Vampire Diaries Photos: Stefan and Caroline's Steamiest Encounter Yet

Vampire Diaries Season 6

One thing’s for sure: The tension between Stefan and Caroline on The Vampire Diaries isn’t going anywhere. In fact, it’s so thick in this new batch of Season 6 photos, you could cut it with a Traveler Knife.

No, your eyes don’t deceive you; that’s really a towel-clad Caroline talking to Stefan on the Oct. 30 episode, ominously titled “The World Has Turned and Left Me Here.” So how do Caroline and Stefan come to find themselves in this strange predicament? Per the episode’s official description, Stefan “shows up unexpectedly and needs her help cleaning up a mess created by Enzo.”

This little detour may cause Caroline to miss Whitmore’s homecoming festivities, but something tells me an afternoon with Stefan — “dick,” as he may be — will lift Ms. Forbes’ spirits.
