“Salem” started its second season this month with a terrifying bang and some new characters that are going to shake up this tiny Puritan community more than it already has been. The Witch War has begun; allegiances have fallen and trust has been broken. Now it’s every man, woman, child, and witch for themselves.
I was skeptical about “Salem” at first. It’s a bit soap opera-y. It’s not entirely historically accurate…not at all really (there are tiny bits here and there that call on actual historical events as we know them).
