Game of Thrones fans were devastated to see Littlefinger (played by Adrian Gillen) brutally murdered last season.
He was killed by the Stark sisters, Sansa (Sophie Turner) and Arya (Maisie Williams) when they had had enough of his scheming ways.
But was Littlefinger all bad? Recent evidence has emerged suggesting he actually was a pretty honest guy.
He made a promise to Catelyn Stark (Michelle Fairley) he would bring Sansa back to her when she went off to King’s Landing to marry Joffrey Baratheon (Jack Gleeson).
And if fans recall, Littlefinger did just that: he got Sansa back to Winterfell.
He even promised the eldest Stark daughter he would do such a thing, saying: “For her sake, I’ll help you get home.”
Of course, Littlefinger went about it in a shocking way, knowing full-well that when Sansa returned to Winterfell, she would be greeted by evil Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon) who ended up raping and torturing her.
Nobleheartedkate said on Reddit: “In his own twisted way he believed he was doing what was right for her.”
Another forum user shared: “I think he gave her to the Boltons because he knew that they would lose, she would live, but would be scarred and turn to the ‘dark side’.”
For Littlefinger, many are wondering if he will return to Game of Thrones for the finale season.
Since then, Aidan Gillen has dropped a big hint he will be back.
Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk, the actor was quizzed about whether he will make a surprise return.
Keeping tight-lipped, Aidan said: “I don’t know, but I do know… I don’t think so.
“Maybe in a prequel as Little-Littlefinger. Babyfinger!”
The actor laughed: “Babyfinger would be a good one.”
Aidan went on to discuss what the atmosphere was like on set when his character was killed off.
He recalled: “I think the day we actually shot that scene was quite sad.
“But it was one of the first things we shot from season seven so I had to do all the rest of the stuff after that.
“It was quite liberating to be dead while playing all your other stuff.
Game of Thrones season eight returns April 14 to HBO, and follows a day later on Sky Atlantic in the UK.
