She says no and asks for Dawn's help protecting them.At the abandoned house, Adam says no way is he letting Jake be a part of the circle.

"It's the most coveted magic there is, but it can bring out the very worst in people," she says.Jake knocks on a door, the woman who attacked Cassie answers. Simone says hi. She expected him to find her. He shoves her against a wall and demands to know why she followed him there. She's a true believer who hates witches.
