I’m not starting to love Jake, but I may be warming up to Faye/Jake.
The improvement in his character/their relationship has flashes of some of the things I loved about Nelissa’s development. (Except I loved both Nick and Melissa from the start.)
For all my dislike of Jake and typical dislike of Faye, they were kind of cute in their creepy carnival scenes tonight.
Unpopular Opinion: I don’t care for Faye-Melissa. Or, frankly, Cassie-Diana.
Wouldn’t it be funny if it were Diana or Faye and it turns out they were magically concieved. Basically, they have two biological dads (Blackwell and either Charles or Thomas) and they never had biological mothers to begin with?
Now THAT would certainly be a twist!
But realistically, I still hold firm that Diana and Faye make no sense as half-sisters unless the show pulls something really contrived out of their asses. (Yeah, watch Blackwell turn out to be a secret Meade just so Diana can be Cassie’s half-sister. Gag me!)
snowemma: You make some valid points but do you really think the writers would think of such an elaborate situation and what would be the point? They already had a Melissa/John scene to give people hope that she could be the other Blackwell. Seems weird to bring Melissa in a storyline about Faye/Eva/Lee. IDK. I really enjoy reading your theories btw!
I really do. For one, it makes a very good red herring, people a lot of people have jumped on the Faye-is-the-other-Blackwell bandwagon and Eva using solo magic adds fuel to that fire. Secondly, I think there’s more to that Devil’s Spirit than we think. Yeah, it’s a drug with deadly side effects, but it was also introduced by a shady character who has his roots in voodoo. I think there’s potential there. And why have Eva be in a Devil’s Spirit induced coma? It just seems very odd to me. Lee is tied to Callum and Callum is tied to Melissa, so I don’t think she’s as removed from that storyline as she may seem.
It’s all just speculative or course, but I just think that a lot more is going on than meet’s the eye. Or at least I hope. I want to believe that there are still crafty, devious writers out there who know how to pull some serious twists in their writing. The ones that you don’t ever see coming and then can go back and realize there were breadcrumbs all along leading up to it are the twists and writers I respect the most.
symetricallity: This is just how I assume 'Eva's' power happened, Lee used the totem to channel the power like when Faye used Cassie's necklace, so I think she was channeling the power from the entire circle, which could explain why Diana and Melissa were feeling tired (I think it affected them first when Faye did it too), I could be wrong but its a possibility
That’s a possibility.
I’d thought that them feeling tired was a result of John’s faux curse. (That or they were just being hypochondriacs. :P)
snowemma: There is no source other than the show. The show said it was Faye's magic and something happened with the totems. My theory is that some of Faye's magic went into Eva. Before binding the circle, Faye was able to do a ton of things. Eva wasn't apart of that ritual and so when some of Faye's magic got transferred to her, she was able to do individual magic.
No it didn’t. Faye speculated that it was her magic. That was her personal conclusion, based on the things she has seen and knows about. But that doesn’t make her an infallible source on the subject. The show also said that there was a curse on Cassie and Adam’s love, something which the whole Circle now believes and so did the viewing audience, until it was revealed that we didn’t know all the facts on the subject. Likewise, we don’t know all the facts about how the totems work (or how the broken totem might have jumbled things up). Nor the effects of Devil’s Spirit or its origins.
I’m not saying that it’s not a valid theory, I’m just saying it doesn’t make sense me and I don’t agree with Faye’s assessment of the situation. I can see why she would come to the conclusion she did, but unlike the viewing audience, she has no idea that there’s another Blackwell in the Circle, and if she did, that could very well change her interpretation of the events with Eva.
