Eben is walking with Jake and makes him drop to his knees. He says that his usefulness has come to an end. Jake reminds him that they had a deal and Eben says that Jake's father said that, right before he slit his throat (which is why I wonder why all this fancy witch-killing stuff needs to happen if you can dispatch with them as easy as that). Suddenly, Eben flies into the air and is impaled on a branch in a nearby tree. The Circle, sans Cassie, is behind him. Jake asks who did that and Adam says that they all did. He's all, "You're welcome." I don't think Jake seemed particularly ungrateful at that moment, so Adam needs to cool his freaking jets. The Circle unlocks the iron that kept Jake's power in check. Jake looks up and Eben is gone, which naturally surprises Jake. Adam says that he doesn't KNOW how that happened, but they need to find Cassie right now. Fine, yes, Cassie needs to be found, but it's not exactly INSIGNIFICANT that the freaking witch hunter that you just impaled on a tree 30 feet or so in the air has vanished. That's a big deal.
Cassie is still killing her father and he tells her to fight the spell. The Circle shows up and tries to help Cassie stop. But, they need her help. Everyone has great advice about how to accomplish this. She needs to forget about what her body is doing and just think of the spell. Anyone wonder how they became experts? I wonder. Anyway, so she forgets her body and they're able to make her drop the branch and the fire stops. She runs to John but thinks better before hugging him or anything.
At 7 Briar Hill, Faye asks if John is really really evil. Diana says that he's not acting evil. Adam, always suspect of any other male in the area, says that he hopes they did the right thing by saving him. He says that he never saw his father so scared as when he saw John that evening.
Cassie is at her house with her dad. She asks him how he lost his powers and he says that it happened when the elders took away the powers of the rest of his Circle. He wishes it had happened earlier as black magic has taken everything important to him (Cassie, Amelia... that's it). He says that no one will ever believe that he has changed, but he's not the same man that he used to be. Cassie tells him that she destroyed the medallion, so he can leave. He says that he's staying because she can't protect herself now. She wonders how Eben was able to spell her if he's not a witch. John says that Eben's no witch, but he's staying in town until he figures out what's up.
