10 Confusing Game Of Thrones Moments Nobody Understands

9. Where Is Gendry?


Remember Gendry? I can't blame you if you don't, we haven't seen him now for two seasons (and counting).

Gendry was a blacksmith, Arya's friend and the (unknowing) illegitimate son of King Robert. The show hinted that the character may end up having a big say in the fate of the Iron Throne, but was last seen on a rowboat in season 3 after being freed from the machinations of Stannis and Melisandre by the ever-noble Davos Seaworth. Why was it hinted that he'd have such importance, only for him to be totally forgotten?

We still haven't seen or heard of Gendry's ultimate fate, so he could yet return before Game Of Thrones' tale is told, but as far as we know he's still bobbing about on some unnamed sea in a rowboat. Such a confusing waste of a promising character.
