Did The Vampire Diaries' Alaric Saltzman just turn into the town's biggest threat?
For weeks, a mysterious serial killer has been targeting members of the original founding family. Thursday's episode revealed that a similar string of murders took place in the early 1912's and that one of the show's central characters, Alaric (Matt Davis), may be the culprit. Meredith initially suspected Alaric, which proved absurd to everyone else in Mystic Falls. However, after Elena read an old Gilbert journal, she deduced that Alaric could be the one unconsciously carrying out the murders because his ring could be cursed.
