The Secret Circle: Hearts & Powers (PHOTO RECAP)

The Secret Circle S01E14: "Valentine"

Ever since I learned to speak English back in late '07 (I was raised by midget ponies, long story), I began to truly appreciate all the good TV out there. Because let's be honest, much of it isn't good, and that includes a lot of the things that are good. Wait, what? No, I got this: A TV show's value is not really a matter of personal taste (well, it IS) but it's more just that there's a huge spectrum of good to bad, and most shows claim multiple spots on that spectrum. For example, The Big Bang Theory is widely considered to be a "good" sitcom, but in my opinion it's also "very good," "medium-good," "slightly sucky," and "embarrassing garbage." Usually it's one of these things at a time, but occasionally it's all of them at the same time. Conversely, something widely considered to be awful, like, say, the 3am slot on QVC, is definitely unacceptable as entertainment but also has a dot on the "good" side of the good-bad spectrum in that it is surreal and kind of hilarious to hear the host yammering on about some terrible panda sculpture accented with LED twinkle lights. Like, sorry, but if I'm laughing, that's a point in its favor. What I'm trying to say is, the best way to watch TV is not to categorize everything in a black/white/good/bad category, but to instead recognize the goodness when you see it and just nod your head YES when you do.

I nodded my head YES SO MUCH during this week's episode of The Secret Circle and now my neck is sore! (Don't worry, QVC just had a good deal on neck massagers.) I love The Secret Circle, you guys. I know, right? Big shocker. This show is not a guilty pleasure, it is a PLEASURE. And like every other piece of entertainment it occupies multiple spots on the good-bad spectrum. "Valentine" averaged out to "awesome." It was certainly one of the best episodes of this series to date and probably one of the most entertaining hours of television I've seen in a while. It was one unapologetically fun, joyful, scary, funny, clever, dumb, sexy, awkward, ridiculous, and exciting hour of television. See? It was ALL of those things all at once. If you read these recaps without watching the actual show (which, go to the hospital because you're crazy), then you might consider jumping in on this episode. It was good!

Anyway, wanna talk about it? Don't say no, it's probably too late anyway to be honest, because here we goooooo...

We began in Jake's bedroom in the presumably humid aftermath of a whole night's worth of booty scootin' with Faye. A great scene transpired that only served to prove my theory that Jake and Faye are the best matchup this show's had so far: Faye attempted to "sneak out" while actually just passive aggressively trying wake him up and he immediately called her out on it.

Faye just sassed him back, playing it off like she was mortified over the encounter and whatnot. And that's when NEWLY CREDITED SERIES REGULAR Chris Zylka decided to celebrate the occasion with his first underwear scene!

Haha these two. Nothing like a little hate sex to kick off Valentine's Day. No but seriously, Jake spends so much time being all business that it's kind of awesome to see him throwin' sass back at Faye like a champ. They say that the best relationships result in two improved individuals, so the same is definitely true with this pair, personality-wise.

Anyway, at school (which had been thoroughly vandalized by some Valentine's Day-crazed terrorists) Faye was explaining to Melissa why she was walkin' funny.

Just kidding, actually Faye was downplaying the whole thing with Jake, claiming it meant nothing and she hates him, etc. Recently widowed (sorta) Melissa was not having it, and it made me laugh when she told Faye point-blank that they'd probably be a couple soon. (Fingers crossed!)

So that's when Faye declared that they should have a no-boys-allowed sleepover party, just the two of them.

And that's when Melissa immediately recognized that she didn't need to spend Valentine's Day getting 1-on-1 time with her most undermining friend and so she invited Diana and Cassie to join in.

I kind forgot that ever since Faye burned down the school and told everybody off, she hadn't been too involved with the Circle. So yeah, it made sense that she didn't want Cassie to come over, but it was nice that she immediately came around. It actually struck me as kinda true. Teens, they're so mercurial.

Anyway, then Cassie realized she'd forgotten her book and decided to go run to her car.

And on her way she encountered a romantic lead:

And get this: He legit asked her out on a date! Only took 14 episodes, but finally a verifiable relationship's happening here. Apparently all of Adam's wet-blanket nagging really warmed Cassie's heart because she seemed more than down.

Oh and then when Cassie was in her car searching for her book, THIS happened:

Aaaahhh! Get out of here, hooded dude, get into my nightmares!

This was hilarious:

Lee showed up at Faye's house and just sort of gave her a piece of garbage on a stick.

Quick note to the Art Department: Seriously? Was it super late and you wanted to go home? It seriously looks like somebody dipped a stick in some glue and then dragged it around on the ground for ten minutes.

I guess that thing had to do with voodoo and if Faye kept it by her bed it would "drain" peoples' powers and enhance hers. Or something. Basically a dreamcatcher except more embarrassing. But let's get real, if Grey Damon gave you a piece of trash on a stick you'd accept it also. Don't lie.

Then things got SERIOUS:

Isaac came back! (Related question: Anyone else excited about Teen Wolf Season 2?) Anyway, it was pretty nice of him to pay a visit because Jake had A LOT of questions for him. His answers weren't incredibly satisfying though because he didn't seem very honest. For instance, he claimed that Jake's parents were murdered as a result of Blackwell's betrayal. Which, what? Nope, the witch hunters definitely murdered Jake's parents, quit it, Isaac. But Isaac's insistence that Blackwell schemed for the total destruction of his circle DID plant a seed of doubt in Jake's head, as well as establish that maybe Blackwell is kind of a bad guy.

Cassie didn't really believe that, though, so there she was attempting to communicate with him in the basement again.

Unfortunately she had company:

Luckily Adam was just right upstairs and he was NOT about to let cloaked dudes get at her.

Because he's Adam, he immediately questioned why Cassie was trying so hard to conjure her father, reasoning that maybe Blackwell didn't want anything to do with her. Fair enough? No argument there, 16 years is a lot of birthdays to miss. Then to Adam's credit, he suggested Cassie meet up with Jake to learn more about the symbol on the cloaked dude's hood. Jake definitely knew about stuff like that, so it was nice that Adam could get over himself enough to suggest this.

