Sigh. Our new favorite “Vampire Diaries” couple, Tyler (Michael Trevino) and Caroline (Candice Accola) were oh-so-adorable in last week’s episode, complete with not-so-subtle symbolism as he knelt to the floor to put her ring on her finger and then carried her out of her miserable torture chamber.
Luckily, things will be looking up for Tyler and Caroline… at least for a little while. In this super cute clip from Thursday’s episode, Tyler comes home from practice to find Caroline hanging out in his room. (Yes, Tyler has a room.) There’s nothing more romantic than your maybe-boyfriend offering to kick your psycho dad’s ass, right?
We spoke with executive producer Jule Plec about the future of the most charming inter-species relationship ever. She had good news… and then she had bad news. You get the good news first. “Tyler and Caroline have really blossomed,” she says. “For me

We can expect to see their relationship take a significant turn in Episode 5… and as Plec says, the fall-out won’t be pretty.
Oh, and as for all that hot sex they had in the season premiere, Plec doesn’t completely rule out the possibility of a hybrid baby. After all, Klaus was born from a vampire and a werewolf. “We’ve said two things on our show, very clearly. Vampires can’t
procreate, and yet, vampires bodies work like anybody else’s,” she laughs. “So, I
don’t know. Door’s open to take either rule.”
