The Secret Circle Episode 12 : Witness


This episode started with Jake's line "Am I interrupting something?"

Jake came back as we know and has been lurking around since the past two episodes. It always leaves us something to think about this person on what he really wants to do in Cassie's life. The "Witness" keeps us excited on the love-triangle created since the episode "Beneath".

Right, that interrupted kiss gave chills when Jake stepped in to the scene trying to be the "avenging angel" as what Adam sees him returning to Chance Harbor. Jake now told Cassie the truth about the fire that he was there at the fire 16 years ago and he was the only "witness" they could use to know what really happened. Although it was a dangerous attempt, Cassie was so desperate in knowing the truth. Jake was away trying to figure out a spell that could enable him to travel back to his memory and recall those things that he tried to block off when he was young which is said to be traumatic on his part. Cassie tries to convince Adam about the plan but of course, initial reaction is a "No". Normal response from a guy who doesn't trust the other guy that he might put "his" girl in danger or might even kill her after he gets what he needed.

Diana on the other hand is willing to do the spell if this is the only and immediate way to know the past. Whereas Faye and Melissa are out of the business at this period in time, they are unaware of what was going on. Melissa was away for away in Seattle while Faye is busy with Lee making him play an important part of her life.

There are parts of this episode where we see clashes between Dawn and Charles and Ethan and Charles. Dawn being so desperate to get the crystal for her thirst of regaining back her powers, she started to use Diana to get to Charles then used Ethan when she realized she can't get Charles join forces with her again.

So then, the moment began with Cassie and Jake going down to the memory lane. The spell that Jake has been working on while he was away from Chance Harbor worked and they went back in time like they were physically present on the day of the fire. Jake had a very surprised look on his face the minute he saw his parents passed in front of him. Cassie followed them because she can barely hear the conversion for clues. Unfortunately, Jake could follow further because his memory blocked most of this part when he was young. Now, Jake and Cassie got separated and Jake was back in his self.

Cassie discovered an intriguing appearance of Ethan in the scenario. Witch hunters were at the boat and they murdered all those witches in the boat including Jake's parents.

She also witnessed how the witch hunters persecuted her father like the ancient method of burning witches at the stake. As the place started to burn, Cassie is now trapped and starting to choke.

 Lucy, a fellow witch, saw her and the only one who can see her in the memory, told her to get out of there. But of course, Cassie didn't rather she stayed.

                              Adam and Diana came to the abandoned house and found Cassie left in limbo. Adam, as furious as hell, commanded Jake to get her out of the memory. Cassie's father tried to free himself  using a medallion driving the flames away from him to the witch hunters. He walked away but Cassie never got the chance to see his face. 

Jake came back and rescued Cassie just in time. But before they left, Jake's mom appeared behind the glass door begging for help but Jake couldn't do anything to help her out. He couldn't undo the past and the events are locked to how it really happened, except for Lucy seeing Cassie in this time in the past.

Cassie told Diana, Adam and Jake what she saw in the memory about the witch hunters and Adam's father's appearance on that day. Cassie then went back to the boatyard at the same spot where the fire started and at the same platform where her father was standing. She pulled the medallion from the rail on the floor where she saw her father dropped it after he used it on the witch hunters.
