And so we say a very early goodbye to Mason Lockwood. Damon started a war with him, and while Mason had the upper hand momentarily, in the end he was no match for the Salvatores.
Caught in the crossfire is Liz Forbes, who learns not only that her friend and confidant Damon is a vampire, but that her daughter is as well. She initially tries to shun Caroline, but is won over by how awesome Caroline has become…just in time for her daughter to compel her for her own good. It’s such a heartbreaking scene.
