When The Vampire Diaries returns for Season 5, viewers can expect Caroline Forbes to be her signature control-freak self. But unfortunately for Caroline, the reality of life at Whitmore College doesn’t quite match her expectations.

"Caroline is actually really upset," Candice Accola told TVFanatic.com. "She wants this perfect college experience, but she keeps waiting for Bonnie to show up and Tyler to show up."

As we know, Bonnie is very much dead and won’t be showing up at Whitmore anytime soon. Meanwhile, Tyler is up in Appalachia helping a werewolf pack. Of course, that doesn’t stop Caroline from registering Tyler for his fall classes. But her dreams are soon crushed when she receives an unwanted phone call from Tyler. Don’t worry Forwood fans, Tyler doesn’t break up with her, but don’t expect to see this werewolf on campus anytime soon.

"What started off as high hopes change pretty quickly for Caroline," Candice said. "We're not gonna see her at a football game and she has to be dragged to a party by Elena. It's not a good first day of college at all."

With such an awful start to her freshman year, will Caroline find comfort in her new admirer Jesse? Not quite, said Candice.

“Jesse does take a liking to Caroline. But she really can't be bothered with him,” she said. “They're just friends. Her focus is on Tyler."

What do you think, TVD fans? Are Caroline and Tyler headed for a break up? Sound off in the comments!

Catch the Season 5 premiere of The Vampire Diaries on Thursday, October 3, 2013, at 8 p.m. ET on The CW, followed by the series premiere of The Originals.