Elsewhere, the no-boys-allowed sleepover party had begun, and guess who brought a SUITCASE?

Oh, Diana. But hey check out Faye's bedroom!

I love these kids' enormous bedrooms. Faye's has a sitting area! Plus I'm getting a Moroccan-Indonesian vibe? Girl's got talent for decor. And that molding is nuts!

Anyway, then Diana accidentally pushed Faye onto whatever that thing was that Lee gave her.

Faye was super steamed about it! Then when she left the room, Melissa got down to business:

Diana was ALL ABOUT the drugs. Diana was like "I don't like the drugs, but the drugs like me." Diana was like "I wanna Puff the Magic Dragon and visit Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds." Diana wanted to buuuuuuurnnnn!

Oh yeah, the party had STARTED.

And seriously, I thought I liked High Melissa a lot, but she was NOTHING compared to High Diana. High Diana was THE BEST. Just look at this:

High Diana 4-eva! Even grouchy, sober Faye was into it.

That's when Faye announced she was ordering pizza and Melissa and Diana decided they should use magic to conjure the hottest pizza guy possible. I wasn't sure how this worked: Did this mean the pizza place would decide to send its most attractive delivery guy, or was an ordinary dude about to transmogrify into a completely new person? I don't know, I don't ask questions when it comes to attractive pizza guys. All I know is their spell involved making sexy, sensual faces while imagining their ideal pizza guy.

Then almost on cue: DING DONG!

But it was only Lee! What a sexy misunderstanding! He'd only popped on over to fix the garbage stick for Faye, but ended up getting a hungry mouthful from High Diana. (Note: High Melissa's face in this picture is the best).

Oh, there was also this funny part where Diana texted Cassie "Bitch, hurry" and in the next scene Cassie got the text and read it out loud with a raised eyebrow. I don't know, maybe you had to be there. Anyway that's when Cassie noticed her medallion was sliding across the kitchen island all by itself!

But this was why:

Aaaahhh!! No! Get out of here, you goth prowler!

Back at the slumber party, the doorbell rang AGAIN!

And here was the hot guy they'd conjured, although it looked more like he was a composite of the three hot guys they'd collectively imagined?

I want that t-shirt SO BAD. Art Department, I'm sorry about what I said earlier. Can we be friends? With benefits? ("Benefits" meaning baseball tees with fictional pizza place logos on them?) I promise I will only make fun of that garbage stick ONE more time later on.

What was I saying? Oh right:

High Diana was ON A ROLL!

This was apparently a famous moment from the books. I don't know because I don't read (don't know how; these recaps are dictated into SIRI; she hates me), but I DO know that High Melissa CANNOT be trusted with pizza:

Right that pizza, young lady! Anyway then there was a THIRD ding-dong! But this time it was Cassie and she had witnessed Diana mouth-attack that poor boy.

Oh maybe now's a good time to mention it, but did you notice that Cassie's hair and makeup were slightly grimmer this episode? I'm guessing it's dark magic related, but I dug it. She's about two fireball spells away from an eyebrow piercing.

Forget what I said about Faye and Jake being the best couple. #PIZZANA is my new favorite couple!!

I ship #PIZZANA so hard. They are true love personified! BRB I have to go start all the Tumblrs and make YouTube fanvids and create role-playing accounts on Twitterrrrrr!!!

Anyway, while TV's hottest love affair continued on the left side of the screen, Cassie informed the group about her recent ghost troubles.

As Jake had informed her, the symbol on the cloaked dude's robe indicated he or she was the ghost of a dead witch from a long-extinct coven. What he didn't tell her was, the coven had been wiped out by Blackwell himself in order to charge his medallion.

It was actually pretty cool how the ladies immediately believed Cassie's crazy story, including Faye, who generally looks for any reason to throw shade at Cassie. Actually, Cassie had Faye at "ghost." Faye <3s ghosts so much apparently!

Then they got out something that was definitely NOT a Ouija board because that name is trademarked. Let's just call it a witchboard, okay?

Anyway, lo and behold, the ghosts were NOT interested in moving the plastic thingy around. That's when Cassie had a brainstorm.

And of course the medallion immediately started moving around, and it started SPELLING:

Actually the medallion just spelled the word "SACRED" which sparked a pretty humorous debate about what it meant. High Diana suggested it meant that Cassie was "the most sacred witch in all the land" and I laughed out loud. That's right, the literal, real-life LOL. Question: Is High Diana basically Erin from The Office? Is she secretly the funniest?

And just when things got a little TOO fun, Cassie got a text message from Adam:

Suddenly she was driving to his house, which, just so you know, entails driving on a lonesome country road even though he lives on a boat? (Don't ask questions.)

That's when the medallion started acting like a real dick!

This was a fairly astonishing car crash! I'm not just saying that because most of my nightmares are car crash related, this was a really unexpectedly epic crash stunt that looked expensive to do, and also was that REALLY Britt Robertson flailing around in there??

While Cassie was flippin' cars somewhere on a country road, Adam was gussying up his boat for her arrival.

By that time Jake had been tipped off to the ghost situation and he came to find her at Adam's but had to settle for Adam instead. This was actually a nice moment: These guys hate each other but it was still kind of the first "bro" moment in the series so far. Two male teenage characters having a conversation: Imagine that!

Oh, but don't worry, Cassie didn't get so much as a scratch during that seemingly catastrophic crash.

It was hilarious how she was immediately SO PISSED off. Not shaken or scared or wary. Just royally ticked.

And then she just started RUNNING AFTER A GHOST. I'm sorry, this girl is a badass. THAT is why she is the hero of this show. I mean, we already knew how much she likes to run (with those tiny dollfeet of hers), but combine that with being kind of a GANGSTA and she's really turning into something special.

Back at the slumber party, things took a turn for the worrisome.

Oh no! High Melissa became Overdosin' Melissa! Not since Rayanne Graff had someone so likable made such bad party choices.

