Then again, it may not. We’re honestly not really sure how to feel about this news.
If there’s one thing Game of Thrones fans are in agreement on at the moment, it’s that the beloved Gendry is due for a comeback. Since the last Baratheon (technically half-Baratheon but it still counts) didn’t return in Season 6, lots of people were starting to seriously wonder where he had gotten to. And while there were lots of very entertaining theories, nobody really knew for sure and just assumed he’s been rowing his little boat for the past three seasons.
But thanks to the power of social media, we may actually have some clues about a possible return.
Somebody snapped a picture of the actor who plays Gendry, Joe Dempsie, at the Belfast airport.It was first reported by the website “The Watchers on the Wall” and picked up by The Huffington Post. Needless to say, fans are losing their collective mind since Belfast is Game of Thrones production headquarters (and other beloved GoT actors have already been spotted there).
Some people are even giving the actor the perfect travel accessory based on what his character has been up to this whole time.
Others are (understandably) losing their mind with happy excitement for seeing Gendry back in action.
Even the Twitter accounts dedicated to the famous lost rower are getting in on the excitement.
While other characters are saying what’s on everyone’s mind.
Just the *thought* of a Gendry return is enough to make people this excited, so imagine how mind-blowing it might be to see him (and Arya) share the screen once again.
