There were a few Tyler scenes that made me want to cry but this was definitely the first one. I just found it so sad that even though his dad was a huge jerk, Tyler still cared for him deeply and was really upset that he was gone forever.
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.
Day 1 -Favorite Tyler moment - Tyler standing up to Klaus and what he believes in. After being used and basically turned into a slave, Tyler breaks the sire bond so he can be with Caroline and stop Klaus from turning Elena into a blood bag. Tyler had many great moments but I think this sums them all up. This is why he is the most herioc character on TVD, why he is the one that always thinks about his friends, his loved ones before he acts, even if he is under the influence of a bond that is believed to be unbreakable. I believe that love has turned him into a better person, someone who can do anything because he is in love and because he’s loved in return.
All my feels. By the end of “The Return” I knew I was a goner when it came to Tyler Lockwood. From just wanting more scenes with him and his parents in S1 to becoming completely invested in him as a character because of that line. What I appreciate most about Tyler’s character development is that he decided to make changes to better himself because it was what he wanted. He wasn’t initially motivated by anyone other than himself. Tyler was self-aware enough to realize that the person he was becoming was someone he didn’t like. Hated even. I love that Tyler made this decision as a 17/18 year old human, before he even knew about his werewolf gene; because Tyler found himself accountable for his actions, his behavior and his decisions. He didn’t need to blame it on a supernatural curse or use it as excuse to justify his actions. Tyler made his own decisions and he wanted to change to try and learn how to make better ones; and in his young life he has shown a higher level of maturity and self-awareness than characters who have lived for hundreds of years.
