As you can see in the link below and last episode, Gendry refers to himself as "Gendry Rivers" i.e. a bastard of the Riverlands. I know that in the books, he had been established as born in the KL and therefore a Waters... Did the show not establish him as Crownlands-born as well?

Gendry doesn't have a last name, Waters is wrong as well. Only acknowledged noble bastards have a last name, Gendry was never acknowledged.

Kind of a ridiculous mistake considering the showrunners had 2 years (and they've been involved with ASOIAF since 2010 for god's sake) to figure out:

- non-acknowledged bastards have no last names

- birthplace of Gendry is obviously not in Riverlands but in the Crownlands

I would LOVE the Gendry Rivers thing to be not an error or oversight by the show, but instead a small hint that Gendry isn’t really Gendry and he made a small error, or a sign of something else interesting and twisty 

but in the age of coffeecupgate, it’s probably just a screw up. How disappointing.

Come on, we know better than to dig for some hidden layers atm.

I'll eat my hat if D&D "Dany forgot about the Iron Fleet" conjured that up...

Come on, digging for hidden layers in GoT is all I have left in life

there must be something. Let’s hope whatever it is was SO MAJOR that it distracted them from literally everything else in the season.

It was legitimately one of the biggest grievances I had last episode amongst a massive list of grievances. It would literally take a few seconds of research to realize that he wouldn't be a Rivers.
