Matt's Inside Line on Covert Affairs, Terra Nova, Parks and Rec, Justified, Smallville and More

Will Annie Walker run into the arms of a Latin lover? What mysterious crime will be committed in Terra Nova? Is Secret Circle‘s Faye about to change her tune? Read on for those answers, plus other teases from TV’s hottest shows.

The Secret Circle | Reaching into the reader mailbag, Lindsay beckons, “Can you please do The Secret Circle on Inside Line?! Please?” OK, I’m in. During a recent chat with Phoebe Tonkin, we asked if Faye will remain resolved to unbinding the Circle — and from the sound of it, the Resident Bad Girl may not be rarin’ to go solo much longer. “Even though she likes to be in control, she doesn’t like the consequences of what happen happens when the circle is not bound,” says the actress. “And she’ll also starts realizing how much they could be in danger if they don’t all get together and do magic spells together.”

The Secret Circle Sneak Peek: What's Demon Melissa Up To?!

The Secret CircleUh oh, the coven's in deep trouble!

Demons are running amuck on The Secret Circle, and to say they're causing problems for the coven is a bit of an understatement. With the demon now sitting tight inside Melissa (Jessica Parker Kennedy), her boyfriend Nick (Louis Hunter) and the rest of the witches have some drama coming their way in "Slither." It's safe to say we can't wait to see what's about to go down in Chance Harbor.

Because we're so nice, we've actually got two exclusive clips from tomorrow night's sure-to-be intense episode

In the clip above, we get to see a new side of Melissa: the demon side, which apparently likes to boss Nick around. Girl demon power! While the demon appears to be after Melissa's Book of Shadows, we're thinking it also wants something else.
"The demon has an agenda," executive producer Andrew Miller says in a preview for the episode. "The demon wants to accomplish something that will put our kids in a ton of danger. She manipulates Nick, Cassie (Britt Robertson), and Faye (Phoebe Tonkin) and then ultimately Adam (Thomas Dekker) and Diana (Shelley Hennig) to make her plan happen."
In the second clip, Nick, Cassie and Faye come to the horrifying realization that the demon is controlling Melissa. Let's just say Nick takes matters into his own hands.
"By the end of the episode, they're in this situation where the circle can't continue in the form that it's currently in and to save themselves they have to make a devastating choice," Miller ominously teases. "It's terrifying."

What's coming up on The Secret Circle? — Harriet
Fans of the books may be excited — or angry, for Adam and Cassie 'shippers — because the first inkling of something deeper between Cassie and Nick may soon be coming. "It's very, very possible," Britt Robertson says very, very coyly. "Cassie and the Armstrong family will have some sort of relationship blossom." So that'll make it a love pentagon? That's more than The Vampire Diaries!

Hart of Dixie, Secret Circle Join Full-Season Club

The CW is on a full-season pickup tear today.

On the heels of Ringer‘s back-nine order, the network has greenlit full seasons of fellow rookie dramas Hart of Dixie and The Secret Circle.

In a statement, CW president Mark Pedowitz focused on quality over ratings (none of the shows have emerged as breakout hits for the network).

“We believe in the creative strength of these dramas, and by giving them back nine orders we can give our audience the chance to enjoy complete seasons of all three of them,” said Pedowitz. “With compelling storylines, engaging characters and tremendous buzz, we firmly believe that Hart of Dixie, Ringer and The Secret Circle can become signature series for The CW, the kind of top-notch shows that are synonymous with our brand.” (As opposed to, say, reality dud H8R, which was whacked after only a handful of airings.)

Hart of Dixie Exclusive: Dawson’s Creek Alum to Play [Spoiler Alert]!

For those keeping track at home, Dixie, Secret Circle and Ringer join Fox’s New Girl, NBC’s Up All Night and Whitney, and CBS’ 2 Broke Girls in this fall’s full-season club.

Executive Producer Andrew Miller Previews “Slither”

The Secret Circle Preview: Shelley Hennig and Thomas Dekker Reignite Diana and Adam's Spark

Spicing up their romance, though, won’t necessarily be easy, considering the two have been together for three years — which in high school terms roughly translates to a very long time.

“I don’t think they’re tired of each other,” says Thomas Dekker during a Vancouver set visit arranged by Warner Bros TV. “But ultimately, the oxymoron of what’s great about their relationship and what’s bad about it is [how] comfortable they are together.” The two have an “unspoken language” and an ability to really be “at ease” with each other, but it comes with a downside. “It’s not necessarily exciting in that same way [that it used to be],” continues Dekker. “It’s sort of like a long marriage. Maybe in teen years, that’s what it is.”
For Shelley Hennig, it’s that “really strong and long history” that make Diana and Adam a couple to root for — despite Adam and Cassie’s pull toward each other. “Diana and Adam have a really special connection and a really great relationship, regardless of what’s happening with Cassie,” she says, comparing the couple’s romance to The Notebook and Sweet Home Alabama, movies where you find yourself wanting the heroine to reconnect with her first love. “I don’t know about you, but when I watch, I always want them to go back to their roots,” she explains.

Question: I’m totally hooked on The Secret Circle! Would you happen to have any scoop? —Lucyanne
Britt Robertson says the show’s Halloween episode will be chock full of tricks and treats. “When you have witches and Halloween, it can be fun to make fun of certain things,” she says. “What I love about what Kevin [Williamson] and Andrew [Miller] did is they weren’t trying to ignore the fact that we’re witches on Halloween. … We play with a lot of different, funny things. And one of our directors, Liz [Friedlander], who is a big part of our show, was saying, ‘The great thing about Halloween is that scary things can happen in the middle of the night and there’s people roaming the streets. You can scream [but] nobody really takes notice to it.’ So that’s kind of the fun element that we get to play with a lot.”
