The 1965 versions of Morocco Mole and Secret Squirrel.Secret Squirrel is a series of Spy Fiction parody cartoon shorts made by Hanna-Barbera in 1965 as the lead segment of a Three Shorts series that also featured Squiddly Diddly and Winsome Witch.
During any infiltration or stealth operation, the female lead will wear an impossibly tight catsuit. The writers may try to justify it, saying it's a stealth garment with sensor defeating properties—so she's seductively slathered herself in Applied Phlebotinum. The female spy shows up to the mission in normal, practical clothes, and males around her express disappointment.
As you may have imagined, this is not something real-life (or realistic fictional) female operatives would wear in the field, though a black turtleneck and cargo pants arguably pull off a similar look while being a bit more plausible. Erin Esurance, the female agent in the pre-2010 Esurance commercials, frequently sported one.
Some of William Shatner's recent "Priceline Negotiator" ads have a girl named "Naomi Pryce" wearing one. In the first ad of T*Mobile's most recent ad campaign, their mascot-spokeswoman trades in her girl-next-door pink dress for a pink-and-black motorcycle jumpsuit. A series of TV Commercials for Nationwide Insurance feature a leather-catsuited woman (played by actress Jana Kramer) backflipping around a house undoing the damage done, either by a burglary or by a fire.
The special corps in Bleach wear a variation of these, their leader wears a kimono version (though Omake shows both her and Yoruichi in more standard ones).
The same outfits are worn by Ayumu, Eucliwood, and Seraphim during a parody of the series in the Is This a Zombie? Used rather bizarrely in Death Note, where professional thief Weddy wears a classic 60's style catsuit (built in high-heels and all) while infiltrating a building, for no apparent reason. In Ghost in the Shell, Major Kusanagi wears a spy catsuit that really is a stealth device, called thermoptic camouflage.
While the Major's normal combat wear shows more curves than the standard models, it's generally quite practical, and her male squadmates wear active camoflage suits of the same design.
In Lupin III, one of Fujiko Mine's outfits is a black leather spy catsuit which she frequently doesn't zip up all the way. The pilots in Neon Genesis Evangelion wear skin-tight plugsuits, the form only interrupted by attached equipment. As mentioned earlier, catsuits were first introduced by Catwoman, designed by Bob Kane, and which would also influence the U.S. Subverted in The Batman And Robin Adventures #16 (a tie-in comic to the animated series), which introduced Catman as a villain inspired by Catwoman. Justified in that said catsuits are resistant to mundane blades (non-adamantium or energy blades, etc.), fireproof, and insulate the wearer from electrical shocks and extremes of heat and cold. Carol Danvers, who did espionage work when she was depowered, noted that often, going unnoticed is less important than nobody remembering your face after you leave.
In Adam Warren's Empowered comic, the heroine doesn't just wear a shiny skintight suit, it's a shiny skintight suit of power armor that tears like a wet hanky if she brushes against anything that has a point on it.
Similarly to the Empowered example, Artificial Human Girl One from Top 10 wears what at first appears to be a full body catsuit. Also, Scarlett did wear a standard black catsuit with some armored parts in the live-action film. When she lost her powers and operated as "Diana Prince, Wonder Woman", Wonder Woman sometimes wore a white catsuit (though less often than popularly imagined - much of the time, she simply wore "normal" all-white outfits including minidresses, pantsuits, etc). If there was a point to the movie Entrapment beyond showing Catherine Zeta-Jones in one of these as she slinked through a maze of trip beams, it's not clear. Based on a recent promo image, Hathaway's outfit as Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises appears to be little more than this. Cameron Diaz in Charlie's Angels movie adaptation wears an impressive shiny silver catsuit while climbing and jumping off a skyscraper.
In movie adaptation Nick Fury : Agent of SHIELD, starring David Hasselhoff, almost everyone wears a catsuit, including all SHIELD and HYDRA agents. Angie Harmon wears an impressive series of impressive catsuits, including the famous red catsuit, in Agent Cody Banks. In Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, a quartet of jewel thieves posing as animal rights activists wear these to steal diamonds while the eponymous heroes are duped into freeing animals from the lab next door as a diversion. Averted in Quantum of Solace, where in the Final Battle, Camille is wearing a button-down, plain khakis, and sneakers, and has her hair in a ponytail.
Worn by the team during the raid on the compound and in the V-Formation Team Shot behind the closing credits in Angels Revenge. Kitten wears one of these in one of her many fantasy sequences in the film Breakfast on Pluto. We also have a straight example in Mara Jade Skywalker - made even more obvious in the Japanese covers for the New Jedi Order novels as well as that of Sacrifice. The Executioner: A male example is Mack Bolan's blacksuit, worn not only to hide him in the dark but also for its psychological effect.
