As if Cassie Blake wasn't in enough trouble already, The Secret Circle's newest witch will be spending Valentine's Day with a few extra, ahem, people around.
The Secret Circle Scoop: Diana's new love, John Blackwell's arrival and the Balcoin child
While Faye (Phoebe Tonkin) and Melissa (Jessica Parker Kennedy) are tempting Diana (Shelley Hennig) with "Devil's Spirit" at their anti-Valentine's Day slumber party, Cassie (Britt Robertson) will turn to Adam (Thomas Dekker) and Jake (Chris Zylka) for help after the daughter of John Blackwell becomes haunted by the spirits of some vengeful witches — and by the looks of the clip below, those spirits are seriously powerful...
Who is John Blackwell's other child in The Secret Circle's coven?
While both audiences and cast wait with bated breath to find out, Circle's Shelley Hennig thinks the idea of good-girl Diana turning out to be the other Balcoin child would finally explain Diana's mysterious connection to Cassie (Britt Robertson). TVGuide.com pumped Hennig for scoop on who the other Balcoin child could be, as well as the arrival of Cassie's seemingly evil father, John Blackwell (Joe Lando). Plus: Sorry, Adam (Thomas Dekker), but Diana's getting a new love interest!
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:
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!)
