Hollywood Life caught up with Vampire Diaries star Candice Accola to talk about episode 3.17 “Break On Through” and how she does not want Klaus and Caroline to hookup.
“Klaus is still pursuing Caroline,” Candice assures me. “He’s very relentless. He’s pursuing her with just as much gusto as he is putting together his hybrid army.”
But Candice is quick to note that “Klaroline” shippers might be getting a little ahead of themselves.
“Everyone’s so excited about this potential thing between [Klaus and Caroline], but it’s so funny, because I think viewers are forgetting that Klaus is a really bad guy,” she says. “This is evil Klaus who murders people unforgivingly, threatens Elena’s life constantly, and uses her for blood. He’s not a good guy.”
In fact, as Candice points out so eloquently, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Caroline’s entire relationship is built on manipulation.
“Caroline is really just using Klaus to relinquish Tyler,” Candice says. “She’s playing the game a little bit so that maybe he’ll do that for her out of love. Right now, he’s not really buying it. … If this had been season-one Caroline, she would have fallen hook, line and sinker into that British accent. But season-three Caroline has grown up. … She’s not falling for any of his tricks.”
And speaking of Tyler (Michael Trevino), what’s to become of the sired little hybrid who broke Caroline’s heart — and bit her neck — just a few weeks ago? Caroline’s got some good news for all you “Forwood” fans:
“Tyler will be back in Mystic Falls, and Caroline and Tyler will see each other,” Candice promises. “We’ll see how that plays out, if he was able to cure himself of his sire bond — or if he wasn’t.”
