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."

    First, I need to make a confession. I am a grown woman who is no longer frightened by ANY horror movie. I walk in the dead of night in dark woods with no fear at all. However... (I hear the Jaws theme in my head), Increase Mather (brilliantly played by Stephen Lang) absolutely scares the B'jesus out of me. The thought of walking into him even in brought daylight... well... to the core. Amazing 3 seasons and SO pleased that like so many, it didn't get the chop so there was a beginning, middle and end. Beware..... AGGHHH! Increase!!!!

    Sorry but no way in hell Anne Hale should be taking the last W. The season was starting of good with the reveal of the birth of the devil but later on after he is born... The word love gets thrown all over the place. I felt that's all that drove the season, the only person who gave a s*** about Salem was Mathers and he ENDS UP WITH AN ENTERNAL L. ARE YOU F********* KIDDING ME?!?! Back to my main point, NO MARBURG SHOULD BE TAKING ANY W's !!! Anne was cool until her crazy sided busted out of her. I mean I expected for her to get more cruel and tricky as most witches are, but you telling me RIGHT WHEN MATHERS BREAKS HER HEART, THIS B***** OUTSMARTS EVERYONE ONE THE FIELD AND GETS OFF RULING SHIT?!?!? Man I swear anyone other than Hale taking a W I could live with. She didn't deserve it AND MATHERS...FUCKED UP HOW MATHERS ENDED UP. I feel he had the most wisdom and compassion for everyone in the season...EVERYONE(EVEN HALE)BUT B******* ARE TRIFLING. ENDING STATEMENTS - Characters with most wisdom shouldn't be taking Eternal L's. - Best Scene goes to Cotton Mather, When he gave hale that "FUCK YOU THOUGHT BITCH" caress before going to hell. - Only consistent thing in this series was acting.
