When The Secret Circle introduced the strong possibility of a second Blackwell child at the end of Season 1, Episode 9, “Balcoin,” all suspicions were directed towards Faye Chamberlain (Phoebe Tonkin).

It would make perfect sense, right? After all, Faye’s mother, Dawn Chamberlain (Natasha Henstridge) had an obsession with Cassie’s father, John Blackwell. How great would it be if the two people in the Circle who can stand each other the least were really half-sisters?

But after talking to Gale Harold (Charles Meade) and Chris Zylka (Jake Armstrong) we’re no longer so sure we’ve got it figured out.

“I don’t know about that,” said Gale at the Golden Globes “Night of Firsts” bash in Los Angeles last weekend. “I think that’s one of the those things where it will be clear-cut when it’s revealed.  I have a lot of fun trying to figure it out.”

Chris tells Wetpaint Entertainment that the cast doesn’t know yet, but it seems they’ve been thrown off course when it comes to the clues that offered Faye on a plate in the mid-season finale.  

“That would be everyone’s guess,” he told us at the Ripple Effect event in Los Angeles last weekend, trailing off as if it’s a red herring and not a certainty. But rest assured, the mystery of the lost sibling will feature prominently when the show returns in January.

“It’s a constant that they will remind you and torture you with,” says Chris. “We [as a cast] don’t even know yet, but I think everyone wants to be the sibling because of what a bad ass Cassie is.”

And much to our relief — since they’re supposed to be written in the stars and all — one character can be eliminated from our list of suspects. “Thomas [Dekker] (Adam Conant) is the one that’s in the clear,” reveals Chris. “That would have made it kind of awkward.”
