The Secret Circle only began airing in the past month, but during a visit to the set of the witchcraft-powered CW series this week, Thomas Dekker ("Adam") said he felt this this week's new episode, "Heather," was a pivotal one.

As Dekker explained, "Not only is it when I think the show really finds its footing and what it is, it also is the episode where we tip off into the dark side. I keep saying the show gets darker and darker and heavier and more frightening, and this is the episode where that really begins. And the ones that follow... Yeah, it's a dark show! We were joking today that we're probably going to be in trouble with quite a lot of parents."

Similarly, Dekker noted that when it comes to Adam, "He's more layered than necessarily we've shown in the first few episodes." Dekker said he felt Adam is very good at telling when someone is lying, remarking, "I think he really can suss out and maybe knows a bit more at time than he alludes to – which could be used negatively."

At the center of The Secret Circle is Cassie (Britt Robertson), the newest – but potentially most powerful – member of this coven of young witches. Going forward, Robertson said, "Cassie has now accepted the fact that she's a witch and accepted that she has these powers that are unfolding. I think she's really taken charge a little bit and it's growing – her power is constantly growing and evolving and she, with the Circle, is becoming more powerful. "

Robertson revealed that as the episode unfolds, "You will get to see Faye and Cassie's relationship… The whole episode they spend together and they're stuck in this house together and they basically have to save each other from various situations and you get to see their relationship in a completely different light."

Robertson also noted, "This is the first episode where I think you get to see Cassie wanting to learn more about magic and wanting to really discover what happened with her mom with the rest of the adults sixteen years ago, when her mom fled, and why her mom fled. There's a lot of mystery that she doesn't understand and I think that this episode, you understand more about what's happening and you get to see who Cassie really is and why she is the way she is and what's inside of her. But because of that, it's very scary. You get to see the deep, dark side of witchcraft, because that does exist."

That being the case, could Cassie herself turn to the dark side, as it were? Said Robertson, "Not necessarily the dark side, but at this point I think they're playing with the idea that these six kids aren't just all good. That's not all there is to it. There are other sides to magic which is why, ultimately, her mom left. She fled from the town because of darker reasons or things that weren't exactly a healthy environment for her to be bringing me up in. So I think you'll get to see more of that world – the darker world. "

When I asked Robertson whether Cassie might begin to assert herself more and take on more of a leadership role, she replied, "Yes, definitely. It happens in this episode coming up. It will continue to happen in further episodes, because Diana has always kind of been the leader for them, but I think Cassie now has a better understanding, along with the rest of the group, of who they are and what they can control and what they can take on."
