Michael Malarkey has been making our lives since he joined the Vampire Diaries cast as vampire badboy Enzo. He’s shared behind-the-scenes photos, impressed us with his smooth singing voice, and seemingly integrated seamlessly into the tight-knit cast. And now he’s sending hilarious tweets about tying co-star Ian Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore) up? We love him!

“Yes, I tie up @iansomerhalder tonight. No, it's not like THAT...well...maybe ever so slightly. #TVD,” Michael tweeted earlier today in anticipation of tonight’s all new episode of TVD. As Michael insinuated, Enzo will be taking precautionary measures to ensure vampire-eating Damon doesn’t succomb to his hunger while he is around. As we see in this promo, Dr. Wes and the Travelers have locked Damon and Enzo inside of a house, which means Enzo is currently Damon’s only available food source. Though Damon promises not to eat his vampire bestie, Enzo’s not taking any chances. (And we don’t blame him.)

The Denzo friendship has been a silver lining in the Damon-gone-wild storyline TVD is currently subjecting us to. Though we’re not thrilled that the show seemingly threw four seasons of character development out the window to demonstrate just how sad Damon was about his breakup with Elena, we have enjoyed seeing these two former cellmates hang out. We’re not sure if we buy that Damon won’t eat Enzo when he gets hungry — after all, he did once leave him to burn in Whitmore House — but we’re eager to see this play out.

Do you think Damon will eat Enzo? Do you enjoy Michael Malarkey as much as we do? Sound off in the comments below!

Catch the next episode of The Vampire Diaries on Thursday, February 27 at 8 p.m. ET on the CW.
