These people would be wrong because towards the end of Act IV, John died for his wife, and that is being very loyal. For example, in The Crucible John is seen as loyal because he loves his wife, and is willing to do anything to get rid of Abigail, and break up the relationship between John and Abigail. Proctor says, “...” This makes John loyal because obviously he cares about his marriage, and he does not want some little girl ruining that. He feels that maybe if he shows Elizabeth that he does not care for Abigail anymore, does not want anything to do with her, and is completely done with her he could gain her trust back.
