Vampire Diaries Season 7 will premiere in fall this year and fans of the superhit CW series are eagerly waiting to see how their favourite character are doing post the Kai fiasco in season 6 finale.
By the end of the previous series, Elena Gilbert went into a perennial comatose state while Dr Josette 'Jo' Laughlin and her unborn twins murdered, after Kai's devastating return to Mystic Falls from the 1903 prison world.
Damon is devastated as he lost the love of his life for the next 60-70 years or until the Gilbert daughter wakes up from her infinite slumber, but Alaric is not as lucky as the elder Salvatore vampire.
He lost his true love and the two unborn babies. He is deeply wounded and there is no way he can get over the shock that his soon-to-be bride was killed while taking their wedding vows.
"As we break Alaric's story [for Season 7], we're thinking, "How would you actually feel if that happened?" executive producer Caroline Dries explains the devastated doctor's psychology to TV Line.
Dries also hints that the bromance between Damon and Alaric will grow as they both will seek comfort after losing their love. But the former history teacher will be a mess when TVD returns for season 7.
"How would you get over it?" And we decided you don't get over it. He's deeply wounded and he needs Damon, who also lost the love of his life, at least for 60 or 70 years. He's sort of the one person who can relate to him most. He's going to rest on Damon's shoulder, and we're going to find them growing up together in the premiere. There's no fix to what happened to Alaric. He's going to be a mess when he starts the new season."
This is not the first time the former vampire has suffered his loved once. He can be touted as the most unlucky character of the entire series. He came to Mystic fall in order to avenge the death of his beloved wife at the hand of a vampire but learns that she voluntarily left him to became a vampire.
Later he fell for Elena's adoptive aunt Jenna but she too died in a tragic accident. In season 6 his love Jo and their unborn twins died when Kai stabbed her during their wedding.
Fans of Vampire Diaries now wants someone to enter into Alaric's life when the show premieres in fall this year.
