Proceed at your own peril.

YOU GUYS. IT FINALLY HAPPENED. GENDRY IS BACK. REPEAT. GENDRY IS BAAAAACK.

Nearly four whole seasons after Davos put him in a rowboat headed for King's Landing, we finally know that he actually did make it there.

Yep, this whole time he's been right back where he started, smithing in King's Landing.

When Davos found him, he actually made a rowing joke.

THIS GUY.

And Gendry, like the beautiful, brave bull he is, jumped at the first opportunity to leave King's Landing and fight.

COMPLETE WITH A FREAKING WARHAMMER. Just like the one his father, Robert Baratheon, wielded.

It even has the Baratheon sigil (a stag) on it! GENDRY IS EMBRACING HIS HERITAGE. THE BARATHEONS ARE BACK, BABY.

And holy shit, he knows how to use it.

Appropriately, fighting back against the gold cloaks – the people who have been hunting him since Season 1.

Gendry quickly ended up right where he started AGAIN by heading back to Dragonstone with Davos.

There, he and Jon bonded over being bastards, and the fact that their fathers were besties. Gendry didn't mention Arya, but look, in my headcanon he did right after this scene was done, OK?

Gendry didn't stay at Dragonstone long, though, because he headed straight to the Wall with Jon – his original destination back in Season 1.

He finally made it! And ~joined~ the Brotherhood Without Banners, as he also originally wanted (not before getting angry about them betraying him by selling him to Melisandre, of course).

Talk about making up for lost time.

In short, IT WAS ALL FREAKING AMAZING AND FANS WERE LIVING FOR IT.

GENDRY!!!! I’M NOT CRYING YOU’RE CRYING #gameofthrones

I screamed when Davos said "I thought you might still be rowing"...the writers literally inserted a meme into the show #GameOfThrones

Gendry wielding the hammer like his father was beyond my expectation for his return... and that "still rowing" quote was🔥 #GameOfThrones

"I grew up on stories about them." "They fought together and won." Gendry Baratheon & Jon Snow. This really gave me… https://t.co/JaUerQbEc5

GENDRY AND JON REUNITING HOUSE STARK AND BARATHEON #GameofThrones

Jon and Gendry going off to battle like: #DemThrones #GameofThrones

All we need now is Gendry to survive the wight battle next episode...

The Real Suicide Squad #GameOfThrones

(If they brought him back just to kill him off immediately, I SWEAR TO GOD I WILL RIOT.)

Because he REALLY needs to reunite with Arya.

Also, his smithing skills will surely come in handy what with all the dragonglass weapons they'll want to forge.

But also WE NEED AN ARYA AND GENDRY REUNION GODDAMMIT.

Please?
