The Vampire Diaries to Make Like... Shakespeare?

O Tyler, Tyler! Wherefore art thou Tyler?

William Shakespeare might not be the first name one associates with The Vampire Diaries, but Kevin Williamson teases that this will change on season three, thanks to Caroline and Tyler. They are "building to be a fun, romantic Romeo and Juliet" type of relationship, the producer told EW this week.

“We now have a mother who knows her daughter’s a vampire, and we might soon have a mayor who figures out that her son is a werewolf,” Williamson says. “When that happens, it’s certainly building itself to a family feud."

It definitely sounds like Matt is out of the romantic picture, but that doesn't mean all will be smooth sailing for Caroline and Tyler. Adds fellow producer Julie Plec:

“When their mothers find out the truth about each of them, they’re gonna have a say in whether the two of them should be together."

In other season three news, someone will be turning 18 on the September 15 premiere and someone might be getting a new love interest!

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.

Damon

You are literally the best person I've ever known. And for me to think I could ever change you was giving me way too much credit and you way not enough… you're the good. And I need a little good in my life.

Damon [to Elena]
