One of the show's biggest lingering questions will be getting an answer, if a certain someone's sighting means what we think it means

For years, one of Game of Thrones' most frustrating unanswered questions has been "Where's Gendry?"

The unacknowledged bastard son of the late king Robert Baratheon was last seen in the Season 3 finale rowing off into the distance after being freed from captivity by Davos Seaworth (Liam Cunningham) to prevent Melisandre (Carice van Houten) from sacrificing the boy for his royal blood in a dark magic ritual. As far as we know, he's been rowing toward King's Landing ever since.


Well, it looks like we're going to find out what he's been up to for all this time in Season 7. Joe Dempsie, the actor who plays Gendry, was spotted by the Thrones spoiler extraordinaires at Watchers on the Wall arriving at the airport in Belfast, Northern Island, one of Game Of Thrones' shooting locations.

While this does not confirm that Gendry's back, Dempsie probably isn't there on vacation. A Gendry return on Game of Thrones seems imminent.

Expect Dempsie to show off a newly jacked physique in his Thrones return. After all, Gendry did a looooooot of rowing.