Actually this was a pretty subtle thread during the episode, but it was implied that Melissa would do drugs whenever people talked about guys. First with Diana's pizza guy incident, then later when Cassie mentioned she was gonna go see Adam. Maybe I'm reading too much into this, but if this was intentional on the writer's part it was pretty subtle and very heartbreaking. It's Valentine's Day. Her boyfriend had DIED. And so she'd self-medicated herself nearly to death.

Luckily there was no need to call Angela Chase's mom, High Diana snapped into gear and held Melissa's hair while she, I guess, puked out the drugs?

I mean, I'm not sure that's how drugs work, but fine. Was anybody else hoping this scene would turn into that part in Poltergeist II where Craig T. Nelson vomits up A MONSTER? No? YouTube it up and tell me this wasn't a missed opportunity.

Shortly before discovering Melissa's writhing body, Diana and Faye had argued about how Faye was jealous of Diana and Melissa's friendship, while Faye countered that Diana had ditched Melissa in junior high once she got with Adam. I know that sounds like a trite conversation, but it felt pretty painfully real to me. Anyway, that's why Faye decided the time was right to assert her friendship over Diana's.

And she got DENIED! Melissa instead found solace in Diana's bosom (who wouldn't?) and Faye learned a valuable lesson about pathologically undermining her low self-esteem having best friends over a period of years.

Meanwhile, Cassie was still all mad at that ghost! She chased it through a snowy forest and then to some crazy abandoned church out in the middle of the woods?

Um, WHAT? Isaac or Jake or somebody had mentioned that this was where Blackwell murdered that whole coven, but I don't even care. This was some Argento-style dream logic and I LOVED it. Random and enormous abandoned church out in the middle of nowhere? Sure. Our heroine runs toward it and chases a ghost inside? Why not!

It wasn't long (only seconds, really) before Cassie found herself surrounded by ghosts!

Luckily BOTH of her romantic prospects arrived, having correctly assumed that her destroyed and abandoned wreckage meant that she'd chased a ghost on foot through the wilderness and into a decrepit church.

LOL at Adam's knife.

LOL at Adam's MASS POSSESSION! Okay, bingo. This was incredible. The ghost witches gathered around Adam and just disappeared into him! And then he started talking in a demon voice and threatening to "kill this shell."

Amazing! And it goes without saying it was Thomas Dekker's finest moment on this show to date. I'm sure he knows this. Everybody knows this. At this point I started shaking my head knowingly, all "You crafty writers. THIS is how you're gonna do it. This is how you're gonna overhaul Adam's personality." Because really, Adam could definitely stand to be permanently possessed from now on right? Possessed Adam >>> Regular Adam.

Anyway, via Adam, the ghosts were yammering on about how much they wanted the medallion back.

But Jake was climbing over pews begging Cassie not to give it to them.

But what nobody expected was that Cassie is a BAMF BOSS and she not only knocked Jake on his ass using telepathy, then she did this:

What?! She crumpled up a METAL medallion into dust! At that point it apparently destroyed the ghosts' remaining power and they left Adam's body.

And then Possessed Adam was back to Regular Adam. OR WAS HE? Kinda seemed like it. OR DID IT? Yeah. TOO BAD? Too bad.

Jake returned what was left of the medallion to Isaac, who had earlier implored Jake to return the medallion to the witch hunters so that they could keep it safe or some other bogus reason. I don't know. Isaac wasn't thrilled about the medallion having been destroyed, which kind of made his claim suspicious, but whatever. Jake was way over him by that point.

Back at Faye's house, she and Diana had a moment of understanding where Faye reluctantly (and selflessly!) gave Diana her blessing to be Melissa's new bestie.

It was actually a great moment: Faye informed her that regardless of who Melissa hung out with, Faye would be there for her anyway, like even in the background and in secret. And you know something, THAT is friendship. And very adult! It's nice when Faye demonstrates how big her heart is. Baby steps, you know?

Oh, but remember that dumb voodoo stick that looked like it was used as a toothpick by Marjory the Trash Heap from Fraggle Rock? Faye placed it under her bed and in the next scene Lee put an identical one near the bed of his COMATOSE GIRLFRIEND.

I am so into this plotline, seriously. Lee's gonna leech Faye's life essence or whatever and bring some hussy out of her drug overdose-induced coma. That's pretty awesome right there.

So, last thing about the slumber party angle, and why I loved it so much: It was nothing if not a huge reminder of how fun it is to be a teenager. Plus these witches used MAGIC in order to have fun! I've been begging for that to happen for, like, the entire run of the show, and it just feels good to get what I want, you know? That's just science. These scenes and these people were just a good way to spend my time. Seriously, it just made me so happy.

Speaking of happy, Adam was about to get his Valentine's Day wish.

And whether it was because Cassie actually LIKED Adam, or if she was just completely exhausted and beaten down from life, she finally gave in.

It was just a romantic moment for the ages, you know? Haha just kidding, it was awkward. But good for them, anyway! It's nice that Cassie has officially begun a romance with somebody, anybody. In retrospect, that implied romance with Jake was just silly wasn't it? Like, come on. One kiss? At least Adam used the word "date" in this episode. That's an improvement. Oh hey did you notice that Cassie is the only character on the show who hasn't gotten laid yet? And I don't mean to sound improper, but are we looking at a virginity-related-magic plotline here? Forget it, none of my business.

Oh look, some dude in black is loitering down at the pier!

Who could this be? Besides someone who apparently doesn't have any Neosporin?

Ladies and gentlemen, John Blackwell's snail-paced arrival continues. Welcome, dark daddy!

Might as well restate it in case I haven't been clear enough: What a fun episode! I've watched it thrice now, and it never stopped being entertaining. Obviously the High Diana stuff was great, as was the Faye & Jake nakedness (Fakedness?), and also the hundred megaton bomb of romance known as #PIZZANA. But even the monster-of-the-week element was brilliant: A clever expansion of the witch world, in which dead ones don't stay dead and the transference of power has major consequences. Nice job, everybody!

Bye.

