We’re only three episodes into “The Bastard Executioner” and already fans of the hit FX historical drama have endured their fair share of blood, drama and sex. But according to Stephen Moyer, who portrays the promiscuous and deliciously devious character Milus on the Kurt Sutter created series, things are only going to get steamier as the medieval drama continues.

So that begs the question: Who will Milus, the right hand man of Lady Love (Flora Spencer-Longhurst), attempt to slip into bed with next? Well, as it turns out, the Chamberlain, who previous slept with a French servant and the village’s twins, has his sights set on someone new – someone with “the heart of a dragon.” That’s right, Milus is after his very own nemesis, Wilkin (Lee Jones).

“I think that, given that you have seen my character with the French servant [in the pilot], I think that it’s fair to say that there is something there [between Milus and Wilkin]. I think that’s safe to say,” Moyer, 45, addressed the chemistry between the two characters during a press conference. He added that audiences will learn more about Milus’ past as the installment continues. “He’ll explain some of his choices and desires.”

International Business Times questioned Moyer about his character’s sexuality, inquiring if Milus uses sex as a way to gain power and control.

“I asked Kurt, because in the scene when [Milus] sees [the French servant] in the toilet with Ventris (Brian F. O’Byrne), I said to Kurt, ‘What is that there? He’s obviously sort of taken in by the boy.’ And [Sutter] says, ‘He’s new to the castle and [Milus] hasn’t had him yet,’” he told IBT.

Moyer divulged that he and the showrunner discussed the concept “of sex being power" for Milus.

“I think that Milus comes from a sort of place if he can have dominion over everything around him as well as his sexuality –he will. Anyway that he can [have] a positive advantage over somebody – to hold over them in the future – he will. It’s classic alpha stuff,” the actor explained. “Milus wants to be the alpha in his own way and the way he’ll do it, he’ll take whatever he can and spin it, whether it’s a piece of Intel or sexual intelligence. So I do think he’s physically and mentally active as well as sexually.”

The “TBX” artist stated that his character isn’t “very discriminating” when it comes to choosing a lover but that he’s more “intrigued” by “people of power” and “waited thought,” which is why he’s so enamored with Wilkin – the complex war hero who is determined to avenge his family’s death.

“I think that intrigues him just as much as sheer brutality,” Moyer added, peeking our interest to see how the warrior's chemistry will play out in the upcoming episodes.

“The Bastard Executioner” airs Tuesday nights at 10 p.m. EDT on FX.
