The fabulous baby vamp of Mystic Falls, Candice Accola~Caroline Forbes, recently spoiled to Wetpaint about what to expect when “The Vampire Diaries” returns January 27th. She dishes about her blossoming love triangle and trust.
Does anything happen in those?
Yes. There are interactions between Tyler and Caroline. I think the thing to remember is that Caroline’s been lying to Tyler. And also, there are more werewolves coming into town. So how that’s going to sway Tyler in the kind of man that he wants to be is going to be very interesting. How that affects Caroline and Tyler’s relationship and friendship is going to be interesting. Caroline and Matt, whether anything is going to spark. That’s a triangle — there are many triangles. It’s become a whole geometry problem within the town of Mystic Falls. But I think what’s really wonderful is that a lot of supernatural qualities of the show has been going on, and that’s obviously going to continue, but in the next couple of episodes there are a lot of very human questions being asked that are more based on relationships.
Is the werewolf/vampire divide like a Romeo and Juliet thing?
What I like about the Caroline/Tyler relationship is that it’s the first time that we’ve seen Caroline have a friendship with a member of the opposite sex that didn’t stem from sexual attraction. So yeah, there could definitely be something later on, but that’s what’s so beautiful about their friendship. Yeah, there could be technical problems between a werewolf and a vampire getting together, but there are more important things that are going to be asked, just about their friendship: Do you have my back if I have your back?