This recap was hilarious, I actually LOLed. The opening scene was surprising, I didn't think Faye would go at it again after she said no, but some people say no when they're really saying yes so... I loved how Cassie was like, OMG frightening figure, let's follow it! I liked possessed Adam better, in my opinion he finally got interesting. Don't know at the last question

I'm now glad I stuck with this, that was a great episode. Diana and Melissa have got themselves some great pins too! High Diana was awsome. I'm much prefering this new uninhibited Melissa, much more personality and much sexier with this naughty side. Just a shame about Adam - let's hope he's still possessed as we start seeing an evil scheming very soon!

This show needs to have a balance and be more ACTION driven like the Vampire Diaries... even PLL that is nt supernatural,it kinda has more suspense and action going on for it,that makes me want to tune in every time,and always keeping me on my toes,i want TSC to be like that even more cos they r witches..they can do all things cant they??,thats why the pilot will forever be the BEST episode cos there was lots of magic use,and it kinda kips you guessing what they can/might/will do next and gets you excited to tune in..but after that i dont know..i guess this episode came a close second to it,cos the pilot set the standard and made me expected much from this show..but its just still not delivering and i dont even get excited to watch.. if 80% of the show is going to just be about the witches RELATIONSHIPS, then they should call the show "Chance Harbor High".... the relationship should be the least of their worries right now..it should be MAGIC!!,thats why i kinda like cassie a tiny bit cos even thou 2 guys wanna kill themselves over her,her main concern is still magic discoveries given her body language with ADAM or mayb,they just dont have chemistry,but i highly doubt it,PLZ let faye slow down on the boy thing..its too much,let her explore magic more,shes my fave xter and i just want them to establish her and others as well b4 pairing them up for any relationship..i dont mind if they make her bisexual/gay,cos am kinda getting that vibe from her,but whatever....and as for melissa,i love the little development in this episode and the CALLUM guy gives me soo much CALEB from prettylittleliars,but more edgy and in a GOOD WAY..so i am kinda ohk and partial with him just for that reason..but anyways...TSC needs to speed things up and fast,get a page from harry potter,the craft,Hecate the Goddess of Witchcraft,season of the witch....just make magic and witchcraft do it,and do it fast and good!!... This is a story about WITCHES/MAGIC &relationship nt the otherway round....This show really needs to pickup the pace...I love TSC willing to give it a chance and i am still giving it a chance ..hope things move fast pretty soon...any news if its been picked up for season 2 yet??..with that said...Price never sees to amaze me everytime with his TSC recap..i love it..you r a genius!!..

I like what TSC did in this episode. I mean, it's not action, per se, and I don't think there needs to be a car crash in every other episode, but it built up to the climax well, and the climax was suitably free of action.

Also, who else LOVED the music when Cassie was running through the woods? That music was great. I recognize it, I don't know is it a theme created for the show, but if it is, I love it even more.

1) Yeah, kinda awesome.

2) I'm telling you, I LOVE Cassie's darker look and attitude. Even though it was so obvious this episode (the dark eye-shadow, the slightly crazier hair), I like where they're going with it. I mean, she's scared of losing control, but she's been managing pretty good, I think. No?

3) High Diana was really funny, but Possessed Adam was a whole other level of acting: he creeped me out, it was so great!

4) Hey, guess what? I don't care! Maybe she'll move on to Cosmopolitans next week. I'm rooting for that.

All in all, a very solid episode with some particularly strong moments and, as always, great acting. A! Sure, the elusive 'love triangle' wasn't really exciting this episode, but that happens all the time. Don't care. Cassie should just be single and send men flying against the walls (or church pews) more.

Try to picture it concentrate on your emotions:

Someone shouts at you, calls you all sorts of nasty names, then kicks you down, forces you to watch while he/she destroys the things you love, rapes your man (or woman) finally, ties you to a tree, and burns your house.



You're there, shaking with anger, helplessness and frustration!

Then, out of the smoke of your burning house, emerges a man, no A HERO, and while you're still tied to the tree, you watch as he inflicts the most unimaginable pain on the a**holes who wronged you. Then comes and free you, and heals your soul.



You're my hero Price Peterson!



I thought the first two paragraphs were stretching sarcasm a bit, but all is forgiven for the clip clop!



clip clop - LLOOLL LOL LOL

Transmogrify! - LOL

Gigantic Pe - LOL

The church!

Adam's knife - LOL!



Thank you again Mr. Peterson! I learned that revenge is not a dish best served cold It's best when someone else does it (eloquently) for you!



[in a whisper weak from laughing]

I had wanted to choke everyone in this show (now with a medallion) for so long!

Haven't visited tv.com here in years but that was one awesome recap. You summed up the show well - it's simultaneously sucky and awesome at the same time, and you're spot on about everything (uh bar Diana and the Pizza) in the recap. Had a great blend of action (I thought at the time too that the car crash was darn impressive), creepy horror, fluffy fun, hot romance and some humerous moments. Plus they actually acted like teen other than most shows where they just act like bots. Awesome ep, awesome recap. Too much awesome I know but I'm impressed!

- ....Jake should appear on all scenes with only his underwear (Deep Vs are optional)



-when I watched Cassie running after the ghosts, I actually screamed at my TV "GO GET 'EM YOU BAD ASS MOTHERFUCKER!!!" such a low point in my life.



- HIGH DIANA! she makes me wanna live life to the fullest, just eating pizza and do some pillow fight



- for one, I am so so SO VERY glad that there's no parents subplot here. I was happy when they (almost) killed Dawn in the last episode... but, well.

Loved the episode too!! Cassie is BAMF! Hoping they keep Faye and Jake going, they totally work. I am worried about Faye though with Lee's secret plans for his girlfriend. Will that ugly stick cause negative effects for Faye? Ha, sure they will. Sucks man!! High Diana was fun. Hope we can get Melissa off the stuff before she turns out like Lee's girlfriend. I liked Adam in this episode and how he took care of Cassie. She needs more of that. Where is her Grandma? Taking too long to repair her brain!

