Seven Hells, Catelyn Stark's Zombie Wasn't at Winterfell

In the scene, Bran converses with Littlefinger, AKA Petyr Baelish, who presents him with the dagger that nearly killed him back in Season 1, and set in motion the War of the Five Kings.

As Season 7 of Game of Thrones pushes forward, we are getting more and more callbacks to the first season of the show. When it comes to that conniving, backstabbing, creepy-uncle-looking motherf*cker, there is no middle ground.

Secondly, Littlefinger has to realize Bran knowing all means the young Stark knows Littlefinger betrayed Ned and sparked the War of the Five Kings.

Wright hit pretty much every dot on the Chicago tourist bingo card during what was his first visit here, he said: "Sears Tower", he said, Millennium Park and the Bean, Tribune Tower, the Art Institute, Andy's Jazz Club and a Chicago architecture boat tour. Instead, it's nearly certainly just a tip of the hat to the character, as the individual in the background undoubtedly looks like her. Jon is behind a wall of Starks. For Sansa, that included a forced marriage to psychotic Ramsay Bolton.

It's clear that Arya notices this scheming against her family, which Littlefinger later claims to have supported non-stop.

This particular meeting could end in a fight between the two. "We don't know if I make it to the season, do we?"

As Arya walks towards her protector, she tells Brienne, "You swore to serve both my mother's daughters", and it's at this precise moment that fans believe the cloaked spectre of fallen Stark matriarch Catelyn (Michelle Fairley), who perished in season three's Red Wedding, can be seen walking past in the background. However, we're banking on a completely different Stark eventually slaying Littlefinger: Arya.

Another excellent scene is when Arya and Brienne spar, in this scene we see just how much Arya actually learned while she was in Braavos. "I had a meeting with [series creators] David [Benioff] and Dan [Weiss], and they wanted him to be quite monotone and agenda-less, but at the same time have a slight flair, so it wasn't just like listening to a robot talk". Things have definitely changed since the Stark children last saw each other all the way back in season one. And Arya, who was a scrappy fighter, has now become this unbeatable assassin. Voila! That's some flawless Stark justice, if you ask us.

But did Baelish organise the murder of Bran? Think of it as Pizzagate for people obsessed with a show about dragons rather than say, the Clintons.
