When it comes to our favorite ships on The Vampire Diaries, we have a soft spot for Steroline.
Stefan helped baby vampire Caroline through her transition in Season 2, and ever since, we’ve been hooked on this potential couple. We know these two are just friends, but could they ever be anything more? E! Online recently asked Paul Wesley and Candice Accola about the odds of a Steroline romance happening in Season 5 — after all, they’re both single now! — and the two TVD stars have very different opinions on the matter.
According to Candice, Caroline is firmly on Team Stelena. "I think Caroline truly believes Stefan and Elena are supposed to be together, so I can't imagine her, at this time, trying to get in the way of that,” she said.
However, co-star Paul has a completely different view of Stefan and Caroline’s relationship. "Yeah, I can see that happening and I think it will happen,” he said. “It's been a very slow process. They like to really take their time with it. They've been sort of hinting at it and teasing it, but it hasn't materialized."
He added: "Hopefully within this season. They don't have very much time left for Stefan and Caroline to get in the sack. That, I think, needs to happen."
While we think Caroline has enough men to keep her mind occupied — between Tyler, Jesse, and Klaus — hooking up with Stefan may not be such a bad idea. Caroline, being the Type-A personality that she is, needs to relax a little, and Stefan, well, he’s going to need someone to take his mind off all the memories that came flooding back to him when Tessa jumbled his brain (again). It sounds like the perfect hook-up opportunity to us!
What do you think, TVD fans? Should Stefan and Caroline get together, or are they better off as friends? Sound off in the comments!
