Got Forwood – Tyler & Caroline Recap – The Last Dance – The Vampire Diaries

Mmm, one week internet problems. The next week a crazy schedule with no free time. I definitely feel like I’m playing the blogging catch up game!

I figure it doesn’t matter if I’m a bit late with my Got Forwood recap for The Last Dance, since it set at a decade dance, which is all about nostalgia. Just think of this recap as around two weeks of nostalgia in the making!

So, let’s hop to it!

In this episode, Matt and Caroline dress up as Kennedy and and Jackie O, which hasn’t turned out to be foreshadowing… yet.

I choose to think that little hand motion by Matt there was intentional


Watch out Matt! If you’re not careful, Tyler will go all Bad Cop Tyler on your ass when he comes back!

We are shown that along with being a neurotic control freak on crack, Caroline’s defining characteristic is her incredible positivity.

And ultimate Caratt cock-blocker Not Now Dana makes a re-appearance and warms my heart.

We open up with Matt and Sheriff Forbes discussing the problems inherent in being double crossing a-holes.

Got Forwood – Tyler & Caroline Recap – Know Thy Enemy – The Vampire Diaries

Gah! I’ve been without internet at home for five days, the equivalent of blogger kryptonite.

Although this stopped me from uploading a Got Forwood recap earlier in the week for Know Thy Enemy, in many ways this has been a good thing.

Anyone who has glanced casually around this blog will know that I am a Tyler girl forever and always, so with all the time that has passed since the episode aired, I’ve been able to calmly and objectively consider every aspect of the Matt betrays Caroline storyline.

Right after I watched the Matt/Caroline scenes, I swung between blind rage…

 The Vampire Diaries : Caroline and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

… and muttering angry vowel sounds at my screen to feeling a little understanding for him. I mean, last episode, he had discovered that the girl he (presumably) loves is a vampire and remembered his sister Vicki’s claim that she had been attacked by vampires in hospital, and made the connection between the supes and her later untimely death. I honestly don’t know how I would react to this information.

It has mystified me how anyone could ship Matt/Caroline, because I actually think Matt is emotionally abusive towards her, subtly undermining her with back-handed compliments or even outright insults to her face and behind her back, and making her feel like a placeholder for his true love Elena. (This is really something that deserves to be expanded on in its own post). But I am pretty sure I would freak out too if I discovered my cheerleader girlfriend liked blood bags as much as designer bags.

Having said that, his betrayal of Caroline feels like an extension of his general douchiness towards Caroline. I don’t view it as something that exists in isolation.

As bm232 said at TWoP:

The problem with Matt and Caroline is not her vampire nature, or her lies, or Vicki (which Caroline had nothing to do with anyway), or the Council. The problem is Matt’s fundamental lack of respect and common consideration towards Caroline as a human being. Ergo I am not the slightest little bit interested in, or sympathetic to, his side of the story, only hers.

I have a feeling if Matt was still dating Elena, and Elena had been the one to drop this vampire bombshell, he might have given her the benefit of the doubt or at least not automatically assumed that Elena was involved in his sister’s death. I am very curious to see how Matt treats the Gilberts if Caroline told him absolutely everything that is going on in Mystic Falls, as was implied in this episode.

Caroline spends the whole episode running around trying to find Matt, who split from her house the night before after she confessed the truth about her supe nature to him.

It was an incredibly sad moment when she told Stefan and Elena: “You know, this wasn’t how it was supposed to happen. I was supposed to tell him at the right moment, in the right way, and he was supposed to be okay with it because he loves me.”

Got Forwood Rewind – Tyler & Caroline Recap – Brave New World – The Vampire Diaries


Fun fact: Candice Accola starred in a movie called Deadgirl back in the day.

In Brave New World, she becomes Undeadgirl when her Vampire Diaries character Caroline Forbes vamps out, raising my hopes that one day she and True Blood’s Jessica will form a bb vampire sorority.

Tyler Lockwood talks about what we call “spitting the dummy” in Oz with his uncle Mason, which is kinda fitting given the drool that puddles on my face during this  particular scene.

