TV Guide has posted more of their interview with Julie Plec following the February 21st Episode 4.15 “Stand By Me”. She answers questions about Tyler, Klaus, Caroline, Bonnie and the upcoming Prom episode (Ep 4.19) .
Is there any hope for Tyler to return?
Julie Plec: Tyler had to leave in the same way Katherine had to leave. When Klaus puts his mark on you, you’re pretty f—ed. So we do not have any plans to bring him back until there is a resolution to his Klaus problem and with Katherine it took her out for two years. Tyler does appear in one episode [this season], but it’s not his “return.”
