This is the relationship between the vampire Caroline Forbes and the human Liam Davis. Initially, Elena tried to set up Liam with Caroline in Welcome to Paradise, however Liam seemed to be interested in Elena. Liam and Caroline officially interacted at Thanksgiving in Fade Into You. After turning her humanity off, Caroline went to a bar where she hooked up with Liam and later on fed on him. She also compelled him to do several of her tasks, including performing surgery on Stefan's niece, Sarah Nelson, so she can force Stefan to turn his humanity off. After Caroline’s humanity is turned back on, it is unknown if these two reconciled.
