Now Varys fans can feel how Littlefinger fans felt when he got stupid all of a sudden just to kill him off.
Besides Dany turning heel (which I always wanted, so happy with it), my other hope for the story to end with a Varys vs Littlefinger showdown. Littlefinger literally becomes 'king of the ashes' after Jon/Dany/Cersei goes out, and Varys leads Sansa or someone to take him down.
It's just amazing to me we never got to see LF and Varys in a scene together again in KL.
nah, littlefinger didn't get stupid
he got too overconfident in sansa staying naive and reliant on him, then fucked up majorly by suggesting to her that arya(!) was after power and titles and wanted to kill her, which was just lol
he also relied on bran not remembering anything from the assasination attempt...bran obviously became the three eyed raven so that didn't work out
having arya be the one 'accused' then sasna suddenly shifting to lord baelish was well done. all the little pieces of his puzzles came back to haunt him
finally, it was built up to. he was a pivotal part of the main storylines for what, 6 or 7 seasons? betrayed ned, helped olenna murder joffrey, his arc shaped sansa's due to rescuing her, battle of the bastards, interactions with lysa at the vale, then going to winterfell etc
by comparison varys did fuck all from season 4 to half way through season 7. he and tyrion seemed to have an agreement to plunge downhill and become thick as pig shit, as characters
then suddenly he's plotting to kill dany but we know how that went down
not really a comparison tbf
i agree that more scenes between the two like the first couple of seasons would have been nice
