We are really enjoying Dawn. Sure, she had a hand in the death of Cassie’s mom, but she’s really cool, together, and bad ass, not to mention she loves Faye. Charles told Diana that he is dating Dawn in order to explain why they spend so much time together. Dawn seems repulsed by the idea. Good for her. Charles is not her equal.
Sally doesn’t remember who pushed her onto the rocks, but she does remember seeing a mean look on Faye’s face right before she woke up. Henry really is dead. Charles helped Dawn move his body. The binding ceremony caused the Circle to lose their individual powers. They need two to tango now. With all six, they are at their strongest. Faye is upset, even though she is always with one of the Circle and could convince at least one of them to help her out.
A guy named Luke asks Cassie to the school dance shortly after meeting her. Note to guys: Unless you are super hot and charming, you should talk to the girl/at least pretend to get to know her about twice before you ask her out. Remember, third meeting is the charm. You don’t want to wait too long either. Lots of guys make that mistake. Cassie agreed to go with Luke though.
A man named Zachary who knew the Circle’s parents ran into Cassie and started questioning her about all the witchcraft. He says that her mother would never want her to live in this town and that he knows she’s a witch. Diana shows up and Cassie is able to push him away. He says, “It can’t happen again” ominously before he leaves. Later, he scares Faye at the abandoned house.
All the kids go to the dance and Cassie tells Luke that she had no friends at her old school. Way to be honest on a date, Cassie. Melissa is finally fed up with Nick being a jerk to her after he makes her feel like an idiot at the dance. No one is dancing, so Sally grabs Adam and Cassie, who are talking and forces them too in an obvious move on the show’s part to get them to share an awkward, yet romantic moment. Faye shows up at the dance and tells them that she was chased by Zachary.
Charles finds Zachary, who monologues a bit and gives us the following info: Amelia used to be friends with him and his girlfriend, Heather, but she pushed them away as she got deeper into magic. Then something really bad happened to Heather because of all the witchcraft. Zachary defeats Charlie in a fight, says he only needs to kill one of the Circle, and sets off to do that.
Cassie leaves her date alone for most of the dance, and Luke calls her on it and leaves. Faye tells Nick to treat Melissa better. Faye and her mother are our favorite characters, even if it is a touch annoying that Faye’s Australian accent creeps out OFTEN. Leeard was the first to notice this, and now it’s glaringly obvious to both of us.
Zachary arrives at the school and tries to kill Cassie in the hall, but the rest of the Circle shows up and knocks him out by tossing his body onto the ceiling and then onto the floor. Dawn shows up and they say, “Oh, he’s a vandal and he slipped on some papers.” Dawn pretends to believe this and says that she will take care of it. The kids leave the dance, and Nick asks Melissa if she wants to come over and watch a movie, rather than just pleasure him sexually. Faye looks on, sadly. She must love Nick a little. Or Melissa.
Diana and Cassie talk about Adam, and Cassie assures Diana that she won’t steal her boyfriend. Awesome Dawn puts Zachary in her trunk. She drives him far away, marks him like he’s Cain, and says that now she will be able to find him wherever he is. She says that if he ever even looks at any of the children again, she will find him and give him a fate worse than Heather’s.
This was another good episode, but it didn’t seem to further much, unless we see Zachary again/he’s important. One thing we don’t enjoy: How everyone on the CW has obvious full makeup on when they first wake up in bed. It looked like Diana had both fake eyelashes and lipgloss. They would still look pretty with a natural look, show. Elena Gilbert is another common culprit of this annoyance.
