Sansa Stark might be bewildered as to why Lord Petyr Baelish and goals — and all along the way, he has never stopped telling us how much. Littlefinger — also known as Petyr Baelish — has been one of Game with no obvious purpose except turning Sansa's allies against her and. To further his goal of sitting on the Iron Throne, Baelish took Sansa Stark under his Through their good relationship, Hoster agreed to foster his son Petyr at.
I find the smartest, most tragic anti-hero in every story and root for them as the underdog.
As a former friend of mine used to say, why root for Raoul? I have a soft spot for Petyr Baelish.
But like so many characters on Game of Thrones, Petyr is not purely a villain. He has ambitions, reasons, weaknesses, and sentimentality just like everyone else.
And even though I do not believe one human being can change another, a large part of me wants to see Petyr redeemed.
Petyr is perhaps the most morally dubious of all the characters and certainly the most cunning; on one hand, he is a ruthless long-term strategist single-handedly responsible for setting all the events of the series in motion through one deliberate action: On the other, he is an incurable romantic who has spent the last thirty-odd years pining for a woman who never loved him in the first place.

He is, for all intensive purposes, a rape survivor, but most people overlook that due to his status as a man. It is no excuse for his behavior, and motivates none of his actions; instead, Petyr has transcended the trauma and has his eye on larger goals.
Scrutinising things and being suspicious of Littlefinger's deeds is showing us that she isn't as naive as she used to be. When asking Littlefinger why he did all those things that put his life at great risk, Petyr tells Sansa that one has to keep his foes confused hence they don't know what your next step is going to be. Still leery of Littlefinger, Sansa asks what Littlefinger really wants.

Sansa's relationship with Littlefinger | Thrones Amino
During Littlefinger's trial, Sansa demonstrates the abilities she learned in King's Landing and saves Littlefinger from being killed off. After the trial, Littlefinger visits Sansa in her chambers and Sansa tells him why she helped him. At this point, Littlefinger still thinks Sansa is only his chess piece, because he seems quite skeptical that Sansa truly knows what he wants.
Sansa is now using the advice from Cersei which I adressed above; She's using the best weapon a woman has. Sansa eventually embarks, however, Petyr leaves her alone at Winterfell soon after they arrive there because he has some business to do in King's Landing.
For a long time, Sansa doesn't see Littlefinger. Littlefinger genuinely seems like he didn't know about him and this is probably the first time something went wrong in one Littlefinger's plans. Highkey pissed off, Sansa threatens Littlefinger and tells him that she never wants to see him again.
However, before the Battle of Bastards she writes him a letter asking him for help because he owes her a lot.
