We all knew that Alaric had been forced out of Mystic Falls by the Travellers spell, but this move will apparently throw him straight into the arms of romance with a new character!
According to Fashion and Style, Alaric will take up teaching in Whitmore College in an attempt to turn over a new leaf, but he will find a lot more than a new job to keep himself occupied.
Instead of focusing on his studies, rumor has it that the former history teacher will end up hooking up with Elena's pre-med tutor, Jo.
So, what do we know about Alaric's potential new Belle? According to the official character synopsis she is;
A tough and accomplished doctor at the university hospital. She demands excellence from her students and has learned the hard way that there’s no room for error in her profession
Reading into this description, it seems unlikely that Alaric and Jo will be spinning into a whirlwind romance as soon as they lay eyes on each other. Jo seems to be one tough cookie who's also a very professional woman, so it's unlikely she will take hooking up with a co-worker lightly.
Let's just hope Alaric manages to control his new found vampirism around the medical facility... The amount of blood lurking around there would be enough to send even the most seasoned vampire into a bloodlust frenzy!
What do you think of Alaric's potential new relationship?
