Question about season 2...Why did John Alden turn violently against....
killing all witches? hi guys, i am a new fan/viewer of this show and i'm now up to season 2. i can't remember exactly but didn't John choose to go to the rendezvous point to meet Mary even AFTER she told him she was a witch? he was prepared to leave Salem with her in spite of her witchery. as far as he knows (if i remember correctly) it was only his being shot that night that derailed his and Mary's plan to leave the town and that Mary may have just been late for their rendezvous meeting time.
now completely out of nowhere in season 2's first ep, John is hellbent on destroying any and all witches. interestingly enough John basically did what Mary did in that he sold his soul (sort of) to the Native American spirits (or whatever). he seems completely out of character going by his actions in season 1's finale (as i listed in this thread post).
i'm only on ep.4 of season 2 so maybe i'm jumping the gun on this topic but is it explained/revealed on why John had such a dramatic change in character or is it just the writing in this one particular instance is iffy?
