Vampire Diaries Mystery: What Is Enzo's 'Connection' to Lily Salvatore?

Vampire Diaries Spoilers

After six long, complicated seasons, it’s fair to assume that everyone on The Vampire Diaries is connected in some way — but Enzo and Lily? Now that‘s a story fans need to hear.

Fortunately, that’s exactly what Thursday’s episode (The CW, 8/7c) is all about.

“We finally get to discover the truth about how Enzo was turned into a vampire, which is exciting,” Michael Malarkey tells TVLine. “We have a little flashback episode which delves into all of that, and his connection to Lily Salvatore.”

And you can bet that whatever Enzo and Lily’s connection is — some fans are already speculating that he’s a secret Salvatore brother, though I think that might be a little premature — it’s going to have a major impact on Enzo’s relationships with Stefan and Damon.

“There’s going to be this element of being torn by his friendship with Damon — who’s a bit of a loose cannon by the end of the season — as well as his friction with Stefan,” Malarkey explains. “It ends with a prospect of this connection that Enzo has with Lily and what they’re going to end up doing together.”

Enzo’s flashbacks are triggered by a conversation with Sarah, as she “turns the tables on him” and forces him to confront his past. But don’t start ‘shipping Enzo with the Salvatores’ great nice just because she’s getting him to finally open up.

“Poor guy’s got quite a bit of baggage,” he admits. “Getting into a relationship with someone might be a little forced at this stage in the game, but if there was even an inkling of that for him, it might be a grounding force. He could probably use a good woman to keep him from his wily ways.”

As for his soon-to-be-former co-star Nina Dobrev — I don’t know if you’ve heard, but she’s leaving the show — Malarkey says he’s “really going to miss her,” especially the “great energy that she brings to the table.”

So, TVD fans, it’s time to start guessing: How is Enzo connected to Lily? Were they *ahem* involved? Did she turn him into a vampire? This is The Vampire Diaries, which means the possibilities are literally endless, so drop a comment with your best theory below.

    A Descendent on Lillys side?He hasn’t been a vamp long so I doubt it’s much of a connection.

  2. Jennifer says:

    I think he’s her twin brother.

  3. A says:

    i thought enzo was older than damon by more than 50 yrs so how can he be damon’s brother?
    idk but i think enzo & lily might be lovers.

  4. Susan says:

    When we first heard of lily, it height that her and Enzo were Gemini witches (twins) and that is why the coven created a prison world. She was one of ther own!

  5. Kat says:

    I could imagine Lily being the one that turned Enzo as he’s been a vampire much longer than Stefan and Damon!

    • cathy says:

      yeah but when stefan and damon were young lily was supose to be dead how do we know she didnt cheat on damon and stefan dad before stefan was born bc he was like 5 or 6 when she was burried

  6. cat says:

    i think enzo is damons real father and thats why he and stephen do not look alike and also why Mr salvatore had a chip against damon bnecause he KNEW the damon was Enzos

  7. cat says:

    also i really think also that is why Enzo hates stefen so much because he was mr salvatores son

  8. Dayenzo says:

    All the comments are bloody cool.From being a brother to lily’s twin to being damon’s Dad!! can’t wait to see what they got cooking for enzo.However he is connected I hope it is good enough to be expanded to season7.They should also give him a surname and details on where he got his daylight ring cos according to The Originals its not easy to acquire one,you need a witch with the right spell!!

  9. it is possible that Lily turn Enzo into a Vampire…

  10. louis says:

    what the hell its going on with Enzo and Sarah? with Lily, Liv , and Elena’s story

  11. cat says:

    ok i want Damon and Enzo to be matwrnal twins that Lily was pregnant with before Guseppi, guseppi only let her keep one and sent the other one away they are Gemini twins and guseppi hated the supernatual in turn Lily hated guseppie for taking her other child… damon and enzo have a bond because they are twins… Lily and enzo have a bond because shes his mom. and enzo is jealous of stefan because he got to live with damon and lily

  12. cat says:

    also i wonder if Damon and enzo were gemini twins, if they both took the cure would they go back to being a witch and be able to merge?

  13. Cheyenne says:

    i think Lilly turned him into a vampire at the docks so when he woke up she was gone because she got put in the 1903 prison world

  14. Kaylin says:

    I thinknow they probably hooked up or slept together and both of them just can’t remember and she thinks that he is her son
