Previously on "the secret circle"...

16 years ago, what Blackwell really wanted

from the circle was children.

Enough Balcoin blood

to ensure that the next circle would be dark

at its very core.

We found out that my father

made sure that our parents got pregnant

so that he could come back and use our circle.

Blackwell's using them to build a crystal skull.

He says he needs it to fight the witch hunters.

We can't give the most evil man we know

the world's most powerful w*apon.

Eben got away.

- Where's Faye? - He took her.

But we have the sixth crystal.

We can build the skull.

We can save her.


Please just tell me I've been asleep for two straight days

and we're halfway across the country.

Not quite.

You fell asleep two hours ago, halfway to the brew.

I didn't think you wanted to go back home,

so I parked.

I like my version better.


I'm sorry.

It's been doing that all night.

I glanced over a couple times,

just to make sure that it was no...

wake-up warranted emergencies.

But it was just some stuff about Faye

and a guy named Eben.

I have to go. Like usual.

Because an uninterrupted moment with you

is just too much to ask for

do you really want me to take you across the country?

I will, you know.

I know.

And I do. Someday.



I don't think you realize I'm a very powerful witch.

Without your friends,

you're nothing but a little girl in a cheap dress.

This dress is not cheap.


Can I borrow your phone?

Give me your hands!

Let's see what your life's worth.

♪ La da da da da ♪

♪ da da da da da ♪

♪ da da da da da da ♪

We have to find her.

There has to be some spell, right?

Not that we know of, or have ever done.

Why can't we just ask your father?

No. No way.

You didn't tell them?

Yes. I told them every horrible detail.

We know what he did.

We know Blackwell manipulated our parents

into creating our circle.

But we still need help.

He's a lying, power hungry lunatic.

We came together because our power as a circle

is stronger than it was individually.

Let's use that to get Faye.

The six of us together couldn't stop Samuel,

and he only had one demon in him. Eben has six.

It's her.


No. But I have her right here.

Don't you dare touch her.

Bring a crystal to the ferry boat

where I k*lled your parents.

Or she'll burn like they did.

Why? The demons running around your brain isn't

doing it for you?

You need some extra crystal magic?

No, I like the demons very much.

Which is why I need one of your crystals

so you can't form the crystal skull.

He'll trade Faye for one crystal.

Ok, we do it.

And trust Eben?

He'll never give Faye up.

The only chance Faye has is if we k*ll Eben

before he hurts her.

And the only way to do that is with the crystal skull.

Are you sure?

The only reason we think that

is because Blackwell told us,

and we know we can't trust him.

My grandfather said that it's the most dangerous

w*apon ever created.

Eben only wants a crystal so that we can't form

the crystal skull.

It must be the way to k*ll him.

And Blackwell is the only one

who knows how to work it.

And we'd have to be there to put it together.


Balcoin blood.

According to Blackwell,

we're not only connected to the crystals,

we're also connected to the skull.

Look, whether we trust him or not,

it's better for you to be there.

That way you can make sure Blackwell

and the skull get to that boat.

We'll meet you there.

We need a backup plan

if the skull doesn't come through.

If we stay away from Eben,

our circle magic can stop the witch hunters.

Ok. I guess that is our best chance.

After Faye's safe,

then we can figure out how to deal with Blackwell,

using the strength of our circle.

I hope it's not too late.

Thank God you called.

Dawn, I think Amelia was here.


Everything that I did when I k*lled her,

it happened to me.

First, the water.

Then flames.

I know it sounds insane--

Not really.

Blackwell told me he wanted to destroy you.

That Diana's loyalty to you was getting in his way.

So he wanted me to think that I was being haunted by Amelia's ghost.

And I did just what he wanted.

I admitted to Diana that I k*lled Amelia.

She ran out, and I haven't been able to reach her since.

I can't find Faye, either.

Something terrible is happening, Charles.

And our blind quest for power helped set it all in motion.

We're the ones that brought Cassie Blake back home.

We have to get our powers back

and help the circle.

