There is a good reason why people want Gendry back in "Game of Thrones" Season 7. The only surviving bastard son of Robert Baratheon may have been written out of the storyline in the third season, but everything about the character hinted on his possible importance. So is Gendry returning to become one of the central heroes of the HBO series? And will he finally give Gendrya shippers something to look forward to by marrying Arya Stark?
First Things First: Why Is Gendry So Important To 'Game Of Thrones' Season 7?
In ancient times (or what most refer to as "Game of Thrones" Season 1), Ned Stark discovered that Cersei Lannister's children were bastards. The new Hand of the King decided to look for a true heir for Robert Baratheon and ended up meeting Gendry. Although Ned managed to get the boy safely out of King's Landing, Ned himself didn't see Gendry get recognized as Robert's true heir. Will the boy finally realize his importance and return to Westeros in "Game of Thrones" Season 7?
There are speculations that Gendry will finally be back when the seventh season airs next summer. Fans are still expecting his return despite previous statements from David Benioff and D.B Weiss that the character is "still rowing" (via GamenGuide). Some fans believe Gendry is more than just a MacGuffin whose minor storyline was introduced to set the show's pace. It is possible that Gendry will be the one character whose return will change Arya Stark's fate in "Game of Thrones" Season 7.
In addition to reuniting with his "lady" Arya Stark, Gendry's comeback could also bring the series to full circle. After all, one of the show's first great mysteries was already solved in the previous season (Jon Snow's real parents, for those who weren't paying attention). Gendry's fate may finally be revealed in "Game of Thrones" Season 7.
Do you think Gendry will finally return in "Game of Thrones" Season 7? Let us know in the comments below.
