Can everyone just take a moment to think about the fact that they are married in real life
Can I just tell you why I love this scene so much?
…well I’m going to anyway, so sit down.
I love this scene, no adore this scene, not only because of the fact that Silas is directly invading Caroline’s mind to show her what she wants to see, but because they’re just taking a stroll together.
Caroline sees Klaus and instead of just having a conversation in the driveway, she just goes for a brisk walk in the woods with him. Away from everyone, away from distractions.
She’s asking him about his life and calling him out on the fact that he left without saying goodbye, even though she didn’t directly say those words. She’s still wondering why, if they were friends, he would just take leave without a word and only a voicemail.
Bottom line is that she took time out of her day to just go for a walk. She didn’t want it to be a hi and bye, but took the opportunity to spend some quality time with him. In her mind she’s just spending time with her friend and enjoying his company.
Just a little stroll with the man she’s grown to care for.
Just a stroll.
I don’t understand why people still question if Caroline has feelings for Klaus. She does, Caroline was called out multiple times in Season4 on her feelings for him.
Elena: I mean, maybe you should try to turn it all off. Who knows? You might stop whining about how Tyler left you. Added bonus: you won’t have to feel guilty about all the dirty thoughts you have about Klaus.
Elena: . And Klaus? I mean, let’s just say it: nobody likes a tease. Hey, I’m not judging. Might be nice to have a bad boy ruffle those perfect feathers.
And let’s not forget the Caroline/Silas!Klaus scene, that one is extremely important. Silas is able to read people’s minds, he knows their thoughts, fears, desires.
Caroline: Everyone said that you were gone for good.
Klaus: It’s true. But I never meant to go without saying goodbye.
Caroline obviously did not like the fact that Klaus left without saying anything to her.
Caroline: You don’t owe me an explanation. You’re moving on— by all means, go.
Klaus: Well, that’s just it, isn’t it? I never had any intention of moving on. The truth is, I’ve tried to stop thinking about you, and I can’t.
Caroline doesn’t want Klaus to forget about her, she wants him to continue to care about her.
Klaus: Come to New Orleans. What are you afraid of?
Caroline: You! I’m afraid of you.
Caroline has obviously thought about going to NOLA and being with Klaus. She has thought about being with Klaus; that she has thought about leaving her home, friends, and family to go be with Klaus. And that is freaking huge people! Caroline has thought about a future with Klaus, you don’t do that if you don’t feel something for someone!
Klaus: Wouldn’t it be more accurate to say you’re afraid of yourself, your darkest desires? Elena was right, wasn’t she? Deep down, you long to have your perfect feathers ruffled.
Do I really have to spell it out here people? Silas freaking called her out on being sexually attracted to Klaus.
So let’s do a quick review, Caroline:
- Is sexually attracted to Klaus
- Doesn’t wan’t Klaus to forget about her
- Has thought of a future with Klaus
Caroline does have feelings for Klaus. Caroline also has a desire to be loved and accepted, it’s why she bends over backwards for her friends, why she has such control over her vampirism, why she tries to be perfect, and why she has not acknowledged with words or actions her feelings for Klaus. As Silas said, Caroline is afraid of letting go, of losing control, of embracing her “darkness”.
I know a lot of people either don’t want her to or don’t understand why she needs to go “darker” in order to be with Klaus, why Klaroline has to be separated right now. It’s because while Caroline does have feelings for Klaus, until she accepts who and what she truly is, she will not embrace or explore those feelings. If Evie, Jenn, and I are right, this season we should see Caroline go darker, explore and embrace her vampirism more. And if we do see that then I think it’s safe to say that we will see Caroline on TO, and we will have Klaroline. So don’t give up in the face of all the Steroline/Jessoline/Kamille/Klayley bs that’s going to be thrown our way. We just have to grit our teeth and bear it for the time being, just keep in mind that Caroline has feelings for Klaus, Klaus loves Caroline, and Klaroline is endgame.
