falcotron Posted August 24, 2017 Share Posted August 24, 2017 If Arya is arming Sansa with a dagger, she's hoping/expecting that Sansa will literally or metaphorically backstab Littlefinger. But that's not actually the right thing for Sansa to do. Sansa should instead hit him with a frontal assault, with the weapon she's actually best suited to use: being Lady Stark of Winterfell. In other words, put everything out in the open and formally try LF in front of all the Northern and Vale Lords. Of course that may mean admitting to being party to his weaseling out of the Lysa murder, and to writing the Robb letter, and so on—but she can deal with those things better than she can deal with having secrets over her head and people who want to use those secrets to manipulate her. (And having just solidly established that she's an honorable, just, and honest liege certainly won't hurt her in dealing with them.) And meanwhile, Sansa doing this will be a repeat of Cat's huge mistake in trying to same thing on Tyrion, but this time it won't be a mistake. Exactly the way Jon keeps repeating things that are, on the surface, the same as each of Robb's mistakes, but the circumstances are different so it's not a mistake this time.
