Steroline fans can rejoice as the relationship may still happen on The Vampire Diaries. During the summer, the show runners announced that it was not possible, but it seems that it may have just been a “not possible yet” hint.
It has been a rocky road for the two characters on the show. They were deal with the loss of Damon and Bonnie after the “other side” disappeared at the end of season five. Season six started four months later, and Stefan was refusing to talk to Caroline. The once best friends were now miles apart—and literally. Stefan had moved on to live a “normal” life. That life soon turned up on its head when Caroline and Enzo turned up and Enzo killed Ivy, turning her into a vampire.
Nothing can ever be easy on The Vampire Diaries, and Stefan tried to run away again. This time he left his new vampire girlfriend with Caroline, but she did not quite see through it. She made her feelings very clear that she wanted him, and she wanted him to stay. The character even admitted her feelings to Elena, also said that she “did” love Stefan, not that she “does” love him now. It was a hint that their relationship may not happen after all.
Right now, many The Vampire Diaries fans would just like to see the two be friends again, but they may see their Steroline relationship after all. Executive producer Julie Plec and actress Candice Accola, who plays Caroline, have both said that there is the possibility. Future episodes may see the friendship at least be rekindled, which may allow for something more in the future.
The fight between the two characters was expected considering Stefan upped and left everyone behind on the outskirts of Mystic Falls. They were both grieving and handling it in different ways. Accola admitted that it was just like real life. There are times that friendships are lost due to the grief, but it is possible for them to rebuild their friendship.
Caroline always had some sort of hope that Bonnie and Damon would return. She had the hope that if Damon returned, it would mean Stefan would return. Now they can see that friendship rebuild, and fans of The Vampire Diaries and their relationship need to be patient.
This is not something that will happen overnight. Caroline was extremely hurt by Stefan just leaving, and then him walking away. However, it seems Stefan realizes all his mistakes, and wants to make amends. Will Caroline give him the chance?
Some fans of The Vampire Diaries will not be happy. Caroline is a character who has gone from one relationship to another throughout the show. Some enjoyed seeing the platonic relationship, almost like they were brother and sister. There was no need to bring love into the equation. Many Caroline fans want to see her have a storyline that does not revolve around her love for some guy, while others want to see her with Enzo. However, it is possible that the Steroline relationship may happen on The Vampire Diaries.
