First Look: Matt Davis on The Vampire Diaries

at . Comments

After a week off, The Vampire Diaries (thankfully!) returns with a new episode this week.

It's titled "Haunted," it focuses on Halloween in Mystic Falls and the holiday looks to provide an issue for new vampire Vicki.

We'll recap and review the hour in depth, as always, but we wanna take a moment to look ahead.

On the November 12 episode of the show, Matt Davis debut as Alaric Saltzman. The character is a history teacher that knows a lot about the town's unique, creature-based history.

Check out a couple images of Davis from the installment, as he gets close to Jenna and causes us to wonder what he's hiding...

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: 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.
