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

Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.

Damon
