Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley) was really devastated after losing his brother Damon (Ian Somerhalder) when the Other Side collapsed in “The Vampire Diaries” Season 5 finale. Caroline (Candice Accola) is expected to be next to Stefan during this difficult time but executive producer Julie Plec teased that the blonde vampire’s presence may not be enough to fill the empty space that Damon left in Stefan’s life.
the night desk’s insight:
So many changes were made with the travelers storyline and the enormous consequence of their actions, that fans were left torn, upset and lost. We have yet to look at this as “what could happen next for those left behind” like Caroline and Stefan. They have always looked to each other for strength, but that seems to have developed into something more, much more next season. Without a doubt, Damon will eventually return now Alaric is back, but until then Stefan needs someone, and it looks like that someone will be Caroline. Do you think Caroline and Stefan will be great for each other?
