When a crystal is magically stolen from the abandoned house, the Circle decides it was the traitor witch working with Eben. Jake calls for a meeting with Isaac to see if they can get him to change sides, but Cassie’s loose grasp on her dark magic threatens to destroy any possible alliance when their pursuit of the traitor leads them to the “Creepiest Place on Earth”. Meanwhile, Faye and Jake work together to steal Dawn’s crystal, Melissa and Adam pair up and uncover a new magic trick, and a frustrated Diana reaches out to Charles for help.



Main Cast

Recurring Cast



Jake: "Is it true, witch hunters did it?"
Faye: "That's what Blackwell said."
Jake: "We can't just sit here and let them get away with this!"
Faye: "And we will. But right now there are sad, fragile, old people here. Let's not give them some heart attacks with angry threats."

Faye: "I’ve noticed mom keeps a bottle of pills in her purse. I think they're the reason behind her random bursts of happiness."

Melissa: "You're a master elder with a badass cloaking spell and you use it to hide your girly mags?"

Faye: "We totally got out magicked in our own magic house. Unbelievable."

Adam: "There's a curse on us. If we started developing again, someone from the circle could die."

Faye: "If we live, remind me to download this song. It'd be perfect for my 'Running For Your Life' treadmill mix."

Faye: "If I run into any kind of clown, I am so out of here."

Faye: "Oh and I forgot, we have the dark magic super twins on our side."

Diana: "Is it smart to do what John Blackwell says?"

Cassie: "I'm sure she has her reasons."
Faye: "Oh like what buying more pushup bras brushing up on her Aussie accent."
— about Diana.

John: "Are you okay?"
Cassie: "Not really. My grandmother is dead and it turns out my father slept with half of Chance Harbor!"

Cassie: "Diana, you've always treated me like family and I know things are really confusing right now, but if it turns out that you are my sister, I'd be really happy about that."

Diana: "You stopped it from killing him."
Cassie: "I hope that wasn't a mistake."
— about the mysterious traitor, before discovering it was Nick.

Notes and Trivia

  • Originally, the title was thought to be Trader.
  • "Creepiest Place on Earth" refers to an old carnival ground based on a tweet by Phoebe Tonkin.
  • Faye comment on Diana brushing up on her Aussie Accent is ironic since Phoebe Tonkin is Australian herself.
  • Louis Hunter returned as Nick Armstrong. He was uncredited in this episode as his appearance was kept a secret until the very end of the episode.
  • The traitor is revealed to be Nick who is apparently still possessed by the demon, Abaddon.
  • Live tweeting, Andrew Miller announced that it was Diana's mother, Elizabeth, who came from one of the families from Salem.
  • The opening scene where Cassie has discovered her grandmother's death is similar to the 'cold opening' scene of the Buffy The Vampite Slayer's fifth season episode "The Body" where Buffy is shown in a grim opening montage upon just discovering her mother's corpse
