‘The Vampire Diaries’: Caroline ‘recognizes that Tyler needs a Stefan,’ says Candice Accola
There are hints that Tyler and Caroline’s friendship is something more. Are we going to see them develop a romance?
A lot of great romances can grow from friendship. Of course, there’s definitely a possibility of that. Whether or not that’s going to happen, I don’t know. We’re not that much farther ahead of the audience. So I really don’t know. I know that … Caroline’s the only one that knows what Tyler’s been going through, so that friendship isn’t just going to go away. There’s something there. Whether that turns into a romantic relationship or whether it turns into a really beautiful support system for one another, who knows. The fans will just have to stay tuned and watch.
Romance or friendship-wise, do you think they’re doomed in a way since vampires and werewolves are historically enemies?
It’s definitely got a Romeo and Juliet quality to it, the idea of them becoming romantic. Who knows? That didn’t end very well with Romeo and Juliet. [Laughs] Hopefully, it wouldn’t be that same result for Caroline and Tyler. I don’t know. Really, right now, the most prominent thing going on between both of them is finding a safe place for Tyler to transform. It’s really about his transformation right now. It’s not about anything else, which I think is such a wonderful thing because, for Caroline, any involvement with a member of the opposite sex was immediately sexual throughout the first season. It was immediately like crush-worthy. It wasn’t just like a friendship. I think it’s just a lovely way of showing that she as a character has grown within the second season. It’s more than just about a boy I immediately have to have a crush on. It’s a friendship. It’s something a little bit more substantial.

‘The Vampire Diaries’ Candice Accola and Michael Trevino dish on a potential love triangle
When I asked that inevitable love connection question, they played coy for a moment before Accola gave me a little hint of what’s to come.
“What I think is so wonderful about any romantic relationship, in my opinion, there’s usually some sort of friendship that starts that off,” she says. “Who knows what’ll happen throughout the rest of the season, but as of right now, I think it’s a beautiful parallel for both of these characters that are kind of embarking on this new part of their lives in such an extreme supernatural way.”
“He gets to know Caroline a little better and has somebody there,” Trevino tells me.
Will Tyler and Caroline’s new relationship ruin the bromance for good?
“Now we have this triangle,” Trevino explains. “Tyler and what he’s going through, and what he’s going to go through, and Caroline and Matt. So for a few episodes I think there’s going to be this trio, this dynamic of questioning and wondering.”
Matt remains clueless about the vampires and the werewolves, but he’s starting to be aware that his friends are leaving him out of the loop. “You’re going to see Matt investigate some things,” Trevino says.
By the Light of the Moon looks good based on the images. I am really enjoying the plot twists and turns. They always keep me guessing.
The Caroline and Tyler storyline is interesting and a fun side story. I hope Caroline gets to stick around.
What do you think of what Candace and Trevino had to say?