Pookie, a Pervect bodyguard from Myth Adventures, wears one of these as her work clothes, along with a short cape. In Vorpal Blade, Two Gun uses this to describe the skintight suits that Wyvern operators have to wear when using their suits. Rather persistently averted in Alias, where any given spy is much more likely to be in nightclub wear.
Secret Weapons over Normandy (SWON) is the 2003 sequel to Secret Weapons Of The Luftwaffe, one of the first and best-known Flight Simulators. TVTropes is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License. It was later revived in 1993 as Super Secret Secret Squirrel, in another Three Shorts format headlined by 2 Stupid Dogs.In both versions, Secret Squirrel is a Funny Animal spy. I'm not the first guy who fell in love with a woman that he met at a restaurant who turned out to be the daughter of a kidnapped scientist, only to lose her to her childhood lover who she last saw on a deserted island, who then turned out fifteen years later to be the leader of the French underground. It could be for freedom of movement (a Critical Research Failure if the outfit is leather).
In fact, this trope originated with Catwoman, whose iconic use of this outfit is both the Trope Creator and Trope Namer. Justified in that she's going motorcycle riding (as a metaphor for the company's high-speed wireless network). Spy catsuits complete with Xtreme plunging necklines and built-in high heels, for added stealth obviously. Possibly justified in that the series artist has admitted basing her on stereotypical female spy archetypes, but it still clashes with the feel of the story. It's also worth noting that each outfit is so specifically designed that only the person it was meant for could wear it. In the movie at least, this technology is used fairly extensively, although she has to be nude to use it (or rather, a flesh-colored skinsuit.
The major exception to this is in the Stand Alone Complex the 2nd Gig episode Cash Eye, which plays with the infiltration and espionage tropes, and repeated references to Ocean's Eleven, and has her wear a catsuit that fits this trope to tee with little purpose. One of the most iconic franchise images, Lupin running along the wall with spotlights following him, has the thief with only his face revealed. The suit is actually vacuum sealed to their body and the specifically tailored to suit their personal body shape.
So much that he wears Catwoman's rather feminine-looking catsuit, which looks rather comical on a male figure. They also have radar and infrared absorption capabilities (stealth), depending on the story. Matt Fraction has stated this was a deliberate Shout-Out to Emma Peel, since he writes Kate and Clint with a similar dynamic to that of Steed & Peel.
A female cat burglar wearing very tight and fanservice-y leather catsuit breaks into house, deliberately gets caught by its owner, seduces him with her sexy looks, sleeps with him, and then robs his house with him being unable to call the police, because if he does, his wife will know he cheated on her with the burglar.
She's not actually a spy (she's closer to an assassin), but often has to be stealthy - she is a vampire, after all.
The problem of mobility is pointed out in the DVD extra material by Hugh Jackman as the suits created literal Insurmountable Waist-Height Fence situations. Also parodied, in that the initial introduction to the suit-clad thieves is them explicitly showing themselves off to the camera with overblown, borderline ridiculous body poses to acknowledge how blatant the creators know the Fanservice is.
Peel and her clone (Uma Thurman) followed her predecessors' examples by wearing lots of skintight catsuits. Musidora, the actress who played Irma had been a circus acrobat and the catsuit is probably derived from her leotard and tights. Patience dons a leather catsuit as part of her Makeover Montage but she abandons it pretty soon and opts for something even more Stripperiffic - that does at least look like it offers more mobility. How much this qualifies as Fanservice depends on whether the reader is into bald, rail-thin women with green scales. Frequently a zipper away from becoming Absolute Cleavage and regularly employed as a means to distract male policemen.
Brings up some serious Moral Dissonance, because she's a vegetarian on the basis that she finds killing an animal for food cruel.
They specialize in this type of wear, which allows them to blend into plain sight, and can apparently protect against everything from bullets to wizards. Subverted when they are almost immediately killed by male agents wearing skintight magically enhanced camouflage gear.
Smith, who also created The Vampire Diaries.Cassie Blake thought she was just a normal girl, until her mother is murdered by a witch who makes it look like a gas explosion.
A variant on this is the tendency of female ninja in anime and superhero comics to wear excessively stripperiffic outfits (see for example the female teachers from Naruto).
Despite this, this example is a bit more realistic than the most - the catsuits are neither latex no leather, but lycra, and are similar to jumpsuits real gymnasts wear. The suit leaves a noticeable neckline where her skin color contrasts with the suit's.) It's somewhat less drastic in other iterations, which look more practical. Perhaps the outfit let the android fetishist Corrupt Corporate Executive to mistake her for a combat android. This of course leads to embarrassment when Shinji gets dressed in a suit designed for a girl. The point to 'Empowered' is to get your humiliation fetish in your ironically-titled supers fantasy. The sequel explains her instantaneous Vampire Healing Powers but never mentions the fact that her suit seems to heal itself as well. So often used, during her career as a Racer, that's it gets referred to in-Verse as the Keri Roberts Victory Stretch And Yawn.
