The Secret Circle- Crystal recap/review

What happened- A lot. The circle and John Blackwell decide that they need to find all the crystals. Well, Diana is sort of out on this plan. She is just trying to have a date with Grant, but the circle keeps interrupting. Finally, she has to ditch it altogether. Jake, Cassie, and Faye go to Jake’s grandfather’s house to ask if he knows anything. Callum follows them, because he has a crush on Melissa and hates Jake for telling him to back off of her. At Grandpa’s, Cassie sees a piece of paper with the names and birthdays of circle members and Jake’s grandpa tells them that the circle is going to die. He said that there are two other circles in the East and that John Blackwell was interested in having multiple children with magic so that he could corrupt future circles from within. Jake tells Cassie that Isaac said there was more than one Blackwell child in the circle. Faye reads her mom’s diary and finds out that John and her mother were boning at some point.

Jake asks Grandpa for his crystal and he tells them to go pound sand and that he hid it in the mines. Grandpa spelled the mines so that no one with dark magic can get in. Cassie takes a picture of Grandpa’s crazy board and snaps an image of a map that leads to Grandpa’s crystal. Callum breaks into Grandpa’s house and takes the real map.  

Cassie sends the picture of the map to Melissa and Adam so that they can go to the abandoned iron mine and get the crystal before Callum does. They do, but then Callum shows up with a gun. Adam and Callum struggle and the gun goes off. The rest of the circle has finally shown up and they hear the gunshot. Melissa takes the crystal from Adam and gives it to Callum to stop him from shooting Adam.

Callum runs off and attempts to leave on his motorcycle. Faye, thinking she is Blackwell’s other dark child, tries to stop him alone and nearly gets run over by the bike. Diana pushes her out of the way. Cassie tries to enter the mine but can’t, because it is spelled. Cassie runs after Callum and stops his bike. He takes a fall. The circle marks Callum and tell him to leave Chance Harbor.

John tries to get Charlie to help him defeat the witch hunters. Charlie is all, “I hate you” and then goes to Jane in order to team up with her to kill John. Jane invites John over to “make peace,” but really paralyzes him in order to kill him with a spell. Jane first wants to know if John killed Amelia. He says no, and her crystal confirms that this is the truth. Jane backs out of the murder plan. Charlie tries to go through with it, but the spell kills Jane instead.

Yeah, John was one step ahead of them. He messed with the spell because he remembered how much Jane hated him. John tells Charlie that he still has use for him and won’t kill him yet. Faye asks John if he is her dad. John says that Dawn was just obsessed with him but they never boned. Diana tells Cassie that she needs a break from the circle and also mentions that she wasn’t able to enter the mine. So THAT’S the other Blackwell child.

Comments- Are we crazy, or did Adam and Melissa have a moment in the mine? Will that lead to anything? Diana being John’s child too was a good twist. She is probably our favorite character on this show, so giving her dark power and a bigger part is a good thing. There’s no way she’s getting that break from the circle now. We hope Grant comes back soon. It will be interesting to watch Diana eventually have to tell him that she’s a witch. At this point, Melissa is the only one without a real storyline or issues that put her front-and-center. Callum’s obsession with her gave her a brief spotlight, but something else needs to happen to that girl.

We liked Jake’s crazy grandpa and his crazy wall of information. Does this mean that we are going to see two more circles in subsequent seasons? That sounds cool. Maybe there will be hot guys in those circles too. Who are we kidding? It’s the CW. OF COURSE there will be hot guys in the circles. We don’t know if Callum will be back, but we trust that the show will bring him back for a good reason if it does. We were surprised to lose Jane right after she got back from the mental health ward. John is definitely shady. It sounds like he was sleeping with all/most of the women in his circle. This show hasn’t had a bad episode yet. The quality is consistent. It’s very cool. If it keeps this up, it will be a favorite of ours for a long time.

Episode grade: A-


  1. I really liked this episode. I was completely shoced when we found out Diana was the other Blackwell and it was awesome. Diana is my favourite character too and I love this revelation so much.
    Yeah, I felt that weird moment between Adam and Melissa too. But I don't want something to happen there. Diana and Cassie are enough for Adam.
    I'm glad Callum is gone, he was annoying and creepy.
    And Faye was so bummed to find out she doesn't have dar magic, lol. It would be interesting to see her next week when she finds out Diana is the one with dark magic.

    P.S. Waiting for your Vampire Diaries recap.

    1. It's TRUE! Too many girls are into Adam! Jake is right there, ladies. Ugh. Faye doesn't need dark magic. She's already a spoiled brat. We like her, but she needs to do something redeeming or cool, stat.

      We've watched Vampire Diaries and should have something up today or tomorrow. It was too good of an episode to ignore.
