This question was a JEER- in the column Cheers and Jeers in TV Guide 9/4-17/17 by Damian Holbrook-.
In the 6th episode of Season 7 of Game of Thrones, why was Gendry picked to run back to Eastwatch?
To me it makes a lot of sense. He was young, strong and uninjured. Holbrook thinks it was a bad choice because Gendry had "never seen snow in his life" but so what... it's harder to survive in the cold the longer you are out in it. I am right?
If there is a more knowledgeable official answer please post it. Thanks.
