Restore and remove database

We previously had some of our databases mirrored with a witness server instance, however we no longer needed them to be mirrored and have since removed the mirroring. Now on our mirror server the database says it is Restoring...

What is the easiest way to bring them back online so we can remove them?
1 Solution
not sure you need to bring them back online to remove them...you can probably just do this:

use master
drop database dbname

if not, then you can do this

restore database dbname with recovery
drop database dbname
