(Tyler) may be abandoning The Vampire Diaries, but he's still got plenty of work to do.

Tyler made the difficult decision to leave Caroline and begin his quest of revenge against Klaus. This can only mean one thing. Yes, Tyler will be making the move to The Vampire Diaries spin-off series, The Originals. Trevino had this to say about the future of Tyler:

A lot of fans are upset that Tyler has made the decision to leave as soon as he shows up. I'm getting a little bit of flack for it on the Twitterverse here. I just want to say everything will be explained, and I think Tyler will make it good once he shows up to The Originals... I think everybody will be happy with Tyler's reasoning when they see what he’s been up to and what he has planned.

Tyler certainly has his work cut out if he thinks he can take on the powerful Klaus. Trevino added:

Tyler's been dealing with Klaus for a few seasons now, and it's always a scary feeling. But you've got to think at this point, because Klaus is so powerful, that he kinda maybe deep down inside likes Tyler and likes messing around with him because it gives him something to do. Klaus is just so powerful, I figure he doesn't want to be bored all the time. If he had Tyler hunting him every now and then, a part of him might like that a little bit.

There's still no exact time frame on when you can expect Tyler to arrive in New Orleans. All Trevino was willing to divulge was the ambiguous phrase: "sometime soon".

What do you think? Are you glad to see Tyler making the move, or would you have preferred him to hang around in Mystic Falls? Let us know below.
