have his fingers in everything.

    Even so, evidence points to Joffrey.

    If Baelish had sent the assassin in to kill Bran, he wouldn't have had him carrying a knife traced back to him. Only Joffrey is stupid enough to give him a recognizable knife to do the job.

    Baelish is sitting in a good spot right now, but what will he do when the dragons come? And why hasn't he tried to unite with Dany?

    Oh, I agree. I was just pointing out that there is no limit to what he will do to gain more power.

    Sure, in the abstract, anyone might do anything. The writers of the series, or Martin in the books could decide that characters do things that serve plot that wouldn't make a lot of logical sense in a real world. Really, anything is possible. I'm just inferring with the information available what seems most and least likely.
