The actress said that her character's attempts to free Tyler (Michael Trevino) from being sired to Klaus (Joseph Morgan) will eventually be successful.
"Caroline and Tyler will be reunited," Accola told TV Guide. "Caroline is playing into Klaus's games so much at this point because she has her own game going.
"She's saying, 'Well if you really care, let him go, release him'. She's been doing her own work to release the bond back in Mystic Falls so we're going to see if that pays off."
Accola also said that next week's episode will see Caroline become a "mentor" to Abby (Persia White) as she transitions into a vampire.
"Caroline and Bonnie were gone [last episode] to help Abby with her transition," she explained. "It's taking a toll on Abby. We're going to learn about what happens when a witch transitions and how that differs emotionally.
"I love that Caroline's taken a note from Stefan (Paul Wesley) last season and has become a mentor for others throughout their transition."
