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. 

You know that saying “You mess with the bull, you get the horns?” Well, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) is the bull in this analogy, and Tyler (Michael Trevino) is the one waving a red cape. These two hybrids are on a collision course, and now Tyler has an un-sired army of his own.

Frankly, it was a tad eerie when the hybrids were bowing down to Tyler like he was King In the North or something. The power could go to his head. “Tonight, we’re taking out Klaus and setting you free,” he says in the promo. Not only do we expect the OV not to be on board with this, Stefan (Paul Wesley) seems to have a problem with it and even Caroline (Candice Accola) doesn’t look happy with her BF.

Simply based on his new profession (starting revolutions), we’d say Tyler is a pretty good candidate for an early demise. Of course, there’s some strange 12-hybrid quota Professor Shane (David Alpay) is anxious to fulfill, so if one of Tyler’s friends gets killed, Bonnie’s (Kat Graham) magic mentor will have an interest in keeping Tyler alive.

What do you think Tyler’s chances of survival are?
