We'll have to wait and see what The CW says, let's hope for a miracle!

eOnline has this to say about Cassie's sibling being revealed:

Thomas: The Secret Circle is getting so good! Any teases? 
Remember that time we learned John Blackwell actually has two children in the circle? Yeah, that secret's about to come out! Cassie will learn who her step-sibling/witch is in the next episode…and so will we! The rest of the coven won't find out…for now. So yes, you should feel special.

THE CIRCLE DOES MAGIC TO FIND THE REMAINING CRYSTALS — When a crystal is magically stolen from the abandoned house, the Circle decides it was the traitor witch working with Eben so Jake calls for a meeting with Isaac to see if they can get him to change sides.  Cassie’s loose grasp on her dark magic threatens to destroy any possible alliance when their pursuit of the traitor leads them to the “Creepiest Place on Earth.”  Meanwhile, Faye and Jake work together to steal Dawn’s crystal, Melissa and Adam pair up and uncover a new magic trick.  Meanwhile, a frustrated Diana reaches out to Charles or help.  Eagle Egilsson directed the episode written by Roger Grant & Katie Wech (#120).
Come mid-May (if not sometimes sooner), the networks will be making some tough calls as to which series will return for the 2012-13 TV season, and which … won’t. As we did last spring, TVLine is singling out select “bubble” shows to survey their prospects.

THE CASE FOR KEEPING | With so many plots still to be resolved and mysteries to be delved into, a well-crafted season finale unleashing the right twists and a great cliffhanger could push the show into the Must See category alongside The Vampire Diaries. The ingredients are all there – an appealing cast (more Diana, please!), dark threats, intriguing power struggles – but it just needs that extra “something” to kick the show into full gear. Also, considering the timeslot competition (Grey’s, the red-hot Person of Interest, whatever’s airing after American Idol) and the challenges that come with a first year show finding its storytelling groove, it’s possible Secret Circle just hasn’t yet gotten a fair shot to show us everything it has up its sleeve.

THE CASE FOR CUTTING | The witchy drama is a solid companion to The CW’s vampy crown jewel, yes — but is that enough? There’s no sugarcoating it: Despite the build-up to its launch – It’s from Kevin Williamson! It’s also based on a L.J. Smith book series! It’s got magic! – TSC hasn’t been able to generate the same level of dynamic storytelling, ratings and buzz as its lead-in. And with so little real estate available – The CW only programs 10 hours a week – perhaps its time to give another series the plum perch behind the netlet’s most watched program?

At the end of the most recent episode of "The Secret Circle" (Thursdays, 9 p.m. ET on The CW), John Blackwell issued an ominous warning to his would-be murderer, Ethan: Their children's star-crossed destiny was a curse as much as a love connection. But the omen didn't come soon enough for Cassie (Britt Robertson) and Adam (Thomas Dekker), as the episode closed with the pair consummating their relationship as a portentous cloud of ravens circled above Cassie's house.

What does that mean for the show's central couple? According to Robertson and Dekker, nothing good. HuffPost TV caught up with the pair during a recent visit to the Vancouver-based set, and while they were enthusiastic about their characters' upcoming storylines, it doesn't sound like Cassie and Adam will be living "happily ever after" any time soon ...

"They’ve heard since Cassie got into town that their families were destined to be together, but it was always kind of a bizarre thing; it's like an arranged marriage," Robertson said with a laugh. "They're trying to subtract that element of the relationship and really just focus on each other and how they feel about one another, and not have to focus on the pressures of defining the stars and what they mean. But unfortunately, that [destiny] will always come back to haunt them ... John Blackwell comes around and starts saying that maybe we aren't destined to be together, or if we are, what does that mean for the rest of the circle? It could mean bad things!"

