Tv Season Info

The third and final season of the supernatural horror series "Salem" deals with the aftermath as the Dark Lord (Oliver Bell) rises to power. His plan is to build a New World devoid of Puritan values, which grants him the approval of many witches. Unfortunately for them, he also secretly wants to destroy all of humanity, starting in Salem. However, Tituba (Ashley Madekwe) has a terrible vision of hell on Earth and finds out the only person who can stop the devil is Mary (Janet Montgomery), who died saving John (Shane West). Their quest for the season is to find a way to bring Mary back from the dead and free Salem from the Dark Lord. Meanwhile, Isaac (Iddo Goldberg) tries to get revenge on Mercy (Elise Eberle), who is now running the brothel; and Anne (Tamzin Merchant) keeps her husband (Seth Gabel) imprisoned.

I love the cast and producers. Normally I'm not a fan of witchcraft, but the way it's handled on Salem is some of the best I've ever seen. It's one of those shows that really sucked me in last season.

After three glorious seasons, Salem said goodbye tonight. I'm just not ready for it to end!

Merchant has been wonderful throughout the series but the last two episodes have really been a tour de force. She captures the gallop of the true dark horse in a race of purebreds with grace and a few charms.

If Salem has to leave us, then "Black Sunday" was a fantastic way to send it off. The third season had its issues, but everything was wrapped up in a neat and satisfying little bow in the end.

Clearly unaware that there's no surer way to jinx yourself than to announce that you are invincible, the devil declared in Salem's Season 3 premiere Wednesday that, with Mary pushing up daisies, no one could stop the "great terror."
