Season 8 episode 2 of The Vampire Diaries saw Stefan and Caroline taking the next step in their relationship by getting engaged. But rumours are rife that their romance will not have a smooth ride as Sybil will take a liking to Stefan. Chances are Stefan and Caroline will part ways in the first half of the season.
Candice King, the actress who plays Caroline Forbes, revealed in an earlier interview that Stefan's habit of looking out for his brother Damon might also cause a friction between the newly engaged couple.
"Their relationship will definitely be tested," King told TVLine. "They have to balance some pretty adult things, in terms of Caroline and Alaric co-parenting these children and having this supernatural blended family. … Also, Stefan is so attached to protecting and saving Damon. He'll always choose his brother first, and that's going to be a really big thing for this couple."
The next episode is titled You Decided That I Was Worth Saving, and it will see an interesting interaction between Damon and Tyler. The latter was last seen in Moonlight on the Bayou, when he was locked up in the Armory. The episode will also see Bonnie caught up in the middle of a deadly game and she is forced to choose between Enzo and Damon.
Elizabeth Forbes is expected to appear in a flashback scene in You Decided That I Was Worth Saving. The synopsis for the episode reads:
As Enzo continues to fight the control over him, Bonnie finds herself at the center of a deadly game and forced to make a heart wrenching decision involving two of the most important people in her life. At the Armory, Alaric researches a mysterious artifact that he hopes will help in their fight to get Damon and Enzo back. Finally, Damon's downward spiral leads him to Tyler who attempts to talk some sense into him before it's too late. Stefan and Caroline also appear.
