With one of the white oak stakes still missing on The Vampire Diaries this week, Stefan was forced to try and get its location from the only person who knew where it was: Alaric. Actually, only Dark Side Alaric knew where it was. Unfortunately, he didn't come out until Stefan nearly beat Alaric to death. He revealed that it was hidden in the cave where no vampires could go, so Rebekah took him down there to retrieve it. That's when the shocker came: it turns out that Esther had taken over Rebekah's body. Now that she has the stake - and a vampire-hating ally in Dark Alaric - she's determined to kill her children.
In the upcoming April 26 episode, it looks like Rebekah seeks Alaric's help in killing the Originals. But he seems very cagey when dealing with Damon. Is Dark Alaric here to stay now or is there a chance he can go back to the mild-mannered history teacher he used to be?
