Is it Thursday yet? With ‘Vampire Diaries’ returning on Jan. 22, we can’t help but wonder what’s next for Steroline — and in looks like Sheriff Forbes is right with us.
Stefan (Paul Wesley) has stepped up as a friend for Caroline (Candice Accola) during her mom’s illness: but she may need more than a friend. In a brand new trailer for The Vampire Diaries, Sheriff Forbes (Marguerite MacIntyre) forces Stefan to make a huge promise. Watch!
‘Vampire Diaries’ Stefan & Caroline Together, Thanks To Sheriff Forbes
“I need you to promise me something,” Sheriff Forbes tells Stefan, from her bed in the hospital. “When I’m gone, Caroline’s gonna need you.”
Of course, the clip then cuts to Caroline and Stefan in the woods — because where else would they be at an important moment? The good news is that Caroline has a smile on her face, so maybe she’s okay with him taking care of her now?
We can always hope.
We have to point out that in December, showrunner Julie Plec teased us with a ton of spoilers on her Twitter page — one being that “Stefan Salvatore fixes a friendship….and then some.” We’re thinking (and praying) that means his flirty friendship with Caroline.
Paul Wesley: Stefan’s ‘Ready For A New Love’
Plus, we know that Paul Wesley actually directed the new episode coming this week, and he’s all for Steroline.
“I’d like to see that go down. I’m all for that. So they’re ready to explore that. We’ve just got to get them over that friendship hump, let them get down and dirty, and then deal with the consequences,” Paul said in an interview in October. “I think there’s some chemistry there. And I think Stefan’s ready for a new love.”
That’s enough for us! What do you think — will Steroline finally get together after Sheriff Forbes’ passes away? Let us know.
