The possibility of Gendry Baratheon making a comeback on “Game Of Thrones” is looming large. Will his character be aiming for the Iron Throne?
The actor who plays Gendry Baratheon on the “Game Of Thrones”, Joe Dempsie, was seen arriving at Belfast airport a few days back and Belfast being the primary location for filming GOT, people are speculating that that Gendry’s fate might be revealed in Season 7.
Before you go rubbishing the speculations saying that he might just be there to meet and greet his GOT pals, remember that actors like Rory McCann (The Hound), Art Parkinson (Rickon), and Natalia Tena (Osha) were similarly spotted arriving on the sets of GOT last year and they all ended up starring in some capacity or the other in Season 6, reports Vanity Fair.
Despite the fact that he is the bastard of Robert Baratheon, Gendry Baratheon is the last surviving heir to House Baratheon. The last we saw of him was when Ser Davos saved him from the clutches of the evil Melisandre, by sneaking him out at the dead of the night and putting him on a rowboat.
So, assuming that Gendry does return to “Game Of Thrones”, could it serve as an ultimate twist in the tale that now revolves around Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, and Cercei Lannister as the main contenders to the Iron Throne?
That was Season 3 and the show has already completed its sixth season and there has been no sign or any mention of Gendry Baratheon. Hence, fans have taken for granted that the poor fellow must have lost his way and drowned in the grey waters, reports Mic.
‘Game of Thrones’ Theory
With an impending comeback, fans might be looking at an uncanny fourth candidate for the throne (if you don’t count the mischievous Little Finger, of course). However, the fighting spirit in Gendry was never a strong one, and his survival prior to coming in contact with the Red Witch can be attributed to his companion – Arya Stark.
Gendry’s closeness to young Arya at the time was loved by the GOT fans, who affectionately dubbed them “Gendria”. If Gendry is indeed alive and shows up on the show in the next season, there is a chance that he might come across Arya once again, since she is currently on an avenging spree, and hopping from one place to the next murdering wrong doers.
Now they have all grown up and not teenagers anymore, will they have romantic feelings towards each other? A union between House Stark and Baratheon was always something that both Arya’s and Gendry’s fathers wanted. And together they would definitely be strong enough to control the Seven Kingdoms!
