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

Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
