The blonde beauty also discussed whether her character will be jealous that Matt (Zach Roerig) is clearly falling for Elena (Nina Dobrev) all over again. (Seriously, those two were making quite the goo-goo eyes at each other in Season 3, Episode 16, “1912.” Guess getting trapped in a slightly crazy lady’s closet brings people together.)
“I think Caroline has feelings for Matt in a very protective way,” Candice says. “At this point, she’s in a full-fledged relationship with Tyler [Michael Trevino], who used to be his best friend. There’s really not much going back to that. Although it is high school, so it’s a little bit more acceptable.”
Aw, we always thought those two made a cute couple, but it sounds like this is all part of Caroline’s newfound maturity.
