When only four percent of scripted TV shows feature LGBT characters, what’s a gay girl to do? Why, strap on your gay goggles and watch TV along with us, of course! Our handy appraisal scale is better than any old letter grade. Other sites A+. We say, “What about our lezzy-lady feelings?”
This week was mid-season finale time on The Secret Circle and we got one hex of a cliffhanger. And with it, a new dimension to the power of The Circle. Too bad we won’t get to know exactly what it all means until after the holidays. Merry Witchmas, everybody.
This episode covered a lot of ground, story-wise, with little time for girl/girl subtext. All we got was a few brief moments of budding intimacy between Diana and Cassie. Diana did say that since she’s been single, she’s felt empowered. So, OK — a tiny bit of lesbian subtext.
You know, for a group of folks calling themselves True Believers, those dudes don’t really seem to be filled with the love of Jesus. But once Jake tells Issac that Cassie is part of the Balcoin lineage that originated dark magic, he backs off big-time. Yes, I’m as confused as you are. Everybody knows dark magic originated with Voldemort.
MOMENTS OF FAYE
Faye’s not herself — finding your grandpa’s cold, dead body tends to do that to a girl. She goes to Mama Dawn for a little TLC and Dawn has the perfect solution: Go to a party! Good move, Mom.
Another member of The Secret Circle with dark magic? Who could it be? All signs point to Faye, since we know her mom had a thing for John Blackwell. Part of me hopes that’s true, because we’d have so much fun watching Faye as she realizes she can do solo magic. But the other part of me hopes it’s someone else so we can watch Faye being jealous and snarky about Cassie’s power. Besides, their being sisters would totally ruin Chamberlake. If binding the circle indeed binds the entire families of its members, then we may not have even met the other dark witch yet. Really, it could be anyone.
What did you think of this episode? Do you think Faye and Cassie are half-sisters? Any predictions for the rest of the season?
