One of the brightest friendships to ever blossom on The Vampire Diaries has been that of Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley) and Caroline Forbes (Candice Accola). Now that Stefan is trapped in a box at the bottom of the quarry and Caroline is headed off to Whitmore College, what will become of our favorite friendship?

According to Entertainment Weekly, Candice says fans shouldn’t be worried, but that they also shouldn’t expect instant gratification. “She’s very hung up on her mini-fridge and small appliances she needs for her dorm room that she needs to, like, cook up quesadillas or something,” the blonde beauty said.

“That’s really what’s on her mind, in the forefront. She’s not thinking of anything else. She just wants to go to college with Elena and Bonnie and have Tyler come meet her and that’s all.”

Well, that sounds peachy and all, but this is TVD we’re talking about. We’re sure that Candice’s plans will go out the window when some big bad gets to town — most likely Stefan’s doppelganger Silas (insert ominous indie song here).

What do you hope happens between Caroline and Stefan this year? Will their friendship survive doppelgangers and college? Hit the comments and let us know!

Season 5 of The Vampire Diaries premieres Thursday, Oct. 3 at 8 p.m. on The CW.
