What a Wicked Littlefinger

Game of Thrones, is in fact a game of chess. If you recall back in Season 3, Petyr Baelish says, "chaos isn't a pit, it's a ladder. It's every man (or woman) for himself or herself, and you're either a player or a pawn." On last nights episode,in a somewhat intimate (and kind of gross) moment between Lysa Arryn and Littlefinger, it was revealed that it was in fact Lysa that poisoned her husband Jon Arryn. We only got a brief glimpse of Jon Arryn, who was hand of the King to Robert Baratheon,in the first episode of the series. Lysa went on to say, that she did as she was told, giving her husband the drops of poison and sending the letter to Catelyn, thereby blaming the the Lannisters for his death. All on the command of Littlefinger.
So if we look back on Lord Baelish, former Master of Coin, and beloved brothel owner, he was ultimately responsible for the events that led to Ned Stark's untimely death, the war that ensued thereafter, and finally King Joffrey's death (maybe his only redeemable ploy).
Being behind almost every major move, since the beginning, what is his angle with Lysa. Even he looked a little repulsed by her, yet he agrees to marriage. Does Lysa's refusal to join the war efforts have anything to do with his decision? With the Vale comes gold and men, a full army. So what will be his next move?
Check Mate!
