Cassie notices early on that Jane is acting strangely. Melissa's cousin comes to town to play and it appears Diana has an old crush on him. Faye is still torn up about her grandfather being dead. Cassie brings Jake to the clubhouse and Faye is there and sees him take a fancy stone without asking. Faye vows to show everyone who he really is. Cassie and Jake find out that the papers Calvin gives her include her family tree on her father's side. No one asks why she doesn't use her father's (John Blackwell) last name. Jake goes to the big boss and tells him that Cassie's power comes from Balcoin, who was like the grandfather of black magic. Big boss says that killing Cassie is no longer an option. Cassie invites Jake to this maritime fundraiser thing and he says no. He says no and that he's not interested, which naturally hurts the poor girl's feelings. Faye recruits Adam to find out what's wrong with Jake.
Charlie and Dawn go to the fundraiser together. She's still trying to get the crystal from him, but he's not having it. Cassie wears the sickest dress to the fundraiser. Before she goes, she asks Jane about the John Blackwell family tree and she goes blank. Then, Jake shows up in a kick-ass suit and apologizes and takes her to the dance where it doesn't look like much money was earned. Diana dances with Melissa's cousin, even though Melissa seems to be attempting some sort of cousin block. Outside the fundraiser, Jake talks to the big boss who says that they are bringing Cassie with them and they are doing so that evening. He goes to Cassie and tells her that her ancestors are monsters and that she should come with him. She's furious that he has been studying her and refuses.
Meanwhile, Cassie gets a text from Adam that tells her that Jake is a witchhunter (he saw Jake talking to the big boss earlier). She tries to get away from him but the big boss and co. kidnap her and knock Jake out (he tries to rescue her -- sweet). Adam confronts him but Faye says he's being honest when he says that he cares about Cassie. Jane makes a remark to Dawn about how she was always obsessed with John Blackwell.
Jake, Faye and Adam go to the dock where big boss has taken Cassie. Jake distracts them with some fancy light bulb spell while Adam tries to free her. There's a fight, because Adam can't do anything without his masculinity being compromised, and Jake gets them off the boat. He leaves with the big boss, even though he just screwed up their plans to off Cassie. The big boss says that Cassie is not the only child of John Blackwell in the Circle! Dude got around. Does this mean that Cassie and Faye are sisters? Perfect.
I like how they tell the whole story of this show before each episode. Cassie is talking to Jane about the weird map thing that Calvin gave to her before he got killed. They don't understand it. Or, at least, the spell that Jane is under prevents her from talking about it. Jane says that she will check with Henry to see if he understands the document. Um... embarrassing. Yeah, Jane, Henry's dead. Cassie reminds her of this and Jane says that it has just been a stressful week and she isn't sleeping well. Cassie seems completely convinced. NEWSFLASH: you are a witch and apparently there are people far and wide that would like to kill you -- you've already gone on dates with two of them. So, those moments when things aren't feeling totally normal? That's because they are not normal. Also, Jane is a horrible actor. Sorry. It had to be said. These kids on this show act secret circles around her. It's like, "Hi lady playing Jane, this is not a Boniva commercial. Give it some life, please."
At school, Melissa (she's back!) is moping around the hall when someone calls out, "Hey emo girl!" Rude. She turns around, recognizes the guy, then calls him a jerk and hugs him. She asks him what he's doing there and he says that he's helping her father with some sort of party. Wait, Faye said that Melissa's mother took her out of town. Now she has a dad too? I thought all of the members of the Circle lost a parent in the fire? Step-parent? Plot hole? Anyboo, Melissa says that her boyfriend died. Diana walks up and remembers Holden, who is Melissa's cousin, from when they were kids. Melissa reminds Holden that Diana used to have a crush on him back then, which seems an un-Melissa-like bitch move. Like it, though. I think these two girls are fantastic. Diana seems a little like she's on the wrong show, but she's clearly got a buttload of talent. Melissa is kind of becoming one of my favorite young performers. Yay! And with the addition of Holden here, this show just reached the hotness saturation point. Double yay! Holden and Diana have a palpable thing happening.
Faye is hiding out in Dawn's office. She comes in and Faye says that she can't stop thinking about Henry. Dawn says that she's going to the fundraiser that evening, which bothers Faye because she feels that they should still be in mourning. She says that Dawn didn't care about Henry (true) and pushed him away when he was alive (true: especially if "pushing away" includes killing the person). Dawn tells Faye to not speak to her that way. I love that. That's the second or third time she has said that to someone on this show. Dawn says that her history with Henry was complicated and Faye doesn't know all of it.
