A thesis statement is an argument or or supposition that you are going to make. The rest of your paper is dedicated to backing up your thesis. So, in your case, you might right something like,

" In Arthur Miller's The Crucible, John and Elizabeth Proctor are characters of both contrast and reflection...."

THe rest of your paper backs this up.
