Is The Vampire Diaries preparing for wedding bells?
The CW show is wrapping for good next season, leaving fans wondering what will happen to their favorite characters. In particular, fans are dying to know if Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Caroline (Candice Forbes) will get a happy ending.
According to Too Fab, Wesley and Forbes were on hand during Comic-Con in San Diego last weekend and playfully hinted a wedding is in the mix.
“We’re getting married in June, you heard it here folks!” Wesley told fans. “We just keep hearing about this marriage in June and we don’t know what’s going on. We’re just gonna go with it.”
Stefan and Caroline have become good friends over the years. Last season, the two almost stepped out of the friend zone, but Caroline’s surrogate move put a damper on their romantic life.
However, the characters rekindled their romance by the Season 7 finale, promising more to come.
Meanwhile, the reference about a June wedding has long been rumored on the show. In fact, Caroline revealed in Season 1 that she would marry Stefan in the spring.
“You’re gonna wear a powder blue tux,” King told Wesley. “I’ll wear an orange dress.”
“Absolutely, like Dumb and Dumber,” Wesley agreed.
Although The Vampire Diaries stars were clearly joking, creator Julie Plec hinted that Caroline and Stefan might get the happy ending fans are hoping to see.
“We start the season in the fall, so that we can be celebrating Christmas by Christmas,” Plec shared. “We’ll just have to see by February if we get to June. I make no promises.”
“[Stefan and Caroline have] an opportunity to try to be happy, even though things around them are so chaotic and distressing,” she added. “[They] need each other now more than ever.”
Of course, there is also the possibility that Klaus (Joseph Morgan) will be back in the picture at some point in Season 8. Will he get back with Caroline and ruin her chances with Stefan?
“It’s absolutely possible. Without making promises that I can’t deliver on, Klaus did say he’s ‘the first love of your life, I intend to be your last,'” Plec said. “A lot has happened between that statement and the end of this show and a lot more will happen before the end of The Originals, but it’s not something we have forgotten. Whether we’ll deliver on it or not, I can’t say, but we are very much aware that that exists out there.”
According to TV Guide, most fans are rooting for Caroline to end up with Stefan. However, her relationship with Klaus could open the door for future appearances on The Originals, which isn’t a bad alternative.
Thankfully, fans won’t have to wait long before finding out what happens in Caroline’s love life.
CW 33 is reporting that Season 8 will start with right where Steroline left off.
“We’re only on episode 1, that’s the only thing I’ve read so far, and it’s hot and steamy right from the get-go,” Wesley revealed in an interview.
That being said, Movie News Guide is reporting that Caroline’s relationship with Stefan will hit a few snags along the way. Details about their issues are unknown, but fans can expect things to get tough in the course of the new season.
Hopefully, the pair can weather the storm and remain together until the end. If they do, there’s a very real possibility that a wedding in June will happen. For now, fans can only hope.
Season 8 of The Vampire Diaries will premiere Oct. 21 on The CW. The final season will be comprised of 16 episodes.
