It's a lot to take in, which is why TVGuide.com turned to executive producer Andrew Miller to get the scoop on the finale. Check it out:
The Secret Circle's coven has followed one mantra for pretty much the entire season: Stick together! That's because if they don't, their magic doesn't work, the downside to binding their circle.
The Secret Circle Scoop: Nick is back, but what does that mean for the Circle?

The other Balcoin child on The Secret Circle has finally been revealed!
Upon learning that John Blackwell (Joe Lando) had fathered another witch in the Circle, the odds on it being Faye (Phoebe Tonkin) were favorable, especially considering her mother's crush on Blackwell and Faye's own affinity for the darker side of magic. But it was innocent Diana (Shelley Hennig) who turned out to be Cassie's (Britt Robertson) half-sister. Twist!

Now that Diana knows she's got dark magic in her, will she also go down the same slippery-sloped path as Cassie? TVGuide.com caught up with Hennig to get the scoop on how Diana will handle her newfound family, and how Charles (Gale Harold) will feel about the discovery that his now-deceased wife was unfaithful...
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:
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:

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!)
