It all boils down to this, the moment we’ve all been waiting for: The Steroline Wedding.
The newly reengaged couple Stefan (played by Paul Wesley) and Caroline (played by Candice King) are finally walking down the aisle in the 2nd last episode! But as fans have come to expect, nothing is always what it seems.
This whole wedding is a setup in an attempt to lure the big bad, Katherine (played Nina Dobrev) – who now controls all of hell – out of hiding. All the guests are being compelled and the music playing happens to be Stefan and Katherine’s favourite song. Although this isn’t a legit wedding per se, the Steroline fandom can still expect there to be one hell of a beautiful wedding.
“It’s funny because I had heard about this June wedding for the first time at Comic-Con. I had no idea what everyone was talking about. I still kind of don’t really know what it’s about. But apparently, the fans talk about a June wedding. So when they first told me they were going to have a June wedding, I was like, ‘Oh, cool. We’re going to pay homage to the fans’,” said Wesley.
“If we hadn’t gotten married, it would have been a real twist. I thought once you dangle that carrot, we’re going to have to get married here. (Creator Julie Plec’s) way too nice of a person. She wouldn’t do that. There needed to be payoff,” he added.
Stelena will always be iconic, but Steroline has become the new It Couple in “Vampire Diaries”. Wesley admitted that Stefan and Caroline’s runaway success was a surprise for him.
“Stefan and Elena were the pair for so many years. And I never in a million years thought Caroline and Stefan would end up being, you know, that kind of — I don’t want to say true love, because I think true love can exist in many forms — but I never knew that they would be equally as powerful as a couple. So it was equally surprising to me,” Wesley explained.
“The Vampire Diaries” has promised that a major character will die before the season ends. Any guesses on who will that be?
