Sansa also warned John. Everything changed for Dany when she found out about John & that's what Sansa saw. Telling Tyrion & Varys the secret was a ploy to expose her.
Dany needed to die because of what she did to King's Landing. That's what woke Tyrion & Jon up. It had nothing to do with Sansa. I know you love that character, but be satisfied with how she outsmarted Littlefinger, and let her go. You said yourself more than once that Dany should look out because Jon was angry. As it turned out, he was angry, and Tyrion convinced him to kill her. Sam also warned Jon about Dany, but I'm not crediting him with Dany's death.

Sansa was an awesome character. She saw right through Dany & knew what had to be done. It was her who was ultimately responsible for her demise.
Sansa had nothing to do with Dany getting killed by John. That was all Tyrion telling John it was either him or her and she would have killed him the first time she had a chance. Sansa was just a spoiled brat who was a musical chair prize. Let her have Littlefinger, although I do not think she figured him out on her own, I think Arya got that plan going. I liked Ramsey better than her, anyway. At least he was funny, Sansa was just whiny and bitchy.

Just thinking about it, most of the credit for Littlefinger should go to His Grace, King Bran the Broken, for remembering that LF held a knife to Ned's throat, and reminding Ned that he had warned him not to trust him.

Shockingly, online sports betting has had Bran the overwhelming choice to sit on the throne for weeks. This would be disappointing & nonsensical.
That wasn't a leak. Those betting so heavily on Bran were people involved with the production who knew the outcome taking the money of the idiots who bet against them. This isn't like sports betting or even betting on an election in which nobody is sure of the outcome. To bet in a situation in which some know the outcome is beyond stupidity. Those who knew just picked up money from the streets. What they did isn't even illegal.

As much as I loved this program and hate to see it end, I thought the last episode was and enormous letdown and truly sucked.

Is that pretty common, people betting on the outcome of TV shows? As you pointed out, it's a pretty stupid thing to do.

I never heard of it before but there are so many sports books now that I guess you can bet on almost anything. I see you can even bet on who will be chosen as the next Pope. That's not a joke. Actually it does seem like a joke that people would bet on that but it really exists: https://mybookie.ag/sportsbook/religion/

Holy shit! They even have betting lines on who will die first. That's pretty fucking morbid.

Sure is. I'm Jewish but find betting on the next Pope while the current one is alive more than just a little sacrilegious and disrespectful.
