** SPOILER WARNING: Possible spoilers for Game of Thrones ahead **

Season seven of Game of Thrones is currently filming in Belfast, numerous cast members having been spotted across Northern Ireland, including Maisie Williams, Lena Headey, and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.

However, as filming progresses, photos have begun emerging online of those characters we were unsure would return for season seven.

First up is Iain Glen, who plays Jorah Mormont on the show (via Winter is Coming).

While not completely unexpected - he was spotted on a plane to Belfast with Brienne actor Gwendoline Christie - the photos of him in Belfast confirm his story is far from over. (Perhaps he find a cure for Greyscale?)

As exciting as Jorah’s return is, there’s another spot that tops it by quite some way. According to Watchers on the Wall, Gendry actor Joe Dempsie has been spotted at Belfast airport looking particularly shady.

The character was last seen in season three rowing off into the ocean, heading Davos’s words of wisdom, saving him from death by fire. Looks like the boat of abandoned plot lines is finally docking.

In the novels, Gendry - the illegitimate son of King Robert Baratheon - is a member of the Brotherhood Without Banners, led by Lady Stoneheart.

Seeing as Stoneheart has yet to appear in the show and Gendry was not with the Brotherhood in season six, it is unlikely this will factor in the show. As with much of season six, we’re wading into the unknown.

Meanwhile, two rather large plot spoilers recently emerged online concerning the Greyjoys. A recently revealed plot location has also hinted at some major plotlines to come.
