Do you agree that Elizabeth's suspicions and pains are warranted in Act 2?

Yes, Elizabeth's suspicions and pains are completely justified. Abigail wants one thing, and that is Elizabeth's husband John. The danicing in the foest had nothing to do with Elizabeth, but As Abigail's lies grow larger and stronger, she sees a perfect way of ridding herself of the 'wife.'
Would Abigail's plan come to fruition.......... definitely not, but Abigail is just devious enough (and confidantly 'stupid' if you will) to think she can pull it all off. The initial charges of witchcraft were used to get herself out of trouble; her accusation of Elizabeth had only one purpose. Elizabeth also knows what the townspeople are like......... it's one of the reason she and her family had started worshipping God in their own home rather than the church. This also makes her a prime target.
