MTV: 'The Secret Circle' Recap: 'Return'

Last night's episode of "The Secret Circle" featured a huge payoff front and center: the "Return" of John Blackwell. After the steamy raciness of last week's "Valentine," the show returned to its slow-boil pace and gave us long moments to contemplate Blackwell's true intentions, to wonder even more about the fire and the other big events from 16 years ago, to consider for a moment why Cassie's father clearly favors Jake over Adam and other such plot threads. Of course, witch hunters just love to interrupt our pondering! CLICK HERE to read the rest of my report.
