In circumstances like these, showrunners and the actors are having a hard time holding information for themselves given the fact that they are just excited about the new season as we are.

Aidan Gillen's interview for EW

Proceed with caution, potential spoilers are coming along.

Aidan Gillen, the actor who plays the character of Littlefinger on the show, had some interesting things to say regarding 'Game of Thrones' Season 7 in his recent EW interview. He looked back at his season 2 encounter with Arya Stark and tried to answer the burning question on whether his character recognized her or not.

"It was unclear if he recognized her or not, but I have my own thoughts on that," Gillen stated before answering, "Yes, I did recognize her - I just didn't say anything or do anything about it."

Season 2 encounter between Arya and Littlefinger

The scene Aidan Gillen is talking about took place way back in season 2 of the show. Littlefinger visited Tywin Lannister in Harrenhall proposing the new alliance between the Lannisters and the Tyrells in an attempt to win the War of the Five Kings.

It was during that meeting that Arya, Tywin's cupbearer at the time, encountered Littlefinger and turned her head in despair, fearing that he could recognize her.

Thanks to this latest interview, we know now that he did. However, the reason why he didn't say so still remains a mystery to this day. Maybe he thought Arya could kill Tywin, thus creating more chaos in the realm which suits Littlefinger just fine. Maybe it didn't suit his plans at the time. Hopefully, season 7 will provide an explanation.

What does it mean for season 7?

At the end of season 6, we saw Littlefinger lurking in the background while the lords were proclaiming John Snow a King in the North. Thanks to the season 7 trailer we know that he is going to stay there as we heard his voice tutoring Sansa as well as his encounter with John Snow down in the crypts. Also, as we are aware of, Arya is heading to Winterfell as well. Their encounter is inevitable and we are just going to have to wait for season 7 to see what is it going to bring us.

Game of Thrones season 7 is set to have its premiere in less than 20 days on HBO.
