The Vampire Diaries to Delve Into Alaric's Past

by at . Comments

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."

If you are sooo bored of the charachters don't watch! They have to show us where they came from and what made them the way that they are. These characters make the choices that they make because of their path in life the experiences that have made them who they are. These charachters are not one dimensional you idiots, they are multi-dimensional and complex. The more they show us about someone the more we become attached to that person. Revealing secrets is part of the shows allure!

I don't really care about Alaric's storyline. It feels too little too late and too much like a detour also for a Damon-centric flashback right now.
THIS. This is exactly how I feel about a lot of things they try to do, like Elena's supposed training(which was ridiculous already), which should have happened in season one after the first time she got her useless ass kidnapped. Elena has become downright unlikeable as a 'heroine'.
This. She is just empty, personality-less, character-less bland cardboard lamp post that gets absolutely no character development, nor character. Does not react to anything and her only plot revolves around tedious and boring DES romance.

C'mon this show has to have at least a few HUMANS, it cannot just be all vampires. Matt, Elena, Alaric and Sheriff Forbes are the only main ones. 4 people!!!!??? that is not enough.

Yes the ORIGINALS are AMAZING!!! every day when i see the word original from somewhere i immediately link it to the Original family LOL. i wouldnt mind an Alaric flashback becasue I like his character but i definitely want more ORIGINAL flashbacks!!! From way back in time to when they are daggered!!! Such epic, exciting, and interesting characters they are!!!

im happy to know more about alaric because in reality we dont and he kind of also is being stuck into plots as needed so to know more about him would probably justify and give reason as to why he is part of the storyline

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.

Damon

Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
