Candice Accola Exclusive: What is the State of Forwood?

by at . Comments

Breathe easy, Forwood fans.

Following a tense few moments on The Vampire Diaries last week, during which Caroline questioned Tyler's relationship with Hayley and believed her man cheated on her while training in the Appalachians, viewers wondered if this might be it for the cute couple.

But Candice Accola made it clear as can be on the phone yesterday:

"They are stronger than ever," the actress said. "And Caroline's intention is to keep it that way. She 110% trusts Tyler."

Beautiful Caroline Forbes

In fact, on tonight's "We All Go a Little Mad Sometimes," we'll delve further into the Tyler/Hayley friendship, while Accola says Caroline will make it her mission to "completely support" Tyler's goal of de-siring more Hybrids.

What about her BFF, Elena, who will be suffering from some serious hallucinations?

"Caroline will there for her as much as she can be. But it's hard for Elena to talk to Caroline because it's been so easy for her. Her transition was atypical in how she caught on a lot quicker."

That's certainly true. The character sky-rocketed in popularity and confidence ever since Katherine made that bloody move in that hospital room oh so long ago. So what about this buzzed-about cure? Would Caroline even take it? Would she want to return to human form?

"I think it's too early to tell," Accola said, unsure of her answer. "She really is stronger than she ever has been as a vampire. She's more secure, very sure of her moral compass. So we'd have to see her go through a whole other transition again the other way."

But the star did tease one upcoming development related to the cure: Everybody will find out about it.

We'll also see a lot more of Caroline with two of the show's leading men.

First: Stefan. Viewers were treated to an interesting scene between the characters a few weeks ago, with Stefan asking Caroline to keep an eye on him in case of any Ripper-like tendencies returning. What else can we expect from these pals in the future?

"You'll definitely see that friendship develop," Accola says. "The parallel that runs through both of their lives right now is that Stefan is trying to do right by Elena even if he doesn't agree with her choices, while Caroline is doing the same with Tyler."

Second: Klaus. At least one already-released Vampire Diaries photo makes it look like this Original still has feelings for Caroline. Are they reciprocated at all?

"They will interact more, I'll say that. They really are fun to watch together because they love to play games. I think that's what makes it so appealing and sexy for fans. Caroline is usually manipulating Klaus. But does that go both ways? Is he just toying with her?"

It's hard to say, but Accola did end the interview sure of one thing. Offered the chance to pen her own diary entry, following last Thursday's return of Elena and Stefan putting their thoughts to paper, the actress laughed and scoffed.

"Caroline doesn't keep a diary. She's too busy watching The Real Housewives."

Even though I'm not veryn interested in Caroline and Tyler's relationship but who knows how they'll turn up throughout each episode. I can't wait to see what else happens. =]

I think the thing that attracted people to forwood a few seasons ago was how naturally they fit together. Their coupling felt organic, they were two teenagers thrust into this supernatural life they didn't ask for and while all this other crazy stuff was going on with their friends they had each other. Exactly. But that was like an age ago. They had this Romeo/Juliet kind of story because of the Vampire-Werewolf stuff going on and it was great. Was. Right now, the writers just use them to throw in some steemy scenes and/or childish fighting (remember when Tyler went angry just because Klaus drew a picture). Caroline acts much more adult with Klaus and he seems (!) to see more than just a hot sexy Vamplady in her.

From much of the second half of it ( I already foresee Tyler going off with other hybrids on some kind of de-siring boot camp somewhere around episode 11).
It's sad to see the potential forwood had be wasted on a half assed, fan induced, out of nowhere love triangle...

Tyler loved her not for the girl she used to be but for the vampire she had become and Caroline was probably the first person to ever care enough about him to look past all his Douchbaggery and see how alone and scared he was. That sort of connection was deep and profound in ways the vampire diaries is not and to destroy that, the rightness of them being together, so Caroline can take up with klaus (klaus, the bane of just about everyone she's ever cared abouts existence!!) is so confounding I just want to shake klausoline fans and ask what's wrong with them!
I think alot of that has to do with the writing and how conveluted and cramped season 3 was, not to mention Tyler's absence from much of the second half of it ( I already foresee him going off to the mountains with other hybrids on some kind of de-siring boot camp sometime around episode 11). It's sad to see the potential forwood had be wasted on some half assed, fan induced, out of nowhere love triangle...

I really want to see Caroline and Stefan get together! I have a feeling, though, that most people disagree with me...

Borewood indeed. So this show takes a boring relationship, adds a person that brings fun and joy to it ... and then continues the boring relationship. Great storytelling, Plec, really.