She moves in with her grandmother, and soon comes to the attention of five of her new classmates. They oppose the sinister plans of CHUMP, whose members include Baron Von Butcher and his chaffeur Creto, the Dragon Woman and her assistant Wang Fu, Mad Scientist Dr.
There will often be a single zipper on the front, which will result in Absolute Cleavage when it's unzipped.
In reality, it's to make the inevitable climbing, shimmying, flipping and belly-crawling through a Laser Hallway look that much more like a lapdance. Of course, it might also be a deliberate invocation of Distracted by the Sexy and I Have Boobs, You Must Obey! And with Cassie in town, they now have a full "circle" of six members, meaning their powers have increased dramatically.
Airstrike Impossible: The attack on the German heavy water plant, which is basically a playable version of 633 Squadron. If you see someone in one of these, there's little she can say to convince you she's not a spy or a fetishist outside of a Sci-Fi series. Cassie must decide for herself whether to accept what it appears destiny has in store for her.
All There in the Manual: In order to truly grasp and appreciate the significance and history of the aircraft and the missions they flew, the player had to go in with at least some background knowledge in WWII already.
Alternate History: A lot of the missions are truly historical, but a few are purely theoretical, and most are somewhere in between, based on real battles but with the inclusion of experimental aircraft that never saw service. Bumbling Sidekick: Morocco Mole assists Secret Squirrel on his missions, but frequently messes up due to his stupidity.
Once there, he is swept up into a spy plot by Hillary Flammond, whose father is held captive by the Communists. Her attempts to adjust to the new town are crushed when five of her classmates, Adam Conant (Thomas Dekker), Diana Meade (Shelley Hennig), Faye Chamberlain (Phoebe Tonkin), Melissa Glaser (Jessica Parker Kennedy), and Nick Armstrong (Louis Hunter), reveal to Cassie that she comes from a long line of witches and is the final member of their coven; with her they are able to unlock the full extent of their powers. Awesome, but Impractical: As in Real Life, many Secret Weapons are a liability, a great drain on resources with very little usability. Hillary takes Nick to the French Resistance (yes, in East Germany), the charismatic leader of which is her former lover, and who seizes on the opportunity to use Nick's knowledge of the prison to break Dr.
Initially Cassie refuses to believe that she is a witch, even after Adam helps her to unlock her powers.
Flammond out.That's the plot, but the movie is perhaps better appreciated for its farcical, even savage zaniness. It is only after she discovers an old leather-bound book of spells left to her by her late mother, Amelia, that Cassie begins to accept her power. Da Chief: Secret Squirrel's superior is Double Q, a balding man who respects his competence, but is frequently annoyed by his tendency to enter his office in ways other than using the front door. It parodies everything, from rock idols to forced perspective shots to Professional Wrestling to goose-stepping Nazis to, well, cow disguises, with the ZAZ team's trademark Rapid-Fire Comedy. Expressive Mask: The eyeholes of the hat Secret wears over his face are somehow able to register his emotions. As Cassie begins her junior year in high school, she comes into contact with a group of unlikely friends. The students (who all seem to be excessively popular and privileged) dabble in occult practices, and when they realize that Cassie has the powers of a blood witch, they talk her into joining their coven. After Cassie reluctantly agrees to accompany her friends in their group, they soon realize that with a twelfth witch in the coven they are able to cast spells more powerful than they could before. Eye-Obscuring Hat: Subverted by Secret Squirrel, whose hat brim almost touches his nose, but has two eye holes so that he can see.
It takes Nick a couple tries to find the right one, but there seem to be several more than strictly necessary. The novel ends with Cassie discovering that she is a "blood witch"; a person who is naturally born with magical powers. Not even when experimental jet aircraft appear from nowhere, not when they're shot down, not even when their friends are killed. Fake Defector: "Not So Idle Idol" had Secret attempt to gain Yellow Pinkie's trust by pretending to go renegade after Double Q agreed to pretend to fire him. Doomed by Canon: No matter how brilliant the latest Nemesis project, you know that the Allies will triumph. The Germans in the movie are supposed to be East Germans, but their uniforms are Nazi-era uniforms with the swastikas removed.
Overwhelmed with the ritual to become part of the circle, Adam walks Cassie to her house and comforts her. Then we snap back to reality where he's being whipped in a German prison and he exclaims, "Thank God".
They were being watched by Faye, who later blackmails Cassie to get what she wants: the skull, and the leadership of the coven.
Obeying Faye's first orders as the leader, they unleash Black John souls and he resurrects. Escort Mission: Shows up in the majority of missions, but is surprisingly tolerable because the people you're escorting are usually both tough and agile. Almost Dead Guy: Every time Latrine enters the scene, he's been shot, beaten up, tortured, or whatever, and is gasping out a desperate message.
Giant Flyer: The Daimler-Benz Project C, which turns up in the final level, qualifies at the lower end of the scale. Later, a dangerous and mysterious force known as ?The Darkness? begins to terrorize the citizens of New Salem. He Knows About Timed Hits: During one of the tutorial missions, your flight instructor explains a game mechanic in which you can "slow time down" and "speed time up" if it helps you during a dogfight.
