What’s a new season of The Vampire Diaries without some serious romantic angst? And, no, we’re not talking about Delena or Stelena. We’re talking Steroline, and it sounds like things are coming to a head for these two besties-turned-possibly-romantic in Season 6. What did TV Guide just tease about Caroline (Candice Accola) and Stefan (Paul Wesley) in the upcoming season?


According to the TV news outlet, “the tension between Caroline and Stefan will come to a head early on.” What does that means? It means that our favorite Care Bear is confronting Stefan about her feelings. Gotta love her direct approach!

We’re not sure how Stefan reacts to the declaration, but we know that we’ll be “surprised” by Elena’s (Nina Dobrev) reaction. Yep, Stefan’s ex and Caroline BFF will overhear the whole thing. Talk about an awkward potential start to a romantic Steroline relationship. But we’re glad TVD isn’t dragging out the whole “Who will tell Elena” angst?

On the other hand, maybe there’s nothing to tell. After all, we’re not sure if Stefan even reciprocates Caroline’s feelings. We’re guessing he’s still pretty emotionally raw following the apparent death of Damon (Ian Somerhalder). Though four months will have passed since the Season 5 finale, Stefan has been forever changed. What will that mean for his relationship with Caroline?

How do you think Stefan will react to Caroline’s confession? Share your theories in the comments below!

Catch the Season 6 premiere of The Vampire Diaries on Thursday, October 2 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
