The Enzo and Damon bromance is alive and kicking—in real life, at least.
The Vampire Diaries star Michael Malarkey almost got into a little trouble with his wife, actress Nadine Lewington, last week, and it's all because of Ian Somerhalder.
"One thing I can tell you is he gave me a hickey this week in Vegas," Malarkey told E! News at the iHeartRadio Music festival of his co-star. "I tried to cover it up a little bit and it's just kind of a hard thing to explain to the Mrs."
"We were just messing around in the photo op booth because we had a convention in Vegas," Malarkey said, referring to the Vampire Diaries convention that he and Somerhalder were attending. "Ian said everyone needs a little bit of Malarkey, and then he took a bite out of my neck."
Malarkey even made Somerhalder record a video for his wife, explaining that he was the one responsible for the hickey.
While the bite may have been a friendly joke, things aren't so friendly between the two vampires when season 7 of The Vampire Diaries starts back up in October, thanks to Enzo having buddied up to Damon's mother in the fight against the heretics.
"As far as my character goes, there is loads of good, juicier stuff," Malarkey teased. "My character will have a new love interest, so there is something on the table."
He also revealed that Enzo will be forced to make some "big decisions," and it forces him to reveal a softer side of himself. However, that doesn't mean the old Enzo is gone! Malarkey teased some "amazing" fight scenes that had him completely drenched in sweat.
"We literally ramped it up and juiced it up, so I am pumped," he told us. "It will be so good."
Fellow TVD star Kat Graham also promised a new love interest for Bonnie, but wouldn't budge on giving us literally any details other than, "I have one." Hey, we'll take it!
She did, however, give us all the scoop she could in the form of a few exciting-sounding adjectives to describe the upcoming season: "Hot, steamy, wild, violent, crazy, bloody, and stunty."
In other words, it sounds exactly like the best kind of Vampire Diaries season, and we can't wait.
The Vampire Diaries returns Thursday, Oct. 8 at 8 p.m. on The CW.
