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.

If you can watch this episode without crying, I seriously envy you. I just can’t. There’s something about the way he says her name after hearing her voice that makes me realize how alone he was. He was just so surprised she didn’t leave him.
Tyler Lockwood appreciation week- Day 3: favorite ship: Forwood
From star-crossed friends to lovers, their story is just absolutely compelling. Thematically they’re set up as opposites- sun/moon, light/dark, vampire/werewolf, optimist/cynic. They should be “mortal enemies” but instead built a relationship despite/because of those differences. It’s also funny how they are the stereotypical couple on the surface- the blond cheerleader/Sheriffs’s daughter and the football player/Mayor’s son. And they are so not together for that reason. LOL
I also like how unusual the power dynamic is in their relationship- Caroline started out as the one who was stronger, who knew more- she was the one tossing big, muscular Tyler around and calling the shots. He’s been in love with her practically since his first change halfway through season 2- she took most of season 3 to get to the same place emotionally. And they’re both comfortable with that dynamic- Tyler has admitted to knowing he’s whipped, but he’ll also tell her straight out if she’s being unreasonable. They treat each other with respect and love- pretty unstandard for a TVD relationship. And there’s passion too- it’s interesting that their love scenes are portrayed much sexier than the fuzzy romance of Stefan/Elena but less forbidden/kinky than Delena.
They’ve both grown as a result of being together- this is most obvious with Tyler’s story arc, but note how Caroline rejects all of big bad Original’s advances these last two seasons. Season One Caroline would not have- she’s grown too. And I can’t wait to see where they go next since they are pretty much equal in the relationship now- anybody else think there was foreshadow®ing in episode 3x03? ;)
CAROLINE & TYLER - “She’s been there for me, more than anyone’s ever been my entire life. I kinda fell for her. I don’t know how anyone wouldn’t, because she’s pretty incredible...” i love how they grow from friends to this incredible and strong relationship. they truly love each other, and they would do anything to protect each other. “ By breaking every bone in my body a hundred times for the girl I love.”
Tyler Lockwood Appreciation Week: Day 5- A moment that made you cry 3x09 and 3x22
3x09- mostly cuz I’m forwood and this was really sad for me…..but all he wanted is for her to support him like she always has been and this was the first time she did not agree with him and that hurt him so much
3x22 - Omg I cried so much in this it was so sad he was gonna die and no can stop it and watching Caroline cry like that just made it worse she was gonna lose the love of her life and yes I know It was Klaus inside him but I did not find that out till after and she did not know either
