Be careful: spoilers on "Game of Thrones" season 7 will follow! Gendry is one of the most loved "GOT" minor characters. The last time we saw him was in season 3: Melisandre relegated him in a cell beneath Dragonstone; thanks to Davos' intervention Gendry was able to escape the castle and leave on a rowboat.

Who is Gendry

Gendry is a blacksmith and one of the bastard sons of King Robert Baratheon. While investigating the death of Jon Arryn, Eddard Stark recognizes that Gendry is Robert's bastard.

After Ned's death, arrangements are made for Yoren of the Night's Watch to bring Gendry to the Wall. A while later Gendry and Arya are captured and taken to Harrenhal, where he manages to escape along with Arya and Hot Pie. Shortly after, they're captured by the Brotherhood without Banners, and the Brotherhood sells Gendry to Melisandre for two bags of gold.

Melisandre takes him to Dragonstone, where she seduces him, leeches his royal blood and locks him in a cell. Davos Seaworth is the one who smuggles him off Dragonstone on a rowboat.

Spoilers: Gendry will be found again in the capital

According to the leaker who spoiled several "GOT" season 7 events on Reddit (whose spoilers tended to be considered legit,) we will see again Gendry at King's Landing, working as a blacksmith. We're not going to spoil any other detail of his story arc, except that Davos is going to make a joke about him "still rowing" when he sees him.

Gendry was hiding in plain sight just like Davos suggested

It may look weird that Gendry decided to head for King's Landing, but it's actually what Davos suggested him the last time they saw each other.

During the "rowboat" scene Davos tells him to reach King's Landing. "The Gold Cloaks are looking for me", Gendry replies. "They're looking for me for twenty years", Davos says, pointing out that they don't know Gendry's face, and that he should worry more about the Red Woman.

The leak confirms that Gendry was hiding in plain sight in King's Landing all along, and after all, we must also remember that the Flea Bottom district in the capital is the place where Gendry was born.
