Rejoice, Klaroline fans! Klaus and Caroline may not be on the same show anymore (darn you, TV gods!), but the odd couple was recently named the Hottest TV Couple of 2013 by HollywoodLife.com.

We’re not surprised by the win. After all, the complicated relationship between Klaus and Caroline was one of the only storylines that made Season 4 of The Vampire Diaries bearable. (That, and the return of Katherine Pierce, obviously.) And while we think Klaus has some redeeming to do before he and Caroline can ever have any sort of a relationship, we still want to see these two have some screentime in 2014.

We know Klaus is returning to Mystic Falls in Season 5 of The Vampire Diaries, and while the details are still TBD — when is he returning, and most importantly, why? — right now, the only connection Klaus has to Mystic Falls is Caroline. Their last encounter still makes our hearts flutter — you know, when he told her he intended to be her last love, “however long it takes.” So it seems likely that Klaus will return to Mystic Falls for the blond baby vampire, especially since Tyler Lockwood recently paid Klaus a visit in New Orleans.

And if he doesn’t return for Caroline, we’re still holding out hope the TVD Powers That Be will gift us with an episode Klaroline scene. There’s just too much unresolved sexual tension for there not to be! Seeing how Caroline is finally single (and ready to mingle), and Klaus is having a hard time with the ladies down in New Orleans, perhaps one night of whiskey-fueled passion isn’t too far-fetched.

We’ll just have to wait and see how things between Klaus and Caroline pan out. For now, let’s all take a little joy in knowing Klaroline was the Hottest TV Couple of 2013. Hopefully, we’ll get even more Klaroline moments in 2014!