And there's one person that can make that happen.

There he is.

That's where my mother d*ed.

All of our mothers.

I thought I'd feel closure or something, but I don't.

I just feel angry.

I know.

Wow, this place is beautiful.

Ceremonies here date back

to our ancestors' first arrival in Chance Harbor.

What do we have to do?

In order to create the skull,

we first have to destroy each family crystal

and let their energies reform...

back into their original collective shape.

But in doing so,

your powers are no longer connected to a crystal.

Or to each other.

Which means your circle will be unbound.

No. No way. We can't unbind the circle.

Not without talking to the others.

This is the only way to create the skull.

- Diana. - What?

The circle makes us stronger, remember?

What if this is the only way?

It can't be.

I'm afraid it is.

Now look, I know it's hard to accept.

They are waiting for us at the ferry.

Our friends.

Where the witch hunters are.

What happens to them if we unbind?

I'm not sure.

But what I do know is what happens

if we don't put together the skull.

Faye dies.

We don't have a choice.

Let's get started.

Each one of you come forward,

take two crystals.

Come on.

Come on.

Now what?

We wait for the skull to come to us.

Let's go.

Go where?

We're waiting for Cassie and Diana.

We'll come back.

I have to see if Faye's ok.


Don't be an idiot.

We're only going up against the witch hunters

if the skull plan falls through.

It's too dangerous.

Did you guys feel that?

Yeah, like my heart skipped a b*at.

I felt it, too.

Look, I'm getting on that boat, ok?

They won't see me.

I have to know she's alive.

Jake, stop!

Ahh! Aah!

What the hell?

You two are ganging up on me now?

What happened to the circle's our strength?

I didn't do it, I swear.

No, no. It was me. I felt it.

I have my solo magic back.

That means the circle's not bound anymore.

I am calling Cassie and Diana.

None of us are getting on that boat

until we figure out what is going on.


Please let this be happening.

Oh, I am so back.

My phone.

Who's the little girl now?

Hello, mother.

Where's Diana?

We don't know.

Something's happened to the circle,

and we need our powers back to track them down.

Faye. Are you all right?

Mom, I'm so, so sorry,

but I've kind of got myself into a lot of trouble

and I need your help.

The thing is, I know I'm a witch.

I know. Just tell me where you are.

How did you know? Have you been reading my journal?

Faye, it doesn't matter. Just tell me where you are.

Eben has us on the ferry boat.

I can't get out because they're guarding all the exits.

Eben? Oh, my God.

Look, I'm coming to get you, all right?

He has demons in him, mom.

So if you've got any kick-ass magic you've been hiding,

now would be the time to whip it out.


Faye? Faye!

Get off me.

She's on the ferry.

- Is Diana with her? - I don't know.

Look, I know you wish you could've done more

to stop what happened 16 years ago.

Please, let's not let it happen again.

Your power was destroyed when we stripped it.

It can't be restored.

So I'm going to give you mine.

It's coming.

Cassie, what are you doing?

I can feel it.


Pick it up while it's still forming.

Pick it up.

Its power is amazing.


It's ok.

In fact, it's awesome.

Whatever happens, do not remove your hands.

It's done.

Cassie, we are really worried.

Call me.

Something is definitely wrong.

What if Blackwell did something to them?

Eben is expecting a crystal.

How long do you think he's gonna--

Ok, is there anything other than death

that could unbind the circle?

I don't know. I hope so.

But I'm getting Faye out of there.

How, Jake?

Our power isn't as strong if we're unbound.

I don't know. But right now she's more alone than we are.

I'm not letting her die in there.

I'm coming with you.

I have to go back for Cassie and Diana.


Be careful.

Call me when you know anything.

I will.

Hey, Adam.

Try not to get k*lled.

You, too.

It's ready.

Why can't I hold it?

No. They are waiting for us.

Every second counts.

This is gonna stop Eben,

k*ll the demons inside him?


Just hard to imagine.

It's so beautiful.

The skull reflects your own power

without limitations.

