It’s fair to say that the upcoming sixth season of Game of Thrones is the most hotly-anticipated in the show’s history. With the HBO adaptation of George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire fantasy series now having largely surpassed Martin’s source material, everyone (book readers included) is now in the dark as to how events will play out. When you factor in the shocking cliffhangers that closed out last season, it’s hard to think of another TV series that has generated so much hype … or so many questions. Given that no one really knows what to expect from the plot of season six, there are no shortage of questions we want answers to. Here are the most significant ones we hope this season will answer.
12. Where’s Gendry?
Game of Thrones has an odd habit of having characters disappear for seasons at a time, but the vanishing of Gendry may be the show’s most blatant (and mildly amusing) case of sweeping a character under the rug. Last time we saw the bastard son of Robert Baratheon, he was desperately rowing away from Dragonstone after Melisandre had her way with him (as she does) and took some of his king’s blood. It was great to see Gendry make a break for it and get away from the Red Lady and her crazy machinations, but where did he go? It’s been two seasons since we’ve seen or heard from Gendry and frankly, we’re starting to get a bit worried that he never made it to shore. Even if it’s just a revelation that he was killed by a group of bandits, we’d just like to know what happened to him.
