'GOT' Fans Predict Gendry Will Be the One Sitting on the Iron Throne

By

Winter is here! The final season of Game of Thrones is less than three days away, and fans are anxiously waiting to find out who will live or (sadly) die. The war against the Night King and his army of White Walkers will transpire over the six-episode stretch, and while there have been no spoilers as to which characters will survive the Great War, many believe Gendry (played by Joe Dempsie) will be a key figure in the final season of the HBO show. 

Yes, some fans theorize that Gendry will sit on the Iron Throne when Season 8 of the HBO series concludes. The blacksmith is currently the only living relative of the late King Robert Baratheon. Though a bastard son, his character could play a major role in the final season. Trained by Tobho Mott, Gendry is one of the few people who is able to forge Valyrian steel — which we all know is one thing that can kill a White Walker.
