It keeps getting better
20 June 2014 | by (Cipolletti) – See all my reviews

another great episode, with very dark sets but well illuminated and the acting keeps good ( Janet Montgomery has a good performance, is not as hateful as before)

You'll see in this episode how Cptn Alden and Cotton have a confrontation with the witch they've captured, in the woods. Things doesn't go well.

Meanwhile,Miss Sibley spends time with Mercy lewis, after having discovered her in the woods with friend and fearing she betrays her. Miss Sibley tells her a story which is an analogy of her life, in that moment some flashback appear and we as spectator understand how she became the Miss Sibley. Thats good.

But Mercy then runs away to the woods scary, and Miss Sibley follows her. They met the witch that Alden and Cotton were interrogating, that old witch tells Miss Sibley that she wants Capt Alden dead because he weakens her.
