22 Things You Miss About Alaric

The Vampire Diaries’ father figure is gone but not forgotten. In honor of Matt Davis’ birthday, here’s an ode to Mr. Saltzman.

2. His love for Jenna. (Whom you also miss.)

3. His bromance with Damon.

4. And the unspoken love between them.

7. His attempts at normalcy.

8. All stemming from his desire to be a good surrogate dad to Elena and Jeremy.

10. His laughable dance skills.

12. His appreciation of Ben & Jerry’s.

14. And his ensuing gay icon status.

15. His use of the word “dick.”

17. Really his mild alcoholism in general.

19. His ability to acknowledge good hair.

20. His bittersweet goodbye.

21. Specifically his SINGLE TEAR.

22. Every goddamn thing about him, really.

It’s OK to miss Alaric. It’s natural.

And don’t forget: he misses you, too.
