Unbeknownst to Adam and Cassie, what Ethan thought was written in the stars was actually a curse between the Conant and Blake families, according to John Blackwell. After their night of passion and romance Cassie and Adam emerge from her house to find a flock of dead crows covering their lawn. Blackwell tells them they’ve ignited the curse, and they go to see Cassie's grandmother to see what she knows about the curse. Apparently someone in their circle will now die, but Dawn and Charles are hot on Blackwell’s trail and go to see her after, despite bickering they both still worry about Blackwell finding out their plans and using his power.
Meanwhile Faye tries to get to the bottom of where Lee has disappeared to, but his ex Eva scares her away by magically hurling her across the room, slamming doors and aiming a glass vase at her head. When she convinces Diana and Melissa to help her find clues, the girls end up in the back of a police car, but not for long.
Blackwell, Cassie and Adam warn the rest of the circle about what her grandmother said about the curse: once activated one of the circle would die! Cassie finds Jake looking worse for wear and realizes that the curse has taken effect on him. Blackwell finds a herbal elixir to undo the curse, but they must visit Calvin’s shop to find the ingredients. Jake is haunted by having murdered Calvin when he worked with the witch hunters, and when he Cassie and Adam hike into the woods to find a herb to complete the spell Jake’s hallucinations reveal to the other two that he killed Calvin.
Blackwell and Melissa prepare the potion and he affectionately tells her that she is very like her mother. Once Cassie and Adam drink the elixir they will no longer love each other, and only think of one another fondly. Adam resists, but it’s the only way to save Jake. They drink the potion even though it will ruin their love.
Faye goes back to Lee house only to encounter Eva again. She explains to Eva that because of the totem she has stolen her power, but when Eva realizes she is a witch she drags her to Lee body and asks her to help revive him. Faye knows it is hopeless to even try, so she tricks Eva and steals the totem, and breaks it, stripping Eva of her power.
Blackwell and Jake have a heart to heart, Jake can’t believe that Adam and Cassie would sacrifice their own love for him even though he killed Calvin. The next day Adam tells Cassie he no longer loves her and Cassie says she feels the same, but as soon as he has left she breaks down in tears. Blackwell comforts her, saying perhaps the spell didn’t work on her because of her dark magic.
When Blackwell leaves the house Dawn confronts him, and he admits that he still has enough power to trick the kids into believing the curse and killing crows, but not enough to protect the circle. He tells Dawn that witch hunters are back and are working with...a witch!
