Following a truly shocking Vampire Diaries Season 5 finale, most fans will be focused on who was lost at the conclusion of an emotional hour.

But TV Guide has confirmed who's been found... for good:

Matt Davis will officially return to The Vampire Diaries as a series regular on Season 6.

SPOILER ALERT:

On tonight's episode, The Other Side officially fell apart - but not before Liv concocted a spell to bring folks back through Bonnie.

Alaric was one of the many previously-deceased who made it through. 

A TV Fanatic favorite, Alaric died on The Vampire Diaries Season 3 finale, but re-appeared twice as a ghost, most recently drinking with his BFF, Damon, on the 100th episode.

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.
