Thoros of Myr? Why wait until now? Why not introduce him at the Hands games?
Because casting an actor for a minor role in one episode and then not having him appear again until two years later isn't really a practical way of doing things. It's the same reason the featured extra who played Beric in season one wasn't brought back for season three.
Could have had a stuntman in a robe with a fire sword though, and probably would have been a stuntman anyway for the Tourney.
They could have, sure, but that would have cost money (particularly a fire sword effect) and served no real purpose. Showing Beric briefly made sense because Ned's response to the Hound's actions was important to the plot, but Thoros would just have been an easter egg for the fans, and there are cheaper ways to do those. I suppose they could have found and costumed a decent-looking featured extra for the scene where Ned gives the commission, though.
