“I know it wasn’t right but it felt really good”
The Secret Circle is slowly turning into a show full of dark magic, but Cassie Blake is not convincing in the role of a “Balcoin/Blackwell” character. The show focuses mainly on the fight of good vs. evil but I have begun to question wheres the fine line between each?? I mean for a moment I assumed that Dawn Chamberlain was the evil character and after she and Thomas Meade killed Nick and Cassies mom that was pretty much what everyone was thinking. But than came Diana’s grandmother and although she looked sweet and innocent she led blind and innocent Cassie to her death. So who can you trust on this show and who is actually fighting for the good and whose fighting for the bad? And where does Jake fit into that category? Cassie is powerful and she has bad magic in her but that doesn’t make her evil does it? I think Secret Circle has a bit of explaining to do with this. We, as the audience don’t understand because we are learning about everything right along with the characters.
Faye Chamberlain is a huge trouble sign. Her internal struggle for individual power is going to cause a lot of havoc. She has exposed herself to some cut boy that she is a witch and now she is on a mission to steal Cassie’s power from her. Once again I am not even sure if power can be stolen, because we were never introduced to the “rulebook” on the powers of a circle and the individual powers of a member. As much as I like the lightheartedness and comical relief that Faye brings to the show, I want to see her get burned for being greedy and trying to become the most powerful person. In this she endangers the whole circle.
Now we enter a sort of love triangle thats a little bit more complex than those of lets say One Tree Hill. Diana and Adam broke up but they are still friends and she still loves him. Diana is also best friends with Cassie and Cassie according to others is Adams soulmate. But Cassie likes Jake, whose supposably a witch-hunter and may or may not have evil blood as well (and my theory that he’s totally her brother). This might be one main reason Faye is jealous of Cassie and is trying to take away the one thing that is important to her. When Adam climbed up to Diana’s room though and she got so excited only to be let down by the fact that he came to apologize to Cassie broke my heart. Boys can really be so insensitive. Who are you guys rooting for? Jake or Adam? I am just looking forward to when the elders get wind of Cassie’s near death experience and then realize that magic has been exposed to the youth.
- Jake: You’ve got evil blood. Balcoin blood. The devil’s blood.
- Adam:You knew the witch hunter wasn’t going to hurt me cause you knew he was afraid of you. Why?
- Adam: What is evil power something you can pass down. What is it like eye color?
- Melissa: Your sensitivity to yourself is touching.
- Faye: Its always the short quiet ones you have to watch out for.
- Adam: Shut up Faye.
- Dawn: You think im trying to poison your mother.
- Thomas: Based on the fact that a few hours ago you suggested killing her than yes.
- Potion dude: Want to set the mean girl who stole your boyfriends on fire.
- Faye: No smart ass, we are the mean girls.
- Diana: Two rocks is code for can I come up.
- Cassie: Hmmmm complicated stuff.
- Grandmother: For darkness to be destroyed the earth must bleed it from you and you have to die.
The Secret Circle- Crystals
This weeks episode of the Secret Circle concentrated mainly on acquiring the crystals needed to take on the witch hunters. With a couple of interruptions along the way, the gang was able to get the Jake’s family crystal safe and sound. But the search for crystals brought along a couple of revelations. The biggest one would have to be that the “rumor” that Isaac told Jake when he was on the ferry a couple of episodes back is true, there is another Blackwell child besides Cassie. No it isn’t Jake and unfortunately it isn’t Faye either, although she was really hoping it would be her. Instead it was the one person that I would never have thought would have the capacity to possess dark magic; Diana. Her inability to breathe in the mine that was spelled to keep dark magic out indicates that she is the other Blackwell child. But what is the significance of two Blackwell children? Why didn’t anyone tell her? Why was it kept such a secret? I wonder why this whole time Cassie’s dark magic activated, but Diana’s didn’t? It can’t be because she’s a good person because Cassie is a sweetheart as well. But what does this mean? Well, the circle is now stronger than ever. Faye is going to be completely jealous since she never liked Diana to begin with. And its comical to see that both of Adam’s ex girlfriends are actually sisters. It also means that John Blackwell had way too many flings as a youngin’ and had something with almost every girl in the circle. Not the kind of father Cassie was expecting I presume. I guess its safe to wonder if Thomas Meade knows he isn’t Diana’s biological father. Could that be the reason why he hates Blackwell so much?
