Plus, Britt Robertson explains that even though Cassie ‘needs’ Jake now, Adam is still very much ‘a possibility.’

As Cassie (Britt Robertson) continues to embrace her Balcoin heritage, her dark powers will start to take their toll on the people in her life — beginning with Faye (Phoebe Tonkin)! “This week, you’ll really get to see them go toe-to-toe,” Britt tells HollywoodLife.com about The Secret Circle‘s Jan. 12 episode. “Cassie’s not digging Faye. … The level of the aggression she ends up going at Faye with is probably her darker self within.”

While Britt acknowledges that Cassie and Faye have never really seen eye to eye, the latest development with Cassie’s powers will complicate their “frenemy” status even further.

“Cassie’s now getting what Faye always wanted: her own individual power that she doesn’t have to bother anyone with,” Cassie explains. “She can do her own thing, and Faye’s jealous. She doesn’t understand why Cassie gets it, so she wants to find a way to get it all for herself. The two of them will get to explore their own individual powers in different ways.”

And what about the other people in Cassie’s life — specifically Jake (Chris Zylka) and Adam (Thomas Dekker), the brooding gents vying for her heart?

“Jake represents the dark side of Cassie,” Britt explains. “He has all the information on witch hunters and all that dark stuff no one else seems to know about. That’s why she needs him. That’s why she wants him. He represents something no one understands.”

On the flip side…

“Adam represents the good side of her, and there’s the cosmic connection they felt from the moment they met each other,” she says. “It’s that tug of who she’ll end up choosing versus who she is. With the Adam side of it, Diana [Shelley Hennig] is also her best friend. So to betray Diana would be devastating to their friendship. Of course, now that they’re broken up, it’s definitely a possibility.”

As for that pesky “other Balcoin” out there, Cassie is sorry to report… that there’s nothing to report.

“I don’t even know if the writers know,” she admits. “But hopefully it’ll come out soon; I need to know ASAP. We all have our own individual theories, but I’m sure it’ll be someone no one expects, because that’s what [the writers] always do.”

OK, lay your thoughts on me: Are you hoping to see Cassie go darker-than-ever? Which guy should Cassie choose? And who could the ‘other Balcoin’ be?! Hit the comments section, friends!
