The hand maiden’s punishment of hanging might have been a little less deserved. They were guilty of not respecting Penelope, Telemachus or Euryclea. They had not been the ones plotting to kill Telemachus but in betraying Penelope by not following her orders, only the orders of the wooers. But Odysseus needed to show that any misbehavior needed to be dealt with. Hence, they did deserve it when you look at what the wooers did and that the hand maidens supported their bad decisions.
Next, John is saying how he was alone in a room with Abigail when she told him that there was really no witchcraft in the town. Elizabeth completely ignore the fact that there is no witchcraft in the town and that John might not be able to prove it. She accusingly says “You were alone with her?”. This shows her distrust and suspicion of John. Miller revealed to the readers in Act I that John had an affair with Abigail and she was fired.

She was gone, and I had no one by my side that I felt confident enough to share with. After a little while I started doing absolutely miserably in school, lying to my mom so much, that after a certain amount of time, my teacher called her and told her everything. My mom was so shocked that she could not believe it, my lies lasted for probably about a year and after sometime she has of course forgiven me, but I was all alone through all of this again. I felt so lonely and broken that……I wanted to end my life. I went to the extent of writing a good bye note, many times, but I always stopped myself, believing and on some level knowing that I had to fight and that I had to live at least for my mom, because she does for me.

On the other note, Jack Scherting’s presumption of Emily’s motive of killing Howard Barron was also shocking but not too far fetch. Jack Scherting’s idea helped me see the story in a completely different spectrum about the relationship between Emily and her father.

I do not believe Abigail and her possessed group have any true evidence to back up these accusations. I have come to the realization she is charging me because I do not believe her.
