WARNING: Major spoilers for Game of Thrones season seven ahead! Continue reading at your own risk…
After four long seasons, the bastard of Robert Baratheon is finally back!
In tonight’s episode of Game of Thrones, ‘Eastwatch’, Gendry reappeared in Westeros, and it just so happens that the one man he ran into was Davos Seaworth, the last person to see him before he left.
If you recall, Davos sent Gendry away from Westeros back in the third season. He was being hunted, and getting him out onto the open sea on a rowboat seemed to be the best option for his safety.
Ever since Gendry took that tiny little boat out into the water, fans have been wondering if he would ever return. After all, as the bastard son of Robert Baratheon, the guy does have some stake in the future of the Iron Throne.
In tonight’s episode, while Davos was making his way around the city, Gendry ran into his old friend. To no one’s surprise, the guy was still practicing as a blacksmith, just as he had years ago.
Now that Gendry has returned, it will be interesting to see where the story takes him. Could he stake a claim for the Iron Throne, on the basis that he’s Robert’s only actual son? Or will he band together with Jon to unite the North under the bastards of former heroes Ned Stark and Robert Baratheon?
Either way, we’re all just happy to see Gendry back in the mix once again!
