Vampire Diaries: Is Tyler Lockwood a Werewolf?

Elena, unlike Sookie, is a little more intelligent, –and one of the first things that Elena realized when she first found out Stefan was a vampire, was that if vampires are real, then so are a lot of other things she never considered. Like witches; her friend Bonnie is proof! If you’re an avid Vampire Diaries fan, I have to warn you, before you go on reading:


We first talked about the possibility of werewolves in the Vampire Diaries, –also known as True Blood Lite, back in January. During an interview, Steven R. McQueen, –yes, THE son of THE Steve McQueen, who plays Jeremy Gilbert, brother of Elena Gilbert, was speculative as to whether or not he’ll be playing the werewolf. During the last few episodes, Jeremy has actually been trying to convince young vampire Annabelle to turn him, but once he realized Vickie wasn’t a vampire, he wasn’t interested.

In the book series, Tyler Lockwood, the son of Mayor Lockwood, is the werewolf. In episode 18, there are a few revelations as to what’s going on with the rather moody Tyler. He has the typical werewolf attitude, but according to the show’s executive producer, Kevin Williamson, interviewed by Entertainment Weekly, Tyler’s ‘inner wolf’ is better kept metaphorical…

“…and instead play out his aggression and daddy issues and things that are associated with a wolf without making him a wolf.” “[The werewolf card will eventually be played because] wherever there are vampires, there are usually wolves nearby,” notes Williamson. “My biggest concern is what the weekly special effect is going to look like. That takes careful preparation and a lot of money and some testing. We’re working on it now to figure out what we can do that won’t just look stupid. And they have to still be sexy — because, let’s face it, we cast these beautiful people for a reason.”

there’s also supposed to be a major death in this next episode, –even more major than Bonnie’s grandmother. According to BuddyTV, the safe characters are: Elena, Stefan, Damon and Tyler. The characters at risk for sudden death are: Matt, Jeremy, Caroline, Bonnie, Alaric, and Jenna. So sad! I’m absolutely on the edge of my seat here, people! And you know, -sadly on the edge of my seat, waiting to see who dies.


  1. In reference to the Vampire Diaries: Is Tyler Lockwood a Werewolf? article Steven R McQueen is the grandson of The Steve McQueen. The Steve McQueen died in 1980 and Steven R McQueen was born in 1988. His dad is Chad McQueen.

  2. Surely Ty’s a werewolf because of what we saw in 22nd(final) episode,his eyes,& Mayor didn’t get affected with vervain,so he’s a werewolf,
    I Love Vamps Diaries & can’t wait to watch season 2 even though still 4 month :S !

  3. According to the book, Stephen will find out that Mayor Lockwood and accordingly Tayler are werewolves..the Mayor’s great-great-great-whatever grandfather. He got
    that way by being attacked by a werewolf himself. And he passed his werewolf virus on Tyler and the Mayor himself, They never knew because it has never been activated…and generations of Lockwoods have lived and died ,but the virus was dormant in them because they didn’t know the secret of waking it up. The secret is that you have to kill and taste fresh blood. After that, at the first full moon you will change!

  4. if you look on episode 10 (the turning point) of the vampire diaries, there is another fight with tyler and jeremy. Tylers dad tries to make them fight outside but Alaric Saltzman (History Teacher) stops them. Then after the fight Jeremy tries to get along with Tyler by saying if thats what you have to go throught, i get it. but Tyler then punches him and Jeremy asks wats wrong with you?

    Tyler then says he doesnt know and there is a close up of a full moon behind him.
    its so obvious but noboby notices!

  5. I believe tyler is a warewolf, but I also suspect he might turn out to be gay. the director/writer just said that some one is going to be gqy or that they may introduce a gay character. I believe that Tyler and Jeremy could or should be gay. ( Jeremy Bi)

  6. tylers a werewolf because his uncle came in season 2 transformed got killed by damon and last thursday tyler finly transformed matt becomes somthing else not a vamp/wolf probley he’ll become an imortal human like jer and rick
