There are not enough adjectives in this world to describe my love for Tyler Lockwood. He’s stolen my heart so completely that I find it extremely hard to express my love for him in words because nothing I can ever say can do my love for him justice. Tyler has had the best character development on the show by far. He went from this douchebag jock who bullied people for pleasure to a guy who would give up his own body just so other people could have a better chance at life. He makes mistakes yet he always makes up for them. He doesn’t expect people to just forgive him because he’s had a hard life. No. He goes impossibly out of his way to make it better, to fix whatever he screwed up. Let’s face it, Tyler has been through a lot. I can’t even name everything he’s been through ‘cause I’m pretty sure I’ll forget something. He’s a fighter though and that’s one of the many many things I love about him. He just does not give up. He always strives to be better, to do the right thing. Instead of turning into an even bigger bully than his season 1 self, he turned into a hero.
I love so many Tyler scenes so choosing just one was almost impossible to do. But this is probably my favourite Tyler moment not just because there was Forwood (swoon), but because you get to see that Tyler is guarded. He has walls and he wants to let Caroline in but he’s scared of getting turned down again so he wants her to make the first move. And I was probably reading into this a little too much but I felt that he wanted her to make the first move because he knew by this point in time that he had completely fallen for her (they had spent all summer together) and getting rejected a second time would hurt a lot more than the first time. So I love how he basically said to her, if you wanna be with me you can but you have to tell me that yourself. And because he put his heart on the line, he was rewarded and was happy when SHE finally kissed HIM!!
this is not a special moment that made me cry, but the whole episode. tyler has lost everything he had in one episode. one moment, he was a leader, an alpha, he had a mission, he was doing something good, something right, helping his friends, protecting people he cared about. he had his mum, being all supportive and proud of him. he had his girlfriend, a best friend he thought he could trust as hayley. he had a goal, something he could finally be proud of… and suddenly. everything disappeared. he felt betrayed by caroline, the only one he wanted on his side. he discovered the one he thought was his friend was lying to him, using him… all he ever worked for was gone. his pack. his friends. his hopes. his goal. he had nothing else but his mum. but klaus killed her. he didn’t want to kill tyler, but to make him suffer, to take everything away from him… EVERYTHING. and now, tyler doesn’t have anything left, but caroline who doesn’t seem to be fully on his side. that’s what makes this ep so sad.
So, in light of all of the TVD character appreciation weeks that are popping up all over the place (Stefan, Damon, Elena, Caroline, ect) We thought it would be nice to have a Tyler Lockwood Appreciation Week.

Omg this scene. Tyler could have easily just let Stefan or Damon come and save Elena, but he went ahead and tried to do it himself anyway. When Caroline was kidnapped by the werewolf pack, he hesitated. Now here he is, no hesitation, he saw an oppurtunity to set Elena free and he took it. Then Klaus comes in and he confronts him. Tyler is such a bamf in this scene. He confronts Klaus with so much honesty and bravery. Tells him he isn’t going to take his crap anymore… And that he really loves Caroline and that’s how he able to break this supposedly unbreakable sire bond. Klaus tries to tell him he did him a favor and he immediately calls him out on his BS. Tells him that he doesn’t give a crap about him and his obsession with hybrids just stems from his own loneliness. Then he helps Stefan and Damon dessicate him.
