It’s felt like forever since Tyler (Michael Trevino) has locked himself in chains whilst shirtless on The Vampire Diaries. But a hybrid’s got to do what a hybrid’s got to do, and the supernatural stud had to leave Mystic Falls to break his sire bond to Klaus (Joseph Morgan). (Funny, that’s the same excuse our ex-boyfriend used when we broke up.) But the mayor’s prodigal son will return, and thanks to E!, now we know exactly when.

Season 3, Episode 19, “Heart of Darkness” is shaping up to be quite the epic-sode. Not only is Tyler returning, he’s going to be reunited for some sexytime with Caroline (Candice Accola). Is this the end of Klaus drawing pony pictures and scribbling “Mrs. Caroline Mikaelson” on his notebook covers?

Speaking of love triangles, another one is about to “blow wide open” in that same episode. Yep, Sheriff Forbes, Mayor Lockwood, and Alaric (Matt Davis). Kidding. Elena (Nina Dobrev), Damon (Ian Somerhalder), and Stefan (Paul Wesley) have been hurtling towards something for three seasons, and executive producer Julie Plec teased more makeouts in the final few episodes than there has been all season long.

Start placing your bets on who will be kissing whom!
