Why doesn't Sansa question Littlefinger about his role in her father's death?

10 posts in this topic

In the first season of Game of Thrones when Ned is trying to carry out Robert's will in naming his rightful heir. Littlefinger double-crosses him in open court in front of dozens of witnesses and characters by putting a knife to his neck. Why doesn't Sansa question Littlefinger's role in this? Its hard to believe that she didn't know that he was involved in the betrayal of her father.

She doesn't know about that, in the books or the show.  Because nobody there had any reason to say anything to her about it.

In the book it explains that they keep her seperated from other people who would tell her anything. They took jeyne pool away from her in the books because she saw the hound break down a door to come after people from the stark household. Personally I always wondered how she wouldn't know since even cat knew about it. If it helps I think the best way to explain it is that she was marked as a traitor and with the exception of shea,margery,and olenna noone really was close to her and olenna and margery were doing it at least in part because she was beneficial to them in dealing with joffrey and in possibly getting the north. Everyone else would have treated her like the plague because she was marked as a traitor.

The thing is, in the show, she says that "they" (Robb and Ned) made stupid mistakes and lost their heads for it. The problem is that she clearly doesn't know that LIttlefinger betrayed her father, so what stupid mistakes could he have made that she actually knows about?

She probably doesn't know that he mistakenly trusted Littlefinger; she probably doesn't know that Renly was in position to arrest Joffrey and take the throne for himself, and Ned refused to participate; she probably doesn't know that he told Cersei that he knew her secrets before telling Robert. All of Ned's big mistakes are completely unknown to her. The reason she seems to know that Ned made mistakes that cost him his head is because the writers want her to seem capable and knowledgeable out of nowhere, not because it makes sense for her to know.

I think she knows her father trusted people when he shouldn't have. I think her real meaning behind telling jon that was not to be completly honorable and expect the worst from people

She knows Ned went against Cersei. She doesnt know the facts but knows Ned lost.

All that time in KL and not one word got back to her regarding LF betrayal of Ned.

The whole world away from the Twins knew, as did Sansa that Roose Bolton personally stabbed King Robb through the heart.

This is just plot hole # ................................... It may come up if the Hound ever makes it to Winterfell and then watch LF squirm like hell at the sight of him.

She kind of knows but Little Finger has the Vale army behind him. So she is waiting for the right time to get back at him.

I just hope that before he dies, there's a revelation he whispered into Joffreys ear to kill Ned.
