Sorry to say, but someone we know and possibly love will die in Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 9, “O Come All Ye Faithful.” We’re not sure if it’ll be a major player or if there will be some loophole (we can hardly think of a character who hasn’t died and come back to life at least once), but we’ll speculate on some of the likely suspects before Thursday, December 13.

Over the seasons, Caroline (Candice Accola) has become one of our favorite TVD characters. She evolved from a bitchy overachiever to a vampire with a heart of gold. Lately, some viewers have thought Car dipped back into her judge-y ways, but she has complicated reasons for disliking her BFF’s new guy. We just hope her ‘tude isn’t going to earn her a one-way ticket to the grave.

See, she’s been playing a dangerous game with Klaus (Joseph Morgan). Perhaps part of her has genuine feelings for the OV, or perhaps all her flirting has been in service of diverting attention away from Tyler (Michael Trevino) and his plots. Regardless, it’s working.

Of course, Klaus could simply kill Tyler for taking away his hybrid army, but don’t bank on the Original’s affection for Caroline to save her. For one thing, he’s already threatened to kill her once this season, and we saw how quick he was to take Rebekah (Claire Holt) out.

If Klaus decides Caroline has been trifling with his heart, it’s easy to imagine him ripping hers out. Literally.
