Top 5 Secret Circle Predictions For 2012
With just two episodes left before The Secret Circle takes a mid-season break until 2012 it’s anyone’s guess as to how the remaining episodes will play out next year. If you’ve been watching the show you’ll know that just about anything is possible. That said, we’re going out on a limb with some crazy Circle theories that may just get to see the light of day before the first season ends.
1. Cassie Will Explore Her Dark Side
We can see the first signs already with this one. Ethan may insist that Cassie is Amelia’s daughter but is he overlooking the fact she is also Blackwell’s – the man he described in the pilot episode as a bad man? Cassie’s abilities are growing stronger every day. In Masked we saw her use her individual power to save Diana’s life even when it shouldn’t have been physically possible. And with Jake around to nudge her in the wrong direction, we think good girl Cassie may be about to take a walk on the wild side.
2. Adam Will Discover a Deeper Purpose (Beyond Being Boyfriend Material)
We’ve been hearing a lot about how Adam and Cassie are written in the stars and that it’s generally not a good idea to mess with fate. But what if these warnings go deeper than romantic love? Suppose Adam’s purpose is to temper Cassie’s darker impulses? Without him she might be fated to repeat her father’s mistakes. As much as I really like Adam and Diana, I’m intrigued by the idea that the fates of the Blake and Conant families are interwoven in a manner which touches on something dark and powerful.
3. A Parent Will Be Murdered
The CW is not averse to offing the older generation when the need calls for it so it wouldn’t be all that surprising to see either Charles, Ethan or Dawn sleeping with the Chance Harbor fishes by the end of the first season. Let’s assess each character’s current situation.
Ethan: I’ve mentioned before that I think Ethan is wasted in that back room of the bar in more ways than one. Ethan’s character has a lot of great potential that hasn’t come to the fore yet this season. (We’re still hankering for that manly Charles/Ethan showdown.) killing Ethan would be wasting an opportunity to do something far better with him instead. We trust the writers will make the best decision with this one.
Charles: Charles has been under Dawn’s thumb since day one, but Nick’s death brought about a change in his character. Beneath sees a darker, more confident Charles beginning to emerge. Unwilling to be used as a pawn, Charles is now calling the shots – and pocketing that crystal! We think Charles is finally going places. It would make no sense to end that journey prematurely.
Dawn: With Charles starting to emerge as the big bad we all heard about before the pilot aired, will Dawn become superfluous to requirements? Dawn has been the character with the hidden agenda and all the answers we’re not fully privy to this season, but as much as we may love the idea of a power struggle between these two, outcomes usually involve a single winner.
4. Jake Will Die
Live by the sword, die by the sword. We all want to like Jake and his plunging V-neck. Caught up with the sinister Isaac and his crew of Witch Hunters, Jake has it all wrong about a lot of things. But let’s face it, the guy has done some jaw-droppingly bad things and he’s only been on the show for two episodes. Cold blooded murders generally don’t go unpunished on TV, and it’s kind of easy to imagine Jake repenting, turning on his witch-hunting buddies and paying the ultimate price for his betrayal. If Jake does die it may leave room for number 4 below to happen.
5. Nick Will Return
When we last spoke to actor Louis Hunter about Nick, he told ScreenSpy in no uncertain terms that Nick was very much dead at this point in time. Then he threw us into a tail-spin by saying “Even though he is definitely and well and truly six feet under by now there is a possibility that within the next two seasons, three seasons, maybe even this season that he could come back.” Of course, no one really knows what the writers may have in store for us in 2012 but the fact Nick is continually referenced on the show may be an indicator we’re not supposed to forget about him just yet.
