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…
It’s season 2, and things are heating up in the witch wars at “Salem“. As the body count continues to rise, the number of people (or witches) to trust, plummets. Critical decisions must be made, personal battles must be overcome, and the fate of John Alden’s (Shane West) and Mary Sibley’s (Janet Montgomery) son will be decided as Countess Marburg (Lucy Lawless) ensues in trying to bring Mary down and secure her place of power in Salem. Co-creators Adam Simon and Brannon Braga talk with reporters about season 2 of Salem.
In “Salem“, the battle between Mary Sibley (Janet Montgomery) and Countess Marburg (Lucy Lawless) continues to heighten as Mary embraces her role as a mother. In the same token, John Alden (Shane West) is met with surprise as he reunites with Mary and realizes he has a son–with Mary. Jealousy and betrayal continue to rear its ugly head in the city of Salem. Janet Montgomery took time to talk with reporters about season 2 of “Salem”.
“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.
Arousal is the beginning of all magic, we are reminded as WGN America’s Salem (Sundays, 10/9C) builds towards a big finish to its second season.
Mary Sibley and Countess Marburg continue to feign allegiance, each to the other – as they scheme to achieve dominance over each other – and new allegiances are born in this week’s episode, Dead Birds.
Anytime a show kicks off it’s new season with a graphic scene of someone getting their penis chopped and being replaced with a crow – no, really, it’s exactly what you think it would be, you know you have just left all sense of reality and logic behind. WGN’s Salem returns this week with a barnburner of an opener.
Hey, I’m not ashamed to say that I can be bought. So it’s a good thing that after watching the season 2 premiere of WGN’s Salem I’m fully on board this weird, strange and grotesque ride. There’s a moment in the S2 premiere that everyone will be talking about but I’m not allowed to say anything until it airs. Boo!
If you read and watch the interviews from my recent visit next weekend, oh they be chock full of spoilers. So if Brannon Braga, Shane West or Lucy Lawless drop spoilers who am I to to deny you? Hey, I told WGN I don’t edit, we go raw on this site 🙂 One of the really cool things about this show – I didn’t see any green screens, it looked like most of the sets are real. Anyhoo, check out this creepy trailer for WGN’s Salem Season 2 – Witch War!
