I have had an outfit planned for this day for the past two years, and this is not it.

The Secret Circle - "Wake"

Plenty happened in this episode. We have a bunch of new enemies, a possible mole, a death, and the breakup of two major characters. We can't decide who is hotter: Nick or the guy they replaced him with. What say you? This show continues to deserve its slot as one of our top seven new shows this season with an episode that moved pretty fast. Our only complaint? We need enemies who are actually fearsome. The new enemies show potential. While recent enemies may be a threat to the characters, they don't scare us.

Nick is dead (there was a wake and everything) and this brings his older brother back in town. That means that there is still a bound circle. The Circle is bound to the family bloodlines, not the individuals. So Nick is out and Jake is it. Unfortunately, Jake has even more issues than his brother. Being mean to a girl who slept with him is the least of his complications.

Everyone hates Jake. Jake stole all the money from The Boathouse after Adam’s father gave him a job there. The Boathouse nearly had to close down because of it. Adam’s still mad about that. We think that if Jake is such a changed guy, as Cassie seems to think, he would save that amount up and pay Adam and his dad back.

Faye isn’t a Jake fan because he broke her heart back in the day. You don’t get to be a wise maneater by watching, we guess. So when Cassie lets everyone know that Jake is a part of the Circle, no one wants to hear it. Adam gets jealous when he sees Cassie and Jake being friendly with each other, and Diana sees this. Melissa is still mourning Nick, even though Faye would rather speed up the grieving process.

Grandma Jane goes to Dawn and discloses that their kids have a Circle. Dawn pretends not to know already, and then she crawls back to Charles and tells him that Jane probably has a crystal they can steal. If they get another crystal, they can power up their old one, find all the crystals, and regain their powers. Meanwhile, Grandma Jane gives Cassie her crystal and tells her to keep it secret, keep it safe.

A goth girl attacks Cassie in her home with this creepy cleaver-looking thing. The girl got some of Cassie’s blood. Jake heard Cassie scream while passing by, ran inside, and drove the goth girl out, with magic. Turns out, Jake knows goth girl, and her name is Simone. That’s such a goth name. Simone is a witch hunter. Jake went to Simone’s motel and took Cassie’s blood away from Simone.

At Nick’s wake, Adam’s dad, Ethan, gets drunk and feels the pain of both this loss and the ones from the fire years ago. Ethan tells Diana that she needs to let Adam go, because Cassie and Adam are written in the stars, and you don’t mess with fate. Diana actually breaks up with Adam (way to give up, girl), and then runs to Cassie for comfort, because she doesn’t have a best friend anymore. Jake and Adam trade insults at the wake and nearly have a physical altercation. Charles is reeling from the guilt of killing Nick.

Simone has a plan to kill everyone in the Circle, and Jake is in on it. Jake tells Simone that he won’t kill Cassie, so Simone attacks him with a knife. Cassie sees them fighting. Simone loses the fight. Cassie gets Jake to agree to stay in town for a while. The episode ended with Jake meeting this man who looks like his middle name is “Power.” They discuss Simone’s death and Jake accepts a mission to kill Cassie. This guy seems to be the boss of all the witch hunters, and Jake is one of them. Jake wants to avenge the death of his family members. Jake's witch-killing group is called "True Believers." Sounds serious.

Episode grade: A-
