According to the TV news outlet, Stefan “doesn't have the emotional energy for a relationship" when Season 6 begins. We don’t blame the guy. Only four months have passed since the apparent death of his big brothers. In vampire-time, that’s like a blink.
Although, it doesn’t sound like emotional exhaustion is the only thing standing in Steroline’s way. TVLine also teased that, even when Stefan is ready to start something romantic, he still “sees Caroline as a friend.” Poor Care Bear. Well, we have to give her props for confessing her feelings to Stefan. And it sounds like she may have another prospect on the horizon...
Sadly, we’re not talking about a certain Original vampire currently breaking necks (and hearts) in NOLA. We’re referring to new TVD character Liam (Marco James). One of Elena’s new pre-med buddies, Elena will try to set him up with Caroline because she thinks they’re perfect for one another. Elena as matchmaker...what could go wrong?
Are you rooting for Steroline to get together? Do you think Stefan will ever develop romantic feelings for Caroline? Sound off in the comments below!
Catch the Season 6 premiere of The Vampire Diaries on Thursday, October 2 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
