Okay – to be honest – I wasn’t really looking forward to this show. One thing changed my mind though.
Thomas Dekker. He plays Adam Conant in the Secret Circle and is the love interest for the main character Cassie Blake (played by Britt Robertson).You may recognize him from that Terminator show that was on – the Sara Connor Chronicles. He played Sara’s son.
The premier episode of the first season aired on September 15th (sorry I’m so late). The episode summary says that Cassie’s world is turned upside down when her mother dies in a mysterious accident forcing Cassie to move in with her Grandmother in the small town of Chance Harbor, Washington. (I automatically thought Twilight). When strange things start to happen Cassie’s friends are forced to tell her their secret. (WARNING: Spoilers)
The episode starts out with Cassie in the car and a voice saying that destiny isn’t easy to run from. A car passes her honking on the empty highway and then her tire blows sending her into a spin. She comes to a stop, gets out and checks her tire and sees that there isn’t anyone around to help her except that car that just passed her. She waves – starts to ask for help – and the car drives away.
Personally – I wouldn’t ask for someone’s help who just pissed me off. It breaks to her mother in their kitchen fixing dinner. She calls to tell her about the flat and the same car that passed her on the road pulls up in front of the house. A guy gets out and starts making things happen – water pipes burst, fire erupts from the stove top. The house blows up.
She meets her Grandmother (apparently for the first time) and she is staying in her mother’s old room that hasn’t changed in 16 years. After her shower she sees a guy across the street staring at her from his room (she has a robe on). She closes the curtains but then they open again. The next day at school she meets Adam and the rest of the circle. One of the girls I already can’t stand – Faye. She’s very arrogant – I hate that.
Diana – the leader (sort of) of the circle is put to be like a goody-goody – I am sure she isn’t though. Cassie gets invited to the boat house (a restaurant) after school. Turns out Adam’s dad owns it and was in love with Cassie’s mom. He starts saying that their families are destined to be together – that it’s written in the stars.
That’s as much as I am going to give you. I’ll spare you all the juicy details – you should watch it anyway, it’s a great show. I thought it was going to be more like Charmed revisited. I was totally wrong. Cassie finds out that she’s a witch and they try to convince her but it’s no use. The only one who gets through to her is Adam – and he gets really close to her in the first episode.
This seems like it’s going to be a great show and I don’t see it getting canceled. If it does – I’d be upset. That means I’d have to read the books – and like I have time to read anymore!
