The Vampire Diaries season 3 continues this week with episode 22, the finale, "The Departed," and Elena's not going to be the only one who has a decision to make. Caroline and Tyler will as well.
Vampire Diaries Season 3 Episode 22 "The Departed" Spoilers
With Klaus gone, Caroline and Tyler thought they had the chance for happiness without the problem of the Original hanging around. However, it's going to be short-lived. Executive producer Julie Plec told Entertainment Weekly, "Caroline and Tyler learn that there's a target on their back and that if they stay in Mystic Falls, they could very well end up dead. So they have to decide what they're gonna do about that. There's a lot of choices that each of the characters need to make about their future. Do they stay and fight to the death? Do they run and get the hell out of dodge?" Alaric did reveal to the rest of the Council that Caroline's a vampire and Tyler's half-vampire, half-werewolf at the end of episode 21, "Before Sunset," before he stopped Sheriff Forbes and Mayor Lockwood from leaving.
One of the Vampire Diaries season 3 finale sneak peeks out does show Matt telling Elena that Caroline and Tyler got calls from their mothers. Could that be the last time some of them see Caroline and Tyler if they decide to leave Mystic Falls? Even if they do decide to leave, that doesn't mean they can't return in the beginning of season 4 (or at least early on). Will they have any other choice but to leave Mystic Falls? They're going to have a lot to deal with, not only with the Council knowing what they are but also with Alaric still out there. He may not be able to kill Elena if he wants to stick around, but Caroline and Tyler aren't safe from him. It may very well be in their best interest to seriously think about leaving town, at least for the near future. But will they be able to just leave their friends behind to deal with Alaric? Will that be what keeps them in Mystic FallsÂ—wanting to help?
