Episode Guide

'Family' is the twenty-second episode of the first season of The Secret Circle, making it the first season finale, and is also the series finale due its cancellation by the CW. It aired on May 10, 2012.


After Faye is attacked by the Witch Hunters, Jake, Melissa and Adam set out to save her. Blackwell tells Cassie and Diana that the only way to stop the Witch Hunters is to use their Balcoin blood to unleash the Crystal Skull. Diana is reluctant, but Cassie convinces her that it’s the only way to help their friend. However, she’ll need to tap into her dark magic to do it. Also, a mysterious magical power or so is what gives the circle its solo magic back. Meanwhile, Dawn and Charles are faced with a new way to get their power back, but at a very big cost.
