On The Vampire Diaries, things may be tense (understatement) between Tyler Lockwood (Michael Trevino) and Caroline Forbes (Candice Accola), but -- in real life -- they’re part of one big happy TVD family. Check out the photo evidence of them hanging with Zach Roerig (Matt Donovan) and Olga Fonda (Nadia) on the set of Season 5, Episode 13 (“Total Eclipse of the Heart”).

“A little candid shot from tonight's episode of #TVD. Hope you all enjoy. (Spoiler Alert: Tyler's hitting the bottle again),” Michael captioned the Instagram photo of the four co-stars hanging out together. In the shot, they’re all snuggled up together on the couch behind the scenes of this week’s episode. It’s all very adorable.

Michael wasn’t joking when he said Tyler would be hitting the bottle again in last night’s episode. Tyler has been drinking his sorrows — and there are many — away since he returned to Mystic Falls, and it’s starting to make us worry. Hopefully, his efforts to uncover just what Nadia is up to and why she needs Matt will give him something to distract from his burgeoning alcoholism. We were actually kind of impressed that Tyler managed to foil Katherine/Nadia’s plan — no matter how briefly. After seeing how utterly ineffectual he was on his Originals crossover, we were beginning to forget he had skills like super-hybrid  hearing. Now, put down the bottle and put your superpowers to good use, Ty!

Is the TVD cast not the most adorable cast on television? Do you think Tyler will get his act together in time to help Matt out of this pickle? Sound off in the comments below!

Catch the next episode of The Vampire Diaries on Thursday, February 27 at 8 p.m. ET on the CW.
