It looks like the Knight of the Flowers may be searching for a new sparring partner in season 4 of Game of Thrones. Finn Jones, who plays Loras Tyrell, chatted recently with Access Hollywood about the exciting new episodes and the future of his character’s love life.
“It’s been a fantastic season. Everyone’s worked really hard and the show is just going from strength to strength to strength to strength,” Finn told Access Hollywood at HBO’s post-Golden Globes soiree at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday.
“It feels like it’s really finding it’s ground now and it’s about to explode so I’m really excited,” he added.
Jones also reportedly said, “There’s not enough hot gay sex for Loras this season. I’m afraid there’s just not enough,” and that this year, he has “a slight flirtation with one of the new characters.”
Some potentially spoilery speculation about what these quotes may be alluding to, after the break.
Ours is the Fury: A flirtation with “one of the new characters” most likely refers to Oberyn Martell, known to be bisexual. It’s interesting to see that there presumably won’t be a love scene for Loras, based on his remarks. We know that Olyvar, Littlefinger’s spy and Loras’s lover last season, is coming back this year, but apparently not in connection with Tyrell. I’m wondering if Olyvar will flirt with and spy on Oberyn instead, or if Littlefinger will find another use for him, possibly filling a role similar to the one played by Marillion in A Storm of Swords.