It is later discovered that ?The Darkness? was being controlled by an evil and powerful witch named Black John.
This can be especially jarring given that the overall tone of the game is mean to be mostly historically accurate and simulator-based. Loophole Abuse: One episode has Double Q threaten to fire Secret if he doesn't enter his office using a door. Black John was a former member of the Circle many centuries ago, until he began to dabble in black magic, and was killed by the members of his own coven. Improbable Piloting Skills: A few of them, most notably Reinforced Plot Armor and Gravity Schmavity. When Secret enters by making a door in the ceiling, Double Q fires him for not using the front door, only for Morocco Mole to point out that he said "a door" and that therefore Secret followed his instructions to the letter. Yearning to avenge his death, Black John continues to torment the city by unleashing a series of demons upon the town.
It's Up to You: The AI is quite decent, and your wingmen will down the odd Nazi plane, but they will never achieve objectives by themselves. However, as Cassie and Diana scramble to warn the others that they are in danger, a group of witch hunters attempt to abduct the children and rid the town of them.
Just Plane Wrong: Tiny, nitpicky details - the XP5U is called the Flying Pancake in the game, but that model is more accurately known as the Flying Flapjack, for example.


Later, as Black John continues to wreak havoc among New Salem, Cassie is faced with the decision of which side of the Circle she will stand on. There is, however, one large, glaring error, though it's not the plane, its the physics: Aircraft, when destroyed, simply literally drop straight to the ground while exploding, regardless of the direction or speed they were flying. Midair Collision: Can be done, although it's very difficult and does almost no damage to either participant. He tries to discredit Secret Squirrel by creating five robot doubles and ordering them to commit crimes, but his creations turn on him when Secret uses a recording to reveal to the robots that Dangit intends to dispose of them once they've served their purpose. Assumed Win: Nick turns a planned operatic performance into a rock concert by assuming that the lauding of the singer is meant for him. No Swastikas: Mostly played straight, with icons and aircraft using the Iron Cross instead, but the swastika does turn up on some aircraft and in videos and stills used in the transitions. The first thing we see him doing is sitting around, being a Scary Black Man, smoking a huge cigar. But between the secret coven of witches she belongs to and the extraordinary power she holds within her, Cassie is leading a far from ordinary life.
Secret has an allegiance-switching gun in "Scuba Duba Duba", which he uses to make Scuba Duba's shark turn on him. Later he drinks gasoline from a bottle, single-handedly wields a 19th century smooth-bore cannon as a firearm, exhibits Improbable Aiming Skills, wrestles a German soldier WWE-style, and apparently has people waiting just off-camera to hand him machine guns. The good guy's squadron is called "The Battlehawks", in reference to Battlehawks 1942 , the first game of the classical trilogy. While stranded on a deserted island, Hillary and Nigel build a modern home out of "bamboo, dried seaweed, and snot", complete with functioning garage door (and a remote). After Secret was disintegrated by his own laser gun, Morocco swept up his ashes while retreating to think of a new strategy in capturing Yellow Pinkie.
Suspiciously Similar Substitute: In the last three episodes, Yellow Pinkie is replaced by Hy Spy.
Behind the Black: Played for laughs as they come upon a pair of boots that they should be able to tell are just a pair of boots in a field, but they don't realize that there is no enemy soldier there until the camera shows it to the audience.
Wing Man: About a dozen, and toward the end, several of the ones who have flown with you join you in battle.
Like Yellow Pinkie, Hy Spy is bald and is described as being Secret Squirrel's greatest foe. There Was a Door: A Running Gag is Double Q being annoyed by Secret Squirrel entering his office in every method but using the front door, which surprises him on the one occasion where Secret actually does use the front door. Big Electric Switch When Nick Rivers is being taken to be executed, the electric chair is activated with an electric switch. For Cassie and her Circle of witches, it's hard to imagine life in New Salem getting any worse. A band of powerful witch hunters is targeting the group, determined to destroy them one by one. Bigger Is Better in Bed: Hillary literally breaks out a tape measure when she's reunited with Nigel, holding it in a way that implies a spectacular result. And Cassie's half sister, Scarlett, won't rest until she has a spot in the Circle?even if she has to kill Cassie to get it.The Circle's only hope against their enemies is Cassie's father's Book of Shadows?an ancient guide to the world of dark magic.
When the eel shocks him Secret's body momentarily disappears, leaving only his skeleton."Secret Squirrel?!" "In the flesh!" Specifically, the Super Secret version. Bilingual Bonus: While a lot of the German phrases are rendered in As Long as It Sounds Foreign style, a few of them are actual jokes. Cassie's drawn in by the book's sinister spell, and it starts controlling her emotions and impulses, unraveling her relationship with Adam as it takes over her life. An Arm and a Leg: Greg's motivation for villainy is that he's a gingerbread man whose leg was bitten off by the girl who baked him. Secret Squirrel names the result "Still Life without Parole", indicating that the Chameleon is still alive even though he can't move.
