I’m still not over it. I don’t think I will ever get over it. What a completely unsatisfying end to Tyler’s series long arc. I hate that we won’t get to see what his life is like now. My heart breaks for him. Because in his and Caroline’s last goodbye he was the one giving her hope when she had always been his source of light and optimism. He gives her something to hold on to.
Tyler has to leave and Caroline has to stay in Mystic Falls…her home…their home. Caroline still has her mom and her friends and their weird sense of life, but Tyler…he literally has nothing. No one. He will spend the rest of his life running, thinking about Caroline every single second, and it’ll kill him because all he wanted was her. It’s not fair.
Tyler and Caroline shouldn’t have had another goodbye or a promise of finding a way, they should have had a ‘finally.’ Finally we are free. Finally we can stop being afraid. Finally we won. Finally we can just be us.
I hate everything.
