Re: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones Spoiler-Filled Discussion
Renly and Loras are both hardly worth mentioning on the list of characters who are barely recognizable in the show, but remember that Loras was Renly's squire since he was a child. Renly was practically a big brother in addition to bring his lover (or rapist, some might argue, depending on how and how early their sexual relationship started). I can't see this Loras throwing himself to an almost certain death to siege a castle that the man who killed his lover isn't even in.
But seriously, after the shaving scene their characters were already well and truly assassinated.
