At long last, The Vampire Diaries is finally (yay!) back with a new episode this week — and it’s one we’ve all been waiting for (forever. seriously.)

So the big question on every body’s lips: What the eff is going to happen with Caroline (Candice Accola) and Tyler (Michael Trevino)? We want to see some vampire-werewolf action, please oh please!

We (and our odd couple) just might get lucky. The episode airing this Thursday, December 6, “By the Light of the Moon” is “Tyler and Caroline-centric,” according to E!’s Kristin Dos Santos. The two characters “are hitting a cave” together — a venture which is totes romantic.

Plus, there’s that whole full moon thing happening, which Michael Trevino teases will be a “scary ordeal.” Full moons def sound romantic, too — but we’re not so sure if Tyler’s transformation will heighten or hinder the character’s romantic tension.

And the stars are staying pretty tight-lipped about it all. When Kristin recently interviewed Candice and Michael, the duo managed to tactfully dodge her q’s — all the while dropping subtle hints that maybe, just maybe, this episode will be the one.

We.can.not.wait!
