Tonight, Enzo returns to The Vampire Diaries, so check out the latest interviews from Michael Malarkey discussing tonight’s episode and more! We’ll add more as they come in!
What would that reunion be like for Enzo if Damon does come back to the living again?
I think Enzo probably feels a lot closer to Damon than Damon feels to Enzo. Damon has an entire friends group and people care about him and Elena. Enzo’s just one piece of his past that meant something at a certain time to him, but for Enzo that’s all he has. He doesn’t have anything else. He doesn’t have any family. So for Enzo, Damon means a lot more to him than he means to Damon. You do see Enzo just hoping for that [reunion] to happen and I don’t think he can see past that.

“All romantic connotations aside, he considers [Caroline] one of his road dogs,”Michael Malarkey tells TVLine of Enzo’s relationship with Ms. Forbes. “She ends up getting swept up alongside some of the missions he goes on and, for better or worse, they pair up. I also think he appreciates her sense of tenacity and loyalty. Also, she just has this elegance which is also attractive to him.”
And should that relationship turn romantic, you can count Malarkey in.
“I’m all for it,” he says. “Candice [Accola] is just a joy to work with. She’s got a real effervescent energy, and I’d love to have more scenes with her, romantic or otherwise.”

Via Access Hollywood:
Access: How hard is Enzo going to be working [to bring Damon back] because this collapsed Other Side thing and where Bonnie and Damon are is really the big mystery this season, but you do play a very determined character.
Michael: He’ll stop at nothing to try to get what he wants. He’s got a soldier’s mentality, so anything he deals with, he wants it to get done and he’ll stop at nothing short of making out with people and killing others. So a bit a both.
Access: I’m glad he’s willing to go there. Is there any chance we’ll get some flashbacks with your character this season?
Michael: You know, I’d really hope so. I kind of have my own theories as to how he became a vampire and all that stuff and I’d like to see if the writers’ ideas are similar or not. I’ve talked to some of the writers about all this stuff, and I think they are keen to explore some things. Hopefully we can manage to squeeze it into the season, depending on where the storylines go.

Via Alloy Entertainment:
Alloy Entertainment: In the past, Stefan and Enzo have had some major showdowns. What’s their dynamic like this season?
Michael Malarkey: [Laughs] It’s exactly that! In Enzo’s eyes, Stefan is going about the whole Damon situation the way a coward would; he has run away from all his problems and coping with his grief. I mean, he’s even completely left town to start up a new life elsewhere. And as much as we can understand why Stefan would choose that route, Enzo isn’t too thrilled by the decision. So he addresses these issues with Stefan in TVD episode 6×02 and there are some great scenes between the two of them — very intense.

What about Enzo’s interactions with the other characters?
I think Enzo is 100 percent about omission. He comes from a soldier background so that is always something that’s ingrained within him: What’s the mission? How do I accomplish it? Who’s in my way and what can I do about it? The only people he’s going to interact with are the people who are directly helping or hindering his mission. You’re not going to see any scenes with him trying to chat up Elena in the bar or anything.
What about Matt?
There are some cool scenes coming up [in episode 3] with Enzo and Matt. Matt finds out through Enzo in a roundabout way who the people are who he’s been dealing with, some of the truths about these people, which shakes Matt up a little bit.
