Tyler Lockwood (Michael Trevino) is currently chilling in The Garden, aka the basement Marcel (and now Klaus?) bricks those into who have done him wrong on The Originals. Yeah, it’s pretty much your worst nightmare. But, don’t fright! Tyler will be getting out sometime soon, if this picture of Michael on the Vampire Diaries set is any indication. But that leaves us with one burning question: How does he break out of The Garden?

“We’re definitely going to see what’s going on in the garden,” TVD executive producer Michael Narducci told TVLine. “Tyler is not the only one who’s buried in there. When we come back in the New Year, you’re going to see Rebekah have some perspective on what that location is, and how she might be able to use that to her advantage.”

Yikes, we’re both looking forward to and dreading spending more time in The Garden. Is there any chance Rebekah herself will get stuck there? Or is she just recruiting anti-Klaus forces from its ranks? And how does Tyler come into all of this?

Well, according to Michael,  “My friends at the Vampire Diaries office would really very much love to see Michael Trevino make a return. It stands to reason, logically, that somehow we’re going to address the issue of how does Tyler get out of that garden.” It seems somewhat strange that Rebekah would be the one to unleash Tyler, as she was the one who kicked him off of Team Marcel, worried that he might go after the miracle baby. But, she doesn’t seem to have a problem with Tyler past that worry. If he promises to go back to Mystic Falls, or even gather an army to take down Klaus, perhaps Rebekah will let him go…

Do you think Rebekah will let Tyler out of The Garden? Sound off in the comments below!

The Originals returns Tuesday, January 14 at 8 p.m. on The CW.
