While reports on Caroline Forbes coming to ‘Legacies’ are gradually gaining traction, rumours are that she might take over the role of the principal of Salvatore school from Alaric.
Caroline Forbes is one of the most sought after ‘The Vampire Diaries’ characters for ‘Legacies’ Season 3, and, if reports are to be believed, she might be taking over the role of the principal from Alaric. There might be some good reasons for backing this theory. Here are some of them!
- Caroline is the brain and resource behind The Salvatore School for Young and Gifted
- Caroline can bring back the originals as cameos
- How would Alaric take the transition?
- Is Candice King ready to play Caroline Forbes again?
Caroline is the brain and resource behind The Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted
In all the seasons of ‘Legacies’, we have seen Alaric boasting that he has started school, never mentioning Caroline Forbes’ contribution. If you remember the beginning of the show, you would remember that both of them established the Salvatore School together to keep their girls, Josie and Lizzie, and other kids with supernatural powers safe. Not to mention that the school is located in the Salvatore mansion, the house of Damon and Stefan, Caroline’s deceased husband. That’s not all, Klaus helped Caroline with funds to start the school and keep his daughter Hope safe and comfortable. Therefore, if she decided to come back and claim her rightful status as the founder and principal, fans won’t be surprised.
Caroline can bring back the originals as cameos
Over the last two seasons, through multiple instances, we know that Caroline is in touch with Bonnie. We also know that Elena, who has become a human again, still lives in Mystic Falls. If Caroline becomes the new principal, it would be quite interesting to see if Elena and Bonnie also come together in cameo roles and witness if the former best friends still are as close as they once were.
How would Alaric take the transition?
So far, Alaric has been the one to control the day to day activities of the school. However, he has taken many wrong judgment calls over the last two seasons of ‘Legacies’, for example, sending problematic students to exile in the prison world, where Kai is. So, we can certainly expect better decision-making skills from Caroline. But the question that arises is how would Alaric take this demotion from his kids’ surrogate mother.
Is Candice King ready to play Caroline Forbes again?
Though Caroline hasn’t appeared in ‘Legacies’ yet, we have seen her mention it on multiple occasions. While talking to “Entertainment Weekly” in October 2019, showrunner Julie Plec said, “We have not seen [Caroline] yet. But, we are in talks with Candice for this, and she is game. It just has to be the right time, the right story, and the right moment. And surely, we will find it”.
So, will the right time be season 3? We have to wait till the launch of ‘Legacies’ Season 3, probably in autumn 2020, to find out. Let us know what you think about Caroline’s return? Which ‘The Vampire Diaries’ character do you want to see in ‘Legacies’? Tell us in the comments section below.
