Until now, Alaric (Matt Davis) has been known for two things: having lots of dead girlfriends and never showing up to teach history class without a hangover. The Vampire Diaries’ vampire hunter hasn’t done much staking as of late, but according to TV Guide, that’s about to change. The bourbon aficionado may not be involved in many vamp takedowns these days, but we’ll soon learn more about Alaric’s badass past.

“A lot more of his past will be revealed," Davis tells TV Guide. "Things that he's been struggling with will be purged and come into clarity for him." We’ll also see why Elena (Nina Dobrev) puts so much faith in her history teacher/guardian/coach surfer. If this helps Alaric get more involved in the action, we’re all for it. How awesome would it be if Alaric caught the murderer who’s been terrorizing the town?
