The Secret Circle: Season 1, Episode 10:: Darkness
This week on The Secret Circle (Season 1, Episode 10) Diana’s grandmother comes to town and discovers Cassie’s dark magic. Read Kidzworld’s recap of “Darkness”, which aired January 5, 2012, to discover what you missed.
In the mid season finale Cassie (Britt Robertson) was nearly captured by witch hunters, but at the last moment Jake switched sides to help save her. Cassie’s grandmother is away trying to figure out why she can’t remember anything, and Cassie is dealing with the knowledge that her real father is John Blackwell and she has dark magical powers that allow her to act outside the circle. Adam (Thomas Dekker) drops by the house, wondering why Cassie isn’t picking up the phone. He discovers her dark magic secret, but she asks him not to tell anyone until she knows more. Unfortunately Diana discovers him reading up on dark magic in the Circle’s clubhouse and figures things out for herself just as Cassie walks in to hear Adam spilling about her powers. She instantly gets angry and nearly chokes Adam to death with her mind by accident! The whole circle finds out, and Faye, who is jealous of her power, and Melissa who is still upset over Nick’s death, are angry with Cassie. Cassie runs away from the group to figure things out.
Voodoo and Dinner
Enraged by the idea that Cassie can practice magic and she can’t, Faye finds a voodoo witch doctor online who turns out to be a hot college student (played by Grey Damon). He performs a ritual to help unleash her power. Later Faye finds out he’s a fraud and tries to destroy his voodoo den, but he walks in and confronts her about performing a spell to unlock her powers for real (who knows where that could lead....remember it came out that Cassie isn’t the only child of John Blackwell in the circle!)
In the meantime, Diana comes over to Cassie’s house to find her lighting candles for an attraction spell to bring Jake back, which Diana warns against since he was a witch and a witch hunter. Our last glimpse that episode is of him lurking in her back yard and looking up at Cassie’s window!
Diana convinces Cassie to sleep over at her house, and her grandmother Kate, a powerful elder, is in town. Dawn drops by during dinner and Diana’s dad Charles is worried that Dawn will try to kill his mother by poisoning the wine since Kate seems to be on to their plans and doesn’t trust Dawn (it looks like he’s finally starting to not trust Dawn as well).
Death and Dark Magic
Diana’s grandmother sniffs out Cassie’s powerful magic right away, and tells her that there’s a way she can her rid herself of the evil magic. This is exactly what Cassie wants since she doesn’t want to hurt anyone. Cassie and Kate drive out to the woods and perform a spell that Cassie thinks will help, but it’s actually a spell to bury her in the ground and kill her. Adam and Diana peek inside her grandmother’s suitcase and find witch hunting material and run to Cassie’s rescue, only to find her blasting out of the wooden box the spell buried her in. Kate then tells Charles that trying to kill Cassie was the only way to find out the extent of her true power, and she is the one they have been waiting for to bridge the gap between good and dark magic.
