Caroline seriously needs some good in her life right now, but it may not be with Stefan! In a new interview, Candice Accola revealed that their kiss was actually pretty ‘tragic,’ and it may take a while to see the Steroline we’re all waiting for.
Prepare for another tearjerker! The Feb. 19 episode of Vampire Diaries is not going to be any less emotional than the last, Candice Accola says in an interview. The episode, titled Let Her Go will be centered around Sheriff Forbes’ (Marguerite Moreau) funeral, but we can also expect to see Caroline realizing she needs to face Stefan (Paul Wesley) and figure out what’s next after that oh-so-perfect kiss.
‘Vampire Diaries’: Stefan & Caroline’s Future — What’s Next?
“I loved that moment, but I think it’s so tragic, and I love the tragedy of it,” Candice told E! News about the Steroline kiss that us fans have been begging for. “Caroline has been on pins and needles to be with her mom, always right by her side, checking in on her, but the one moment that Caroline finally lets her guard down and lives in a present-minded moment with Stefan, that’s when her mom passes and she’s not there to say a true goodbye, or the goodbye she would have wanted. It’s heartbreakingly tragic.”
So, how exactly does she move forward after that? Well, it’s going to take some time.
“Most importantly, the first thing they need to do is have a talk,” she added. “They need to talk and figure out what this is and what’s happening. At this point, Caroline is really focused on the funeral when we begin the episode, but we will see them have a conversation at some point in the future and the result of that conversation is going to say a lot.”
Prepare For A Lot More Emotions
“If you thought it was going to get easier and happier and jollier, it’s not,” Candice said. “It’s definitely going to be an emotional episode this week as well. Thank God for waterproof mascara!”
Seriously, we were ugly crying all last week. And we have a feeling that emotion will come through loud and clear during Damon (Ian Somerhalder)‘s eulogy for Sheriff Forbes.
“I think it’s such a sweet moment,” Candice shared. “I’ve always loved any scene between Sheriff Forbes and Damon. It such a funny friendship that they have, so it’s only fitting that Damon gives the eulogy. It’s such a special moment that affects him as a character and there’s a really sweet moment that’s acknowledged between him and Caroline.”
We’re ready to cry — are you, HollywoodLifers?