This was TSC"s best ep yet, no doubt! I don't know what the writers were on but I hope they stick with it 'cause this was some damn good storytelling. And love your work Price, as always. High Diana was the BEST!!!

1. You are indeed, quite correct sir.



2. I loved it, it annoys me to no end when shows are coy and the characters play it safe and don't do anything, or even find anything out about anything, or even discuss wanting to find anything out about anything. That's not how most average people would act never mind teenagers! So sick of hearing the line 'I just want a normal life.. yada yada' on TV. Most people don't want boring lives, that why TV exists! (This is the reason I love Faye's character so much as well, she's so impulsive and human.)



3. Possessed Adam. I think six different kind of evil dead corruption made him much more pleasant to watch than normal Adam who for me was starting to slip into a surrogate 'boring-Stefan' role in my head. What with all the protecting and self-righteousness.



4. Hopefully the mystic grill so Bonnie can show up, get bound to a circle and become even more laughably powerless?



Also speaking as the sole remaining straight male CW viewer, I was disappointed by lack of slumber party supernatural lesbian experimentation. Two of them were high for Christ's sake!

This was a fun episode and the four girls together were awesome... which made it all the more obvious that the Adam character lacks everything a romantic lead needs - sorry Adam but you need to go and make room for compelling guys 'a la Jake'

How can a show that starts with hot mostly naked people be anything other than great?



Cassie's attitude is getting edgier by the episode and it's a welcome change from her innocent goody-goody attitude from the beginning of the show. She totally belongs with Jake. They have better chemistry and look good together. All the sweetness of Cassie and Adam makes me want to puke.



Loved high Diana even more than last week's high Melissa. But I liked her from the beginning so I have to say that possessed Adam Is the best cuz any change in him is desperately needed.

I loved the picture you had at the start when Cassie saw the ghost and she was screaming when the pic was taken. And I love the clip clop noises when Cassie runs.

Dianna was hot as hell when she was high. There was a bit of a love triangle between Faye, Melissa and Dianna? They were fighting over who got custody of Melissa....I can't wait to see if Faylissa of Dilissa will hook-up???

If this episode had only included the first five minutes, it still would have been the best ever. Chris Zylka in his undies? Holy clavicles.



So glad they finally showed us why the heck Lee kept Faye's blood. That mixed with the creepy rope doll means bad things are totes about to go down.



High Diana was definitely the HIGHlight of this episode. She said Pizza more than anyone else's name, meaning PIZZANA forever!



Possessed Adam was a moment where I truly got to see how incredible of an actor Thomas Dekker is. I was so seriously creeped out by his eye rolling, teeth baring possession face. Kudos Thomas.



I agree with you on the whole "Cassie's makeup/clothing is looking darker" thing. I noticed that as well and planned on hopefully making an insightful comment about it, but you beat me to it Price! I looked back at your recaps from the episode she found out about the dark magic and beyond, and in each episode, her clothing/makeup gets progressively darker. If this was intentionally done, then clever clever make up/wardrobe department.



I'm happy there was no crystal talk this week. The parents sub-plot kills me every time it is included. Your previous recaps of their scenes with *Crystal?* *Crystal!* captions explains it perfectly. Get on with it rents! Get your heads out of your crystal obsessed butts and notice that your kids have all nearly died at one point or another. Teach them something useful for a change.

Price, the show is pretty good, but I think I'm only watching it at this point so I understand your recap - much funnier than the show. :)

So, I've decided I want them to Dean-Winchester Adam. I mean, no one will ever play Dean Winchester the same way - nor as brilliantly - as Jensen Ackles, but just imagine taking Adam out of the equation - even if this WAS one of his better episodes - and then putting a (younger) Dean Winchester in there. Can you FEEL the awesome? Jake's a pretty unique depiction of a bad-boy, when you really think about it, and he's a lot more 'safe' than I thought he would be. What we need is a snarky, I-turn-to-humour-in-times-of-great-struggle type guy who is both fiercely protective (but not controlling) of his loved ones, but also tells bad jokes in such a charming way that you just gotta love the guy. Some will say 'Damon Salvatore', but no man will ever equal Dean Winchester.

But, as I said, TSC NEEDS a Dean Winchester, and I nominate Thomas Dekker to accept this challenge. Because he CAN act, and he can play good characters...this show just forgets that sometimes.Add a comment...

I haven't seen Dekker in anything else, but I going by TSC doesn't seem like he has the Jensen Ackles' style mojo (not just Dean, remember Alec in Dark Angel?) Jensen has a whole different spark in him - his 'prettiness' actually smooths out the edges of his badassery :) Dekker, on the other hand, seems like an attractive nerd at best - even his attractiveness is on the nerdy side - I really don't see how he can be challenged into doing a Dean Winchester - or even Alec. He's 1) not physically a stud like Jensen is and 2) not a bad-boy in general demeanour (like say, Jeremy is on TVD - a pretty boy who can turn convincingly in a bad boy performance). Dekker seems too mild for that sorta thing. They have better chances with Chris Zylka - you see flashes of his cooler, funnier side with Faye - maybe even Lee if he gets a role past his temp villain stunt. Till now, on TSC, Jake seems to be doing the Dean-ish role. -ISH being the keyword :)

Very good point.

The thing is, I want Adam, as a character, gone, replaced with someone LIKE Dean Winchester. But as a Thomas Dekker fan, I still want HIM on my screen. You make a good point, though, Thomas generally plays nerdy nice guys - even Adam is a big step away from what I usually see Thomas do, y'know, the low husky voice and constant frown...I just think, this show needs his talent - because he DOES have talent - but it also needs a snarky male character. So in my head I'm combining the two.

I'll settle for them doing something else altogether with Adam's character, but I still want the Dean Winchester factor. (A girl can dream :-D)

For some absurd reason I can't answer your latest post...! But I see you're doing things the manual way like me :P That's good to know, coz I thought I was a being a total doofus for not figuring out something so simple. But it's not me, it's them! LOL Anyway, yup, smiling would be a good start for Adam. In the short term, he and Cassie need to generate some real chemistry... that kiss on the boat was seriously awkward. A heaven-ordained romance needs more 'tude ;) As a Dekker fan, I hope you get what you want... and I hope Dekker gets new fans, like, say, me, who definitely wants to see him play up to his full potential!

