The seventh season of Game of Thrones is still far in the horizon. But that doesn't mean that fans can't enjoy some little clues here and there to help them get through the wait.
Two actors, Lena Headey and Joe Dempsie had shared their thoughts on their respective characters' fates, as well as what the two more seasons will bring to the table. A few spoilers here and there, be warned.
Things won't seem to be going well for Queen Cersei, portrayed by Headey. As we all know how Game of Thrones season 6 ended, she is now the one sitting on the iron throne, but with no real ally by her side. Even her brother-slash-lover gave the look that starts the downhill of any relationship.
Meanwhile, perhaps her biggest rival for the throne, Dany, is backed by thousands of men and women willing to serve her as queen. Not to mention the Hand of the Queen in the form of Tyrion, a wealthy ally in Olenna Tyrell, Varys, Ellaria Sand, and the Greyjoy siblings. A full fleet, if you pardon the pun.
Speaking to The Wrap, Headey does acknowledge that things are looking bleak for Cersei. And even though she expressed a pleasantly surprised feeling at the outcome, Headey admits that it's not all positive.
"I don't feel comfort, I'm pondering where she can go from here. I don't think it will end well. Who knows?"
Headey also acknowledges that she is tired of all the losses that she has suffered. Ironically, with all her ambition, it seems that the biggest issue with Cersei now is to survive and prove her worth.
While Cersei's end isn't looking very well, one character might make a comeback someday within the two seasons. Dempsie gave his two cents' worth to Digital Spy, fueling possible speculation as to where his character will be in the Game of Thrones storyline.
According to Dempsie, Gendry, who is the rightful heir to Robert Baratheon, is a story that is essentially a loose end in the entirety of Game of Thrones. And while he is not yet aware of any plans on how Gendry will come back, there is still a big possibility that he will do so.
"It's a bit of a loose end, and they don't make a habit of leaving them untied—and actually as the series progressed, the more ‘forgotten' characters that have returned, the more Gendry sticks out like a sore thumb."
It's still quite a long wait before the seventh season. But if it means anything, seeing Gendry again in Game of Thrones and putting him into the pit of battling houses may be something I'm looking forward to.
