The actress who plays Melissa has another gig or something -- she "left town" for this episode. Cassie tells the others that she thinks she stopped Diana from being killed by herself. Faye is suspicious of her. Everyone's suspicious of the fact that Jane hasn't returned from Henry's lake house yet. At the behest of the boss guy, Jake joins the Circle crew as they go to the lake house to look for her. Dawn is nervous when she hears Faye is going to Henry's, but she doesn't stop her from going. She calls Charlie and we find out that he's the one who has Jane, as if we didn't already know. Jake is nervous about the old papers that Calvin left in Cassie's mail before Jake killed him.
When they reach the lake house, Faye hears a little girl screaming. No one else hears it. Then, she finds we footprints that lead to a little girls rain boots upstairs, but she turns around and it's all gone! Jake gets all sexy with Cassie as they start a fire in the fireplace. Faye takes a bath and suddenly it is filled with mud and weeds, but then it's all gone! Later, they play truth or dare. We find out that Faye has only slept with two people. Adam asks Jake why he didn't get put in the Circle with the rest of them -- when Luke was going to kill them. He says it was because he was stronger than the rest of them. Faye and Cassie argue about the kiss that Cassie and Jake share (it was a dare!) and Faye runs out into the rain and sees a little girl in proper rain gear and starts following her. Cassie kisses Jake again in private (not a dare) but he stops her before things get too heavy. Diana and Adam argue about Cassie. They end up doing it in a shed. Cassie goes outside and sees the little girl. She finds Faye, who says that the little girl is her. She remembers the day that she last wore that outfit -- she had almost drowned in the lake and her grandfather saved her. She feels that the little girl is there for a reason. She tries to walk into the water, but the boys stop her. Cassie senses that something is amiss and puts her hands in the water. It starts bubbling and then Henry floats to the surface.
Charlie reveals to Dawn that he has Henry's crystal. They go to the clubhouse to look for Charlie's (Diana's) Book of Shadows. And, he finds it. Dawn wants to take the book away, but he refuses to let her. Things get tight between them and he tells her that he will do things the way he wants. Jane has been knocked out on sleeping pills for what seems like forever. Charlie says that he has always found her smug and self-righteous and dull. I could buy that. He says that he's going to perform a spell that will control Jane's thoughts and memories.
Diana tells Adam that they still aren't together, even if their boot knockin' was body rockin'. Can I get some action from the back section? Jake gets a visit from the boss man when he returns to his home. He says that someone killed an elder, but his energy is still active. Boss man says that they must strike now. The Circle needs to be killed immediately. When Cassie returns home, she tells Jane about Henry. Jane says that she never made it into Henry's house and just assumed he was away, but Cassie is suspicious because she found Jane's scarf inside the house. INSIDE THE HOUSE!
I don't mean to sound stupid, but I guess Nick is really dead. I'm sad about that. Adam and Diana are together and knocking on Cassie's door. Diana looks all uncomfortable, which is odd, considering the woman-scorned cloak she has been sporting is a PERFECT FIT. Adam asks her if she's OK and she reminds him that the last time she was there she was drugged, kidnapped and almost killed. Touché. Cassie answers and tells them that her grandmother is still gone and hasn't answered her phone. But, everyone else is here. She means Faye, who says that Melissa's mother has been worried about her and took her out-of-town for a while. Melissa has a good agent. Also, Jake is in the kitchen. Adam is pissed but Cassie says that he's part of the Circle, too. Diana is worried that the witch hunters will be coming after them again but Jake is all, nah, don't worry about it. That dude is going to have a day of reckoning that is going to hurt. Faye says that the hunters may have been scared by Luke going up in flames and Diana asks how that happened. Cassie reveals that she thinks she did it herself. Faye is PISSED at the idea that Cassie can do magic by herself. Oh she's pissed. She thinks that Cassie is a big phony acting like she doesn't know anything about witchcraft when bitch done gone FREELANCE. Adam points out that Cassie saved them the night before but Faye wonders if the hunters were coming after them in the first place because of Cassie. All of the crazies started coming out of the woodwork when Cassie came to town. Diana corrects her -- it all started when they bound the Circle.
Cassie breaks up the argument by pointing out a document that Calvin, the witch who only Jake knows is dead because he killed him, put in her mailbox. Jake is very interested. None of them understand it, but it includes the initials "J.B." which Cassie thinks means her grandmother, Jane Blake. She has decided that she's going to Henry's lake house to look for her and all of the others decide to go too. Fun! Road trip!
Later, Jake meets with the big boss and asks if he did something to Jane Blake. He says that, after the failed witch hunt, they've been forced underground. By whom, we don't know. Embarrassment? Seriously, we don't know. Big boss is intrigued by two elders being together. He says that Cassie is the only one in the Circle with dark magic. He says the closer he gets to her, the closer he gets to knowing how to kill her. Ouch.
Faye is packing and asks her mother if she has heard from Henry. She, ahem, excuse me, cough, has...not. At least not after she killed him. Faye explains that Jane went to visit him and hasn't been heard from since, and Dawn's all talking about the bad cell phone reception. Faye says that Cassie is all drama and wants to check on her grandmother. That's funny. Cassie should be so much more drama. She's entirely too laid back about things. If my damn grandma were the only member of my family left on planet Earth and she was missing and unreachable, I'd be a fucking basket case. Under the circumstances, the circumstances including an attempt on her life the night previous and the discovery that she has the ability to scream and make stuff explode and catch on fire, I think Cassie is a cool as a freaking arctic cucumber. This show seems so FOCUSED on its plot points that there is no room for organic reason. Dawn wants Faye to study for exams, but she persists. It's funny to think of Faye studying. Dawn watches her walk out and seems worried, naturally.
