Episode Guide

Beneath is the eighth episode in the first season of The Secret Circle. It aired on November 3, 2011.


After not hearing from her grandmother for a couple of days, Cassie becomes concerned and wants to go look for her. Diana decides the entire Circle should go in case Jane is in trouble. She also invites Jake along, much to Adam’s dismay. A storm turns the day trip into an overnight excursion, so Faye suggests a little game of Truth or Dare to liven up the evening. However, things take a horrible turn when Faye is forced to reckon with someone from her past.

Notes and Trivia

  • This is the first episode not to feature Melissa. The reason why Jessica Parker Kennedy was not in this episode is unknown.
  • The reference to Melissa's mother in the episode is actually somewhat of a misnomer. After her biological mother died in the accident sixteen years ago, her father re-married. She is the only circle member to have a step-parent.
  • This episode marks the first and only times Cassie and Jake kissed. First by a dare and then by their own free will.
  • It's the third time Phoebe Tonkin had surprises for her in a bathtub scene. One in this episode, two while she was on H2O, Just Add Water.
  • In this episode, we see Dawn and Charles enter the Circle's Abandoned House for the first time.
