No, Bamon isn't happening, but The Vampire Diaries might have just introduced the next best thing.

In the flash-forward for tonight's episode, we got a glimpse into Bonnie Bennett's (Kat Graham) love life three years down the line — and, let's just say, it doesn't suck.

But it was a huge surprise!

Not only is Bonnie apparently getting treated for some kind of psychological problem after a clearly tragic event has left her in need of some serious professional help, but none other than Enzo tells her it's time for her to come back into the world because the gang needs her.

And if we were surprised to see Enzo show up to greet Bonnie, we were even more surprised to see Bonnie swoop on him with an excitedly passionate kiss.

That's right! Bonnie and Enzo are in love in just three years time.

But, back in the present, the two are at each other's throats, barely able to stand being in the same room together, let alone macking on one another.

Although, we did start to see the threads of attraction forming as Bonnie told Enzo he deserved someone better than Lily.

Oh, really? Maybe someone like her?

It's also nice to see Bonnie finally upping her guy game and going for one of the vamps. Of course, we absolutely loved Bonnie and Jeremy together, but it was time for her to move on. It's been long enough that, although we miss Jeremy, we're ready to see where Bonnie's future takes her. Or, well, now that we've seen her future, I guess we should say that we're excited to see how she gets to that future with Enzo.

Admittedly, we really thought it was going to be Enzo and Caroline (Candice Accola) all the way. Caroline usually does call dibs on those bad boys.

On top of that, I know you fans out there were really rooting for a little Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Bonnie action while Elena is playing Sleeping Beauty.

Unfortunately for the Bamon fans out there, The Vampire Diaries' executive producer Caroline Dries assured us that their chemistry would continue to simply be the friendly type. Plus, it's kind of exciting to see Damon jumping on board as Bonnie's sidekick as they take down the heretics. So, clearly, friends it is. They've even become drinking buddies! That's how you know it's friend love with Damon, for sure!

Of course, it's also important to note that since Enzo is with Bonnie, that means there's one less potential fiancé on the show for Caroline. So who is her mysterious future husband if it's not Stefan, Tyler or Enzo? Is the show planning on introducing us to a new character in the very near future? Or is Caroline's future engagement all just a setup?

The mystery is killing us!

At least the show isn't keeping us hanging with Bonnie and Enzo. Shippers, get your name ready. Benzo? Enzonnie?
