Ahead on The Vampire Diaries: Another Birthday Party!

by at . Comments

Get ready to sing "Happy Birthday" again in the near future, Vampire Diaries fans.

Following a season three premiere that saw Elena turn 18, producer Julie Plec tells Entertainment Weekly the same milestone will be hit by Caroline soon after this show returns on January 5... but there will be a problem: our favorite cheerleader doesn't age.

Caroline in Pink

“She says ‘I couldn’t wait to be 18. Seventeen is a filler year. I’m stuck in a filler year for the rest of eternity,’” previews Plec. “She’s just starting to question what her life is gonna be as a vampire and kinda mourning the loss of her relationship with Tyler and feeling kind of unsettled and a little sad."

Wait, Caroline won't be her typical upbeat, optimistic self?!?

Not only will this trouble all members of the TV Fanatic staff, but Plec says Elena, Matt and Bonnie will "realize they need to do something nice for her to kind of get her out of her funk, and they give her a very unconventional, untraditional birthday.”

Let's hope it helps. In the meantime, come on VD lovers, let's think of what we can get Caroline for her birthday...

Can't wait for 5th january!I really hope forwood isn't over yet,tyler is the perfect match for caroline,he's so reasonable and understandable unlike matt.


Luv this pick of CareBear;) How I miss this show and Forwood n Delena

Uncle jackass

I suggest volunteering at the nearest nursing home for some humility.


@Twanz stuck with Matt what are you kidding me! Did you see Matt dump Caroline because he didn't except her. But Tyler always respected and excepted Caroline for who she was. Even after to she told Tyler she killed somebody. He didn't judge her and ran off. Tyler has been nice to Caroline and stuck around for her after Matt broke it off. Matt bailed Tyler stayed. There hero is the one that stays. It sounds like Tyler and Caroline haven't communicated since he walked out. So she might be assuming its over. But I read another article were Plec said Tyler will prove his love to Caroline. Plus as Caroline realizes she will never age. Doesn't it make more sense for her to fight for the man that she can be with forever? #Forwood isn't over yet.


I'd get her a beach vacation. She needs a break.


I don't think its for sure either way yet. Tyler said he likes the him that Caroline helped him to become. So thats something. But I also think that she might think its over because he walked out without them officially finishing their conversation. Plus, with her being upset about her "filler year" issue, she could easily pile the Tyler issue on top, as it would be hard for her to be optimistic about it when she's so down about her being a vampire.


so.. i know there is no love lost between caroline and jeremy.. so he wont be helping.. but tyler wont? she should have stuck with matt.. tyler has always been a douche not bcs they were monsters and they had common ground means u shud start a relationship wit everyone who has common ground.. anyways she dumped him so i guess he is kinda sore styll

@Kelly: It was left ambiguous. Remember, Tyler asked Caroline if she could handle his loyalty to Klaus, she was silent and he left the room.


what do you mean the loss of her relationship with tyler???? when did that happen? in the midseason finale they were still together!

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 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.
