It's the moment The Secret Circle fans have been waiting for since the new CW series premiered: Cassie's father, the mysterious John Blackwell, is coming to Chance Harbor...
The Secret Circle returned last week with a near death for Cassie, a failed attempt by Faye to regain power and the last-minute return of Jake. Left with burning questions, TVGuide.com chatted with star Britt Robertson who filled us in on Cassie's newly discovered dark side, her readiness for love and how this next chapter will delve into the Chance Harbor circle of 16 years earlier.
Behind on The Secret Circle? Here's what you missed:
Cassie returned to Chance Harbor and discovered she's a witch in a coven. The teenage coven bound themselves together and accidentally released a demon. Said demon inhabited Nick, who was then murdered. His brother Jake took his place in the circle, but he was secretly working with witch hunters to take down the circle. The hunters kidnapped Cassie, who discovered she's full of dark magic. Cassie and the circle escaped their terrible fate, though unbeknownst to them, someone in the coven is related to Cassie and has dark magic as well!
Now let's find out what's next from executive producer Andrew Miller:

The Secret Circle's midseason finale dropped one heck of a bomb: Cassie (Britt Robertson) is not the only...
Britt Robertson and Chris Zylka
It seems like only yesterday Cassie Blake (Britt Robertson) was forced to move to Chance Harbor. Now, The Secret Circle is preparing to go on hiatus until January — but not without a sendoff that will leave audiences clamoring for the freshman CW series to return more quickly.
The Secret Circle's Britt Robertson dishes on the mystery of John Blackwell
Let's recap where the circle has been since Cassie arrived: With the new addition, the secret coven decided to bind their circle to prevent their powers from spiraling out of control (See: Faye's run-in with Sally), but that put them in even more danger. The group was hunted down by Amelia's vengeful friend, and possessed by once-trapped demons (RIP Nick). Most-recently, the witch hunters, who Jake (Chris Zylka) has secretly been working for, have been attempting to kill them, too. The dark magic within Cassie afforded the group an escape from certain death, but has now made her a target of the witch hunters.
Now that you're all caught up, here are seven quick spoilers from the midseason finale:

The Secret Circle's Cassie is taking a walk on the evil side.
As Cassie (Britt Robertson) begins to discover more about who the mysterious "J.B." is, she and the coven go to the lake house in search of Cassie's grandmother. TVGuide.com was on set for the circle's trip to the house, which includes a rousing game of truth or dare — including a certain smooch you may have already spied in the promos. Their journey is not all fun and games, though, as Robertson says this episode will take a dark turn. (And we all know what happened last time The Secret Circle took a dark turn. RIP, Nick!)

And here we thought Nick was the resident bad boy of The Secret Circle...
Last week's arrival of his brother, Jake (Chris Zylka), signaled a new danger for the coven. Although they've been reluctantly trying to recruit this new Armstrong brother to replace the dearly departed Nick (RIP!), little do they know that it's actually Jake who has brought the witch hunters to Chance Harbor!

The Secret Circle
The Secret Circle's circle is broken.
Tragedy struck Chance Harbor when Charles (Gale Harold) was forced to drown Nick (Louis Hunter) in order to kill the demon that had possessed him. More unnerving than his untimely demise is that Nick was a character who not only survived the L.J. Smith novels the series is based on, but also eventually found romance with Cassie.
