Gendry is one of the last major characters still yet to get some form of narrative closure in Game of Thrones, his storyline having gone quiet since season 3.
Actor Joe Dempsie was spotted on the season 7 set recently, dressed up to look the part, and this week a cameraman with a telescopic lens got a glimpse of what the bastard son of King Robert Baratheon will be up to when he makes his big, highly anticipated return, and it’s full of spoilers.
So, potential spoilers below…
As Watchers on the Wall first reported, it sees Davos and Gendry preparing the boat when two gold cloaks accost them. Davos pulls back the tarp to show the row boat is empty and bribes the guards, getting rid of them, but they return after Tyrion joins the pair, perhaps suspecting the identity of the dwarf.
The trio appear to be rumbled, so what does Gendry do? He recovers what looks to be his dad’s Warhammer – the same one used to kill Prince Rhaegar – and thumps the gold cloaks to death!
