Cassie befriends Sally Matthews, a non-witch, in attempt to distance herself from the Circle and build a normal life in Chance Harbor. Faye uses her powers to push Sally away at a Fair by the Harbor resulting in Sally being temporary dead - I wonder if this is the scene from the book where Cassie finds the body at the bottom of the hill??
It turns out the mystery man at the start of episode one that Kills Cassie's mum is in league with Dawn Chamberlain they have both have had the powers removed but are able to do some magic with the aid of a crystal - Dawn murders her father in law by giving him a heart attack when he threatens to report her to some council.
Cassie is still experimenting with her powers, looks hot in a mini skirt. Where the episodes are filmed the background scenery is still tops.
