Salem - Episode 1.01 - Pilot: The Vow - Preview

Salem asks the intriguing question, what happens when witches are in charge of the witch trials that plagued 17th century Salem, Massachusetts? The answer is a griping tale with many twists and turns that kept me glued as many secrets were revealed.

Early on we meet John and Mary who are secretly in love. John has to go off to war and assures Mary that he will return in no more than a year. After he leaves, Mary is left with a secret that she resolves with the help of her companion, Tituba.

Seven years later, John returns from war to find that everyone thinks he has died in the war. Salem is in the middle of a witch panic. Cotton Mather has been sent in to see to the trials. John learns that Mary is the richest woman in Salem because she has married his enemy in his absence. Mary is a well-respected member of the town, but she has secrets of her own that if revealed could destroy her. Mary is torn between her past love for John and her secrets although she feels that John betrayed and abandoned her. John feels that Mary was faithless when she married in his absence.

Rev. Mather is challenged about his lack of caution when he insists that witches remain among the people of Salem. John clearly doubts the existence of witches. Rev. Mather has secrets of his own. He tells John that he spent the years in between when they last met becoming an expert of witches while John was off fighting in the war. While subduing a troubled girl, she reveals that a being she calls "The Hag" is responsible for her torment.

With the witch trials as the backdrop, there is danger lurking around every corner. Do the witches really exist, or are they just a figment of fear and imagination? How can anyone tell the difference? If there really are witches, what do they want?

I found the pilot to be very entertaining with enough action and surprises that it kept me guessing as to what would happen next. The production value was also superior with a very engaging cast. There are many secrets revealed in the pilot and I'm sure more yet to be unearthed as the season goes on.

Salem will premiere on Sunday, April 20 at 10/9c on WGN America.
