GAME OF THRONES is renowned for weaving a lot of clever foreshadowing in the show, and it may have already predicted one very interesting plot point of season eight concerning Gendry.
As Game of Thrones fans will know, Gendry (played by Joe Dempsie) is Robert Baratheon’s (Mark Addy) bastard son who managed to escape the massacre of the king’s other illegitimate children.
He disappeared for a few seasons of the HBO fantasy epic as he sailed away from Westeros to avoid detection, but he returned in the seventh season after being tracked down by Davos Seaworthy (Liam Cunningham).
Gendry played an important part in the penultimate season as he was part of the group who went out to confront the army of the dead Beyond the Wall.
Given he now appears to be an ally of Jon Snow (Kit Harington), one of the major players in the series, he could take on an important role in the final instalment.
