Sometimes we forget that there are two Circles in Chance Harbor: The youngins and the middle-agers! Charles (Gale Harold) and Dawn (Natasha Henstridge) have an even more dramatic power-struggle than their offspring, and now that John Blackwell is coming back to town, things are about to get way more complicated!

Let’s not forget that Charles is still battling with his guilt over Nick’s (Louis Hunter) death. "He's gone through the guilt, he's gone through the panic,” Gale tells The Hollywood Reporter . “He's got to take a step back and start being more manipulative himself, unless he loses his mind. Then who knows what's going to happen. I think that could be very exciting because he would be a loose cannon and there would be revenge."

John Blackwell’s return to Chance Harbor might just be a game-changer for Charles, especially if John teams with with Dawn. "If he makes an allegiance with Dawn, then that puts my character in a whole other place,” Gale says. “He becomes a direct conflict because there's no way that Charles is going to stand by."

Meanwhile, Charles’ daughter, Diana (Shelley Hennig), is dealing with her own magical Circle. Will the generations ever unite? "At some point, Diana's going to have to find out something,” Gale teases. “Whether she finds it out through someone else or if she walks in on Charles doing something that spills the beans, to me that would be interesting."

So many circles, so little time!
