CASSIE RIGHTS A WRONG FROM HER MOTHER’S PAST
Cassie looks up an old friend of her mother’s named Heather Barnes and discovers she has been in a catatonic state since the night of the fire sixteen years ago. Feeling guilty that her mother and her Circle may have had something to do with Heather’s current state, Cassie tells Diana that she wants to use magic to help Heather. Diana refuses to help, but Faye is more than happy to conjure up a spell – for a price.
Cassie discovers that one of her mother's old friends, Heather Barnes, still lives in Chance Harbor, and so she tries to find her in order to get more information on the fire. Heather's brother Wade Barnes leads Cassie and Adam to where Heather sits, motionless for 16 years. Cassie sees that Heather might be under the influence of a binding spell, and she wants to lift the spell to speak with Heather. Diana says that it might be too dangerous. Faye says that she'll help Cassie, but only if Cassie allows her to read her mother's grimoire. Cassie is reluctant, but she agrees.
Nothing seems to happen at first, and Cassie is disappointed. Diana finds out from her mother's grimoire that the spell on Heather was meant to keep evil at bay. Meanwhile, Heather snaps out of the binding spell and wanders over to Cassie's house. Heather is looking for Cassie's mother, saying that "she wanted to protect you". Heather housed a demon, and now Cassie and Faye's spell has set it free.
- Faye: "Your mother must have been one mean-ass witch!"
- Faye: "Hey Cassie! Dreamboat's on the phone, desperate for you"
- Nick: "Some things should be done without magic."
- Faye: "What’s the point of being a damn witch if I can’t do any magic by myself. I might as well become a cheerleader."
- Melissa: "Faye was saying some things and I made the mistake of listening."
- Faye: "Don't be that pathetic girl who thinks 'He will change for me'. They never change."
- Melissa: "Ok, I got it, he's a loser, I'm a loser, feel better?"
- Cassie: "You're going to help me?"
- Faye: "Sure, if you let me read your book. You need my help and to be honest, I never understood why we are not better friends."
- Faye: "Why can’t it be fun, like that movie The Craft. I mean the first half. Not the stuff with the snakes. The part where we put spells on boys, change our hair color, and levitate."
