Mary pretends to be sleeping and "can't wake". When people leave Abigail threatens them.
During the court when Mary tries to confess that all the girls were lying, Abigail claims there is a bird that wants to attack them and then Mary plays along so they will quit blaming her. The girls were screaming and crying blaming Proctor.
Proctor signed the confession papers but ripped them up and went on a rage because he didn't want his name to be ruined. He wanted his name to be clean and not a lie. He was hung along with Rebecca Nurse.