It's like you said, I felt my connection to it.

But Diana's right.

We're in a hurry. Just give it back to me.

Why can't I be the one to use the skull against Eben?

'Cause your dark magic isn't advanced enough.

And you don't know what you're dealing with.

Now give it to me.

Yeah, why can't Cassie do it?

She's just as connected to it as you are.

If she needs help, you can guide her.

Nice touch.

Playing up your connection to the skull.

What do you mean?

I just want to be the one to k*ll Eben.

We all have the same goal, right?

No, Cassie, we don't have the same goal.

But we will.

Can you give us a minute?

Of course.

Thank you.

I need to tell you something.

I've learned that Diana's not my daughter.

Of course she is.

Blood doesn't define a family.

You've love that beautiful girl since birth,

and so have I.

You knew?

I suspected.

But it made no difference.

She's ours.

I can't let anything happen to her.

Charles, the demons Eben harbors

can't simply be k*lled,

not without the crystal skull.

I know there's another way.

This is my chance for redemption

and to do something worthy of my daughter.

But I need your help.


Jake, what are you doing here?

Nice to see you, too.

If anything had happened to you,

I don't know what I would have--

I'm ok. Thank you for coming.

Guys, there will be plenty of time to cry

if we can get out of here.




I can't move.

Time to die.


Shh. Shh. Shh.

I'm sorry,

but I need you both here.

But we need the skull to stop Eben...

Who's on the ferry.

Yeah. Maybe some of the others will find a way to stop him,

but it doesn't really matter.

Why doesn't it matter?

I know this is hard to understand,

but everything that I have done,

everything that I'm doing, is for you.

Soon you'll be free.

Free to finally be the witches you were always meant to be.

The ash is blocking our power.

I'm getting really tired of these robes

and this stupid pole.

Your friends abandoned you.

I may not have the crystal,

but at least I'll have the pleasure

of watching you burn.

You don't have to do this.

But I do.

Because of what you are.


You do realize you're full of demons,

amongst other things.

Condemning us?

You're the one that should burn.

You should be grateful, Jake.

Now you can finally join your parents.





Oh, God. It's not just Faye.

He's got three of them.

Go around the other way.

I'll deal with him.

Charles, are you sure?


Exire daemonem voco.

What are you doing? Exire daemonem voco.

What are you doing?

Exire daemonem voco. Exire daemonem voco.

Exire daemonem voco.

Exe daemonem voco.




Exire daemonem voco.

Exire daemonem voco.

Exire daemonem voco.

Where's Eben? Come on.

Take them. I'll meet you outside.

What are you doing? Jake!


This isn't over.

It is for you.


This is for my parents...

and Nick.

Did you ever plan on k*lling Eben?

You didn't, did you?

You just needed Eben to scare us

into finding the crystals.

Witch hunters have always been the best way

to galvanize witches.

You did it before, 16 years ago.

You led our parents to the same ferry boat

to fight the witch hunters.

You left them to die.

Why manipulate them into having children,

then send them off to be k*lled?

So we'd become orphans?

A circle of broken, vulnerable, easy to manipulate witches,

desperate to find a leader to help battle our enemies.

But my mother figured it out.

She tried to get the others not to go.

She and Ethan tried to k*ll you.


That was disappointing.

But it gave me a good opportunity

to disappear and wait

for you to be ready.

Which you are.


Charles, what have you done?

Tell Diana that I love her.

Ego vocare te tenebris magicae.

Exsurge hunc crystallo.

Ego vocare te tenebris magicae.

Exsurge hunc crystallo.

Ego vocare te tenebris magicae.

Exsurge hunc crystallo.

If you're not using the skull to k*ll witch hunters,

what is it for?

To k*ll witches.

Every single one without Balcoin blood.

What's happening?

I feel like I'm burning from the inside.

How can you k*ll witches?

Because they're weak. And their weaknesses

kept us victims for 2,000 years.

But the time's finally come for a cleansing.

Let's scorch the earth.

