After leaving us with a truly evil cliffhanger in the previous episode, the second season finale of Salem (WGN America, Sundays, 10/9C) finds justice being meted out – just not by the personage we might have expected it from.
The Witching Hour is a fast-paced, truly gloriously demented work of entertainment.
After this week there remains but one episode of Salem’s (WGN America, Sundays, 10/9C) second season, so it’s only right that everything should lead up to best cliffhanger moment of the season to date (yes, better even than when the Devil himself spoke to Cotton Mather and John Alden through young John).
Thanks to the Countess Marburg, Mary Sibley’s plans have gone awry and her command of Salem has become a desperate bid to save her son’s life. Now we see how the endgame shapes up. It ain’t pretty…
“Salem” is just weeks away from the season finale. As season 2 premiered April 5, we watched as the witch wars continue to heighten. Mary Sibley (Janet Montgomery) meets her match as a new witch, Countess Marburg (Lucy Lawless) threatens those around her, including her long lost son John (Oliver Bell) while John Alden (Shane West) returns to Salem and learns he had a son with Mary. Cotton Mather (Seth Gabel) and Anne Hale (Tazmin Merchant) forge a new romance. Tituba (Asheley Madekwe) betrays Mary. Shane West took time to talk with reporters about season 2 of Salem.
Salem (WGN America, Sundays, 10/9C) has, over the course of its two seasons, been about many things – political expedience, the price of love (and hate), and even the nature of good and evil. Mostly, though, it’s about the love of parents for their child – and the way that might interfere from the conquest of the New World.
The second season of WGN America’s first scripted hit series, Salem is nearly upon us. The second season premiere is Sunday April 5th (10/9C) – and if you’re not up-to-date on the series, the network will marathon it on Saturday, April 4 from 7a.m./6C — 8/7 ET.
To help get you in the proper mood, follow the jump for the newly released extended Season Two teaser.
Season Two of WGN America’s supernatural hit, Salem, launches in April. In the meantime, the network has released four very cool, very disturbing pieces of key art to tantalize fans. The posters feature Mary Sibley (above), Tituba, Anne Hale and Mercy Lewis (after the jump).
