Vampire Diaries hunk Damon Salvatore may have been sucked into oblivion in last night's Season 5 finale of The Vampire Diaries, but his murder buddy managed to make it back from the dead. Will Enzo (Michael Malarkey) be returning for Season 6 of TVD?
If there is a TV god, Enzo will be back for the upcoming season of TVD. What did Michael have to say about the possibility? While we've still yet to get official confirmation, his tweet following the epic Season 5 finale certainly seemed promising: "Whole lotta love for this beautiful, talented family. Godspeed S6. #TVD," Michael tweeted this morning. Is that like a "good luck with everything" godspeed or a "hey, see you in Season 6" godspeed? For the sake of our own sanities, we're leaning towards the latter.
In all honesty, we think Enzo will be back. If TVD weren't interested in exploring his character further, then they could have left him sucked into oblivion like Silas or unexpectedly finding peace like Lexi. Instead, they chose to let him cross back over, which we believe implies an interest in continuing his story. And anyone who frequents Michael's Twitter handle could guess that he's keen to stay a part of the TVD family. (Because, really, who wouldn't be?)
Narratively, Enzo has been a successful character and quasi-villain in a season that has been uneven and seen the introduction of several ineffective characters — most recently bad guy Markos, proving the theory that the best TVD villains must have a British accent. It would be interesting to see where his character goes in Season 6. Will he choose to help the others in what we're going to go ahead and predict might be a quest to get Damon and Bonnie back? Or will he spend his time going on another vampire murder spree? That is, if he is even a vampire anymore. TVD seemed to keep the possibility of everyone who returned from the Other Side reverting back into their human state an open-ended question with Tyler's realization that he was no longer a hybrid. So many questions for Season 6! We just hope Enzo is there to find out the answers with us.
Do you think Enzo will be back for Season 6? Do you want him to be? Sound off in the comments below!