Cassie hasn?t felt this alone since she moved to New Salem and joined the Circle ? the closest thing to a family she?s ever known.
But now that the Circle has been possessed by powerful evil spirits, Cassie is left with no choice but to turn to her dark side to rescue them. If only he'd hooked up his extension cord to somewhere other than the Secret Service Solar Energy Station, then he wouldn't have been confronted by Secret Squirrel, Morocco Mole, and the Chief. As she struggles to get through to her friends, and her soul mate, Adam, she finds an unexpected ally?one who will tempt her more than ever before.
Artistic License ? Biology: Secret and Morocco use heat-sensor glasses to track down the Chameleon. With her enemies quickly closing in, Cassie fights to keep her heart true and her soul pure. But she knows better than anyone that all magic comes at a price, especially when Black John?s Book of Shadows is involved. Asshole Victim: Hot Rodney endangered Morocco Mole to try and prevent Secret Squirrel from winning the race and incessantly gloated about how Secret's unwillingness to let Morocco die would make his victory a shoo-in.
During her residence in New Salem, Cassie befriends the kind and warm hearted Diana, who welcomes Cassie into her ?clique.? Throughout the series, Cassie discovers her family?s lineage of magic and the darkness that threatens both her and her coven. When Secret tricked him into putting on the dynamite belt after he won the race, he totally deserved it.
Unlike the rest of her coven she has true dreams which allow her to see past and future events. They also appear as their usual selves in "Scirocco Mole", along with Yogi Bear and Boo Boo. Her father, Black John, planned for her to be the leader of the circle, but she turned on him and was able to kill him with the help of the circle. Reversing the situation, Secret and Morocco star in a dog biscuit ad featured in the Two Stupid Dogs episode "Let's Make a Right Price". He and Cassie met briefly before she came to New Salem when she helped him escape witch hunters, but he never gave her his name. Continuity Nod: In "Agent Penny", when Morocco Mole goes through the files during his first day of replacing Penny as the Chief's secretary, he mentions villains from previous episodes such as Goldflipper and Queen Bea. He and Diana were involved, having had feelings for each other since childhood, but Adam falls for Cassie without meaning to betray Diana, and at the end of the third book Diana gives her blessing for them to be together. He has a dog named Raj and is skilled in nature magic; he is many times compared with nature gods. O even though his episode hadn't aired yet, though that may be because the episodes aired in a different order from when they were produced. Throughout the series, Diana becomes jealous of Adam?s attraction toward Cassie, and also the extent of Cassie?s powers, but eventually gives them her blessing.
Traditionally beautiful and incredibly patient, she is a natural leader of the circle but is many times challenged by her responsibilities.
After the arrival of Cassie Blake, Faye is hateful toward Cassie, as she sadistically uses magic to cause Cassie harm. Throughout the series, Faye is the best friend of Deborah and Suzan and they are considered the meanest girls in New England.
She allies herself with Black John and falls in love with him before she realizes that he is just using her and turns against him with the circle. After the arrival of Cassie Blake, Nick instantly becomes attracted to her, which sparks a rivalry between him and Adam. Deadly Dodging: Used against One Ton, a rampaging panda whom Secret must stop but isn't allowed to attack. After the arrival of Cassie Blake, both Christopher and Douglas agree to help Faye taunt Cassie, in exchange for Faye convincing her friends, Deborah and Suzan, to go out with them. Throughout the series, Cassie discovers that Christopher and Douglas also had a sister, whom had mysteriously died on the night of her fifteenth birthday, shortly after Cassie arrived in New Salem. They were both devastated by her death and tried many times to convince the circle to take action against the outsiders who they suspected to be involved. Amazingly, the guy falls for it, probably because Secret is rather disturbingly convincing as a girl squirrel. Eventually it was revealed that their sister was killed by Sean under Black John's influenced and they were able to forgive him. In "One Ton," Morocco suggests that what the villain needs is "a mate." One Gilligan Cut later and Secret is dressed as a sexy female panda.
However, it fails miserably, considering he gets beaten up offscreen by said villain pretty much immediately. Disney Villain Death: The snake sorcerer that hatches from an egg at the end of "Egg" boasts about his reign of terror only to fall out the airplane's open door to his doom. After the arrival of Cassie Blake, Deborah is initially hateful toward Cassie, however she later becomes an unsuspected ally of Cassie, after the discovery of Cassie?s exceedingly powerful magic. Dumbass No More: Secret is less eccentric and more competent compared to his original version.
