Of all the gasp-worthy moments from Friday’s send-off, Klaus’ letter to Caroline — which you can read in full in my recap of the episode — easily elicited the biggest gasp from me. (If you’re a regular TVLine reader, you know I’m a recent convert to the concept of Klaus and Caroline’s romance.)

There's only one thing I really want from The Vampire Diaries finale: a Caroline and Klaus reunion. Sure, I'm excited about Nina Dobrev's return, but I would take a Klaroline moment over an Elena appearance any day. Though both Klaus and Caroline have moved on since their tryst (heck, Caroline is married now), I refuse to let go of hope that they may meet once again. And now that Stefan is human, there's a chance that Klaus will be her "last love" after all. While we're keeping our fingers crossed for Joseph Morgan to reprise his role on Tvd, let's revisit their passionate, devastating, and glorious romance. »
