i want to know what moments people consider tyler’s “jerk” moments with caroline. and i’m not talking about when he had a legit reason to be angry/disappointed with her. ie when she lied to him about mason, gave up one of the hybrids to be murdered in return for a date with klaus, when he left her to get justice for the murder of his mother and try and break free of his abuser, or when he found about her sleeping with klaus,
like i know he lost his temper with her when he found about mason and everything following that was terrible, but technically they weren’t together then. and he acted like an ass when he was first sired (even though that was kind of out of his control). but i don’t think these are the moments that come to mind with people who say he was a jerk to her. or do they?
am i too much of a tyler stan to not consider these moments as jerky ones? they are like legit emotional reactions to some bullshit imo. he didn’t treat her like trash because he liked it. or because he wanted her to feel like shit. or to get back at her for wronging him. and 99.9% of the times he reacted terribly towards her, tyler made an effort to apologize and make up for it. i’m just ?? about this jerk stuff.
