The night may be dark and full or terrors, but one of the longest-running jokes on Game of Thrones has been the notion everyones favorite bastard, Gendry, is still rowing that damn boat we last saw him in during season three.

Well, it appears Gendry may have finally reached dry land. According to reports, it appears Joe Dempsie, the actor who plays Gendry on Game of Thrones, was seen by a fan at George Best Belfast City Airport in Ireland.

So, what does this mean? If you do a little research, youll discover Game of Thrones is filming the seventh season in Ireland, which has ledeveryone to come to the same conclusion: Gendry is going to be in season seven of GoT.
This also means one of the internets favorite memes could finally be coming to an end.

Earlier this summer, we reported on Gendrys possible return to Game of Thrones based on a slew of quotes from Joe Dempsie. He said,
Im as in the dark as anyone else.
Its a bit of a loose end, and they dont make a habit of leaving them untied and actually as the series has progressed, the more forgotten characters that have returned, the more Gendry sticks out like a sore thumb.
Speaking with Digital Spy, Dempsie also intimated how badly he wanted to return to Westeros, saying,
Theres a lot of unanswered questions about Gendry and the longer it goes on, the more obvious his absence becomes.
I mean, God, the amount of flippin memes I get sent on Twitter whether theyll bow to that pressure or not, I dont know. But fingers crossed, because itd be lovely to go back.
Were still quite a while away from the premiere of season seven of Game of Thrones, but considering there are only 13 episodes left of the HBO hit, I wouldnt be surprised to the see the action begin with the opening scene.
