'Secret Circle' canceled just as Charles was about to go 'dark, cool, dangerous as hell' and possibly have sex
The Secret Circle EP Andrew Miller didn’t know his show was being canceled this morning when he phoned EW to talk about last night’s season finale and tease where a second season would take the witches of Chance Harbor if they were granted one. Below, you can read where the characters were headed. I’m most sad for the loss of the opportunity to see Gale Harold (Charles) go as dark as I’d hoped he be after seeing the pilot. In the finale, Charles redeemed himself by magically luring the six demons inside Eben into his body so that Dawn could save Faye, Melissa, and Jake from burning at the stake (okay, a pole on the old ship). “So now he’s in this comatose state with six demons inside him that can’t get out, in the hopes that soon — let’s say next season — there’s a way to extract those demons,” Miller said. “Who Charles is when that happens remains to be seen. That’s what we wanted to set up for next season: Can the people who love him help him in a way that brings him back to who he was, or is he gonna be someone completely different? He’s come a long way this year, starting off as a completely evil son of a bitch [when he killed Cassie's mother] and ending up making a self-sacrifice that was pretty stunning. If there is a next season, I suspect that idea of self-sacrifice won’t be uppermost on his mind anymore. He might revert back a little.” READ FULL STORY »
The Secret Circle seems to have embraced an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink philosophy to storytelling. Over the show’s 21 episodes, there have been several demon possessions, at least two resurrections (one of which was thanks to a demon possession!), one super-hot hex sex scene, a memory erasure, and a reveal that two of the show’s main characters are half-sisters… and now there’s a crystal skull? As Steven Spielberg and Geoge Lucas learned a while back, no good can come from a crystal skull.
Taking a more-is-more approach is not uncommon these days in TV storytelling — not only for freshman series (hello, Smash! hey there, Ringer), but also for Circle‘s CW sister shows (I’m lookin’ at you, Gossip Girl). The question remains, though: After screen cuts to black at the end of tonight’s finale, what will be left? How can the Circle possibly keep up this momentum in season 2? READ FULL STORY »
Have you ever been watching the end of a Vampire Diaries and wondered why you were weeping? Or been humming a random Springsteen song all week before you remember it was featured in Glee? Well, friend, you are not alone. We here at EW have been keeping our eyes and ears open in search of the best music appearing on the small screen this fall season. From that tireless search was born the TV Jukebox. Since the premieres began rolling in, we’ve found songs from perennial earworm provider Grey’s Anatomy, some danceable goodness from Glee and How I Met Your Mother, a surprise entry from still wet-behind-the-ears sitcom Free Agents, and more. Check out our picks below! READ FULL STORY »
The CW debuted its new supernatural Thursday last night, with the series debut of The Secret Circle following the season 3 premiere of The Vampire Diaries. The pairing makes perfect sense: Both shows, adapted from L.J. Smith novels, have teen heroines, and both come from Kevin Williamson, who loves twists and epic love stories equally. By scheduling them on the same night, the CW hopes those TVD fans who love a mythology-driven drama that moves will stick around for TSC. It worked in week 1: The Secret Circle retained nearly all of its Vampire Diaries lead-in. But what about next week? Are you in or are you out? READ FULL STORY »
