Abandoned Mansion: Bonnie chants in Latin, while Caroline stands around, all uncomfortable. Wind rushes through the room. Oh crap, this is going to be one of those episodes where there are a million cuts back and forth, because now we're at...
Grill, Interior: Damon tells Alaric to have a drink with him, saying, "We've got trouble." Alaric, who says he has had quite enough vampires for the day, says, "No, you've got trouble. See, we're not a team. You tried to kill me. We're not friends. I don't like you anymore." I love how he's about five years old right here. Damon reminds him of when they were friends and conspired to kill Mason. Alaric is all, "Yeah, and?" Damon: "I think he's still a little pissed."
Abandoned Mansion: Bonnie chants. Things blow. Caroline freaks. Candles flicker. Suddenly, someone is holding Bonnie's hands. It's Sheila "Grams" Bennett. I guess the manifestation spell worked all right.
Grill: Elena rounds a corner as sees the newly manifest-to-her Anna, making out with Jeremy.
Downtown, Exterior: Stefan sees the now-manifest Lexi.
Grill bar: A now-manifest Mason grabs Damon's drink. Alaric sees him and hisses to Damon, "Mason." Mason says, "God, I miss whiskey," and takes a healthy swig. He then smashes the glass against Damon's forehead. After he yells, "Ow," Damon turns to Alaric and says, "Told ya." Commercial.
Downtown: Neither Lexi nor Stefan have any idea how he can see her, but Lexi is determined to take advantage of it while she can, and man, both the show and I need a new term for "off the rails." When Stefan says he doesn't want Lexi's help, she mocks him and says he says that every time. When he suggests that maybe she should listen this time, Lexi smashes his head against a car and knocks him out. YAY!
Abandoned Mansion: A tearful Bonnie sobs that she can't believe her Grams is here. Grams tells her there's no time for tears and then greets Caroline. Caroline may be a currently freaked-out vampire, but she's still a polite southern girl. "Hi, Miss Sheila." Sheila exposits that when Bonnie brought Jeremy back to life, she cracked open the door to the other side. "There's an old witch over here. She took advantage of it. She took advantage of you, honey. When you did that spell to send Vicki Donovan away, she wedged the door wide open, giving a free pass to anybody with unfinished business." Sheila knows all this because, "Witches talk, even on the other side. Who do you think makes all the rules?" When Bonnie asks what the old witch wants, Sheila says, "That's Original Vampire business, not yours. I don't want you getting in the middle of that. I'm here, because you upset the balance of nature and it's your duty to set it right. You need to close that door." Riddle me this, Grams. If the last time Bonnie tried to shut the door, she wedged it wide open, how do we know that this time, she won't blow the door right off the hinges?