Well, he's got a lot :-) Hopefully the show will take advantage of this oppertunity. He was in that Terminator show, and his character isn't necessarily a happy-go-lucky kinda guy, but the difference is crazy.

It's 'them', eh? Yeah. I always blame THEM, too.
Flag
I get what you mean now... makes sense. Adam is really annoying as of now. I started with liking him but once Jake appeared his personality took a nosedive in a wobbly jelly-like mess, like the writers had no clue what they wanted him to do or be. I don't see why they can't give him an edge, like a clever, sharp but sweet guy edge, I'd say like S1/S2 Sam. And yup, every series needs a Dean :P Nothing compares to a Dean...



Off topic - how do you know if someone has replied to your post? Is there a setting? I looked for it but can't see anything in my dashboard. I only saw that you'd replied since the window was still open. Thanks in advance if you solve this for me :)

I just check back here, which is rather sad haha. But sometimes people rely with questions, and I always feel forced to check because I don't like leaving questions unanswered...such as this one haha. So basically, I just check. I'm not sure if there's an inbox, if there is I haven't come across one yet.



I love Season 1/2 Sam. He was a nice guy...and it always struck me as funny how, once Dean wasn't there to save his ass, Sam pretty much transformed into an ass-whoopin', sarcastic legend. But, yeah, that would probably be a better role for Adam to turn into. At least he, y'know, smiles :-)

I'm not convinced by the romance in the Cassie / Adam sub-plot, but I think this is intentional. Perhaps Thomas Dekker (who has prooved himself to be a great actor) is doing better than you think. I'm guessing there connection is more than we know, perhaps not just in the romantic sense.



However, the series seems to drag a bit. We are getting not-so-much slowly drip fed. It's time to answer some major questions. Enough about crystals and teenage naivety.



Still, it's enjoyable. Plus, with the excellent series Fringe setting the standards on TV at the moment, it's hard to be completely impressed by anything else.

i know a lot of gay actors who can play straight guys, but thomas dekker is not one of them. adam is more gay than a gay parade and "unreal" doesn't start to describe their relationships with cassie.

note: no offence! i just think that the actor should have played a gay person or a straight person with no pairing. in this role of romeo he looks ridiculous.
Reply

PRETTY sure he's straight. Or maybe bisexual. But if you mean by his manner, I really never found him to come off as the stereotypical idea of 'gay'. And it's never made Adam appear that way. Adam's just an unlikeable character that you couldn't appreciate if he was played by *insert name of person you find extremely likeable*.

Am I the only one who thinks the actors sexuality is irrelevant? Adam and Cassie have been angsty from day one, so its not surprising people are having a hard time with their "romance". If Adams character had been written similar to Lee's (mysterious bad boy) I doubt we'd be having this conversation. Adam is so vanilla I can't imagine him with ANYONE male or female. Go head, try and picture him steaming up the screen with Jake or some other dude. You can't, because Adam is boring beyond belief. Honestly I'd rather Cassie get with possessed Adam and have a kinky ghost five way.

Okay, so apparently he's not gay according to this: http://www.towleroad.com/2011/04/dekker.html.

Unless he's come out of the closet since.

I heard he was "open to the idea." Whatever he is, I don't blame him for what they've done to his character. Adam is now the exact guy that makes guys' nuts hurt and women's ovaries shrivel.

He's not that good looking. He looks too much like a kid to seem attractive and/or a realistic romantic lead.

oh no, i didn't want it to sound like that! the problem is not in the actor, it's in the miscast. remember the episode from glee when kurt and blaine both tried to get the role of tony at the west side story? they chose blaine not because kurt was not a good singer, but because this role didn't suit him. i just want to say here, there're many roles that suit dekker, but not this one.

I don't think this role suits anyone decent. The role of Adam is a wet albatross of fail that would weigh down any guy's future hot cred.

I thought you'd gotten it and went with the Serenity reference anyway. But Mal used it sort of as a counter argument, so I felt the need to explain the metaphor to show we weren't on different pages.

Wow. Acrobit, you took my comment and made a reasoned argument out of it. My own thought process didn't get that far.

At the time I was just going for a nerdy (witty? maybe?) Firefly/Serenity reference to see if anyone else would pick up on it.

I kinda like your post better, sounds more like a rational adult conversation. :)

v : Yeeup. The albatross was good luck, as Adam was a good character. Then, CW shot Adam's character with a bolt of creepy obsessive stalker fail that killed him in the eyes of many of their viewers.



Now, when we look at Dekker, we also see the corpse of what could've been an awesome character hanging on him, and I wonder if he'll be able to remove it in the future.

Just gotta say I am so pumped for the sick-girlfriend/Faye plotline!. Its like as she gets better Faye gets sicker or something? I hope so - it as the potential for some great scenes!

How much did this show improve without the parents? Although Ethan, Charles and Dawn are all ridiculously young and attractive, at the end of the day they are also ridiculously snooze-worthy. There is a reason that most (of the remaining ten) students at Mystic Falls High are either orphans or were abandoned! Hopefully Daddy Blackwell will live up to the hype instead of joining the club of crystal addicts.

Reply

Okay, I really miss the days when I was just as tacit online as I am in general. But seriously, here's some suggestions I kinda think would make this show even more awesome.



