John Proctor runs to Parris to explain the incident. Proctor: Parris! You won’t believe what happened! It’s Elizabeth! She’s… she’s… dead!
Danforth: Do you know any reason as to why Abigail would want to do such a thing? Proctor: I… I know of one reason. Parris: Well? What is it John? Proctor: Jealousy! Abigail was jealous of my relationship with Elizabeth, but I never thought she would do something so evil. Danforth: Things like this can not go overlooked. We must take action immediately! Find Abigail, and bring her here for questioning! Abigail is brought to the court for questioning Danforth: Do you have reason to wish death upon Elizabeth Proctor with the help of the Devil.
