Cassie Blake's world is turned upside down after her mother dies in a mysterious accident, forcing Cassie to move in with her loving grandmother Jane in the small town of Chance Harbor, Washington.

I Sensed A Great Start When I Began this Show
22 January 2014 | by (Washington, USA) – See all my reviews

I promise not to ruin the show for you new viewers as far as the show as a whole, so I am reviewing the episodes one at a time as I re-watch them so that you can get a feel of the reviews as the season progresses.

This episode was actually a really great pilot, and not many pilots can always say that. Sometimes they are missing vital information, start at a horrid time mark, or move to slow with endless back-story. This episode, thankfully, did not.

The rhythm of this episode was wonderful, it wasn't too fast or too slow and it held my attention the whole episode, as well as left me wondering what was next.

That being said, there were some things that I didn't like with this episode. I didn't like relationship building between Cassie and Adam, seeing as how he preaches love and then instantly finds that he wants Cassie. I believe in soul-mates too, but I don't believe in faking love.

I also wasn't a fan that Cassie doesn't like or want magic, that was a downer.
