My favorite characters who have died are Mason, Lexi, and Grams, I was really bummed when each of them died, so, this was awesome to be able to see all 3 of them again.
And yea, it was really sweet seeing Anna and Pearl reunited. As much sweetness and "happy endings" as we got in this episode though, I think we viewers are in for a really rough ride, these last few episodes (I assume it'll be 10 and a break as usual?)
And yea, Mama Lockwood, if she doesn't love Caroline now, she's a true moron. It was funny seeing Alaric play hard to get with Damon
