Vampire Diaries Relationship Scoop: Forwood to Move Backward

at . Comments

When we last left Caroline and Tyler on The Vampire Diaries, the former's silence spoke volumes. Sad, sad volumes, as she couldn't tell Tyler she understood he was now sired to Klaus, resulting in an apparent split for this adorable twosome.

And, unfortunately for Forwood 'shippers everywhere, it doesn't sound like the couple will reconcile any time soon.

They have "a lot to overcome," producer Julie Plec tells Zap2It. "Because Tyler, on his own, has a lot to overcome. It's pretty bleak, right now, and it's only going to start to get bleaker before it gets better."

Tyler won't be happy with "anything" when the show returns on January 5 - read the official winter premiere episode synopsis now - Plec says, as Klaus will be exerting influence over his new charge, leaving Tyler in a "very, very bad situation that almost has catastrophic consequences. It's going to take him a while to earn his way back into the good graces of our heroes, his friends, and Caroline."

In a word: GULP.

In many more words: sounds off now with your hopes, expectations and fears for this fun couple. Are they doomed forever?

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
