I for one loved this episode! I was dying to hear some of the back story for the originals for quite some time and this was just the ticket to quench that.
I'm becoming a huge fan of Rebekah and honestly none of the story she told made me hate Klaus. So, he killed the original witch - his mother. And? I already assumed that much. Clearly, we have not yet heard the whole story so I'm going to reserve my judgement for a little while longer.
Stefan and Damon hit the bars for some bonding.. I'm starting to like Stefan for once! Damon is getting just a tiny bit cheesy but I doubt he'll ever be as lame and fake-sincere as Stefan used to be; therefore, unlike many other fair weather fans, I'm not concerned about that.
