IMDb Might've Spoiled This 'Game of Thrones' Character's Return


HBO has had a hard time keeping the seventh season of Game of Thrones under wraps. The biggest leak came last week with an HBO data hack that leaked scripts and full episodes, including that of Sunday's "The Spoils of War." But this latest slip-up comes from a much more benign source: your favorite resource for finding obscure actor cameos, IMDB.

The IMDb page for next week's Thrones episode, "Eastwatch," includes a familiar name in the actors' line-up...

Don't remember anything from the names? It's okay, there are so many of them on the show. But do you remember these abs:

Arya Stark would, because in the cast list for the first time since 2013 is none other than the smokin' hot Robert Baratheon bastard blacksmith Gendry (played by Joe Dempsie). Viewers' last shot of him came while he was rowing away on a boat back in season 3's episode "Mhysa," but as Nerdist reported, speculation that a Gendry return was on its way popped up when Dempsie appeared at the season seven premiere.

Alas, there are currently no other season seven Game of Thrones acting credits listed for Dempsie on his own IMDB page, which... might not bode well? To the showrunners: At least let him reunite with Arya, which might be the most satisfying reunion in a season full of them.
