jonfeldthejonfeld asked: I was wondering if you think in the TV show that the role played by Endric Storm may be taken over by Gendry as I image they want to keep that actor around. I'm not sure how Gendry will get to stannis but it may be a way to keep him in the next season and not introduce a new character. It would also be a way for him to stay near Arya if he's taken away to Bravos for protection. Just any idea but it may help keep the contained universe of a TV show. Thoughts?
Gendry would be around for the material covered by this season regardless. Edric shuffles offstage around the same time Gendry does, so somehow making it so Gendry winds up with Stannis (a separate, equally unlikely issue) and fills the Edric role wouldn’t solve the problem of keeping Joe Dempsie around — he’d be gone by the same point either way.