Despite her attitude, she respects those who stand up to her and likes Cassie because she has a hidden strength. After the arrival of Cassie Blake, Laurel initially finds Cassie unappealing, however she later becomes a good friend of Cassie, and helps her to control her powers. Expressive Mask: The reflections in Morocco's sunglasses sometimes change shape according to his mood (for example, turning into exclamation points when he's surprised).
Creator Cameo: The three directors, Jim Abrahams, David Zucker, Jerry Zucker, play the three guards who arrest Nick in the "prop room".
Throughout the series, Laurel is commonly noted for her proficiency of brewing magical potions, and casting spells to heal her alcoholic step-father.
Family-Unfriendly Death: Greg the gingerbread man gets eaten alive (onscreen no less) by a horde of hungry ants.
Nick is about to be executed by firing squad but they get a call that he is allowed to perform his concert that night. She has a lot of knowledge on crystals, which is vital for the final battle with Black John. Flash Back: Goes recursive in "Scirocco Mole" when Morocco explains how his twin brother Scirocco has always bullied him. They make the call to stop the execution but the only one close enough to the phone is an elderly woman on a walker.
After the arrival of Cassie Blake, Sean is initially weary of Cassie, and finds her to be an ?unnatural witch?. Throughout the series, Sean has a very distant relationship with everyone except Faye, for whom he has an undying respect.
It's later revealed that Black John possessed him to commit several murders but the circle was able to heal him from the curse. Fully Dressed Cartoon Animal: Penny is the only character in the series to be fully dressed. After the arrival of Cassie Blake, due to Suzan's friendship with Faye, Suzan is initially cautious of Cassie, however later becomes a good friend of Cassie's.
Throughout the series, Suzan also becomes a good friend with Diana, despite Faye?s disapproval. The exhibits are in prison uniforms, making it more of a Super Secret Prison cunningly disguised as a Super Secret Zoo. The military vehicle that crashes into it manages to leave the scene of the accident successfully, despite being on fire. Furry Reminder: Hot Rodney, a rooster, is at one point distracted from the race when Secret shoots corn in his direction. She comes to New Salem to kill Cassie to gain a spot on the circle, become it's leader as she was "meant to". Going Commando: In "Voodoo Goat", it is established that voodoo dolls only work when used with a personal belonging of the person the doll represents. Secret manages to get his voodoo doll of the Voodoo Goat to work by stealing the villain's underwear. In consequence of her mother's use of dark magic, she couldn't stay in New Salem, and was later killed by witch hunters. Fake-Out Make-Out: Nick and Hillary manage to combine this with Lost in a Crowd, avoiding a patrol by ducking into a park crowded with couples making out and doing likewise. Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal: As in the original, but now hardly anybody wears pants, as Secret quite often demonstrates when pulling open his coat to deploy gadgetry. Fearsome Foot: Masterfully parodied in a scene in which Nick is trying to infiltrate a fortress by crawling on the grass.
She is the daughter of Amelia Blake and John Blackwell, best friend and older paternal half-sister of Diana Meade, ex-girlfriend and best friend of Adam Conant and also a member of the Chance Harbor Circle.
Though Chief did seem to be quite embarrassed when it was revealed the bison wore bikini briefs in "Voodoo Goat". Cassie was a happy, normal teenage girl until her mother Amelia died in what appeared to be a tragic accidental fire but not such as an accident. And, oddly enough, Secret removes a pair of shorts when changing behind a screen in "Agent Penny". Orphaned and deeply saddened, Cassie moved in with her warm and loving grandmother Jane in the beautiful small town of Chance Harbor, Washington - the town her mother left so many years before - where the residents seems to know more about Cassie than she does about herself. Fictional Sport: Skeet surfing - combining skeet shooting with surfing (complete with a parodic Beach Boys style surf song) in the opening sequence. As Cassie gets to know her high school classmates, including sweet-natured Diana, her handsome boyfriend Adam, brooding loner Nick, mean-girl Faye and her sidekick Melissa, strange and frightening things begin to happen.
This is, of course, as stupidly dangerous as it sounds, with errant shots hitting palm trees, hang gliders, and even passing airplanes.
When her new friends explain that they are all descended from powerful witches, and they've been waiting for Cassie to join them and complete a new generation of the Secret Circle, Cassie refuses to believe them - until Adam shows her how to unlock her incredible magical powers. But it's not until Cassie discovers a message from her mother in an old leather-bound book of spells hidden in her mother's childhood bedroom, that she understands her true and dangerous destiny. What Cassie and the others don't yet know is that darker powers are at play, powers that might be linked to the adults in the town, including Diana's father and Faye's mother - and that Cassie's mother's death might not have been an accident. Hoist by His Own Petard: After Hot Rodney wins the race, Secret gives him the same dynamite belt he strapped to Morocco Mole while claiming that it is a victory belt. But the more time passes by, the more Cassie gets confident of herself and develops her incredible potential. Shortly before Cassie's birth John betrayed Amelia by having an affair with Elizabeth Meade which resulted in Diana Meade being born less than a month later. O," where the titular doctor cuts off all the lights in the world and blocks out the sun, leaving none of the characters able to see anything while the audience can still see them.
