Salem exclusive: Co-creator Adam Simon on that Mary shocker from last night's ep

[Spoiler alert: The following discusses details from the Season 3 episode of Salem, "The Reckoning"]

The devil is a bit of a jerk, isn't he? Not only does his henchman, The Sentinel, put Mary Sibley's soul in a horrid mental dungeon (after, y'know, she got squeezed to death), but he ends the episode by violently extracting her elemental powers from his mother's body. So, the top witch of Salem is now powerless?

But hey, it wasn't all bad news. Cotton Mather swallowed down a pretty nasty concoction (and booze) to vomit out his wife's familiar, Brown Jenkins. Okay, just kidding; that bit of good news won't last for long since Anne is going to be pretty peeved off when she find out. And it's hard to look at the bright side of the happenings in Salem -- unless you count the brightness of the skies filled with the color of blood (and snow made of the ashes of burnt townsfolk, which is just delightful for the devil to taste).

So if you were as shocked as us by all the crazy times happening in Salem last night, and you're right to be, you're going to want to check out our exclusive "writer's wrap" with co-creator/producer Adam Simon. In the video below, Simon breaks down all the magical happenings, and violent vomitings, that happened to our characters in the Season 3 episode "The Reckoning," and what it might mean for the plagued town.
