On the Set With Vampire Diaries' Candice Accola: Things Have Changed For Caroline and Tyler
Michael Trevino, Candice Accola
The Vampire Diaries' Caroline Forbes may have resisted Klaus' temptations, but can she resist the lure of college boys?
"We will see other male characters in the series that will be in college and that are good looking. So, there's definitely opportunity for temptation or flirting or whatever young freshman in college do," Candice Accola tells TVGuide.com in the video below. "But Caroline is still holding onto her relationship with Tyler."

When we last saw Caroline, she had graduated high school with her best friends by her side. But the one person missing? Her love Tyler (Michael Trevino). After a brief visit to surprise Caroline for prom, Tyler left town to avoid the threat of his enemy Klaus (Joseph Morgan). But on his way out of Mystic Falls, Klaus told Caroline, "Tyler is now free to return to Mystic Falls. He's your first love. I intend to be your last — however long it takes."
So why is Tyler still absent when the CW series returns? And when they do eventually reunite, will their love remain?

"They definitely care for each other, but we'll see that things have changed," Accola says. "It does parallel what young relationships go through when they move to college and are in two separate places. You're trying to figure out yourself and your life and your path and trying to meet other people. It's a lot for a relationship to withstand. So, we'll see how long she's able to do that."
Is that good news for Klaus-Caroline fans? Not exactly. Watch the video below to find out why:
