Warning: This article contains alleged spoilers for Game of Thrones Season 7.
Interviews with the Game of Thrones cast keep on coming, and with them, some possible enlightenment about Season 7, and the theories surrounding it. While talking to the Huffington Post, actor Conleth Hill, who portrays the enigmatic, infinitely poised, and salient Varys, discussed Game of Thrones Season 7.
During that chat, he was asked about the stealthy positioning of Game of Thrones‘ two most formidable, ferocious, and shadowy power players: Varys and Littlefinger. When asked if they were the ones fans should really be looking out for, Hill told the Huffington Post this.
“‘Very interesting question,’ he said, before teasing a possible meetup in Season 7. ‘I can tell you that I loved working with Aidan Gillen (Littlefinger), and I can tell you that it’s possible we work together again,” he said, adding, “But not definite.'”
While many fans would certainly welcome an encounter between the verbal sparring partners, there is no indication of a Varys/Littlefinger rendezvous in the alleged Game of Thrones Season 7 plot leak that was originally posted on Reddit by user awayforthelads, and later recompiled by maureencreates.
Is the alleged Reddit leak missing a crucial plot point?
This would not be the first time something of seeming importance was missing from the alleged plot leak. It also made no mention of Alys Karstark’s (Megan Parkinson) introduction in Game of Thrones Season 7, a recent casting confirmation made by Watchers on the Wall.
The only possible reference to Alys is in an alleged storyline that finds Sansa and Jon Snow (Kit Harington) at odds over how to deal with the Houses that did not join them in their fight against the Boltons. Will Alys play a role in their disagreement? Will Littlefinger and Varys share a showdown? Only time will tell.
