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.


Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.
