Salem Season 2 started up last week on WGN America and the characters have found themselves in a very different situation after the Great Rite at the end of Season 1. Mercy (Elise Eberle) is now fighting against Mary (Janet Montgomery) and performing some very disturbing spells involving birds and reproductive organs. She’s a rogue now and it looks like she’s going to be a major player in the coming witch war.
On the other hand, poor Isaac (Iddo Goldberg) is the first victim of the witch plague, and is suffering, as Isaac tends to do. I recently visited the Salem set in Shreveport, Louisiana and spoke to Eberle and Goldberg. Check out what they had to say about what’s coming in Season 2, the incredibly creepy room we filmed in and the power Mercy is about to wield.
Check back in, because we have more interviews with the cast and crew on the way. Salem returns to WGN America on Sunday.
