At the end of this episode, Elania crashes her car into an unknown man. That man gets up as if popping his bones back into place and walks over to the car only to flee at super-human speed.
I thought it might be Alaric, but
1. His ring only protects him from supernatural deaths, not getting ran over by a car.
2. Alaric can't run at super-human speed like a vampire.
3. Why would Alaric be in the middle of the road anyway?
So who was this guy and why was he in the middle of the road? And why did he approach the car and then flee? Did he intend to attack Elania?
