Ok, just who was the girl who could see Cassie on the boat during the memory/flashback?
I still don't like Jake,even though this week he shows some emotions, I still don't like his way of acting, it really feels fake.
But I see the connection between him and Cassie,he pushes her to understand and look for the truth instead of shielding her like Adam is trying to do.
Ethan is getting interesting,could he be the villain that we need?I would love to hate him...
Team Jake for sure! And I don't think that Diana's assessment was quick - Faye said it in the midseason finale when Jake found them to go save Cassie.
I am so pleased people are coming over to the Team Jake side. Absolutely loved the scene where he saved her. Unreal. p.s. Hilarious idea about the "Dark Magic drinking game", hilarious. Still, amazing show. It looks to me like Adam's dad is making all of that "made in the stars" stuff up and is actually a crazy person. This episode showed that he plotted the fire and the capture of John Blackwell out of jealousy of him. Hence the alcoholism and why he wont talk about he fire. And why he wants Cassie with Adam. It's all coming together now. Love it.
Loved the introduction into the episode! They cut right to the story from the begging!
CASSIE! I think it's great she doesn't negate the connection with Jake! Cassie's magic was strong enough to keep them her in the past! Lucy is the character who will be played by ex GA star(the one who played Rose, she is a psychic)
JAKE!I really enjoyed him today!Not bad!
DAWN/CHARLES!i love they are going at each other!But Dawn is so smart she plays a hard game/double game!
FAYE!Callum WTF?Unnecessary character introduction! Interested where they are heading with this story! But OK, "Devils Spirit"! Let's see where they are heading?
ADAM!I don't buy his act at all! Really doesn't fit the character! But Ethan being a double crosser, doing everything to get down JB! Not the fine British way.
DIANA and MELISSA IRRELEVANT as always!So sad!But seems like Mel gets an drug addiction, the new Adrianna of CW!
Miss Jane by the way!
Better than the last 2 but still suffers from poor writing and plotting. The magic was better. The new info advanced the plot thankfully. But we don't know half? the parents' circle so that limited interest in following events and caring who sided with whom. The connection between Cassie seeing young Faye and Cassie seeing Jake' memory was fuzzy. Ethan's character transplant? Faye's story was all right but still setting-up. Lee is super boring. Callum's more interesting.
Unless the memory was than a memory for Cassie??? There was that young woman who saw/talked to Cassie and Cassie was choking on smoke.
Jake was surprisingly good this week. The whole thing with his parents finally made him show some emotions. Keep it up. I’m rather Team Jake at this point. Adam tried to hold on to Diana for so long and then suddenly went with his feelings for Cassie. But what really annoys me is how everything is too dangerous in his opinion. Cassie’s power is out of control, but being afraid of it doesn’t really help. She needs to make peace with it. She needs to believe it doesn’t have to be evil, otherwise she’s screwed. At least Jake makes her do things.
Faye is acting like she wants to break the record of doing all the stupid things in one week. First trusting some random shady dude to per form creepy ritual, then trying to steal power, and now drugs with even more random shady dude. Does she have a brain at all?
Everything else about this episode was fairly good. I love how they focused on Ethan. I was expecting him to become more important over time. Now we know he was there the day of the fire. Cool. Btw, Dawn was pretty desperate to come to Ethan for help, wasn’t she?
The trip into Jake’s memory was great (except for the fact that he was simply not capable of seeing and hearing all that, but let’s drop it). So we finally know the truth about who started the damn fire, we have alive John Blackwell (I was kind of expecting that) who betrayed Amelia, and we have the woman who apparently was able to see Cassie when she was in Jake’s head (seriously, who the hell was that?).
Team jake!!!Adam really annoys me!!He's acting like he owns Cassie!This episode was more intriguing than last week's one,and for some reason I cant help but guess that Ethan is really Cassie's dad...his voice...his shadiness in the flashback...im probably wrong haha
The B story with Ethan, Dawn and Charles was so bleh. Ethan is a gullible idiot. No way will he be able to hold off the seduction of power. And how can he live with himself when he caused Jake's fathers death.
That was the most heart breaking scene! My word the hunters are worse than John Blackwell At least he killed the hunters. Well that is all we saw.
I wonder if they are going to talk about the ancestors and the master tools. That would be an excellent story. The master tools.
A+ ep, can't wait for feb!
I like the attempt by the writers to use a different method to do a flash back but it wasn't well thought out. Cassie shouldn't have seen everything she saw simply because Jake didn't see everything.
What they should have done is explain somehow that Cassie was about to use the Jake's connection to that memory to see more than what he actually saw. Oh well.
They didn't explain how one of the girls saw Cassie. That was a major wtf moment.
I like that there is some sort of heading and I hope to see more good eps like this.
