Of course we knew Mary and John would get their happy ending, but what of the townsfolk who are now left at the mercy of a bad witch. I don't even see Anne becoming a good person in the future so they're pretty much screwed on that front. Dorcas is a child left on her own since Anne killed her protector, Isaac. That's what I kept thinking about the finale: that it was choppy and pieced together, especially the ending. If I'm remembering correctly, when Anne discovered she was a witch didn't she say she would help people? I could be wrong on that so please correct me but, for some reason, I'm remembering her saying something to that effect to maybe Mary (?). I felt it was also particularly cruel to seal Tituba's mouth shut and send her away on a slave ship with "people like her"? Given, Tituba had a big part in keeping with Satan's rising and Salem's demise. It made me think wtf did they do to Anne and they just destroyed her character completely.
I'm wondering if they either had a feeling they were getting cancelled while filming in actually thinking out the ending, which I doubt because it was messy and rushed, or did they find out after filming and decided to quickly throw together an ending for the series instead of what felt like a cliffhanger. Either way, it wasn't satisfying.
"I have EXORCISED the demon"
I wouldn't say destroyed. Annes been on this path for some time. I will say the final change was a leap.
