Let’s take it back to the Season 7 finale of Game of Thrones when Sansa (Sophie Turner) and Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) pulled off the best surprise execution of all time and took down Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish. In a flashback clip, executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss open up about that intense moment from the episode.
“Whatever you want to say about Littlefinger, and he’s clearly a sociopath among other things, he does have strong feelings towards Sansa. They’re not necessarily healthy, appropriate feelings, but they are feeling towards her. I think he has a hard time believing that she’ll be able to do this,” Benioff says.
Watch the clip above to see how the writers pulled off Littlefinger’s death as well as other behind-the-scenes secrets from the Season 7 finale!
