He's spent most of the past few weeks moping, drinking or flirting with a shady doctor (stay away, man), but Alaric will soon take center stage a bit on The Vampire Diaries, according to Matt Davis.
"A lot more of his past will be revealed," the actor behind our favorite history teacher tells TV Guide. "Things that he's been struggling with will be purged and come into clarity for him."
The show is also planning a special Damon-based flashback for the March 15 return episode, which will be the first new installment after tomorrow night's "All My Children."
