secret_circle: Secret Circle post-hiatus scoop would be great?
You know what else would be great? If we could go back in time and push Jake (Chris Zylka) off the boat to reunite him with Cassie (Britt Robertson), or so he could tell the gang there’s another Blackwell child in the coven. Sadly, we still haven’t finished our time machine. “Jake knows the existence of such a child, but the emergence of the second Blackwell offspring will be revealed in due course,” executive producer Andrew Miller ominously says. And for Jake fans worrying we won’t see his pretty face anytime soon, fear not! We’re hearing there’s still plenty of Jake action to come. Guest star, shmest star!

Sarah: Tell us about Grey Damon’s character on Secret Circle! I loved him on Nine Lives!
Well, we loved him when he was on Friday Night Lights, so we win! “His character is a very dangerous guy for a lot of reasons,” Miller teases. “He’s confident and cocky and has a different kind of power than we’ve seen, but one of our characters will be drawn to him in a way that could prove dire for other characters.” Spoiler alert: it’s Faye (Phoebe Tonkin). Darn that Grey Damon and his sinister attraction!
