The Vampire Diaries season 3 has quite a few storylines to wrap up before it ends with episode 22, "The Departed," and part of that is what's going to happen to Tyler and Caroline now that Alaric has revealed what they are and is also on a mission to get rid of vampires.
Vampire Diaries Season 3 Episode 22 "The Departed" Spoilers
Michael Trevino talked to TVLine about what's coming up in "The Departed" for Tyler and Caroline: "At this point, it doesn't even matter about the rest of the Council" since Alaric's "trying to rid Mystic Falls of everybody that has any kind of supernatural element in them." As a sneak peek from this episode shows Matt telling Elena, their mothers are going to be calling them and spoilers have revealed they're going to find out their lives are in danger. Tyler and Caroline have to figure out what they're going to do, and it's not just about them. They're going to be taking into account what this means for their friends as well: " It'll be a life-changing decision: Do they leave town and wait until things cool off and settle somewhere else? Do they never come back? Or do they stay and fight things off with their friends?"
Poor Tyler and Caroline just can't catch a break. They thought they were free with Klaus desiccated, but now, instead of a matter of whether or not they can be together, it's a matter of where they can be together. They're not safe in Mystic Falls, but they can't just leave their friends behind to deal with the fight on their own. According to Trevino, for Tyler, "it's about keeping them safeÂ—not only himself, but Caroline."
There is one good piece of news about these two: "Their relationship right now is stronger than it's been in a very, very long time." However, you can't help but worry that something could happen to change that, especially considering someone's going to die in The Vampire Diaries season 3 finale. Could they have finally found happiness together only for it to be taken away with one of their deaths? That would be cruel and tragic, but this show isn't exactly known to be kind and let characters be happy together for too long without throwing a wrench in things.
Finally, Trevino used "Wow" to describe the finale and said that "the last minute of the episode 'opens another whole can of worms,'" a character "ends up leaving Mystic Falls forever," and fans should be prepared because there's this "really, really big [tearjerker scene] that's going to get everybody." Is the character who leaves going to be Damon or Stefan since they did decide that whomever Elena doesn't choose would do so, or will it be someone else?
Is the scene he mentions about who dies or perhaps the choice Tyler and Caroline make (could they be one in the same?)? Will they be part of the ending that "opens another whole can of worms"? Whatever happens, this is going to be a big episode for everyone involved, and you just have to hope that Tyler and Caroline make it through so they can have more time together after what they've been through.
