Game of Thrones Season 7 is still months away from its premiere. But, fans of the series will surely be delighted to know that a major character could possibly return in the show. Who is it? It is no other than Gendry.
First, for those viewers who just recently became a fan of the series, let us introduce you to Gendry. The character was and probably going to be played by Joe Dempsie. He was last seen at the end of the third season.
The character is the bastard son of Robert Baratheon. He became friends with Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) in Season 1 and they travelled together with Hot Pie (Ben Hawkey). In the second season, the trio ended up as prisoners in Harrenhal. They managed to escape the prison in the third season but then was captured by the Brotherhood without Barnes.
While they were being held by the group, Gendry helped the brotherhood by fixing some armor. Later on, he decided to stay with the Brotherhood which distressed Arya. However, Gendry was surprised when the group turned him over to Melisandre (Carice van Houten) in exchange for two bags of gold.
She tried to send him to Dragonstone to be a ?royal blood? sacrifice for Stannis. But, he was freed by Davos (Liam Cunningham). The latter sent Gendry on a boat heading to somewhere, and that was the last time he appeared in the show.
Now, what made the fans think that Gendry is returning in the Game of Thrones Season 7? Mainly, the rumor started when a certain fan saw Dempsie at an airport in Belfast, Northern Ireland, where the production of GoT is being held.
Several publications noted that the actor has no other work commitments. So, him being there could possibly mean that he is returning in the upcoming season. Plus, rowing in a boat for four-long seasons should be enough to get where he was heading to. However, there is also a possibility that he could be visiting a friend in the region and everything was just coincidence.
As of now, no official announcement from the producers has been released. But Gendry?s return in the Game of Thrones Season 7 will certainly make huge changes in the plot especially for Arya.
