After searching for the escaped Arya, Gendry resigns himself to life within the Brotherhood. He doesn't believe her dead-- even after news of the massacre at Salt Pans-- and when Beric places him at the Inn at the Crossroads he accepts it eagerly, knowing that this is the last place Arya was ever seen in the company of the Hound.
Living day to day, Gendry tends to the children and protects the inn and works the side-slant forge there. When called on, he rides with the Brotherhood. After Beric's death he sees his brothers fall from honorable rogues to the slaves of a vengeful agenda. They have become a truer breed of outlaws and the light is gone out more than a little. The span of war and the tightness of his heart have aged him, made him sharper and more visceral in his temper and his attitudes. He does not pray and only rarely smiles. A laugh is rarer still.
He reamins, at his core, the same stubborn lad that lived for himself-- with Arya gone and the Brotherhood turned to ride under a ruined banner, he is just Gendry again. A fatherless bastard boy with a hammer and a knighthood now.
