Cave: Mason holds up his lantern and looks at the cave walls. Damon asks what he's found. Mason: "It's..." He gets this funny look on his face. He poofs away, and his lantern crashes to the cave floor. Damon: "No, where'd you go. Mason? Mason?"
Torture Emporium: Lexi seems to sense a disturbance in the force, too. She looks down at Stefan and says, "He's still in there, Elena. You just have to break through." Elena says, "It's okay, Lexi. I know what to do, now. You can be free. Lexi smiles at Elena and then tears up as she looks at Stefan. When she looks to the ceiling, she disappears.
Town: Anna is walking down the street. She stops in her tracks when she sees Pearl. "Mama?" Anna runs into Pearl's arms. They cry as they hug, kiss, and disappear. Shut up. I am not crying, too.
Abandoned Mansion: The fire flares and sparks. The necklace is either gone or sort of a collapsed shell of ash. It's hard to tell what I'm looking at, here. Grams tells Bonnie, "You are stronger than all this. I'm so proud of you." She vanishes, leaving Bonnie with tears rolling down her cheeks as Jeremy stands in the background, impotent. Commercial.
Cave: When Alaric shows up, Damon complains that it's about time. Alaric says, "You didn't have anyone else to call?" Damon: "No, actually I don't. I need a non-vampire to get in the cave, and other than Elena, you're pretty much the only one I trust." Alaric: "Well, you have a crappy way of showing that." Damon: "Look, if Mason Lockwood can get over the fact that I killed him, can't you cut me a little slack, Ric?" Alaric says he shouldn't have to get over it. "I was your friend, Damon. You shouldn't have done it in the first place." Damon echoes the words of his earlier "apology" to Mason. "Well, sometimes, I do things I don't have to do." Alaric smirks. "You're gonna recycle that same crap-ass apology you gave Mason Lockwood?" Damon tilts his head, blinks and smiles. "Yeah, well, I didn't mean it with him." Oh why don't you two just make out? Alaric smiles like he's thinking about it and then enters the cave.
Torture Emporium: Stefan asks Elena what she's going to do. "Are you just going to stand there, waiting for me to dry out." Elena says, "No, I'm going to go home, take care of my brother, be a friend to Bonnie, and everything else I have to do." Stefan says, "Good for you. I was wondering when you were going to give up. Lexi gave you enough of a glimpse into your tragic future." Elena says, "I haven't given up, Stefan. I still have hope." She walks from the doorway back to his chair. "But there's nothing I can do until you get yours back." She then grabs his face and makes him look at her. "Hey, you can break through this. Fight for it. Feel something, anything, Stefan, because if you don't you're going to lose me forever." When Stefan just looks at her, Elena continues, "I won't love a ghost for the rest of my life." Finally! Does she mean this yet, or is she just faking it 'til she makes it? She walks out, locks the cell door, and heads off into the night.