Team Margarita....because that's what I'll start needing to ease my frustrations while watching...and I don't even drink. This episode was better than it was last week but I still want more. I agree with @Rande on...everything. This show can't be solely based on Cassie. A show is only as good as its least developed character...which is everyone but Cassie.Where was Melissa?Why are Adam&Diana certified props?The episode was better this week but the payoff is glacial.
I want to know who this Lucy is and why she could see Cassie. I rewatched the episode Loner because they show the article about the fire and it doesn't mention any Lucy in the deceased
Ok so I know all this i'm posting wasnt mentioned in this review, but I read a different review and wrote this then couldn't post it, so I decided to share here
Casssie can still do magic alone and faye can't because faye isnt a blake. I think its the combination of two powerful magical lines that allows cassie to perform alone, not just her balcoin magic. Also when faye tried to steal cassies magic in fire/ice, the reason the spell took the circles magic and not cassies was because the dark magic in faye recognized the dark magic in cassie and decided they were allies and arn't after the only magic that wasnt its twin. I think its kinda like in harry potter, how voldemort couldn't hurt harry because harry was a horcrux(a piece of his soul).
Hopefully Melissa was off finding herself a legitimate storyline? Too soon?
Diana was definitely quick to jump the gun with her assessment of Jake's feelings for Cassie, although they are teenagers, so that may actually be accurate.
Easily the best episode in a good long time. Serious plot development, only some dumb stuff (looking at you Faye) and the return of the parents makes it seem less like a teen-problem. Our take: http://wp.me/p1VQBq-lt
Also when jake and cassie were doing the memory spell at first and he had tears in his eyes I was like aww look at chris zylka finally acting lamo
While I have to say this episode was an improvement over last week's one I still felt a lil disappointed over the "unique" flashback. When cassie and jake first showed up on that dock in his memory I was like yes! But too many plotholes were glaring me in the face and I really wanted to see ethan, charles, dawn and amelia back then..u kno characters that we actually know and are vested in??
VDluv I totally agree! Its not that I loved the character of Nick so much but there was definitely so much more potential there! Think about it, what would the dynamic be like between Nick and his brother Jake? I'm sure they haven't seen each other in awhile so that would be awkward. And there was so much more possibility with the relationship between Nick and Melissa. Since he died I have not rooted for any relationship on this show! I like a show that has the balls to kill off main characters, but they definitely shouldve waited longer than 5 episodes! We didnt even really know him yet.
I love this show yet I know that season one storyline could have included a living nick for longer and killing him off in the finale not in the fifth episode...that way things would have evolved slowly and made more sense..sometimes I feel like it is too rushed and like the writers are trying too hard!
.....Also, as much as I wanted to know what happened on the boat 16 years ago, this was a complete PLOTHOLE. Like you said, how can she see things Jake didnt even see? Shes going through HIS memory! And who was that random girl that could see her and spoke to her? That was never explained. I just found that entire scene to be contrived.
We NEED a real villain on this show. I'm seriously getting tired of the same thing happening every single episode, and it doesnt help that this airs right after the amazing Vampire Diaries each week!
Thanks SC Writers! Please take all of this into consideration.
Dear SC Writers,
Please use the character of Melissa more. She could be so wonderful but instead you have her pop up randomly looking depressed about Nick and then she disappears for an episode or so. I like Cassie but she cant be the ONLY character developed on the show!
I'm also getting tired of the whole Diana and Adam are constantly alone together trying to save Cassie even though its awkward because they broke up OVER Cassie. I appreciate Diana's maturity, but at this point she's just looking pathetic by constantly being cool with her very recent ex-boyfriend pining over Cassie in front of her!
The character of Lee may be hot but he is completely useless. Why is Faye hanging out with him? And why was she comfortable staying in the garage with that drug addicted psycho? She barely knows Lee and now she wants to stay with some other random guy. I get they want to make her tough and badass, doesn't mean she has to be stupid....
TEAM JAKE! And, I think Cassie should do something with her hair, maybe have some curls? Soft curls. I like soft curls. And oh yeah.. TEAM JAKE!
Oh and Jake/Adam question - Team Jake because he does have a lot of chemistry with Cassie. Adam and Diana need to get back together and ignore the whole 'destiny' crap that his dad proclaimed. Didn't work out for him and Cassie's mom did it?
It was a better episode than alot of them. Sometimes I space out completely during the episodes. Cassie became such a Mary Sue character - all the guys wanted her, she has such special and unique powers, blah blah blah. They need to flesh out some of the other stories instead of them all just there when Cassie needs them. Diana and Adam need more of a story. Faye needs a decent story and Melissa needs to either get a story or leave. She's really the weak link there since she's hardly ever in the episodes. And what's the deal with Cassie's grandmother - does she even remember Cassie has magic? Is she still helping her out?
