Matt Davis

Most Vampire Diaries fans want Elena (Nina Dobrev) to be with either Damon (Ian Somerhalder) or Stefan (Paul Wesley), but Matt Davis thinks there's room for a third possible pairing: Elena and Alaric.

"There's a lot of sexual tension between Alaric and Elena; you can't deny it," Davis told TVGuide.com. "I'm surprised he hasn't snuck into her bed already."

In this week's Vampire Diaries Bite, Davis shares more from the Atlanta set, including why the upcoming episode "Break on Through" is a huge episode for his character. Plus: Will Alaric will shape up, quit drinking and get back to teaching?

The Vampire Diaries returns Thursday, March 15, at 8/7c on The CW.
