Game of Thrones fans, think back. All the way back to Season 3, when a young man named Gendry rowed out of our lives and into internet legend.
When we last left the bastard Baratheon, Ser Davos was helping him escape Melisandre, who wanted to use him as a blood sacrifice to help Stannis. The boat Davos put him on was to help him row to King’s Landing. He might have needed a map.
After three years, we still have no sign of Gendry. We feared his legacy was left to be a meme for all time.
Actor Joe Dempsie, who plays the poor bastard, thought the same after the Season 4 finale.
Watchers of the Wall posted a photo of actor Joe Dempsie at George Best Belfast City Airport in Northern Ireland. The site noted that Dempsie doesn’t seem to have any other ongoing projects that require him to be in Ireland, but one of Game of Thrones‘ many shooting locations includes Northern Ireland.
It’s not hard proof that Dempsie has returned to the show, but with only 13 precious episodes left in the entire series, it might be time to tie up some loose ends.
If it is true, we’ll be glad to have Gendry back.
