A cute jock named Luke asks Cassie to the school dance, and after watching Adam spend time with Diana at the boathouse, she accepts his offer. Meanwhile, Melissa sees the dance as an opportunity to get closer to Nick. Faye, on the other hand, has no plans to go and remains focused on finding a way to control her powers. Dawn discovers someone from their past, an intense man named Zachary, is in town asking questions about the Cassie and the Circle, so she asks Charles to keep an eye on him.

The episode begins at school; Faye is upset that she can't use her magic. Diana reminds her she just has to have another member of the circle present. She tells her to be thankful things are under control and hope Sally doesn't remember she almost killed her. Meanwhile, Diana asks Cassie if she wants to hang out later, but Cassie doesn't think they should be friends. She doesn't like lying to Sally about what happened. Meanwhile, Melissa and Nick finish up some midday bonking. She asks him if he wants to go to the dance, she doesn't care if Faye knows. He tells her they're just about sex and if she wants more, it's over. In school, Cassie asks Sally what happened to her arm. Sally says it's a blur, but she keeps getting flashes of Faye, like she did it. ..
