“I’m discussing statuary.”
“This wall thing.”
Seth Gabel of ‘Fringe’, Tamzin Merchant of ‘The Tudors’ and Xander Berkeley of Nikita’ also star. There are beards and conniving people. There is impending lunacy in Salem. Cotton Mather (Gabel) rants and Giles Corey (Kevin Tighe of ‘Lost’) lurks. Mary married George Sibley and is now important. She doesn’t look like a puritan. Sibley is a drooling invalid. Cotton casts aspersions and sows discord. John Alden returns home with the wrong kind of personality for 1692.
There is sex and nudity. Mary is a witch and afflicts Mercy with suffering. Hale (Berkeley) is the father of Anne (Merchant). There is no resumption of Mary and John’s love. Mary doesn’t dress or act like a puritan. There are mirrors, fur collars and jewellery in puritan Salem. Giles Corey knows something about Mary. Cotton leads Mercy around on a lead like a dog to sniff out witches. He’s in a triumphal state. Nobody has detached dignity.
The hot witches wear Victoria’s Secret like underwear. Giles dies. This was okay. John learns witches are real. There is a twist. Mary plots and cannot act. People cackle suavely. Mary speaks with transparent indifference.
“Who said that?”
“Who know not god.”
“There ain’t any Aldens left.”
“Stop your weeping woman.”
“I don’t want to do this.”
The Stone Child
There is a mention of The Grand Rite, something big Mary and her fellow witches are carrying out. John is un-arrested. Mary damns the midwife who is her friend and whose compassion was a calamitous decision. There is blood vomiting. John makes a sound argument for sense but is ignored. There is bad acting and Mary does evil. John is like super annoyed. This was terrible with no ensorcelling strangeness.
“The doom that’s come upon Salem.”
“Looked dead until they didn’t.”
“Hide your wives! Hide your sheep!”
“The pig man?”
