Christmas came a wee bit early, Vampire Diaries fans! This holiday season, TVD newbies — and bona fide hotties — Rick Cosnett (Dr. Wes) and Michael Malarkey (Enzo) have gifted us with a swoon-worthy selfie, and we couldn’t be more thankful. (Sure, Dr. Wes may be a psycho, but Enzo, you can stay.) 

And to make matters even more exciting, when Season 5 returns in 2014, Rick and Michael will be sharing the screen with Ian “Smouldy” Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore). And here we thought things couldn’t get any hotter!

But let’s be real for a second: how has Dr. Wes survived this far into the season? One would think that after he tried to mutate Elena, Damon would have given him a Whitmore family send-off. Of course, we’re happy to see he’s not dead (after all, the doc is easy on the eyes), but will the tables somehow be reversed when Season 5 returns? We know eventually, Dr. Wes, Enzo (who’s not dead either!), and Damon end up in the same remote location — here’s hoping it’s Dr. Wes who’s on the other end of the scalpel this time.

For now, however, let’s just enjoy this super hot pic of Rick and Mark. It’s Christmas, after all.

Catch the next episode of The Vampire Diaries on Thursday, January 23, 2014 at 8 p.m. ET on the CW, followed by an all-new episode of Reign.