The pilot and Resistance members using the RAF emblem on the side of the plane as a dartboard.
Sara Armstrong stated in the Witness flashback that Amelia would never forgive John for what he did to her and she said that Amelia helped Ethan in his plot to killed John which backfired. Later consumed by guilt and stripped of her magic, she later abandoned what was left her coven by moving to Los Angeles with Cassie.
Double gag in that it's actually a high school fight song (Sherwood High School in Wisconsin). Amelia had to keep witchcraft and Cassie's magic legacy along with the truth about her father a secret from her daughter prior to her death in Pilot.
Getting Crap Past the Radar: In the prison sequence, a sex toy called "The Anal Intruder" is prominently featured. Despite Cassie's independent and strong-willed persona, she is a very kind and loving young woman who cares deeply about her family and friends.
Hot Skitty-on-Wailord Action: Queen Bea, a (wait for it) queen bee, is infatuated with Secret Squirrel, a squirrel. Hillary measures every inch of The Torch, who is either hung like a stallion, fully erect, or both.
Two phallic scenes in a row: Cedric's telescopic antenna and the ballet, the latter of which was bowdlerized for cable.
First her mother died and the loss, along with the realization she will have to start doing things on her own, mae her tougher. Then her grandmother died and she channeled all the anger she felt against the witch hunters.After the horrific death of her mother, Cassie travels to the picturesque town of Chance Harbor to live with her warm and loving grandmother Jane Blake. As Cassie begins her first day at her new high school, she comes to know the gentle and kind Diana Meade who invites Cassie to join her and her friends at the Boathouse Bar and Grill. Later, while awaiting for Diana at the Boathouse, Cassie is introduced to Faye Chamberlain and her best friend Melissa Glaser Becoming annoyed by Faye, and impatient with Diana, Cassie decides to leave until her car inexplicably catches fire.

It turns out to be Nigel, who was evidently "turned" during his time with the salvage pirates. O uses a satellite to block out the sun so that the entire country is shrouded in darkness. It appears to pull away from the station, but as we look out the train's window we see that the station has pulled away from the train. A storm turns the day trip into an overnight excursion, so Faye suggests a little game of Truth or Dare to liven up the evening. Once the case is solved, the Chief still can't find the bathroom until Secret explains that it is now nighttime and he forgot to turn on the lights.

Meanwhile, Diana is thrilled when her grandmother Kate drops in for a visit, but Charles is suspicious of his mother's motives after Kate takes an unusual interest in Cassie.
Secret manages to save his friend in time, but ultimately loses the race, though he succeeds in giving Hot Rodney some last-minute comeuppance by tricking him into putting on the same dynamite belt that was strapped to Morocco.
Meanwhile, Faye recruits a mysterious stranger named Lee to help her with a spell that could change the balance of the Circle forever.
After Cassie asks Adam for help when she wants to look into her father's past, and their search leads them to an eerily familiar place.
It also rekindles an old flame when Adam, thrilled to be spending time with Cassie again, asks her to the Fire and Ice dance. In an effort to be a better father, Ethan offers to chaperone the dance, much to Adam's dismay. After Jake returns to Chance Harbor to warn Cassie that unless they find out how her father was killed in the boat fire sixteen years ago, she'll meet with the same tragic death. However, after Jake suggests an extremely dangerous method to finally uncover what happened on that fateful day, Adam and Diana suspect he may have an ulterior motive.

After confiding in Adam, he tells her he knows Blackwell was looking for a device to drain witches' powers and clearly back to his old ways. Faye shows up at Lee's house to invite him to the school fundraiser, but is taken aback when Eva greets her at the door claiming to be Lee's girlfriend. Meanwhile, Melissa encourages Diana to date a normal guy and points her in the direction of a new, handsome guy in town. He suggests they go visit her grandmother, Jane to find out if there is a spell to reverse it. Meanwhile, Eva starts stalking Faye and Charles makes his next move against Blackwell.Jake gets a surprise visit from an old acquaintance named Samuel, a witch hunter, who has a message for Blackwell about Eben's surprising next move. Cassie intervenes, forces Samuel to reveal his news and is stunned to find out what Eben is trying to resurrect. Meanwhile, Diana is frustrated that keeping the secrets of who they are is building a barrier between her and Grant.
Faye and Melissa agree to help out Adam at the Boathouse and in return get him to help them use their magic to enhance their love life.
In Crystal, Cassie finds out that Diana was her half sister because Royce, Jake's grandfather, said that his Crystal was hidden in a mine and he spelled it so that no Witch with Dark Magic can acess it.
When Cassie and Jake got to the mine to rescue Adam and Melissa, Cassie started choking and couldn't go in, since she had Dark Magic. Later, Diana said that she couldn't help Melissa and Adam out of the mine either because she was choking as well, meaning that she has dark magic and is the other child of Blackwell in the Circle.
