Loyalties Are Tested On An All-New Episode Of ‘Salem’ Jan 4
WGN America’s supernatural thriller “Salem” returns in the new year with an all-new episode airing Wednesday, January 4 at 9:00 pm ET/PT. In “The Man Who Was Thursday” – written by Kelly Sounders and Brian Peterson, and directed by Jen Lynch (“Surveillance”) – Anne tells Cotton the great news of her pregnancy but is forced to partake in an unthinkable action that will wipe Gloriana of her memories. While Alden prepares to kill the Sentinel, Mary continues to trick Sebastian into thinking she loves him. Completely “under her spell,” Sebastian tells her that he will find a way to destroy the Boy once and for all where an epic plan of twists and turn unravel and true loyalties surface.
The third season of “Salem” dawns with the triumph of the witches’ plan to remake the New World by bringing the devil to earth and making Salem his capital. But the devil is a liar, and instead of a New World free from murderous Puritan hypocrisy, his own plan will bring nothing but death and slavery with the ultimate aim of leading humanity to destroy itself. And there’s only one person on earth who can beat the devil — the very witch that birthed him, his mother, Mary Sibley. The only problem is—she’s dead. Or is she?
From creators and writers Brannon Braga and Adam Simon, “Salem” is a gripping one-hour supernatural drama that boldly re-imagines the infamous 17th century witch trials in colonial Massachusetts in a world where witches are real, but they are not who or what they seem. The series stars Janet Montgomery (“Human Target,” “Made in Jersey”), Shane West (“Nikita,” “ER”), Seth Gabel (“Arrow,” “Fringe”), Ashley Madekwe (“Revenge”), Tamzin Merchant (“Jane Eyre”), Elise Eberle (“The Astronaut Farmer”) and Iddo Goldberg (“Mob City”). New to the cast of “Salem” this season are Grammy-awarded nominated artist Marilyn Manson and Samuel Roukin (“TURN: Washington’s Spies”).
