Let’s be real: Caroline and Tyler’s last interaction (in “The Devil in Me”) was so rage-fueled and fiery that we worried these former lovers — and friends — might actually never be able to mend the broken pieces of their relationship. However, judging by a new preview clip from The Vampire Diaries episode 5×14: “No Exit”, they’re due for a reunion.
If spending time with your ex (who’s probably still belligerent over the fact that you slept with the sexy hybrid who killed his mom during the holidays) fills you with dread, then try doing it alone, face-to-face, just a few weeks after the two of you had a huge blowout fight! Naturally, because she’s Little Miss Sunshine, Caroline (Candice Accola) tries to diffuse the tension by taking a sip of her coffee and then joking about how it’s good but she’d prefer it with less awkward silence. Tyler (Michael Trevino), who’s clearly still smitten with his beautiful Care Bear, cracks a small smile and responds that a gal as chatty as Caroline doesn’t know what silence means. (Ha! #Truth.) However, despite their clear discomfort with the situation, Caroline and Tyler set their differences aside because there are more looming matters at hand. For example? Matt Donovan (Zach Roerig) has gone missing!
“I don’t know if he’s missing. He just hasn’t been home in two days — and he’s not answering his phone,” Tyler points out with a worried look. But not to worry, gentle viewers. No sooner does Tyler say this than does Matt come barreling through the front door. Apparently Matty Blue Eyes has been frolicking with Nadia Petrova (Olga Fonda) this entire time, and she feigns mock surprise at the sight of people inside his home. (FYI: He’s probably compelling too, but Caroline and Ty don’t know this.)
