This storyboard does not have a description.
Francis and Giles are arguing with Danforth to set their wives free from prison. They also want to expose the girls for lying. Danforth says "I judge nothing." which is ironic because he is a judge.
John Proctor hands Danforth a deposition signed by ninety-one people of Salem claiming that they have not seen any witchcraft from Rebecca Nurse, Proctor's wife, and Martha Corey. Mary Warren also says that the girls have been faking their sighting of witchcraft.
Parris is trying to see if Mary Warren is telling the truth, that the girls are lying about seeing spirits. Parris tells her to faint on command. Mary Warren can not faint. She will only prentend to faint when the other girls faint as well.
Abigail is trying to distract the court from Mary Warren while she is exposing her for being a liar. So she is screaming and yelling that a bird (which is a symbol for Mary Warren's spirit) is flying above her. Which is imperceptible to everyone else in the room.
John Proctor is trying to show that Abigail is not a person to be trusted. So he says that he cheated on Elizabeth with Abigail. This is symbolic to show that Abigail is not the person everyone thinks she is.
Elizabeth is brought into the courtroom to be questioned if John cheated on her or not. Elizabeth lies and says he did not cheat. This is ironic because earlier in the story John says that Elizabeth does not lie ever. This will lead to John's arrest and set to be hung.
