This was the Mid-Season Finale Until Jan. 5, 2012!!
So were you shocked? I was. Cassie isn't the only Balcoin child in the circle? Who do you think it is? My first thought was Jake. But Jake is too obvious... My next choice was Faye.. but I think this one is way too obvious. It was highlighted that it could be Faye by Jane saying that Dawn was fascinated with John Blackwell... But I think they went to to much effort to shine a light on this. My next thought was Diana or Melissa.
So tell me what you think? Who's the other child of JB? Will Jake come back? Will Adam and Cassie send mores sparks flying now that Jake is gone and Adam is a free agent?
Check in next week and we'll discuss it some more and I'll post some of the better screen caps from the first part of the season!