Let's burn the weak blooded.

And clear the way.

For what?

The other Balcoin children.

4 more born in other towns,

raised in other circles.

And they're coming here to join you.

Jake's grandfather was right.

You want to build a circle of Balcoin witches.

The perfect circle, the purest race.

Together you will be a w*apon more powerful

than any crystal skull.

You'll be able to destroy the witch hunters once and for all.

And anything that stands in your way.

We can change the world.

As a family.




The skull's burning him.

It's burning all of them.


My dark magic, it's not strong enough.

What do we do?

I need your power.

Cassie, what are you doing?

What are you doing?

k*lling you.

Together we're stronger than he is.

What are you doing?

Reversing the spell.





Stop fighting it.

We share the same blood.

We're the same.

Look, none of this should have ever happened.

I just...I wanted so badly to believe in him.

John Blackwell fooled all of us.

Yeah, but I should have known it was wrong.

And I am sorrier than any of you will ever know.

That's behind us.

Now we have to destroy the skull

so nothing like this can ever happen again.

How? I thought it was indestructible.

We could surround it with lead

to block its power and so no one can ever detect it

and, I don't know, throw it in the middle of the ocean.

I've used it before.

Its power is more than I have ever experienced.

It's dark and seductive.

Look, I don't want to go near it.

Fine, I'll do it.

Definitely not you.

Then who?

Ex-witch hunter,

evil princess number two?


No one's more reliable.

Thank you for coming to save us today.

I was useless.

Blackwell's power was too strong.

Yeah, Adam should ditch the skull.

All those moral merit badges should add up to something.

Ok, I'll do it.

Creating this horrible thing is what broke our circle.

But we can't stay that way.

Being divided is what Blackwell wanted.

You want to rebind the circle?

Maybe we shouldn't.

With Eben gone and Blackwell,

maybe we should just lay low for a while.

People, ghosts, demons,

they all started coming after us once we were bound.

It might be safer if we're not.

Well, we can still be together,

even if we're not bound.

When you showed up on the boat

and saved my ass,

I knew we were connected, even if it's not official anymore.

Ok, look, Blackwell said there are more Balcoins coming.

Everything he did, everyone he k*lled,

or tried to,

it's all because he wanted Diana and I

to be a part of a Balcoin circle.

But the six of us being bound together,

I mean, that's our greatest protection

from letting that ever happen.

I can't.

I'm sorry. I...

I'm leaving town, so I guess that's it.

Diana, wait.

Diana, wait!

I have to get away from here,

from the memories of all this.

I'm--I'm sorry about Charles.

He saved all of us.

He also did some terrible things,

some unforgivable things.

Please stay.

Bound or not, you are my sister.

And you are the only family I have left.

No matter where I go,

that is never gonna change.

But I have got to get out of here.

I've lost everything.

I honestly don't even know who I am anymore.

No one understands that better than me.

Ok, that's exactly how I felt when I came to Chance Harbor,

but you--you took care of me.

Now, please, just let me help you now.

I know you had to activate my dark magic for us to get free,

but now that I've felt its power,

I never want to feel it again.

I cannot get away from dark magic

and be with you at the same time.

I'm sorry.

Hey. Come on.

Let me take you home.


But I have plans.

Really? Yep.

Between being kidnapped by witch hunters

and almost dying, you made plans?


Maybe some other time.

Yeah...Definitely another time.

Ahem. Hey.

I didn't know if you'd actually be here.

Neither did I.

You sure about this?


Are you sure?

What the hell's going on?

We're celebrating.

What, exactly?

Being alive. And having our solo magic back, of course.

Get dressed, we're going out.

I know that one fits you.

Faye, it's Sunday night in Chance Harbor.

There's nothing going on.

You've got it all wrong.

Think big.

We have solo magic.

We can make this town whatever we want.


Ok, I like it.

So our new motto is less being b*rned at the stake

and more fun.


To solo magic.

About damn time.

Who is that?

The hot taxi driver I ordered.

Yeah, of course.