1. Lose the Love triangle...no pentagon..no Sextagon? Whatever. Lose it. I actually think that playing up the love aspect is completely fruitless and unecessary. This show thrives on the actual happenings with Cassie and witchcraft. The love wars are cliches and cheap tricks to overcompensate for other aspects. I don't think this show needs it. As it stands now we have Adam and Jake presumably dueling over Cassie. We have Diana and Cassie tied in with Adam. We have Cassie and Faye tied in with Jake. We have Jake and Lee tied in with Faye. It's too much, and it's so very unnecessary. Because while I'm perfectly okay with Adam and Cassie being destined for each other etc...they didn't slow play it the way they should have, the forced it upon us and while I don't agree that the two lack chemistry I can't necessairly disagree with it either. It's mainly because the characters haven't had enough time to adequately develop before they tossed in love triangles. They rushed into it entirely too fast and it acts as a distraction for the more interesting aspects of the show. Cassie shouldn't be with either guy right now, she hasn't had reason to be with either of them right now, she has about as much chemistry with Adam as she does with Jake which isn't much because there has been nothing to build up to chemistry. I'd actually like Cassie to be single...there is nothing wrong with the female lead being single, she's focused on discovering her history, herself, her powers. That's enough for her. If they must have the romance angles, leave it to the more appropriately used love angle that is Diana and Adam, and the awesome love/hate casualness of Faye and Jake (who are kinda AWESOME together I must say!). Slow play it. Cassie getting remotely involved with any guy romantically should be preseved for next season...the first season they could have dropped a few hints and just left it there. They went too fast with the love stuff.



2.Humans. Where are all the humans?! The last thing this show needs is more characters cluttering it up, however...they need peripheral characters. I mean with the exception of Lee and creepy drug dude...there is a lack of humans. They really need that interaction, that sense of normalcy. What happened to Sally? She disappeared into that tv wasteland where all the forgotten characters of past shows go? Cassie could have used a human friend and I thought it would have been a nice friendship to have. Just the idea of having to keep her powers secret from a non-witch. I know the circle has to have other friends outside of the actual circle. Humans, though boring when you're watching a show about supernatural beings, add something interesting to the plot. Balances the show out.



3. Character development. It's probably the only problem I'll never get over about this show. I can ignore the others, but I cannot ignore this one. Some of the characters are unquestionably lacking development and presence. It's something that has to be worked on. I like Cassie and I think she's a great lead, but a show is only as good as it's least developed main character which is pretty much everyone who isn't Cassie. There is more than one story to be told about the circle and it's witchcraft. It literally has me itching to discover who the other Blackwell child is, if it'll lead to some of the development being branched out to other characters. Melissa and Adam suffer the most, but the former manages to milk every scene she is in to death so it works and the subtlety in how the actress herself chooses to perform makes up for the lack of development and screentime for her character in general. The latter has all the makings of a decent character but it's not being pieced together. He gets more screentime than he probably should which only highlights how one-dimensional his character comes across and further irritates the majority of the fanbase. Adam spent most of his life taking care of his drunken father...something that could be evaluated. Melissa has a low self esteem and parents we haven't met...something to expound upon. Faye has a rather interesting relationship with her mother...and is complex as most mean girls usually are...something to dig into a tad more.Diana embraces the maternal role of the group...makes you wonder where they came from, and yet she's not as uptight and reluctant to have fun as her Good girl role may imply...makes you wonder why that is? They don't have to throw everything at the audience at once, but if they give us cookie crumbs along the way it would work.



4.The Generational aspect- They don't exploit it enough...or use it appropriately. If anything Charles and Dawn's quest to steal their kids' magic is kind of sad. Charles went from being a super badass, cold blooded killer, to being an adult version of Adam mooning after Dawn...who funny enough is as opportunistic as her daughter but not as compassionate. Blackwell will undoubtedly be the game changer and I can't wait for those moments, but there is still Melissa's parents, Ethan is still unclear..and the grandparents and the roles they all play. The intergenerational witchcraft and the fact that they dare to bring multi generations into this show sets it apart from many shows and broadens it's target audience exponentially but they don't take advantage of it as much as they should.



5. More guys. I'm not saying that because I could use a bit more eye candy...okay not ONLY saying that because I could use more eye candy but it's true. There are just too many teen girls and their drama...and then there is Adam who is sometimes just as bad as a teen girl and then there is Jake. The show needs a bromance. Jake and Adam just don't cut it with their cheesy **** measuring contest they do anytime they share a scene together. They actually need a guy friendship. The show needs some more testosterone for sure. I mean it would be nice to see Adam with an actual guy friend, the last time that happened he turned out to be a witch hunter. I find it hard to believe that there are no cool guys on this show to hang out with. The best parts of any show is the funny bromance or dynamic duo...this show kind of lacks that and it really needs it.



I don't know. I love watching this show and I do enjoy the characters and there are many things this show does oh so well (like kudos to the people doing the set and the props...because they shoot some pretty epic scenes that are all dark and twisty and fantastical. Oh and the composer of that opening song....I hum that addictive little medley all week long...and the actors are all fab)...and I'll remain as hooked as ever because..this show is addicting as hell, but yeah...some fine tuning I think they could benefit from

I have to fully agree on your assessment about Character Development. Gosh, it's in Screenwriting 101, in just about any tv script book out there and also it is just plain good sense. Shallow characters create no desire to relate from the viewers. The show has great cast, nice back story coming from a successful book, they have the budget... And here we are, commenting on it during early morning hours. Just get it together, TSC.

I know it's like....the actors are so fantastic and I just thoroughly enjoy them so I want to root for them all in various ways when they're playing their characters but some of the characters are just falling a bit short. It's not even that their necessairly bad...but somehow flat. There is a hollowness to the characters that shouldn't be there or something. I don't know.

LOL! Sorry to burst your happy TSC bubble! It wasn't my intentions...I think because this episode was a strong one it just reminded me of how much potential the show really has! I mean if it remained dull I'd be able to bow out of it gracefully but it doesn't remain dull so I can't! Instead it's like having an itch and scratching right in the vicinity of the itch but not actually where it itches. I sit on the edge of my seat and nod and then it's like it stops a hair short before pure awesomeness and I literally growl in frustration. It's right there, you know?! I think if it combined the happenings of this episode with some of those little changes it really could have been something EPIC!

I agree.

