The Forwood relationship has been put through the ringer so far this season on The Vampire Diaries. First Tyler (Michael Trevino) left Caroline (Candice Accola) all along at Whitmore College. Then he returned only to tell her he was leaving to exact revenge against Klaus (Joseph Morgan) — something Care Bear didn’t agree with at all. Now that Tyler is back in town and recently overheard that Caroline hooked up with Klaus in the 100th episode, he may be looking for a new girlfriend all together.

In Season 5, Episode 13 (“Total Eclipse of the Heart”), there could be sparks flying between Tyler and Nadia (Olga Fonda).

“Give me whatever will obliterate the memory of Caroline,” Tyler says to Matt as he walks into Mystic Grill. And when Matt reminds Tyler that he said he wasn’t drinking today, Tyler remembers differently. “No, I said I wasn’t drinking along today.” Duh, Matt.

That’s when Tyler’s glance lingers over to his left, spotting Nadia, who is nursing her own drink and putting on a good performance. “She’s new,” Tyler says.

“Whatever you’re thinking, unthink it,” Matt warns Tyler. “That’s Katherine’s daughter, and the psycho doesn’t fall far from the tree.” Unfortunately Matt isn’t quiet enough to not be overheard by the young Traveler.

Matt doesn’t seem to care that he offended the Petrova princess, reminding her that she did bury him alive in a safe. “I’m sorry, but I was trying to save my mother’s life,” she retorts. “And I failed, so if you don’t mind, I’d like to sit here and grieve in peace.”

“You want a shot?” Tyler quickly asks Nadia. “I want a shot. Let’s do shots.” Matt doesn’t seem happy to be invited to this little drinkfest, but it’s the stare that Tyler and Nadia share at the end of the sneak peek that really has our hearts racing.

Could these two actually hook up? What would Caroline think? Hit the comments and speculate!

The Vampire Diaries airs Thursday nights at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
