In the season 4 finale of The Vampire Diaries, Klaus gave Tyler back his freedom to love Caroline and return to Mystic Falls. However, the studly hybrid is nowhere to be found in the season 5 premiere.
Tyler doesn't show up in the premiere, but Caroline still only has eyes for him; she even completely (and hilariously) rebuffs a cute frat guy. But we will tell you Tyler will cause our favorite blonde vamp to cry and we totally want to punch him in his werewolf junk for it.
The Vampire Diaries premieres tomorrow night on the CW @8/7c.