This new revelation comes at a pretty inconvenient time for Diana who has found herself trapped and suffocated by the circle. It seems odd that she’s the one thats fed up with always attaining to the circles needs when it is because of her that the circle exists. She convinced them all to bind the circle and strengthen their powers and now she wants out??? True, being a witch probably does interfere with ones love life and it seems rather hard to build a trusting relationship on lies, but one cannot just abandon who she is. Especially at such a crucial time. Which means Diana will have to make a decision, either she trusts her English boy enough to tell him her secret and let him be a part of her life or she walks away, at least for now. I mean she has enough on her plate as it is. Dark magic is not an easy thing to handle.
Which all brings us back to what Jakes grandfather told them. He insisted that the root of all evil was Blackwell and that he is the reason all of their parents died. He knew what the results were going to be but he lied to his circle and convinced them to take of the witch-hunters anyways. Seems as if this is what Blackwell is trying to get their circle to do as well. But can he be trusted? The source of this information isn’t all that credible considering that Jake’s grandfather could also be lying and have a mission of his own to kill everyone in the circle (the paper with every member of the circle and all their birthdays.) Or he could be telling the truth. One can never know with Blackwell and we see that he goes to extreme lengths to get what he wants. He had no problem watching Cassie’s grandmother die. Granted he wasn’t the one that killed her physically, he did play a big part in the process. It seems that although he is trying to help Cassie and protect the circle, he has no problem hurting her and killing any one that gets in his way. What do you guys think can Blackwell be trusted?
The Secret Circle- Sacrifice
I’m getting a little lost in the whole mess of things on the Secret Circle. If Ebon is trying to rid the world of all witches than why is he working with a witch and trying to achieve this with magic? He’s the one that frowns on it right? Seems like he’s a pretty big hypocrite. I also cannot seem to figure out what John Blackwell is up to. First he lied about not having magic, than he faked a curse to keep Adam and Cassie away from each other. Of course this was done with good intentions because he wants to keep the circle safe but lying to your daughter in the first place is a bad idea. Especially cause its been so hard for her to trust you anyways. Now we find out that he has attempted to unleash demons and thats the reason for the fire in the boathouse and the reason why so many people died. Yet Cassie still believes he’s a good guy and sure he comes off like that. He saved her from the demon and kept the circle safe with his power and has now become their “leader” in the fight to save the circle from witch hunters. But at the end of the episode we see him back at the ground where demons were just unleashed doing something that he obviously didn’t want anyone to know about. What is he up too? Is he really good and altruistic or is he going to turn his back on the circle?
The stress of magic is really getting to everyone in the circle. This week they all just wanted to step back and live a normal life, away from magic and demons and witch hunters. But unfortunately you cannot run away from what you are born into. That being said when the circle is in trouble you drop everything, take your “to-go” coffee and help. It might be rather hard for Diana to form a relationship with a mortal especially since a relationship will only work if it is based on the truth and that means she would have to tell him she’s a witch. I’m not sure how smoothly that would go over especially because you can never trust anyone in Chance Harbor. He might be a witch-hunter as well for all we know. Faye and Melissa let loose this weekend with a little flirting competition courtesy of Adam who actually needed to get his mind of off things. It is utterly tragic to watch Cassie and Adam, a couple that was so in love act like nothing ever happened. The change that has occurred within Adam is enough to break my heart. Cassie still loves him and although he knows he loves Cassie he cannot remember that feeling. Will enough time pass before Cassie falls in love with Jake or will Adam break through the potion and fall back in love with Cassie?
All we know is that the battle is just beginning between good versus evil. But which side is the circle on good or evil? In order for them to defeat Ebon and stay alive they need to be more powerful than he is now that he has unleashed the demons. The power lies within the crystals. If they find all the crystals and put them back into one they will be more powerful. The only problem is that as of now they only have Melissa’s crystal and from what I remember one crystal was used up and Diana’s dad has 2 crystals- his and Cassie’s grandmothers. Does this mean that the fight is going to occur between parents and their children? All we can do is wait till April and find out.
