1.13 – Medallion
On Thursday’s “Fire/Ice,” Cassie again recruits trusty friend Adam (Thomas Dekker) to help look into her father’s past (and prompts him to ask her out to the school dance, aww), but what they don’t know is that fellow witch Faye (Phoebe Tonkin) is desperate to harness her power without the rest of the circle. So much so that she enlisted the help of voodoo “expert” Lee (Grey Damon).
The Hollywood Reporter: The last episode introduced hints of Cassie’s power and dark magic. How far does she take it?
Britt Robertson: You definitely get a taste of it here and there. You got a look into what’s going on with Cassie in the last episode and in “Fire/Ice” this week, you’ll see she’s learning how to control that power that she has inside her and what she wants to do with it, if she wants to embrace it. You’ll get to see her battle with it and how it slowly but surely is going to take her over — or not. The writers are playing with the idea that the dark magic is in her, it’s whether or not she chooses to use that power.
He’s back! Wheeee!
Seems like Jake (Chris Zylka) couldn’t stay away from Cassie (Britt Robertson) and the rest of the coven on The Secret Circle for long—he returned after one episode. And while a lot of fans are rooting for Jake and Cassie to get together, that whole trying to kill her and secretly being a witch hunter thing is a pretty big hurdle to overcome. And then there’s Adam (Thomas Dekker) waiting in the wings.
So how will Cassie react to Jake’s reappearance in Chance Harbor? And what will cause Cassie to “lose her mind”? Here’s what Robertson tell us…
“Obviously, Jake and Cassie didn’t leave it in the best of terms, but at this point, when he does come back, she’s going to be a little hesitant as to trust him,” Robertson says of Cassie’s reaction to Jake’s return. “He lied to her the entire time, he was part of the witch hunters and then he left with them. Why would she give her trust to him? I think that’s a really big part of why their little fling won’t go any further at this point. But you know, maybe he’ll be able to make it up to her as most men do.”
Cassie’s ready for love: “She’s definitely flirting with the idea of having a guy in her life,” Robertson says. “She needs someone to talk to and she needs someone to lean on because she has no one at this point, especially now that her grandmother is gone. So I think that’s a prime opportunity for some guy to come in there and swoop her up.” So will that guy be Jake or Adam? Robertson won’t say.
Cassie won’t reach the dark side just yet: We know Cassie has bad blood, but “it’s not something that’s going to overpower her at this point … the idea is that she has something inside of her that’s so powerful and that can do all of these things. That will motivate some sort of battle between the good and evil side of her and which she uses to go through life.”
