What if this is a deliberate parallel from D&D, as we're suspecting many of the changes are? Since Robert (and Ned) was fostered at the Eyrie, he would have been familiar with the mood(maid) door.
Being pushed out of the moon door seems to me to be the equivalent of jumping (or being pushed) off the top of a tower. So bam, right there, we connect Petyr Baelish and Bael the Bard.
Ok, working this out in my head.
Bael and Baelish are both Deceivers in-story. They each 'stole' a Stark maiden, seemingly an opportunistic thing but in reality planned out a long time in advance. Bael stole the Stark daughter as revenge upon Brandon the Daughterless who had called him craven. Littlefinger stole Sansa as revenge upon Lannisters (after he had already gotten revenge on the Starks in a fashion).
Bael takes the Stark maiden down down down to the crypts of Winterfell. Littlefinger takes Sansa up up up to the Eyrie. Bael fathers a son on the Stark maiden and Littlefinger takes Alayne as a daughter, both to establish an eventual claim to Winterfell.
Littlefinger pushes his wife/Sansa's aunt Lysa from the Moon Door (the tower) as she is threatening to kill Sansa. The Stark daughter throws herself from the tower after the son kills his father Bael.
Littlefinger's plans for Winterfell are interrupted by the Boltons taking a 'Stark' daughter to wed. Bael's son (now Lord of Winterfell) is shortly after killed by a Bolton.
So we need the middle head to complete the Trio. During the Rebellion days, who was the Deceiver that wanted access to Winterfell? What was the relationship? Which direction did they go? Was there a Bolton involved at the end?
