Cassie and Faye learn the true reason behind Heather's unique condition. It involves snakes.| Published Oct 7, 2011
Oh dear. Things aren't looking good for sweet Melissa right now, are they? This week's installment of The Secret Circle dove right into the cliffhanger mystery we were left with at the end of last week -- what did Amelia do to Heather the night of the infamously fatal fire? Well, we were given our answer (sort of), but the members of the Circle are still as lost and confused as ever. More than anything, this week's episode dealt with the hellish emotional aftermath of the painful event that took out most of their parents. Yes, we also had a Cassie/Faye Hardy Boys style mystery, and a new demonic plot to boot. But when you get down to the nuts and bolts of it, these kids are nothing but a group of sad quasi-orphans trying to fill some sort of emotional void, be it with sex or magic or some good old-fashioned mystery-solvin'. As Faye put it, they're "a boat full of sad witches."
