Game of Thrones has a ton of potential claims to the Iron Throne in the running for the last season.
While Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) is at present sitting on the Iron Throne, she is not the slightest bit safe.
She is in effect compromised by Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), both of whom have a claim to the Iron Throne.
Anyway fans have been guaranteeing that the arrival of Gendry (Joe Dempsie) last season might indicate towards his arrival to control.

Watchers will know Gendry is the illegitimate child of Robert Baratheon (Mark Addy), who has been concealing the facts of it since Season 1 and has one of the strongest cases to the Iron Th.
Yet, fans think this detail is a bend all by itself in exemplary Game of Thrones style, and they have been guessing Gendry’s mom is in certainty Cersei.
Talking to Men’s Health magazine, Gendry actor Joe talked about his character’s backstory, and the Cersei hypothesis.
He stated: “I just wanted answers about my character. I was the most curious as to what we might find out about Gendry’s parentage.
“Obviously, we know that he was the b*****d of Robert Baratheon, but who might his mother have been?”
He at that point proceeded to allude to what is to come – and it sounds like it could have something to do with Cersei.
Joe proceeded: “There’s a line in season one, and it’s the first scene you ever see of Gendry, where he’s looking to Ned [Sean Bean] and he’s asked about his mother.
“And he says he doesn’t remember much about her at all, other than the fact that she had yellow hair and she would sing to him.
“It’s one of those things where you go, ‘Do they usually write lines that don’t mean anything, or lines that seem to have significance that [are] never addressed again?’
“I was kind of intrigued to see what that might mean, and what impact that might have on Gendry’s clout politically.”
On the off chance that Gendry is uncovered to be the third child of Cersei, might he be able to inevitably change sides to stay with his mom?
Or on the other hand, will he be found and executed as a risk to the Queen before he gets an opportunity?
Game of Thrones Season 8 returns April 14 to HBO.
