The series hero turned out to be interesting, but very stupid.

The brilliant Aidan Gillen gave Game of Thrones viewers the luxurious Littlefinger – cunning, cunning and very sensitive when it came to the Stark women. Only in Martin’s books is this character described in even more depth, and this becomes clear if you read them at least once.

In the series, Petyr Baelish became obsessed with Sansa Stark after Catelyn’s death and did everything he could to take her as his wife, but in the books, Littlefinger’s intentions were completely different. He hoped to marry Ned Stark’s daughter to Harrold Harding, next in line to inherit the Eyrie after the inferior Robin.

Moreover, in A Song of Ice and Fire, Petyr called Sansa an illegitimate daughter, which opened many doors for him – the people around him were kinder to a man who tried to protect an “unwanted” child from a cruel world.

Gillen’s character proved to be an excellent manipulator until his decision to send Sansa into the clutches of Ramsay. He didn’t know what the Bolton bastard was capable of, how cruel he was, but he wasn’t afraid to give him the most important woman in his life. In the book, Ramsay’s wife was Janie Poole, Sansa’s best friend, who married Baelish to Arya.

Besides, the book Littlefinger wasn’t as drawn to Catelyn Stark as the TV series. For Petyr, the game came first, but not teenage love.

While the books aren’t finished yet, it’s clear that Baelish won’t be written out of the plot in such a mediocre way as Benioff and Weiss did. In ‘Song’, Littlefinger was able to control his ambitions and knew very well that he could not fly to the sun and therefore did not try to jump above his head.
