‘Salem’ 1×05 recap: How to catch a witch

Salem 1x05 Cotton box

The characters on Salem are like volatile chemicals: Any two mixed together can create an explosive reaction. This week’s episode featured some surprising pairings, including Tituba and Magistrate Hale, Mary and Mercy, and of course, the always entertaining John (Shane West) and Cotton (Seth Gabel). Who would have expected any of these couples to become allies? It’s amazing how a mutual goal can unite two opposing parties. Whether it’s power, safety, or opening a magic box, nothing brings people together like wanting—or hating—the same thing.

Of course, Cotton and John were the highlight of the episode, from their hilarious plotting to catch a witch using an evil wooden box, to John’s unapologetic cockblocking of Cotton and his ladyfriend. This episode made me wish I had the time and resources to photo recap this show, because…wow. Here’s one more for the road:
