Subj: Here it is! The thread zvelf couldn’t wait to post in!

Just so zvelf knows, the seed for this thread was actually planted by Unstable Molecule and his reflections on Littlefinger's untimely death below (more on that later).

So, you are to assume that this is not the final season of the show. Which characters do you choose to keep alive for a next one? They can be as few as you like or up to half the surviving cast, so I would say a max of... 15?

You can just list your choices and be done with it, but if you have reasons for picking as you will, be my guest. You can even expand and regale us with the details of the roles they would be playing in this next season, the plot they would operate in, etc.

As a bonus, if you want, you can even revive one character from a past season.

Now, concerning Molecule's Baelish fetish, I cannot say I see his continued relevance. First of all, let's just agree that being smart cannot protect you from dropping your guard around people you have feelings for and trust. Sansa was a goal, not a mere pawn, so his heart wanted to trust her, creating the same weakness he took advantage of against the Starks in the past.

More importantly, while he always advanced his own goals while at it, he mostly influenced events at the behest of others. He himself was never a powerful player (I really like how Cersei made that point to him), relying on duplicity and the means others lent him. So this far in, seeing how he was not actually in command of a faction or surrounded by players susceptible or in need of his deceptive skills, his role in the story had effectively ended.

And no, the actual war the show was building to was not one Baelish had a part in initiating (in fact, unless I'm misremembering, I don't even think he realistically expected a war out of the Arryn thing)...
