Oh, come on. I mean, am I attracted to Caroline? Sure. Do my days feel better when I'm around her? Yeah. Does she get me in ways no woman ever has? Indubitably. Do I fantasize about her? Yes, but only in two positions. Look, am I the kind of guy who would try to steal someone else's girlfriend? Sure, of course, but do I like her? The answer's no.
Caroline the life she was meant to have… an immortal life, without you.”
so let me process this whole phrase. The words which catch my eye are “Meant” and
“without you”, because bruh, yes, we all know that Caroline Forbes was destined
for much more bigger things than Stefan Salvatore, and things that Stefan
Salvatore himself could offer her.
heard Cade saying that to Stefan, I instinctively had a throwback Thursday to
January 2012, when I watched the scene where Klaus visits dying Caroline and
offers her the world out there that is waiting for her.
could let you die, if that’s what you want. If you really believe your
existence has no meaning. I thought about it myself, once or twice over the
centuries, truth will be told. But I’ll let you in on a little secret. There is
a whole world out there, waiting for you. Great cities and art and music,
genuine beauty. And you can have all of it. You can have a thousand more
birthdays. All you have to do is ask.”
back to Cade’s words : “Give Caroline the life she was meant to have… an
immortal life, without you.” – so this basically means that Klaus Mikaelson, knew
that Caroline Elizabeth Forbes wasn’t supposed to die, because she was meant to
have that immortal life.
knew it when he told her that he hoped that she’d turn up at his door in a
year, or maybe even in a century.
He also knew it when he left that message for her, “maybe one day you’ll let me.”
knew it when he promised her the eternal love back on her graduation day. His
words were absolutely intentional and he had analyzed his words in a way that
no one had.
knew it when he promised to leave and never come back because he also knew,
that an immortal life that she was destined with, with the plans that fate
had for her, she would be his - at last.
predicted her having an immortal life, and he knew that she was not supposed to
die neither in his hands, nor in someone else’s.
Mikaelson knew that Caroline was meant to have a thousand more birthdays.
Mikaelson knew that Caroline was meant to see great cities, and art and music
and genuine beauty.
Mikaelson knew that Caroline was meant to eventually fall for the person who is
only capable of doing terrible things, meaning himself.
these two scenes ( Cade’s phrase and Klaroline’s interaction in 3x11) parallel each-other on so many levels, that it’s hard to
believe that Klaus and Caroline are that golden.
Forbes was destined to have this immortal life not with Matt, Tyler,
Stefan but Klaus.
