Paul attended EyeCon 2013 this past weekend in Atlanta, and when a Vampire Diaries fan asked whether we preferred Caroline with Klaus or Tyler, Paul responded, “I’m Team Stefan and Caroline. What are you talking about?”
Adding fuel to the Steroline fire, Paul also dished, “I’ll give you guys a little inside info. They grow you know closer as [Season 5] goes on. I take it that a lot of you guys like Klaus and Caroline together… Yeah, I know, but I like that Steroline business. They have a nice little thing going on.”
Interesting! Perhaps Caroline is more than a bestie after all. We know Caroline helped Stefan 2.0 control his bloodlust — and as of now, she’s the only one he trusts — but will these two be getting even closer this season? Now that Tyler is out of the picture, perhaps Stefan can help mend her broken heart because let’s face it, he could use some cheering up, too.
Regardless of whether this relationship stays platonic or turns into something a bit more romantic, we’re just happy to see Stefan and Caroline are such good friends again.