I do find that I prefer a slower paced show to that of, say, The Vampire Diaries (honestly, it's the only show I can think to reference in terms of fast pace, I'm not pointing any fingers at it right now haha), but TSC has been moving EXTRA slow. I hope it quickens up, just a little, so we can have more happenings, as opposed to more conversations about happenings. I mean, I must commend the show on some of it's talkiness...not many shows aimed at teens, or featuring teens, allow the characters to have conversations about what's going on, but considering the bulk of what they talk about is basically just recapping what's happened up until this point, I'm willing to overlook less talk, and more action, because in the end, it furthers the plot.

At the same time...it's had some REALLY great episodes recently, so I'm going to trick myself into thinking this is how it's been planned from the start. Building up momentum, and then suddenly, all the awesomeness in the world, coming at ya.

-Opening scene was hot. Especially coming off the closing scene of TVD. It wasn't at all disturbing watching too relatively hot "teenagers" going at it and going at it hard. TSC does dark and does sexy quite well..in a more adult way than one would presume.

-Yes and No. Yes, obviously she needs to be that way and it's all empowering " I am female hear me roar" and I can't diss some adequate strong, independent female representation anywhere. But she's also kind of a bit too reckless and impulsive...but you know, on a girl that's attractive and admirable so it will forever work in her favor. Crunching up the Medallion was badass!LOVED it. I complain about her(and everyone else) but I do like Cassie.

-Ummm both! High Diana was freaking awesome. She represented the "good girls" well with that. I also love how she snapped back into responsible Diana when she needed to...that's so real. I didn't think it was a direct diss to Faye that Melissa chose Diana...she's the most maternal one..you want to be taken care of and soothed you turn to Diana. You want someone to have your back when it counts or hang out and have a good time, you go to Faye. It's a realistic portrayal of how friendships are. We have various friends who we gravitate towards for many reasons. High Diana AND High Melissa...good times right there. I wanted in on that slumber party desperately!



Now Adam.Dammit Adam! *bangs head on keyboard* I love the kid and I'm trying to remain in his corner but sometimes he doesn't give me much to work with...but sometimes he does. He did both this time around. Because he operated in extremes the whole episode. There were those moments when he made me cringe with his pathetic, puppy dog, stalker thing....I mean it's literally painful to watch him moon over some girl who hardly gives him the time of day, you shouldn't have to force someone to be in your presence or force your presence on them. He and Cassie were so much better when he was being the supportive friend that he was being up until..I don't know he and Diana broke up or whatever.then there were glimmers of hope when he was relatively reasonable and self assured when he was sending her in Jake's direction. Then Possessed Adam was a streak of brilliance...I was totally on board with it, marveling at how fantastic Thomas Dekker is capable of being when he's provided with some clever writing and then...it stopped. My reaction was quite literally WTF?! It should have lasted longer...they could have stretched out a possessed Adam for a few episodes. I don't understand why that opportunity wasn't pounced on. Possession seems to fair well for the lesser developed characters with flat personalities...I'm just sayin' . Maybe there is hope...maybe he's still secretly possessed.A girl can dream.

-Don't know. Don't care.

Melissa was AWESOME! I love this girl. I truly do.She's hilarious to watch even when the camera isn't on her. She was a total scene stealer. The overdose thing was heartbreaking, but her entire performance, though subtle was so nuanced. Just love her.

It was a really good episode and very entertaining but umm....Blackwell. That's all I'm waiting for right now.

Thoughts:

1. Okay, Chance Harbor, you've officially filled your quota of dilapidated/creepy locations. The town council really needs to do something about the health hazard from all these ships and churches.

2. TSC could do with more of the boys teaming up. Wonder Twins, unite!

3. Daddy Blackwell better not be lame after all this buildup.

4. Lee potentially stealing Faye's powers somehow makes him much more interesting.

5. Cassie's hair was great this episode. Apparently, dark magic = personal stylist?

6. Okay, I finally get the Adam/Cassie thing. Not super supportive of it, but this is the first time since the pilot that it's felt believable. Also, that scene at the end on the boat, I was totally fixated on the fact that he IS (slightly) taller than her. Did Price's recaps subliminally make me think Dekker is super short, or was he standing on a box? (That's all I could focus on!!)

7. Little disappointed that Adam got un-possessed so quickly. Evil circle members = improved circle members.

Price's Questions:

1. You're always right.

2. Her attitude makes her much less boring.

3. Possessed >>> High. Always.

4. She and Crystal were probably drinking it up at TGIFs.



Great recap, as always. Not to go all stalkery/momish on you, but the last time I remember you being "late" posting a TSC recap, was last fall(?) when you were sick. Hope you're okay! Maybe you had what the kids are calling a "social life" this weekend (unlike some of the rest of us).

I REALLY like Cassie and Adam. However he does tend to be a wet blanket most of the time, but you can tell that he's a genuinely sweet guy with a big heart. The writer's should make him a little less sever and let out the playful side of him we've seen a few times. Cassie doesn't need someone as hard-boiled as she is, she needs someone a little softer.

Does anyone else think that Diana should have "accidentally" kiss Cassie when she was on the door , you know as a mistake, *Innocent mistake* like when Lee came over and she kiss him because she confusses him with the hot pizza guy, because when Cassie was on the porche Dianna and Melissa (the new besties :P) thought for a moment that it was the hot pizza guy wanting more mouth action from Diana [just saying] if that happen'd it will be another amaizing reason 2 watch the show XD!!!

LOL! I know, right?! That would've been soooo much fun! I really did think that was going to happen... but, honestly, I think Cassie is dealing with so much, and everything related to her seems like this whirlwind in which things get caught in black magic, boy struggles, being a de facto orphan, daddy issues, mommy issues, circle issues... I really think throwing the bicurious card her way would just drag Diana into the vortex and we would have yet another subplot stringing itself into oblivion and frustrating the heck out of me.... sigh... but yeah, it would have been funny.

That opening scene was great! I love Faye & Lee, I love Faye & Jake - that girl just has chemistry with everyone. Cassie is awesome - and yay for her and Adam finally getting together!! <3 And High Diana is my new fave.
