Thanks to TV Guide I can share some spoilery scoop for The Secret Circle. Now that the Circle is broken, what does that mean for our third generation witches and is there an answer to their raging magic?
With Nick gone, the circle is broken and it makes them a little more vulnerable. They need to figure out an answer around that and Jake will play a role in that answer. The whole idea of the track that they were on, [even with Faye's objections], just feels so differently when one of their own is lost because of it. They see magic a little bit differently. Their interest in creating a new full circle gets complicated because of that.
This demon thing is a force of evil that has its roots in [what happened] 16 years ago, so it just further complicates what's already pretty mysterious. [The coven] and Dawn and Charles are playing with fire. The closer they bring these kids to the events of 16 years ago, the worse things are going to get.
