‘The Vampire Diaries’ season 5 spoilers: The future for Candice Accola’s Caroline

Candice AccolaDo you love all things Caroline on “The Vampire Diaries”? Candice Accola’s character has been through quite a few traumatic situations in her life already, but now, she may have an opportunity to at least find a little bit of peace. Is she sad over Tyler’s absence? Definitely, but she is going to be in college during season 5, Klaus will by and large by absent, and she may be able to inject as least as much normalcy as someone in her position can (given, of course, that she does still carry with her a set of fangs).

So does Candice herself expect a major change to come along with being in college? Not entirely, given that she just told Wetpaint in a new interview that she expects season 5 to be almost a hodgepodge of the familiar alongside the new:

“What I find, it can be tricky sometimes for shows to transition into the college years. What I find very fortunate about The Vampire Diaries, and what has been going well, is they don’t go to high school that much. It’s kind of a running joke because you never see the kids in high school. So the idea of them going to college is not going to be that jarring of a transition because so much happens outside of the school environment. I think the girls are going to college, we’re going to find out more about Silas, and Stefan’s character. For Caroline in particular, I think it would be fun for her to go to college, and not think about Klaus. Be single for a little bit and see what she wants, like every girl who goes off to college.”

We can tell you that there will be at least one new guy hitting on Caroline this season, and that at least at first, we may see her have an opportunity to breathe ever so slightly. But this is “The Vampire Diaries” and not a college romantic comedy. The problems that these characters encounter will once again be severe, and as dramatic as they have ever been to this point.
