MTV: 'The Secret Circle' Recap: 'Sacrifice'

Some families have a skeleton or two in the closet. Cassie Blake's father has one buried in an old playground; literally.

Here are some of the things we learned during "Curse," this week's episode of "The Secret Circle": John Blackwell tried to summon some demons 16 years ago, some demons who wanted to possess the bodies of the old circle of parents (he says his plan was to use the demons to protect them from the witch hunters, but then the demons wanted to do the whole body-snatching thing instead); Eben is an even nastier villain than we'd have imagined; Blackwell has a skeleton stashed away. Whose skeleton is it? We don't know and we'll have to wait until at least next week to find out.