Dekker previously told HuffPost TV that he enjoyed getting to the meat of Cassie and Adam's relationship, but he also revealed that these new obstacles might make the couple think twice about their undeniable chemistry. "The 'written in the stars' part is a positive thing, but there's a repercussion to it that we've never known about that Blackwell informs us of," he said. "So we have to reevaluate how 'worth it' our relationship is in the face of trouble, which was a really interesting direction I never thought they'd go in ...It's also interesting because it brings into consideration the memory of Diana and the past, and you'll see where that goes. That storyline has been pushed away, but on purpose, so that [it has more impact] when it comes back into question."

As we saw last week, the show is already positioning Cassie and Blackwell against Adam and Ethan, and Dekker confirmed that the rivalry between their fathers is going to be the main source of friction between the pair. "When Cassie, with her father, starts to unearth more truths, that's kind of the challenge that it puts on our relationship of 'Who do we trust?'" he explained. "It sort of becomes a bit of a competition of which parent is really the villain or the hero ... but I will not reveal which one Ethan is."

And while it seems obvious that the Blackwells have the most villainous tendencies, thanks to their use of dark magic, Dekker cautions that the delineation isn't as obvious as one might think. "There's certainly a darker edge to [Adam] that's set off at the end of 'Curse,'" he teased. "There's a big shift in him, but it's not a possession; the event that he goes through really brings out a different side of him. He's a bit more aggressive and a bit more drawn to dark things and a bit more sly ... All the things that have been the antithesis of who he's been since the beginning."

"Curse" also sees the return of Cassie's grandmother, Jane (Ashley Crow) who has been away at "a clinic of sorts, working on her mind," according to Robertson. Though she is still struggling to shake off the effects of the memory spell Charles (Gale Harold) cast on her, Robertson said Jane still has some wisdom to impart to her granddaughter this week. "We go to visit her, and she reveals some very interesting information -- she's kind of a conduit to bigger issues, bigger ideas and plans for the circle that are out there, and she's completely unaware of it."

She's not the only one, as Robertson also hinted that we'll be seeing more of the elders appearing in upcoming episodes, including Jake's (Chris Zylka) grandfather and Melissa's (Jessica Parker Kennedy) grandmother. "The elders are coming out of the woodwork left and right, and we have information that we need to get out of them," Parker Kennedy noted. "Some of them are on our side and some of them aren't, and that could end up being an issue as well. But for now, we're trying to keep on the track of keeping the circle alive and whoever's in our way, we'll take them down with us!"

Check out these 2 new promos (1 featuring Cassie/Adam) for 1x17 - Cursed airing tomorrow night:

Hey, "Secret Circle" fans -- remember how just a few weeks ago, Cassie was trying to kill Adam with her brain?

Well, he got over it. As we saw in last week's episode, Cassie and Adam finally did the deed... which happened to activate an old family curse. It also murdered a whole bunch of birds.

It's got to be pretty awkward to find out that a bunch of old witches really didn't want you to have sex with the cute waiter boy... and it's even more awkward when you're forced to tell all of your friends about it. Exes, former crushes, and all.

In this clip from Thursday's new episode, Faye delights in the uncomfortable moment -- while Diana looks a little queasy. Meanwhile, the curse's actual target -- Jake -- is missing in action.

We'll also see Cassie forced to have the sex talk with her recently-resurrected father, which is just the beginning of the breakdown of the walls between the kids and the parents. Executive producer Andrew Miller says that a lot of secrets harbored by the generations of witches are going to come to light very soon.

"It just doesn't feel real for them to be able to keep this secret for much longer," he tells us. "Even if Blackwell is the guy he claims to be, he still comes with a ton of really dark magic. The wall that's been maintained between the kids and the adults can't really last for much longer."

Before the end of the season, all the kids will be confronted with the truth about their parents' misdeeds. "This [season] was intended to be an emotional journey for Cassie, beginning from not being a witch and having a mom who just died, but we also want to do that with the rest of the kids," Miller says. "What we wanted was to take these witches and ask them to define themselves, based on who they are and who their parents are, and by the end of the season we feel like they need to understand where they came from to know who they want to be in the future."

Andrew Miller explains why it's taken 16 episodes for Cassie and Adam to get together, and what the effects might be.
