Welcome to the latest opportunity for a TV Fanatic staff member to defend one of our Best Teen Couple nominees. If you missed previous editions, so far...
- Carissa Pavlica has shown love for Delena.
- Matt Richenthal has explained his affection for Soby.
- Eric Hochberger has dared to love Dair.
Now, can Dan Forcella convince you that Forwood is where it's at? He's gonna try...
They might get killed in the poll, and they really are the third most notable couple on their own show... but I'm here to tell you why Caroline and Tyler of The Vampire Diaries are TV's Best Teen Couple.
While everyone watching TVD has fought over who Elena belongs with, there has been one constant: Caroline Forbes is amazing! All you need to do is check in on any one of our Round Tables this season to realize how much love there is for the blonde beauty.
After plenty of time alone, getting turned into a vampire and spending a brief stint with Matty Donovan, Caroline finally found her way when Tyler Lockwood became a major part of her life. The rest is romantic, entertaining history.
These two built a bond when Tyler triggered his werewolf gene, as the newly formed vampire helped him through the sort of transition with which she is familiar. Watching Caroline care for Tyler as he turned at the first full moon was some of the most endearing stuff we have seen on TVD.
Of course, all of that time spent with Caroline caused Tyler to fall for her, and the two eventually sealed the deal in the season three premiere. Only one of the hottest scenes of the year.
But now Tyler is Klaus's first successful Hybrid, and although we haven't seen him in action for a couple of episodes, that is not something to be taken lightly. The power this couple brings to the screen makes Brangelina in Mr. and Mrs. Smith look like a couple of high school virgins.
One is a sexy blonde vampire. The other is a ripped out werewolf hybrid stud. How do you make a better pairing than that? I don't think you can, and that is why Forwood is the best teen couple on television. Go ahead and change your vote now. I'll wait here.
