Perhaps the creepiest relationship currently on Game of Thrones is the one between Sansa (Sophie Turner) and Littlefinger (Aidan Gillen). Half the time, Littlefinger acts as a father figure to Sansa, while the rest of the time he’s undressing her with her eyes and trying to make out with her. With Sansa finally figuring out what Littlefinger wants (i.e. her) and sporting a sexy new look for their road trip together, will this odd couple hook up in Season 5?
The truth is, we just don’t know. The show has essentially caught up with Sansa’s storyline in the A Song of Ice and Fire books, so her plotline in Season 5 will either largely be made up (like much of Arya’s time with the Hound was this season) or pulled from the unpublished Winds of Winter. Sansa seems to have finally figured out how to play the game, and that she and her sexuality are Littlefinger’s biggest weakness. Those two facts combined could make for some super awkward scenes in Season 5.
Further lending credence to the theory that these two hook up is a statement made by George R. R. Martin’s confidante, Elio Garcia. Garcia has stated that The Winds of Winter contains a Sansa chapter that is “sure to be controversial.” Some fans have speculated that this refers to Littlefinger raping Sansa, but it could very well be that Sansa seduces Littlefinger, which would still be quite the controversy since she’s only 13 or 14 years old in the books.
While our hope remains that their relationship remains platonic, we’ll have to wait for Season 5 to see if these two go down in the annals of gross TV hookups.
