Why Witches Should Sleep With Earplugs

The Secret Circle - "Heather"

Well, that was just hilarious. The demons on this show are just like the wormy little aliens in the movies where people become alien zombies. Nick and Melissa have grown stronger by the end of the episode, and Nick is trying to be a good guy. Faye is the douchebag cure. We need to steal and bottle her. Faye is definitely jealous and wants Nick though. Or Melissa.

Cassie needed to find out what happened to Heather Barnes, so she searched her on the internet. What, no Bing reference, CW? She went to Heather’s brother, who lives in the creepiest house in the creepiest area, ever. Actually, it was kind of cool and we would totally live there as eccentrics. Adam agrees to go with her, so she won’t be scared. They find that Heather has been in a catatonic state for 16 years. Heather wakes up enough to grab Cassie’s arm, but that’s it. Offff course she grabs Cassie’s arm. That’s scary movie 101.

Cassie sees something marked on Heather’s wrist, and when she gets home, she shows Adam her family witch book. The symbol on Heather’s wrist is in there, so Cassie decides that her mother must have made Heather catatonic. Cassie determines to use magic to heal Heather, but Diana refuses to let Adam help her, because they don’t know enough yet to start using magic to fix the problem. We as viewers know she’s right, because she’s the Hermione/Dumbledore of the operation. Cassie does not know this yet.

Cassie gets Faye to help. They sneak into Heather’s place, do a spell, and leave, thinking it didn’t work. Later that night, Heather wakes up, knocks her brother out by throwing him against a wall, and goes in search of Cassie’s mom. Meanwhile, Diana finds out from her book that what Cassie’s mom did to Heather was to seal a demon inside of her, so that Heather could not wreak demonic havoc on the town and herself. Diana and Adam call Cassie, but Heather is already at her house. Faye is upstairs, reading Cassie’s family's Book of Shadows.

Cassie goes downstairs and finds Heather. Heather tells her what’s up, and then she starts going Full Demon (that’s kind of like Full Retard, only scary). Heather throws Cassie against the wall and then goes after Faye with a poker. Nick and Melissa see Faye having trouble through his window and go join the fight. The whole chase scene was pretty fun to watch. Sometimes it was creepy, and sometimes we were laughing, thinking, “Demons come where witches go? Ha, the fundies were right about what happens when kiddies get into magic, then?”

Heather runs into the street and a car slams into her. What a good reckless driver! Heather is dead, but the demon worm in her head crawls into Nick’s bag. We thought there was no way it would crawl into Nick’s ear when Melissa is sleeping right next to him. That’s what you get for being a witch AND slutting around, Melissa. Sure enough, we were right. Adam shows up at Cassie’s house, late at night, to make sure she is ok and help her clean up. This is just asking for trouble, but Adam is in high school and honestly might not know any better.

We’re not sure we like the demon direction in which this show is going, but we guess the show needed supernatural baddies who didn’t rely on a stone that will be depleted one day. We did like the episode, and the woman playing Heather was pretty fantastic, as was the makeup department that made her look shiny and wrong.

Episode grade: B+
