My Review of The Secret Circle 1.22 SERIES FINALE- Family


Eben closes in on the Circle as they try to figure out how to rescue Faye, Charles and Dawn take steps to help, Blackwell's plans are revealed, and a witch makes a major sacrifice....

Notice that I didn't say the *ULTIMATE* sacrifice, just a major one.  Charles, after getting magical power again, took the demons from Eben into himself and then threw himself into the river to avoid being a danger to the Circle or to anyone else.  While the Circle thinks he is dead, he was in fact taken by his mother who carved the symbols to contain the demons in him, so he is now catatonic with demons.  Mid season finale plot point anyone?

Blackwell's plans were diabolical.  He planned to use the crystal skull to kill all non-Balcoin witches, call his 4 other children to Chance Harbor, and start a Balcoin Circle.  Again, not a good thing.  And the steps Cassie took to stop him, while necessary, weren't nice either.  After they reassembled the skull, Blackwell imprisoned Cassie and Diana in a magic circle.  To get them out, Cassie attacked Diana magically, forcing Diana's black magic to the surface in order to force both of them out of the magic circle.  Cassie then took the skull and tried to reverse the magic to kill Blackwell.  It worked once she got an assist from Diana.  They then decided to get rid of the skull and entrusted it to Adam's care figuring that as the purest member of the Circle, he would be uncontaminated by its black magic.  They were wrong though.....

It was nice to see Jake and Melissa working together to rescue Faye.  As a part of reassembling the skull, Cassie and Diana unbound the Circle, thus giving each Circle member back their solo magic, which Faye discovered and used with relish.  But they were not powerful enough to stop Eben.  It took a newly re-empowered Dawn to rescue them after Charles took the demons into himself.  And the magic the adults can do with a wave of their hands is interesting.  Wonder how things will change now that everyone is on the same page.

Diana has left Chance Harbor with Grant, Adam is fondling the skull, Jake received a disturbing note along with a necklace from his grandfather, Blackwell is dead, Charles is in a coma, Faye and Melissa are enjoying their powers again, and Cassie is left all alone.  Next season will be interesting...
