When The Vampire Diaries returns for Season 4, the friendship between Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Caroline (Candice Accola) that fans have been clamoring for will finally be further explored.
"I always look at Caroline as Stefan's future [best friend] Lexi [Arielle Kebbel]," executive producer Julie Plec said during this weekend's ATX Television Festival panel, moderated by this reporter. "You've seen little pockets of a friendship spark between them, and I see Caroline in the long run of the series becoming that important in Stefan's life."
I’m on a Stefan/Caroline high right now. I need more of them on the show. Like, right this second. I just watched a bunch of videos and was reminded of why they are my favorite thing ever. They are one of my favorite pairings and they have yet to share even a kiss. Why do I continue to fall in love with couples that will most likely never happen? WHY!
Because they are perfect for each other.
Because unlike most of the characters on the show, they respect each other.
