Act two begins to show us the hypocrisy and petty grievances being cast around town under the guise of witchcraft. Proctor's house seems a good prologue for the next setting. In court we have further dramatics overshadowing common sense. Abigail is desperate but still able to manipulate other girls including Marry Warren. Miller clearly shows the court's eagerness to accept accusations of witchcraft through Abigail's theatrics. The court can clearly be seen to have a self-serving agenda.
