Previously on The Secret Circle, the whole show happened. Lots of hairstyle changes in one short year. We start the show proper at 7 Briar Hill. Jake is trying to convince Melissa that they saw Jake. She doesn't believe it's possible but Blackwell pops up and says that the demon may have kept Jake's body alive. Well, that was really just not offered as a possibility. And, if the way to kill a demon is to kill its host, what EXACTLY does it take to kill a demon? In any case, Melissa is kind of excited now, though Cassie warns her that he might be the Nick that they know. He might be dangerous and anti-social... which, is actually the Nick that we know. Is he still cute? That's what's really important here. Let's just keep it to witchy brass tacks. Faye says, bone dry, that Nick definitely seems more into massacring people than he used to. Melissa points out that he was killing witch hunters. Jake says that he acted like an animal and Melissa counters that he's probably scared and freaked out. Now Jake's the one freaking out. He screams that whatever that thing was, it wasn't Nick. Melissa says that it's not that black and white. Poor thing. He really screamed at her. She leaves the room and Adam reminds Jake that Melissa loved Jake. Diana moves to follow her and John tries to talk to her and she's not having it. She tells Cassie that she doesn't trust Blackwell any more than she did before. She leaves and John reminds Cassie that they need Diana to create the crystal school. He tells her that her blood (Balcoin) will help her find the last remaining crystal at the high school. He reassures her that he wants what is best for her and her Circle.
Next, she's at the high school, just walking through the halls. Great security they have there. She cuts her finger and the accompanying sound effect seems a little exaggerated, like maybe she wouldn't have had a finger afterwards. She starts to make the sign on the floor the way John instructed, when suddenly a girl in a sun dress comes stomping down the hall. Cassie looks at her. "Mom?" She has a crystal in her hand and she's looking for Elizabeth, Diana's mom. Then she disappears. Cassie tells Diana about the scene a bit later. She thinks that maybe together they could see more of their mothers. That just seems like SUCH a stretch to me. Something happened out of the ordinary, so you immediately leap to doing this other specific thing to make more unordinary stuff happen? Diana says that she doesn't want anything to do with dark magic and Cassie tells her that they only need her blood. In that case! She agrees. They'll do it the next night at the prom.