Mason is about as subtle as Snape or Remus Lupin’s full moon Boggart when trying to determine whether Tyler is a werewolf like him.

And we say hello to Papa Stefan!

All right! Let’s get into it!

Got Forwood Rewind – Tyler & Caroline Recap – The Return – The Vampire Diaries


If you’re like me, you’re suffering severe Forwood crackship withdrawal right about now.

Yep, this OTP is my favourite type of pop culture LSD, aside from MSG.

This = MSG (Music Sex God) Thanks Amy!

Have the cold sweats set in yet? Or perhaps you have offered Julie and Kev the first born of your first born in return for Tyler coming back to Mystic Falls, stat?

I think it is high time we had a little Tyler/Caroline rehab, in the form of Got Forwood Rewind.

Over the next couple of weeks, I’m going to give Tyler/Caroline-centric recaps of ALL the early season two episodes that I didn’t cover, so that we can all squee over them together.

It has a very Land Before Time feel…

I mean, we are going to go back to the time when Forwood unicorns didn’t even exist!


All right, let’s get into it!

Got Forwood – Tyler & Caroline Recap – The House Guest – Vampire Diaries


This scene happened in Vampire Diaries episode The House Guest. Only picture Music Sex God a little blonder.

Got Forwood – Tyler & Caroline Recap – Crying Wolf – Vampire Diaries

Last episode was a dark time for Forwood shippers.


And I’m not talking the good kind of dark, like Music Sex God in his Black Outfit of Lust.


(Seriously, I wish that this man could be cast as Klaus, because there is no way you could confuse him for an ordinary mortal)

SPOILER WHORE Got Forwood – Tyler & Caroline Speculation – Crying Wolf – The Vampire Diaries

 The Vampire Diaries : Werewolves Do It In Chains

These guys = Forwood mortal enemies

Spoilers and speculation abound! Matt fans tread carefully because I’m a Tyler girl. You have been warned.

Got Forwood – Tyler & Caroline Recap – Daddy Issues – The Vampire Diaries


Fun fact: when mummifying bodies, ancient Egyptians would insert a hook through the nose of the dead person and pull out their brain… in pieces. This was so that they could store it in a jar with the corpse in its tomb, along with the rest of the body’s internal organs.

Now, why am I giving you this disgusting history lesson, especially when this episode is meant to be all about daddifying?

Well, it pretty much describes how I felt tonight as a Forwood shipper, only it was my heart being removed… bit by broken bit. Suffice it to say I felt like I was down in that tomb myself with Katherine wearing a Magic Not Death ring and being used as her food source over and over, having pretty much the crappiest week EVER.



Put another way, it’s like someone eviscerated my Forwood unicorn when watching what went down between Tyler and Caroline in Daddy Issues (S02E13).

In this episode, we learn that Tyler’s intense black eyes become “more like gold with amber highlights” when he is really, really pissed in human form.

 The Vampire Diaries : Caroline and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Tyler does some potentially unforgiveable things that make you wonder if the writers want him to be ultimately redeemable or set up as the next major villain.

And you get to find out just HOW MUCH I want were bitch Jules to roll over and play dead.

 The Vampire Diaries : Caroline and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Might I suggest Damon do a little werewolf open heart surgery on her?

Got Forwood – Tyler & Caroline Recap – The Descent – Vampire Diaries S2E12


Got Forwood is a self-help resource for those addicted to the Tyler/Caroline pairing on the Vampire Diaries.

You’ll get in-depth coverage and analysis of Tyler and Caroline scenes in each episode, whether they are together or apart. I’ll also be working in completely unrelated Salvatoreo Moments of the Week for Stefan and Damon at the end, just because I can!

Oh yeah, and there will be a Spoiler Whore Got Forwood edition released each week, because I know that I’m not the only one who can’t wait until Thursdays to get their TVD fix.

The Got Forwood name was inspired by this gem:

Thank you, slightly crass Vampire Diaries marketing team, I couldn’t have done it without you!

Now, with that outta the way, let’s get into it!
