Later, Cassie shows the tree to Diana. She says that she's thinking of asking Jake to the fundraiser that evening. Wow. Sounds like lots of funds are going to be raised, what with all of these teenagers attending. Diana is going alone and says that singledom is empowering, when she's not desperately missing Adam. Ew. You're 16. Seriously?
Jake goes to the woods to meet the big boss. There are other dudes sort of spread out in the frame in an artsy and completely purposeless fashion. Jake tells the guy that Cassie is from the Balcoin line. Big boss thought that the Balcoin line had been eradicated, but they had just changed their name to Blackwell. The Balcoin line is like the origins of dark magic. So they are going to have to take care of Cassie in a different way. He says that Jake has feelings for Cassie, which Jake denies. Big boss tells him to stay strong because witchcraft has killed thousands of innocent people and they need to stop it. Wow. That's dangerous. He says that Jake is on the verge of redemption.
Cassie goes to Calvin's shop again. Obviously, he doesn't answer. She goes to Jake's place, where he says he's cleaning out some of Nick's things. He's distant with her and finally she picks up on it. Still, she asks him to the fundraiser and he says no. He tells her he's not interested and is really rude about it, but he's so hot that I'm thinking that having him be rude to me like that would completely make my day. Perhaps even my week. When she leaves, he thrashes his suitcase about, because he can't stand how hot he is either.
Adam's waiting tables and all of the girls are making googly eyes at him because he's a free agent. At least, that's Faye's theory. They always hate each other and I really like that. She tells him that she thinks Jake is up to something. She knows because he's acting engaged with his surroundings. I love that! Later, Melissa and Diana are working with flower decorations and Diana says that Holden is even cuter than when they were kids. Melissa puts the kibosh on that line of thinking. She tells her that Holden is not a rebound guy. Holden comes over and gets Melissa out of the way, ostensibly so he can spend time with Diana.
