"There's obviously been such an incredible tease of Tyler's pending transformation. He's becoming a werewolf, which happens to coincide with Caroline's transformation into a vampire," she says. "It opens up a very beautiful opportunity for them to have some kind of a relationship, be it a friendship or something more, just to have someone going through the same thing."
Tyler's already made out with Matt's mom, after all. What's a little ex-girlfriend action after that?
More than any new boy drama, though, Accola is most looking forward to the show's exploration of a few other areas of Caroline's life. "We're really going to get into Caroline's relationship with herself and her relationship with her mother," she says. "That'll take precedence before new boys. All of Season 1, the biggest thing consuming Caroline's life was whether she had a boy to love her, and whether her friends love her. In her breakup with Matt she realizes that she has to love herself."