- Cassie: So now witch hunter are hunting you. How does that feel?
- Adam: I don’t negotiate with terrorists.
- Diana: Thats not an exaggeration, thats a lie.
The Secret Circle- Witness
Finally an installment of Secret Circle that head my head buzzing and kept me on my toes throughout. The writers relied on a form of “inception” to uncover the truth about the fire that happened years back that killed all of their parents. What they learned though was much more helpful than what they had pieced together through their family books. The witch-hunters were the ones who started the fire so many years back, not the witches. And John Blackwell never really died in that fire as it was presumed. That means that he has been around this whole time watching Cassie grow up? Why wouldn’t he intervene is some situations for example Cassie’s mother getting killed? I’ll admit the arch of the storyline is intense, they just have to back it up with a lot of facts and explanations, otherwise viewers will have to many questions and too many loopholes will be left open. If John Blackwell does return, it will be like opening the door to disaster. I can’t wait.
The drama lies within Team Jake and Team Adam and the tension between both of them is brilliant. Leave it up to the writers to leave Cassie in a state of confusion between two great guys, just as they did to Elena on TVD. Anyways, both guys are madly in love with Cassie and it seems like Jake proved this week that he isn’t only after Cassie’s power. He wants to help uncover the truth just as much as she does and its important that they do. Learning about history helps from repeating the same mistakes again. The event that occurred in “Witness” was mighty important to the progression of the story and for Cassie to get a hold of her dark magic and figure out how to use it properly. It also led her to that necklace left by her father that will further protect her from the witch-hunters. It also revealed to us that Adam’s father, Ethan, might not be the man we all thought he was. Dawn is a lying manipulative bitch, just like her daughter but at least she’s up-front about it. Thomas was a bully and always will be a bully, but once again he owns up to it. Ethan came off as this sweet, saddened, drunk father and now we find out that he was actually helping out the witch-hunters kill John Blackwell. Could it be because he was so in love with Emilia that he wanted to get rid of Blackwell? Does this mean he is going to be a potential threat to Cassie and that the scene in last weeks episode at the gym was only the beginning of a dangerous feud?
As Diana mentioned “I feel like the circle is falling apart” and that seems to be true. Besides for Cassie, Adam, Diana and Jake nobody else seems to be too interested in what is happening to the circle. Melissa hasn’t had much of a story line since Nick died, her character is very monotonous and not exciting. Bad girl Faye has her own life now away from the circle which involves her new sexy potions priest. Yet this new friendship of hers is going to put her in a lot of trouble. She is the type of girl that fears nothing and wants to try everything. When Cullem the drug dealer gave her that devils-spirit you could see that she was ecstatic on the inside. If Lee’s warning about his ex girlfriend was any indication of where Faye’s storyline was about to go then we are going to have one crack out bad girl attacking everybody. Her struggle for power will ultimately bring her down and cause her to suffer grave consequences.
But lets just go back to the boat house and the memories. Cassie is a very persistent person and she tends to break the rules just to get what she wants. That’s exactly what she did today, even kicking Jake out of her memory. While she was in that memory no one could see her, except for one lady who warned her that she shouldn’t be here. How could she have seen her? Why did she warn her? What effect is this going to have on the rest of the story? The most heartbreaking part of that had to have been Jake seeing his mother die right in front of him. I don’t think any child could bear to see that and stay as calm as he did. With this being said, Cassie stated that there seemed to be sides being chosen within the circle and some people sided with the witch-hunters and some sided with Blackwell? How will this revelation affect everything. This episode was great as it was an introduction and a set up to what is to come. Now I just hope that they flesh everything out in the same exciting mannerism as “Witness” was done in.
- Adam: And your an avenging angel now? Don’t they usually stay hidden in the shadows?
- Jake: Don’t you usually have a different girlfriend?
- Adam: There’s a council of witch-hunters? Are you their mascot?
- Cassie: He cares about me.
- Adam: You or your powers?
- Lee: Maybe because your circle skanks don’t want you back.
- Lee: Damnit Faye, I just cleaned up the place from the last time you thrashed it.
- Cullem: Except you expressed some interest and I am very sensitive to a pretty girls needs. Call me if you develop any more needs.
