My thinking is that the above information implies collusion by the Faith and Tyrells against the Lannisters . . . but how does Loras help the both of them?
The only thing that comes to mind is Loras serving as the Faith's champion against Cersei's champion in her trial by combat in return for fixing the verdict in Margaery's favor during her own trial.
This is an interesting question as the Faith seems to be in on it, or maybe they were just discussing his injuries?
Things that speak for Loras being severly injured:
1. His own hot headedness
2. That Margaery is absolutely terrified of what he means to do. If it's Tyrell plotting, Margaery ought to be in on it, most likely
Things that speak against it
1. Aurane Waters is not exactly a truthful individual or in any way reliable.
2. The injuries he describe are too severe for Loras to have fought on
The Faith being in on it, and in that case, how?
Aurane and Loras as lovers, especially since it's been theoriesed elsewhere that Aurane is taking the dromonds to assist the Tyrells and leave Cersei to burn.
