Our Forwood hearts were ablaze with glee during The Vampire Diaries Season 5, Episode 5: “Monster’s Ball,” with Caroline Forbes (Candice Accola) and Tyler Lockwood (Michael Trevino) dressing up as the infamous Bonnie and Clyde. But it didn’t take long for our hopes and dreams to be dashed — for good.

We knew that a devastating breakup was going to be headed our way, and we were pretty certain that it would be Forwood — hello, you can’t just break up Delena right now — but that doesn’t mean we weren’t upset when Caroline and Tyler went their separate ways.

According to Tyler, he couldn’t “do the college thing right now.” Sure, dude. Caroline, eager to keep her beau happy, antied up to putting a lot of pressure on him to enroll in college and pursue his dream of studying Sociology.

And then the real drama hit the fan. “Do you know the reason we’re together?” Tyler asked Caroline. “Because Klaus granted us permission to be together. I’m sorry, but I can’t live like that… He killed my mom and got away with it. I can’t just start caring about sociology and frat parties.”

It’s good to see Tyler stand up for himself, but we really don’t like that he made Caroline cry. Right before he left for good, Caroline offered Tyler the chance to stop walking away and be her true love. We could totally tell that there was a moment that Tyler considered staying, but, in the end, he walked away.

Given his extreme hatred of Klaus, it has us wondering if Tyler will head down to New Orleans to take on his sire rival. Could we see Tyler on The Originals? Hit the comments and let us know!
