Game of Thrones announce the return of a favourite character

The Game of Thrones excitement builds.

As is tradition, we're starting this article with a warning for anyone that wants to remain spoiler free.

After rowing for an eternity, HBO have confirmed the news that Gendry, a major character in the first three seasons of Game of Thrones, will be making his long, long, long-awaited return in the seventh series of the show.

Joe Dempsie, who plays Gendry, stepped out with rest of the cast yesterday at the season premiere and fans of the show will finally learn what happened to Robert Baratheon's bastard son.

Granted, various reports confirmed Dempsie's presence on set, but it appears that we're finally going to see where Gendry headed towards after he left Dragonstone at the end of Season 3.


Technically speaking, given that all three Baratheon children are dead, Gendry would be the next in line to legitimately take the throne.

Yeah, try wrestling that position away from Cersei, Daenerys and others!

Gendry, in case you can’t remember, is the unacknowledged bastard son of the late Robert Baratheon. He befriended Arya Stark in King’s Landing before joining the Brotherhood without Banners, who traded him to Melisandre for two bags of gold.

Aware of his lineage, Melisandre brought Gendry back to Dragonstone, seduced him so she could claim some of his blood and then threw him in a cell.nHe was eventually set free by Davos and has been rowing for so long ever since that he’s become the subject of some very popular and very funny internet memes.

He must be absolutely wrecked after all that rowing!
