In next week's episode, "Fire & Ice" Jake will be “lurking” a lot explains Chris Zylka. He goes on to reveal, “One thing about Jake is that he never needs the validation of whether or not he’s a good person. He just wants to prove it to himself. So he’s looking over everyone as much as he can until he knows it’s the right time to make a move. That will be in [Episode] 12.”
Zylka also spoiled about episode 12, "Witness", teasing a “a big, big, big emotional episode” that will focus mostly on Jake's witch hunter ties.
“The cast really, really, really shows up and hits it out of the park,” he says. “The overall feeling from everyone after we wrapped that episode was kind of joyful.” But that’s not to say the episode is all sunshine and rainbows. (Do either of those ever happen in Chance Harbor?) “It’s terrifying and scary, and a big emotional scene,” he says. “There are going to be a few answers to some questions that the circle has had in the past nine episodes answered, finally. Or so we think.”