In Traitor , Cassie realized that her grandmother (Jane Blake) is dead, so she falls into sadness and anger believing the witch hunters had killed her grandmother. Adam tried to comfort her and she accidently kissed him, resulting her to be very sorry.While Cassie confronted John that she wants to kill the witch hunters now more than ever. At the Abandoned House, Faye and Jake brought some good news that they found a crystal, but its energy was drained out, but was stolen by the traitor later in the episode.
This resulted Cassie, Diana,Jake and Faye into going the most creepiest place on earth-as Faye mentioned, but before that Jake wanted to asked about the witch who was working for Eben so he arranged a meeting with Issac so they came there first. Instead of Issac there, it was Ian who told Jake that Eben had killed Isaac because he had let the traitor escaped and informed him that he never met the traitor. Cassie then attacked Ian by sufficating him causing Diana and Jake to try and stop her, after that Ian critisized Jake and went away.When half the circle and Cassie arrived there, the creepiest place on Earth actually was an The Abandoned Carnival. As the circle went in they were seperated into two groups; Faye with Jake and Cassie with Diana even though Diana wanted to go with Faye instead because she doesn't want to talk with Cassie about her being half-sister of Cassie, but Faye said she doesn't want to go with any of the dark magic super twins with her which changed Diana's mind of going with Faye.
Cassie tried to talk with Diana that dark magic isn't that bad, but it can save people like she saved Diana during the time Luke almost killed Diana (Masked). When both Diana and Cassie heard a noise they ran there and saw the traitor.Cassie decided to kill the traitor, but Diana insisted not to so she just knock him down. Adam Conant is a witch, son of Catherine and Ethan Conant, ex-boyfriend of both Diana Meade and Cassie Blake, who is also his best friend. Adam found out about his magic with the help of his girlfriend Diana sometime before Cassie Blake arrived into Chance Harbor, Washington. Always feeling responsible for Cassie, his behavior raised question for Diana, and when Adam's father told her Cassie and Adam's love was meant to be, she broke up with him. After trying to win her trust back, he became more and more confident about his relationship with Cassie and the two officially started to date, until John Blackwell, Cassie's newly returned father, told them their love was a curse more than a destiny.
Adam was born on January 28, 1995 to Catherine and Ethan Conant, but only grew with his father, because his mother died in the Boatyard Fire sometime after his birth. However, he was really close to his grandfather, James Conant who used to distract him by cloaking and uncloaking objects, as well as telling him stories.
During his teens, Adam began a romantic relationship with Diana Meade which grew stronger and stronger, until Diana found out they were witches that she and Adam were too, in her mother's Book of shadows.
He first saw her in Chance Harbor High School's hallway, but properly met her at the Boathouse, where he works as a bus boy for his father. A few minutes later, he saved her when her car mysteriously caught on fire and brought her back to her grandmother's house.
The following day, Adam and Cassie met at the Abandoned House where Diana revealed to Cassie she was a witch too - born to be in a coven along herself, Melissa Glaser, Nick Armstrong, Faye Chamberlain and Adam. Scared, Cassie took off and Adam followed in the woods, where he calmed her down and showed her the truth, by making the drops of water levitate. At night, he came to apologize for trying to kiss her during the afternoon and told her she was not alone.
After Cassie provoked an accident in chemistry class, Adam suggested to help her control her undeniable magic. But again, while they were practicing, their "connection" made the spell stronger and a light bulb exploded. When Diana told him she was afraid of his sudden friendship, he reassured her and kissed her. Later at night, he picked up Cassie and went to the beach and bound himself and his magic with the others, completing the Circle, after Faye almost killed Sally Matthews. A friend of Adam, Luke, asked him if he could invite Cassie to the School Dance, and to protect his relationship with Diana, Adam helped him approach Cassie. During the Dance however, Cassie soon distanced herself from Luke, and as nobody was dancing, Sally pushed Cassie to dance with Adam. After learning that something bad happened to Heather Barnes, and that it might have been Amelia Blake's fault, Adam agreed to accompany Cassie to Finn Creek in order to investigate. He and Cassie later searched for an explanation in the Blake Family's Book of Shadows that Cassie showed to him, and found out what was keeping Heather away was a suppression sigil. Diana however told Cassie it is too dangerous to undo it, and Adam learned with Diana's own Book that the sigil was used to counteract possession. Trying to warn her, it was too late however, as she had undone the spell and Heather attacked Cassie and Faye.
Adam and Diana were having a romantic diner at Diana's to spend some quality time together, apart from the Circle, when Cassie texted them about troubles. They rushed to the Abandoned House to see what was happening and found out Melissa was possessed.
In the end, the Circle failed to get the Demon, who had sneaked into Nick's body, out of their friend Melissa before he "supposedly" drowned himself to kill it. His ability to charm those around him and his utter devotion towards people are other admirable traits.
