Ever since fans bid goodbye to Robert Baratheon’s bastard in season 3, Gendry memes have surfaced all over the Internet. Among the famous ones include “Finding Gendry” and the character boarding a rowboat aptly called SS Abandoned Plotlines. However, recent reports may hint that the fan favorite may finally reach land come Game of Thrones season 7.

The news comes from Watchers on the Wall who shared a snap of actor Joe Dempsie at Northern Island’s Belfast City Airport. According to the website, there are no known projects that require the actor to be in the city. Hence, the source deduces that a Game of Thrones appearance is the likely possibility.

It is important to note though that these are just speculations. On one hand, the actor could still be in the city for a project uknown to the public. On the other hand, Dempsie’s presence in the locale could simply be a personal vacation.

Still, given the surrounding circumstances, it’s also safe to assume that this may all have something to do with Game of Thrones. After all, if no drastic changes in production occurs, the series is down to its last two seasons. Therefore, it makes sense that some storylines left hanging will be revisited.

Game of Thrones season 7 featuring Gendry

There are endless possibilities on how Gendry can fit into season 7’s narrative.

One of the possibilities came from Joe Dempsie himself. Speaking at the AsiaPOP Comic Con held in Manila last August, the actor shared his thoughts on a cool way to return. According to him, it would be great if he’d save “Jon Snow and his hair from imminent death”.

The characters haven’t crossed paths in the show’s earlier seasons. However, Dempsie’s thoughts would be an interesting path to take.

Another of the possibilities is for Gendry and Arya to reunite. It’s also safe to say that majority of the fans would prefer this line of thought.

In the article from Watchers on the Wall, a user going by the name The North Remembers hopes that Ned and Robert’s pact about reuniting their houses comes true. Although at the time Robert meant Joffrey and Sansa, the fan says that the promise could now materialize with Gendry and Arya.
